I call ‘shenanigans’, but who knows.
The “Super Bowl streaker” is claiming that he bet $50,000 on the prop bet that there would be a streaker at the game and won about $374,000.

The odds were 15-to-2 that it would happen. HOWEVER, a lot of Vegas odds experts, including former K-Stater @KellyinVegas, who you can here pop up on KMAN’s The Game from time to time, are saying there’s no way this could happen.
1/ A lot of hullaballoo today about the #SuperBowl streaker purportedly making a $50K bet at +750 that there would be a streaker during the game.
Per a global-market sportsbook spokesperson:
"No book in their right mind would take $50K limits on that. Nowhere close."

Look at the anthem prop. Can bet couple hundo here and there. Gets bet up huge on Friday after the rehearsal. Books take it down. You actually think if there were 500 guys all betting $100 the streaker prop at the same time the book wouldn’t take it down. LOL

What we do know about Yuri Andrade, 31, the man underneath the hot pink onsie, is that he went to a Tampa strip club after he posted bail and, still in the streaking outfit, was promptly kicked out after rushing the main stage there, as well.
Seems like a classy guy.
