Super Bowl Streaker Chooses Clout Over $374,000 Gambling Winnings

From now to the end of eternity, any time a potential employer Googles Yuri Andrade, they will see him donning a pink leotard emblazoned with the adult website of an irredeemable woman beater sliding before the goal line before being hauled off in cuffs.

If you were in his position, what’s your integrity worth? $20,000? $100,000?

Rumors have been swindling about what Andrade gained from the stunt, outside of a night in jail and a $500 bond he posted the following morning.

The Boca Raton native claims to have placed a $50,000 bet that the Super Bowl would have a streaker, cashing in for $374,000 in winnings, but gambling heads on Twitter are confident that no off-shore sports book worth their weight in salt would accept a bet of this nature.

Andrade claims he sent someone to Vegas to make a prop bet there, a place where placing off field bets is not allowed.

He then told a Tampa Bay radio station that he recruited several friends to place wagers from different accounts on the gambling site Bovada at +750 odds, a head-scratching admission for someone who clearly values clout over cash.

A rep for Bovada recently informed TMZ that as a result of “some betting irregularities on our Super Bowl prop ‘Will a fan run onto the field during the game?’” the company “will refund all losing bets on the streaker wager — along with ‘all those ‘YES’ wagers we’ve determined to have had no part in the betting irregularities.’”

“Our players have always trusted us to ensure the integrity of all props offered in our sportsbook,” a Bovada spokesman told Front Office Sports. “We will continue to make sure that any publicity stunts or ill-intended behavior cannot adversely affect the outcome of a player’s wager.”

So Andrade won’t get any gambling cash. Maybe Vitaly Zdorovetskiy offered him a fluffer role in his next adult film production? Can’t put a price tag on that.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
