Drake loses $1 million on a World Cup bet he made on Argentina defeating France

Famous rapper Drake suffered a significant financial loss after placing a wager on Argentina to defeat France at the World Cup finals.

The Canadian superstar lost his $1 million wager on Argentina in the final FIFA game on Sunday after a 3-3 tie and a final score of 4-2. Although Argentina ultimately defeated France in a shootout, the “Rich Flex” artist had placed his bet in a market where extra time is disregarded and the result is decided based on the score after 90 minutes of play.

Drake revealed to users in a since-deleted Instagram post that he had bet on the Stakes and would have received $2.75 million if he had won. Social media users also saw a video of Drake expressing his support for Argentina, saying in one clip with a friend, “I’ll take Argentina, he’ll take France,” while sporting Napoli gear.

Always losing bets: Rapper Drake, who was born in Toronto, is probably used to losing wagers in the world of sports. Some people have even attributed game losses to what they call the Drake curse.

Drake’s Previous losses: He recently lost a lot of money after placing bets on other sporting events. For one, he lost a $2 million wager on a UFC fight earlier this year when middleweight champion Israel Adesanya was defeated by Alex Pereira at UFC 281, which took place on November 12 in New York.
