Canadian rapper Aubrey Drake Graham, popular among music fans like Drake, made a huge bet of $1.26 million in bitcoin on the Super Bowl game between the Los Angeles Rams (LA Rams) and the Cincinnati Bengals. He seems to have good prediction skills as he made $300,000 after the referee’s final whistle. Drake’s Bitcoin Bets The Super Bowl game traditionally attracts the attention of millions of Americans each year. Last night’s game was watched by more than 90 million people in the US alone. The bookmakers use the hype around it to offer all kinds of bets. Such unusual ones are: “Where will the coin land – heads or tails”, “Will introduce a player after the game”, “Which crypto company commercial will air first”, and many more. The renowned musician Drake did not bet on such bizarre events. Instead, he bet about $472,000 on LA Rams to win the title, about $400,000 on Odell Beckham Jr. (OBJ) to catch a touchdown and $400,000 on the football player to have more than 62.5 receiving yards. The Los Angeles team won 23-20. Taking the coefficient into account, Drake has paid out over $240,000 worth of BTC. Additionally, LA Rams star OBJ caught the first touchdown in the game, netting the rapper about $453,000 in the leading digital asset. Unfortunately for Drake, Odell left Beckham Jr. the game with an injury in the fourth quarter and thus could not gain more than 62.5 receiving yards. As such, simple math shows that the Canadian singer has profited $300,000 worth of BTC from his Super Bowl predictions.
