As Game 6 between the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks approaches on Saturday night, the tension couldn’t be any higher between both teams on and off the court.
With the chance of making their first NBA Finals on the line, the Raptors look to clinch on home court, while the Bucks will try to force a Game 7 after blowing a 2-0 series lead.
But as the series has dragged on, the headlines have shifted towards the antics of Raptors global ambassador and super fan Drake.

From rubbing Nick Nurse’s shoulders and making fun of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s missed free throws in Game 4, to leading the crowd at Jurassic Park during Game 5, the 6 God has made his presence known in this series. Much to the frustrations of Milwaukee fans and Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer.
It’s reached the point that online sportsbooks like sportsbetting.ag and Bovada are getting in on the hype by offering multiple prop bets on Drake during Saturday’s game.
Here’s a sample:
Bettors can wager on whether or not he will give another massage to Nurse, if he will speak with Antetokounmpo during the broadcast, or even if he will get thrown out by security.
Is @Drake going to give Nick Nurse a massage during Game 6?

While it’s almost a guarantee that Drake will be animated and vocal during Game 6, given the high stakes, there is no telling what he will have up his sleeve for Raptors fans.
But if you’re feeling lucky there’s plenty of opportunities to ride his wave and potentially cash out on it.
