The Six God recently lost a sizable $500,000 bet on the Edmonton Oilers to win the Stanley Cup. 

His hopes were dashed when the Florida Panthers clinched Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final with a 2-1 victory. Had the bet hit, Drake would have netted $1.025 million. Sheesh. They call that a bad beat in the betting world.

Drake’s latest betting loss follows another high-stakes wager where Drake bet $500,000 on the Dallas Mavericks to win the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics. 

Unfortunately for Drake, the Celtics triumphed over the Mavericks in five games, securing their 18th NBA title. If the Mavericks had won, Drake would have earned $1.375 million. SMH.

But hey, the sports Gods have their agenda. And Drake is a grown-up with a lot of bread to risk. 

Nevertheless, his gambling L’s adds to the growing narrative of the “Drake Curse,” a phenomenon where teams and athletes seem to lose when Drake publicly supports them or bets on their success.

Not for nothing, the Oilers showed promise by nearly overcoming a 3-0 series deficit. Connor McDavid, who earned the Conn Smythe Trophy as the NHL playoff MVP, played a significant role in their comeback with three goals and five assists in Games 4 and 5. However, the Oilers couldn’t complete the historic rally, leaving the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs as the only team to have ever rebounded from a 3-0 deficit in the Stanley Cup Final.

FTR, we don’t pay too much attention in curses and superstitions, especially when it comes to betting. Here’s what it is. Drake made some bets and lost. It’s that simple and it happens. Unfortunately, with a gambler of Drake’s caliber and scale, when he loses, he tends to lose big. But in the average mere mortal’s eyes, because the numbers are enormous it looks devastating. But for Drake, let’s be real. He’s more than likely betting with play money. Does it really hurt him? Eh, probably not.
