    Published on:

    Drake’s Sports Betting Woes Continue in 2024

    Drake, the renowned rapper and Toronto native, has been facing a string of bad luck in the sports betting world in 2024. Known for his unwavering support for Canadian soccer, Drake recently placed a hefty bet of $300K on his home team to win against Argentina in the Copa America game. With odds of 9.6-to-1, the potential winnings amounted to a staggering $2.88 million. However, Drake’s hopes were dashed as Canada suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Argentina, resulting in yet another significant loss for the rapper.

    This unfortunate turn of events adds to a series of sports betting misfortunes for Drake in 2024. Earlier in the year, he lost $500K on the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals and another $500K on the Edmonton Oilers in the Stanley Cup. The rapper’s streak of bad breaks has reignited talks of the infamous “Drake curse,” with critics pointing to his recent losses as evidence of his supposed jinx.

    Despite his setbacks in the sports betting arena, Drake remains a passionate supporter of Canadian soccer and has been actively involved in promoting the sport. His dedication to the game was evident in his music video for “Started from the Bottom” and his excitement for the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2026, which will be held in Toronto.

    As Drake navigates through the highs and lows of the sports betting world, fans and critics alike will be watching closely to see if he can break free from the “curse” that seems to follow him.
