Drake is one of the biggest sports fans in all of hip-hop. The Canadian artist’s love for gambling is well known in sports circles. Recently, he dropped a $200K bet on his team to win the Western Conference.
There are some pretty amazing teams in the West this year, and many believe that it will be the team that comes out of the West that will ultimately take home the NBA championship. Recently, Drake placed a bet on Golden State to take the Western Conference.
BR Betting reports that Drake is so confident in this bet that he dropped $200K on it. The Warriors are 5-1 odds to win the West right now, which means Drake stands to win a whopping $1 million if the Warriors pull it off.
It is going to be very difficult for the Warriors to pull off this win as there are plenty of big teams in the West like the Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies. It should be noted, Drake loves Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, so it might be a reason why he chose to side with them.
Aside for his love for Golden State Warriors, he is especially a big fan of Toronto Raptors. He can be seen sitting courtside at majority of the Raptors’ games. Luckily for Drake, the Raptors will be back in the postseason this year as they are the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. Meanwhile, stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
