The Super Bowl is over and now a week old but some National Football League fans are buzzing about what they saw.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs is decisive fashion with a 31-9 final score. Bucs quarterback Tom Brady, appearing in his tenth Super Bowls, claimed his seventh NFL championship title. Brady was also given the game’s Most Valuable Player award for his outstanding performance.
The Bucs defense also deserves a great deal of credit for the Super Bowl win. They held one of the best offenses in the league to just nine points and kept them out of the endzone all night. They also intercepted Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes twice, limiting big plays that Mahomes and the Chiefs are used to making.
Super Bowl watchers are also still talking about another instance that occurred on the field of play. With only minutes left in the game, Super Bowl players and attendees witnessed a streaker. Decked out in a revealing, hot pink onesie, 31-year-old Yuri Andrade bum rushed the field.
“The Super Bowl streaker has more yards than the Chiefs tonight,” the tweet states.
After appearing on the field and sprinting to the opposing endzone, the streaker was tackled by security. Andrade was arrested and charged with trespassing for his brief moment of glory. He was able to pay his $500 bond and was out of lock up the very next morning.
Super Bowl ‘Invader’ Won’t be Getting Paid For Stunt
After the incident, information emerged that Andrade was betting on himself — literally. He allegedly made a $50,000 “prop bet” that would have earned him a very large sum of cash. At +750, the prop bet would have netted the streaker $375,000.
He also allegedly told several friends to make the streaker bet. While it may have seemed like a good idea at the time, it doesn’t appear Andrade is going to cash in, according to Fox News.
The bets were made at an online sportsbook called Bovada. A spokesperson for the site tells Front Office Sports they will be voiding all wagers on the Super Bowl “invader” that it found had knowledge of Andrade’s plans prior to placing bets.
“Our players have always trusted us to ensure the integrity of all props offered in our sportsbook,” the spokesperson says. “We will continue to make sure that any publicity stunts or ill-intended behavior cannot adversely affect the outcome of a player’s wager.”
Bettors that did not have knowledge of Andrade’s intentions are still going to get paid. Refunds will also be given to those who bet against the Super Bowl having an invader.
