Drake Places $1.76 Million Bet On The Super Bowl In Bitcoin

It’s not enough to simply watch the game when you’re a chart-topping international music artist. You need to stunt on the plebs. We’re talking private jet rides to the stadium… exclusive views of the action… huge fuck-off viewing parties for those who don’t even want to associate with ordinary folk. And if you’re Drake, you throw down close to $2 million for a Super Bowl LVI bet (processed in Bitcoin, for some reason).

Taking to Instagram with a series of screenshots captioned “All bets are in on the family”, 6 God revealed CA$1.6 million / AU$1.76 million is currently at stake here:

  • CA$600,000 / AU$659,000 on the Los Angeles Rams beating the Cincinnati Bengals
  • CA$500,000 / AU$549,000 on Rams wide receiver and close friend Odell Beckham Jr to score more than 62.5 receiving yards
  • CA$500,000 / AU$549,000 on Odell Beckham Jr scoring a touchdown

If all goes to plan, this seven-figure punt could pay out CA$2.3 million / AU$2.5 million in total. A picture of Beckham’s gloves was also posted alongside said screenshots.

“Man… I’ve got to come through for him,” joked Odell Beckham Jr when prompted about Drake’s Super Bowl LVI bet last week; who actually lived with the Canadian rapper when he was recording Views From The Six back in 2016 and appeared in his Laugh Now, Cry Later music video a few years later.

“But ultimately, bro, I just want to be able to hold that trophy up, look your brothers in the eyes like: ‘Man, we did it.’ And just feel that joy.”

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

As noted by ESPN, setting aside the outcome of Super Bowl LVI, each bet Drake has placed on OBJ could very well be easy money. For reference, Beckham has managed to score a touchdown in six of his 11 games with the Rams this season and a least 63 receiving yards in four of those six games.

Drizzy won’t be the only one who could potentially be making it rain today, either. The lucrative one-year deal Odell Beckham Jr signed with Los Angeles last November outlines approximately US$3 million / AU$4.2 million worth of incentives paid accordingly to the Rams’ postseason success.

To date, US$2 million / AU$2.8 million of the agreed-upon package has already been unlocked. The 29-year-old talent will apparently receive an additional US$500,000 / AU$700,000 just for making a Super Bowl appearance with the Rams and US$1 million / AU$1.4 million if the team wins against the Bengals – each sum contingent on Beckham participating in at least one offensive play.

Let’s just hope for the sake of all parties involved the Drake curse still isn’t a thing.
