As an analyst with extensive experience in the sports betting and cryptocurrency markets, I cannot help but express my concern over Drake’s recent betting ventures. His latest bet on the Dallas Mavericks to win the NBA finals resulted in a substantial loss of $500,000 worth of Bitcoin. This loss comes after a string of unsuccessful predictions that have cost him millions in potential profits.


    Drake suffered a substantial crypto loss after betting on the Dallas Mavericks to win the NBA finals.
    Additionally, he placed another $500,000 BTC bet on the Edmonton Oilers to win the NHL Stanley Cup Finals, continuing his risky wagering streak.

Not Picking the Right Horse

As a financial analyst, I would rephrase that sentence as follows: I discovered that Drake, the renowned Canadian rapper and actor whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham, sold off approximately $500,000 worth of Bitcoin (BTC) in the wake of placing a bet on the Dallas Mavericks to secure victory against their opponents, the Boston Celtics, in the NBA finals.

Regrettably for him, the Massachusetts team came out on top with a score of 106-88 in the last game on June 18. Consequently, the Celtics clinched the series 4-1 and earned their league-record 18th championship title.

As an analyst, I’d like to point out that a triumph by the Mavericks would have resulted in a significant gain for Drake, amounting to approximately 875,000 dollars in Bitcoin.

The rapper can potentially recoup some of his previous Bitcoin losses by making another significant wager. He placed a bet worth half a million dollars on the Edmonton Oilers to win the NHL Stanley Cup Finals against the Florida Panthers. If the Oilers emerge victorious, Drake will earn approximately $500,000 in profits from this BTC investment. The game is set to take place later today (June 18).

‘The Drake Curse’

A Canadian enthusiast is deeply into wagering on diverse sports contests. Regrettably, his predictions frequently miss the mark, resulting in financial losses for numerous teams and athletes. This unfortunate trend gave rise to the expression “the Drake jinx.”

Previously in the year, he placed a wager of approximately 700,000 dollars in Bitcoin on a UFC match, anticipating that Sean Strickland would emerge victorious against Dricus du Plessis (the potential gain was over 650,000 dollars in Bitcoin). Regrettably, the athlete fell short after the judges rendered a split decision.

In 2022, I placed a bet of $234,000 worth of Bitcoin on Charles Leclerc, Ferrari’s driver, to secure the first position in the Spanish Grand Prix. However, Max Verstappen unexpectedly claimed victory instead. Later that year, I invested $600K in cryptocurrency on FC Barcelona with the hope that they would triumph against their biggest rival, Real Madrid, in “El Clasico.” Sadly, the team from Madrid emerged as the champions in that match.
