Drake said he had bet almost $1 million (£829,500) on “psychotic” bets on the Super Bowl this weekend.
This week, the rapper took to Instagram to share the numerous bets he made on the game, which will take place at State Farm Stadium in Arizona on Sunday (February 12) and will see the Kansas City Chiefs play the Philadelphia Eagles.
“My psychotic bets for Sunday at @stake,” he wrote in the caption. “Please do not analyze the logic of these bets, there is none.”
Drake bet $700,000 (£580,650) on the Kansas City Chiefs’ win, $50,000 (£41,475) on Patrick Mahomes, who became the Chiefs’ first touchdown scorer, and another $50,000 on Juju Smith-Schuster, who became the Chiefs’ first scorer.
He also bet $50,000 on the Kansas City Chiefs winning both halves, $30,000 (£24,885) on the Chiefs winning each quarter, $25,000 (£20,737.50) on Travis Kelsey winning the MVP, and $60,000 (£49,776 pounds sterling) to win the MVP in the tight end.

If he had won all seven bets, Drake could have won more than $4.5 million (£3.7 million).
The artist previously won $2.1 million (£1.7 million) after a successful bet on the Kansas City Chiefs in January after they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship game and advanced to the Super Bowl.
However, Drake has not always been so successful when it comes to sports betting — in most cases he is known to have backed the wrong horse, which gave rise to the “Drake’s curse” theory. He recently lost $1 million betting that Argentina would win the World Cup in regular time, and despite the fact that they defeated France, he lost the bet because the game had to go into extra time.
Other teams lost matches after posing with Drake or a rapper in one of their T-shirts. For example, Barcelona became a victim of the notorious curse back in October after the rapper bet on their victory in the game against Real Madrid.
For the game, which in Spain was called “El Clasico”, Barcelona put on a special uniform dedicated to the rapper, with an image of his owl OVO as part of its sponsorship with Spotify.
Rihanna is set to perform during the Super Bowl halftime this year, performing live for the first time in five years. Earlier this week, at a press conference, she announced that she had already changed the setlist of her 13-minute show 39 times.
