Rapper Drake makes $300,000 after betting $1.25 million on Super Bowl

Rapper Drake is making a $300,000 profit after betting $1.25 million on the Super Bowl, but a late-game injury to Odell Beckham Jr. just before halftime likely cost him a mind-boggling $700,000.

  • Drake wagered about $1.25 million in bitcoin on three separate Super Bowl bets.
  • Two came as the Los Angeles Rams won and Odell Beckham Jr. scored a touchdown.
  • Thus, the rapper who was present at the game accumulated $1.55 million in bitcoins.
  • However, he could have made $700,000 more if Beckham Jr hadn’t been injured.

Drake’s two big bets on Super Bowl LVI came after the Los Angeles Rams beat the Cincinnati Bengals 23–20.

Last week, the Canadian rapper posted a post on Instagram with the headline “All bets on the family” to show his followers the bets he made ahead of the showdown in California.

He wagered about $1.25 million in bitcoin (in Canadian dollars) on three separate opportunities: the Los Angeles Rams would win, Odell Beckham Jr. would score a touchdown anytime, and Beckham Jr. would record over 62.5 receiving yards. .

HUGE BET Drake

$470,000 to Los Angeles Rams for Super Bowl win – WON $710,000.

$390,000 on Odell Beckham Jr. for a touchdown at any time – WON $840,000

$390,000 on Odell Beckham Jr. for 62.5+ receiving yards – LOSS ($700,000 potential win)

OBJ, who commented “it’s time” under the post, performed for his friend as the Rams won their second Super Bowl crown. This netted Drake about $710,000 in Bitcoin.

The wide receiver made a perfect start to the game, scoring a 17-yard touchdown in the first quarter, netting the rapper another $840,000, meaning he made a total profit of around $300,000 in Bitcoin.

However, a non-contact knee injury in the second quarter meant that Beckham Jr. limped off the field and missed Drake’s third bid as he received only two passes for 52 yards.

If he had stayed on the field and passed the 62.5 yard mark, he would have pocketed Drake another $700,000 in bitcoin.

In the run-up to the Super Bowl, Beckham Jr. was asked about betting and he replied, “Dude, I’ve got to help him.”

“I must help him,” he repeated. “But at the end of the day, bro, I just want to be able to hold this trophy and look your brothers in the eye and say, ‘Dude, we did it. And just feel this joy.

“Honestly, I feel like if I play my game, I catch everything that comes my way, I make games, I stay locked up, one game at a time, all of these things are very possible.”
