Drake only wins ONE of his seven “psychotic” Super Bowl bets… but still manages to earn a whopping $512,000 in profit after raking in $1.5 million in a Kansas City Chiefs win
Drake placed seven massive bets at Sunday’s Super Bowl and walked away with a handsome win despite a 14% win rate.
The Canadian rapper wagered a total of $965,000 on the bets and won $1.477 million for a total profit of $512,000, all of which came from the Chiefs winning the game.
Drake celebrated on Instagram, posting a story of Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce celebrating, with the caption: “Pay this man his MONEY Eddie @Stake.”
The ‘Laugh Now Cry Later’ artist took to Instagram on Thursday night to show off his picks for the Chiefs-Eagles game which Philadelphia was set to win by 1.5 points but ended up winning 38-35 against the top-flight Chiefs offense lost.
“My psychotic bets for Sunday are in @stake,” he wrote under the post. ‘Please don’t analyze the logic behind these bets, there isn’t any.’

It’s not the first time that the musician, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, has attracted attention with his bold bets.
Last month, he scored a $2 million payout by placing a $1 million win bet on the Chiefs to beat the Bengals in the AFC Championship. However, there were also great losses.
In December, Drake wagered $1 million on Argentina beating France in regulation in the World Cup final. Unfortunately, Lionel Messi & Co defeated the French in a dramatic penalty shootout.
Additionally, in November, he threw down $2 million worth of Canadian dollars for Israel Adesanya to win UFC 281 against Alex Pereira, who won by KO in the fifth round.
