Drake FINALLY picks a winner: Canadian rapper bets $1 million on Chiefs to beat Bengals for AFC title after string of costly misfires in football, boxing and MMA
Canadian rapper Drake earned 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 endorsement had become a notorious warning for some sports teams after losing bets on Liverpool, Anthony Joshua and Conor McGregor in recent years.
Last month, Drake bet $1 million on Argentina to beat France in regulation in the World Cup final. Unfortunately for him, Lionel Messi & Co. the French in a dramatic exchange of fire.
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 final sends the Chiefs back to the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons.

Drake has experienced some heartache when it comes to dropping high-stakes bets in recent months.
The rapper recently lost a $1 million bet on Argentina winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup in regular time – which didn’t happen. He stood to win $2.75 million.
In November, Drake threw $2 million worth of Canadian dollars to Israel Adesanya to win UFC 281 over Alex Pereira. Unfortunately for the rapper, Pereira won in the fifth round by knockout.
In October, Drake waded into the worlds of both Spanish and English football, placing over CA$833,000 on a two-stage parlay for Barcelona to beat Real Madrid and for Arsenal to beat Leeds United.
The Gunners were able to handle the Whites. However, Xavi’s side fell to Los Blancos – with Drake missing out on a CA$3.9 million return.
