Drake backed Taylor Swift’s new boo Travis Kelce and the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl, placing a $1.15 million wager on the big game.  

Drake has more reasons than most to celebrate the Chiefs Super Bowl LVIII victory after winning more than $2m on the game, and it’s all down to Taylor Swift. 

The OVO honcho had San Francisco 49ers fans hoping the “Drake curse” worked in their favor after placing a $1.15 million wager on the Kansas City Chiefs to win the big game. The “Search & Rescue” hitmaker has become notorious for backing the loser ahead of high-profile sporting events. 

On Sunday (February 11), Drake took to Instagram to share his betting slip ahead of the Super Bowl. He bet $1.15 million on the Chiefs to win, with a payout of $2.346 million. 

“I can’t bet against the swifties,” Drake penned in the caption, referring to Chiefs star Travis Kelce’s high-profile relationship with pop sensation Taylor Swift.

However, luckily for the Toronto superstar, the “Drake curse” failed to materialize, and the Chiefs defeated the 49ers in a 25-22 overtime victory to win their third Super Bowl in five years. The victory was only the second overtime game in Super Bowl history, according to ESPN.

The $1.15 million bet scored him a gain of $1.196 million. Drake celebrated the mammoth win in a video posted on his Instagram Story. “I won a million dollars,” he shared.  

Meanwhile, last October, the serial gambler and ambassador of online casino and gambling company Stake lost his $400,000 bet on Jake Paul in his fight against Tommy Fury. 

Paul jokingly blamed the “Drake curse” after losing the fight in an eight-round split decision. “F###, this is Drake’s fault,” he stated. “Drake why you do this to me.”
