Drake Bets $650,000 On India In 2024 T20 World Cup Clash Against Pakistan

Canadian rapper Drake has ventured further into the world of sports betting, this time placing a substantial wager on cricket. Ahead of the 2024 T20 World Cup Group A clash between India and Pakistan, Drake has bet a massive $650,000 on India to emerge victorious. The highly anticipated match is set to take place on Sunday, June 9, at the Nassau County International Stadium in New York.

Drake shared his bet via an Instagram story, confirming the hefty wager and expressing his confidence in the Indian team. If India, led by Rohit Sharma, wins the match, Drake stands to collect a total of $910,000, netting a profit of approximately $260,000. This isn’t the first time Drake has engaged in high-profile sports betting.

Known for his wagers across various sports, he has previously placed significant bets on events in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Formula One, international and club football, and the National Football League (NFL). Despite a mixed track record, including his recent unsuccessful bet on the Dallas Mavericks in the 2024 NBA Finals, Drake remains undeterred.

Drake’s betting activities have contributed to the infamous ‘Drake Curse’—a phenomenon where the teams he bets on often lose important matches. However, he did break this streak with a successful bet on Argentina to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup. His interest in cricket was first noted when he placed a $250,000 bet on the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to win the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) final against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). KKR’s victory earned him $446,562.

Drake’s High-Stakes Cricket Bet: Will India’s Momentum Defy the Rivalry?

Drake’s current bet on India represents his first significant venture into international cricket. The Men in Blue are favoured to win, especially after their recent triumph over Ireland in their opening game of the 2024 T20 World Cup. However, Pakistan’s unpredictability and the intense rivalry between the two teams add an element of uncertainty to the outcome.

India’s strong form and the high stakes of the match make this bet particularly intriguing. As the cricketing world watches this high-voltage encounter, Drake’s wager has added another layer of excitement to an already thrilling rivalry. Whether the ‘Drake Curse’ will strike again or if he will continue his winning streak in cricket remains to be seen.
