Word got around after the Super Bowl that streaker Yuri Andrade placed a $50,000 bet that there would be a streaker at the event before he ran onto field himself. At +750, he would walk away with $374,000 profit, so most on social media claimed this was a phony story.
However, the streaker himself posted to his Instagram page confirming that it’s true. The dude in a pink onesie is an American hero, and we’re here for all of it.
Now that Andrade has beaten sports books at their own game, we can kiss any future prop bet like this goodbye. We’re actually kind of surprised it took this long for a fan to go full Pete Rose and bet on himself.
Most similar fan incidents are done for popularity, but Yuri Andrade was a man with a plan.
Let’s look at the takeaway here:
He was elbowed in the neck at the goal line by a middle-aged man, spent a night or two in jail, and will probably be banned from NFL venues for life. Totally worth it if you’re locking $374K in the bag. I mean, how many of us would give up live football attendance for that price?
Probably all of us. Good for Andrade for making a complete fool of himself and then cashing in behind our backs.
