Drake FINALLY picks a winner: Canadian rapper succeeds in winning $1million over Chiefs to beat Bengals for AFC title after string of expensive upsets in football, boxing and MMA
Canadian singer Drake pocketed a $2 million payout by placing a $1 million winning bet on the Kansas City Chiefs to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in Sunday’s AFC Championship.
Drake’s support has become a popular sign for some sports teams after losing bets on Liverpool, Anthony Joshua and Conor McGregor in recent years.
Then last month, Drake bet $1 million on Argentina to beat France in regulation in the World Cup final. Unfortunately for him, Lionel Messi & Co. beat France in a huge draw.
Drake’s luck improved on Sunday when Kansas City’s Harrison Butker won the game on a 45-yard field goal with just seconds left. The 23-20 finish sent the Chiefs back to the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons.

On his Instagram story, he revealed that he dropped $1.1m for the Chiefs to beat the Bengals
Drake has experienced some heartache when it comes to dropping high-profile bets over the past few months.
The rapper recently lost a $1million bet for Argentina to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup final in the regular season – which never happened. He stood to receive $2.75m.
In November, Drake dropped $2m of Canadian dollars for Israel Adesanya to win UFC 281 over Alex Pereira. Unfortunately for the rapper, Pereira won in the fifth round by a knockout.
In October, Drake entered the world of both Spanish and English soccer, betting over CA$833,000 on a two-legged parlay for Barcelona to beat Real Madrid and for Arsenal to beat Leeds United.
The Gunners were able to catch the Whites. However, Xavi’s team fell to Los Blancos – with Drake missing out on a return of CA$3.9m.
