Rapper Drake Places A Massive Bet on Team India Ahead of T20 World Cup Clash Against Pakistan

Team India

Renowned rapper Drake, known for his ventures into the world of betting, has set his sights on cricket. In a bold move, he placed a staggering $650,000 bet on Team India to defeat Pakistan in the upcoming Group A match of the 2024 T20 World Cup. The high-stakes contest is scheduled to take place at the Nassau County International Stadium in New York on Sunday, June 9.

If Team India, led by Rohit Sharma and company, emerges victorious, Drake stands to win a total of $910,000, resulting in a profit of approximately $260,000. However, given Pakistan’s unpredictable nature and the intensity of the rivalry, this bet is not without risks.

The Men in Blue are favorites, having secured a win against Ireland in their opening match, while Pakistan suffered a humiliating loss to co-hosts USA recently.

Will The Drake Curse Hit Team India?

Drake’s betting portfolio extends beyond cricket, with previous wagers on events like the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Formula One, international and club football, and the National Football League. Despite his recent misstep in betting on the Dallas Mavericks to beat the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the 2024 NBA Finals, Drake remains undeterred.

His track record in cricket is currently 1 for 1, having successfully backed the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to win the IPL 2024 title against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

As the T20 World Cup clash unfolds, all eyes will be on the outcome of Drake’s colossal bet. Will Team India live up to his expectations, or will the notorious “Drake Curse” strike again? Only time will tell, but the excitement surrounding this high-stakes match is palpable. Cricket enthusiasts and gamblers alike eagerly await the showdown between these arch-rivals on the cricketing stage.
