We have the next potential victim of the noted “Drake Curse,” as the rapper’s placed multiple bets on tonight’s men’s basketball national championship.
UCONN will take on San Diego State for a chance at a title. Unfortunately, one team’s fate might already be sealed. Fans have been quick to comment on Drake’s big March Madness bets as the final game approaches.
The rapper has a few different wagers on Connecticut to win BIG. Not only did he take them to cover the 7.5-point spread, but he moved the line to better his odds in what he believes will be a blowout.
Drake placed $250,000 on the Huskies to win by a margin of 6-10 points. He also threw down another $100,000 on UCONN to win by 11 or more.

It’s not the first bet the musician’s placed in this Big Dance. The “Drake Curse” already hit Miami and Florida Atlantic in his most recent Final Four parlay. Neither of those Sunshine State underdogs would move on to the final round as losses would effectively end their seasons.
This time, though, Drake is siding with the favorite, and he’s not alone.
It’s being reported that more than 80% of the money has been placed on UCONN at certain sportsbooks. Should the Drake Curse hit, it would be absolutely devastating to those backing the Huskies.
Fans and followers on social media were quick to respond to seeing Drake’s latest bet. Here’s what they had to say.

Might as well not even watch the game tonight. We already know what’s going to happen.
Congratulations to the Aztecs

UCONN is hoping the Drake Curse won’t have an effect on tonight’s matchup. Given the rapper’s track record, though, hope might already be lost.
