One of the most popular music artists in the world, the Canadian rapper Drake, bets a whopping 1.26 million dollars in bitcoin on the Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals. And judging by the bet he made, Drake definitely backs the Los Angeles Rams to win the final.
Moreover, Drake used the crypto betting platform Stake to place a bet of just over $471.000 in bitcoin, for the Rams to win the Super Bowl. And as per the details, this includes the extra time as well.
Drake also decided to bet $392.000 in bitcoin on Odell Beckham Jr., the wide receiver of the Los Angeles Rams, to score more than 0.5 touchdowns during the Super Bowl. Interestingly, Drake placed another $392.000 on Odell Beckham to rush more than 62.5 yards.
When asked about the motives behind the bets, Drake simply stated that ‘all bets are on the family’. This is a clear hint on Odell Beckham Jr., being that the Canadian rapper is a good friend with the Rams’ wide receiver.
Speaking of which, Beckham Jr., is no stranger to crypto, i.e. bitcoin. In fact, the wider receiver of the Rams is an official partner of Cash App, and as a result of this partnership, the NFL star even announced that he will receive his upcoming paycheck in the form of bitcoin.
Furthermore, as part of the campaign with Cash App, Beckham Jr. even offered to gift his fans $1 million in bitcoin. Yet, according to several media outlets, the idea to receive his paycheck in bitcoin actually hurts Odell financially.
And that is due to the massive crash of the crypto market that occurred just a month ago, in early January. While bitcoin is slowly getting back to its former glory, Odell’s earnings definitely took a hit during that turbulent period.
It is no secret that ever since the Rams made the move from St. Louis to Los Angeles, Drake is a huge fan of the NFL franchise. And considering his close friendship with Odell Beckham Jr., it is definitely no surprise that Drake bets 1.26 million dollars in bitcoin on the Rams to win the Super Bowl.
The only thing that remains for us is to wait until the 13th of February, and just observe whether Drake made the right bet.
