- Drake has a track record of losing wagers at sporting events.
- He has -350 odds to support the Kansas City Chiefs on Super Bowl Sunday.
- The Chiefs are underdogs, but Drake just won $2 million on them in the AFC Championship Game.
LAS VEGAS - Drake, arguably the biggest rapper/singer in the world, is famously invested in sports and sports gambling.
However, he’s also famously unlucky, leading to many people decrying the “Drake Curse” or the perception that any team he backs will lose.
The Drake Curse lore goes deep. In 2014, Drake showed up on Kentucky’s campus to support the Wildcats – who immediately proceeded to choke against Wisconsin.
It’s even international. Layvin Kurzawa, playing for soccer club Paris Saint-Germain, posed for a picture with Drake immediately before PSG’s worst league defeat in 19 years, a 5-1 loss to Lille.
It’s so bad that even teams in other countries are joking about the Curse:

This all begs the question…which team will Drake be backing, and should bettors short them?
Drake Curse - What team apparel Will Drake be Wearing on Super Bowl Sunday?
- Kansas City Chiefs -350
- Philadelphia Eagles +245
Drake is favored to back the Kansas City Chiefs, which might normally be bad news for Chiefs fans.
However, it’s possible that Drake’s luck is turning around. He won $2 million betting on the Chiefs to win the AFC Championship Game.
This is likely a big reason why he’s expected to back the Chiefs in the Super Bowl – he might want to stick with his winning play.
Unfortunately, the online sportsbooks are not offering any conditional wagers on this prop – it’s limited to singles only.
This means that NFL betting fans cannot construct a parlay of Drake to back the Chiefs and the Eagles to win the Super Bowl.
