Canadian Grammy-winning rapper Drake is backing Kolkata Knight Riders in tonight’s final match against Sunrisers Hyderabad for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The 34-year-old rapper, who often places high bets on sports like basketball, American Football and Rugby, is making his “first ever cricket bet” in the IPL 2024 Final. 

Ahead of the anticipated match, the rapper took to his Instagram Stories to announce that he has placed a bet of $250,000 on KKR winning the IPL 2024 trophy. Sharing a screengrab of his bet receipt, he wrote, “Since @ovorajuju’s team is out, I am going with KKR for my first-ever cricket bet. Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo.”

The picture shows that if KKR wins, the rapper will win $425,000 in bitcoin. Check it out below!

Back in February, Drake placed a massive Bitcoin bet of $1.15 million on the Kansas City Chiefs to secure victory over the San Francisco 49ers and win Super Bowl LVIII. The Canadian artist shared a photo of his betting slip on social media with the caption, “I can’t bet against the Swifties,” referring to fans of pop sensation Taylor Swift. Drake won the bet and bagged a massive profit.

However, Drake’s track record in betting hasn’t always been smooth sailing. For instance, he faced losses of $1 million in the World Cup final between Argentina and France in 2023. He also lost a bet of $500,000 on Israel Adesanya to beat Sean Strickland by KO in UFC 293. He also lost $275,000 when Colby Covington defeated Jorge Masvidal at UFC 272.

However, last year, Drake seemingly broke the curse when he won around $300,000 in Bitcoin after betting on the Los Angeles Rams to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVII. He also won $25 million playing virtual roulette with French Montana in July 2023.
