Will ‘Drake’s Curse’ Strike Again? Canadian rapper places over ONE MILLION DOLLARS bet on Kansas City Chiefs to win Sunday’s AFC title game against Cincinnati Bengals
Canadian rapper Drake decided to tempt fate once again, placing a massive bet on the Kansas City Chiefs to win Sunday’s AFC championship game.
For the second straight season, the Chiefs will host the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC title game this Sunday night for a spot in Super Bowl LVII in Los Angeles.
Drake’s support has become a notorious omen for some sports teams, with many believing there is a “Drake Curse” for teams he wants to win.

On his Instagram story, he revealed that he lost $1.1 million to the Chiefs to beat the Bengals
As if the Kansas City Chiefs need any more bad luck, they will face the Bengals as star quarterback Patrick Mahomes deals with an ankle injury.
Mahomes sprained his right ankle high in a divisional round win against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.
While he says he’ll be ready to play on Sunday, that lack of mobility chance could hurt Kansas City’s chances of reaching their third Super Bowl in four seasons.
Additionally, they will play against the Bengals and quarterback Joe Burrow, who has never lost to the Chiefs in his NFL career. That includes a 27-24 Cincinnati win over KC earlier this season.

Drake has felt some heartache when it comes to stepping away from high-stakes betting in recent months.
The rapper recently lost a $1 million bet for Argentina to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup Final in regular time, which it didn’t. He was about to win $2.75 million.
In November, Drake knocked down C$2 million to Israel Adesanya to win UFC 281 over Alex Pereira. Unfortunately for the rapper, Pereira won in the fifth round by knockout.
In October, Drake broke into Spanish and English football, placing over CA$833,000 in a two-way parlay for Barcelona beating Real Madrid and Arsenal beating Leeds United.
The Gunners were able to handle the whites. However, Xavi’s team fell to Los Blancos, with Drake losing with a return of CA $3.9 million.
