Drake has gone big on fellow social media star Jake Paul to beat Tommy Fury in Sunday’s long-awaited fight between the pair. 

The Canadian rapper put a $400,000 wager on Paul to not only beat Fury, but to do so via knockout. 

If it is to come to fruition, Drake will earn himself a cool $1million profit. 

Tyson Fury has also placed a sizable wager on his brother to instead do the business vs. Paul. 

‘I’ve got 100 racks on it for an inside-the-distance stoppage, so if he loses, then I’ll lose 100 bags as well. I’ve got him at 3/1,’ The Gypsy King told iFL TV.

‘I know Tommy is going to knock him out. What is a little bit stupid is I see all these experts and professional boxers picking Jake Paul over Tommy.

Betting big on sports events is hardly a new thing for Drake.

The 36-year-old won just one of his seven Super Bowl bets as the Kansas City Chiefs clinched their second Lombardi in four seasons, and yet still made a profit.

He wagered a total of $965k on the bets, and won $1.477m, making an overall profit of $512k.

Last month, the ‘Laugh Now Cry Later’ artist netted a $2m payout by placing a $1m winning bet on the Chiefs to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship. However, there have also been some big losses. 

In December, Drake bet $1m on Argentina to beat France in regulation in the World Cup final. 

Unfortunately for him, Lionel Messi & Co. beat the French in a dramatic shootout.

Additionally, in November, he threw down $2m worth of Canadian dollars for Israel Adesanya to win UFC 281 over Alex Pereira, who won in the fifth round by knockout.
