Drizzy placed a $1.15 million bet on the Kansas City Chiefs to beat the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl on Sunday (February 11), with the 2.04 odds earning him a $2.346 million payout.
“I can’t bet against the swifties @stake,” he wrote in the caption of an Instagram post where he screenshotted his betting slip.
Drake’s allegiance to Swift paid off as the Chiefs went on to beat the 49ers 25-22, with Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes winning MVP for the second year running. Per his bet, he pocketed a cool $1.196 million in profit.
After the game, the 6 God posted a video on his Instagram Stories of him celebrating his lucrative win, which apparently involved a plate getting broken in the chaos.
“@stake.eddie thank you see ya when I see ya,” he wrote alongside the video, tagging the co-founder of gambling platform Stake.
The “Drake curse” has become a running joke over the years, with various athletes and sports teams often losing after being supported by the rapper.
For the Super Bowl last year, Drizzy tried his luck at reversing the curse by rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles and wearing the team’s jersey, all the while betting $700,000 on the Kansas City Chiefs to win.
His bet was ultimately successful, resulting in a payout of just over $1.4 million.
Drake previously rapped about Taylor Swift on “Red Button” from For All the Dogs Scary Hours Edition, giving her credit for her mass following and claiming she’s the only artist he’d push his album back for.
“Taylor Swift the only n-gga that I ever rated/ Only one could make me drop the album just a little later,” he rapped on the song.
