Drake bets $1.3M in Bitcoin on Bengals vs. Rams Super Bowl match

  • February 11, 2022

“All bets are in on the family,” says rapper Drake as he placed his hopes on Rams’ wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Drake spends his time betting more than $1 million in Bitcoin (BTC) on Super Bowl matches when he’s not running through the six with his woes.

The award-winning rapper recently shared that he placed BTC bets worth a total of $1.26 million on the upcoming Superbowl match between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams. 

Through the crypto sports betting platform Stake, the rapper bet over $471,000 for the Rams to be the winner, including overtime. Drake also expressed his confidence in the Rams’ wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. The musician placed around $392,000 on Beckham Jr. having more than 62.5 receiving yards and another $392,000 on the wide receiver having over 0.5 anytime touchdowns.

Drake wrote, “All bets are in on the family.” Beckham Jr. replied to the post, saying, “It’s time.” This triggered a response from Bengals fan and football veteran Charles James. “Yep, you just confirmed it! I’m Cincinnati! Burrow for the win. Call a reasonable number.”

A few months back, Beckham Jr. partnered with Cash App and announced that he would take his NFL salary in BTC while promising to give back $1 million in BTC to his fans. The player’s 2021 season earnings are estimated to go up to $4.25 million. However, a sports analyst argued that Beckham Jr. faced losses because of the recent market crash and hefty taxes.

Meanwhile, the National Football League will be giving away limited-edition nonfungible tokens (NFT) to fans who will be present in the Super Bowl’s return to Los Angeles on Feb. 13. The NFT will commemorate the game day by giving a customized digital keepsake that features the unique section and row of the attendee.
