Having wagered $1 million on Argentina to defeat France in the World Cup final’s regular time, Canadian rapper Drake has lost yet another large wager. After 90 minutes of play at the Lusail Stadium, the score remained tied at 2-2, negating Drake’s wager. On social media, a video of Drake supporting Argentina in the World Cup final while sporting the Napoli jersey from Serie A’s top team surfaced.
On Instagram, the rapper shared the stake. If Argentina won in the first 90 minutes at the Lusail Stadium, the wager would have paid him $2.75 million in returns. The Canadian has made a number of enormous bets on sporting events recently. For example, when Israel Adesanya faced Alex Pereira last month to defend his title, he lost more than $2 million of his wager on the former UFC champion.
Drake previously spent $649,00 on an accumulator that included Barcelona defeating Real Madrid in the El Clasico and Arsenal defeating Leeds in a football game. Despite Barcelona losing 3-1 to Real Madrid, Manchester United beat Leeds 1-0 in the Premier League. Drake bet $230,000 on Charles Leclerc to win the Spanish Grand Prix this year, but the Ferrari driver’s engine failed. Numerous teams and sportsmen have lost forthcoming sporting events after making touch with the artist, which has been referred to as the “Drake curse” by many.
