Grammy Award-winning rapper and musician Drake is also an avid sports fan. He routinely rocks the gear of his preferred team for championship games across all major pro and college leagues.
Drake is also an avid sports bettor and has a financial interest in Stake, a Canadian-based sportsbook. He routinely posts his bets for major sporting events through Stake, but the validity of these wagers is questionable due to his standing as a partial owner.
The following $700,000 bet on the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl will earn Drake $1,477,000 if KC wins.

He has also placed a few prop bets on the first player on the Chiefs to score, Super Bowl MVP odds, and that KC will score in both the first and second halves.
Pop culture enthusiasts and Super Bowl betting sites have noticed a trend where the team he is wearing loses the Super Bowl, NBA Finals, CFP National Championship, March Madness, the Stanley Cup Finals, or the World Series.
It is known as the Drake Curse, causing superstitious fans to panic.
Due to the enormous popularity of Super Bowl prop bets, NFL sportsbooks have created Drake odds that will pay out on Sunday.
Drake Curse Betting – What Team Apparel Will Drake Be Wearing On Super Bowl Sunday
- Kansas City Chiefs -350
- Philadelphia Eagles +245
This Drake prop bet from Bovada Sportsbook implies that he’ll be wearing Kansas City Chiefs clothes to watch the big game. If the bets that he placed weren’t enough of a clue, gamblers can watch Drake perform at tonight’s h.wood Homecoming, a Super Bowl warmup party in Scottsdale, Arizona, to see what he’s wearing.
Since Drake will be in town for the big game, Super Bowl Halftime Show prop bets are now taking action on if he’ll appear alongside Rihanna.
Super Bowl Halftime Appearance (MyBookie)
- Drake on Stage – Yes EVEN
- Drake on Stage – No -140
A Drake-less halftime is favored, but an appearance is coming in at even odds. There’s a solid shot that he shows up and sings “Take Care” with Rihanna on vocals. 2-to-1 payouts are being offered on it happening.
Who Will Be Mentioned First During The Super Bowl LVII Broadcast? (BetOnline)
- Drake -1000
- Mattress Mack +550
Another famous championship game bettor is Mattress Mack (Jim McIngvale), owner of Gallery Furniture stores out of Houston, Texas. Mack has already placed a $1 million bet on the Philadelphia Eagles to win Super Bowl LVII.
BetMGM will pay Mack $800,000 if the Eagles win.
Like Drake, Mattress Mack has placed several unsuccessful bets in his time. Readers can earn some cash by betting on who will be mentioned first during the Super Bowl broadcast – Mack or Drake.
The likelihood of both names being dropped during television coverage is good due to their high-profile wagers and that they are placed on opposing teams.
Just like the real Drake vs. Mack matchup, this prop creates its own unique pairing of competitors from a different angle.
Super Bowl 57 coverage begins this Sunday at 6:30 PM on FOX.
