Well, it sounds like his grand plan has failed because he couldn’t stay quiet. According to Front Office Sports, Bovada has canceled prop bets where it has been “identified” that the bettor had “knowledge” of Andrade’s plans.
“Our players have always trusted us to ensure the integrity of all props offered in our sportsbook. We will continue to make sure that any publicity stunts or ill-intended behavior cannot adversely affect the outcome of a player’s wager,” Bovada told FOS.
The Super Bowl streaker who claims he won $375,000 off of the “Will a fan run on the field during the game?” prop bet could have little to nothing to show for his effort.https://t.co/NvQenUVV1m

All Andrade had to do was keep his mouth shut and he could have cashed in. Instead, he just had to do some media and brag about getting paid.
Now, Bovada is hitting back and canceling bets. Seeing as how it’s an offshore book, there’s literally nothing he can do.
He has no recourse of any kind, and this all could have been avoided if he had just shut the hell up afterwards.
Imagine losing hundreds of thousands of dollars after streaking at the Super Bowl because you couldn’t stop talking? Karma comes in many forms and losing $300,000 is a hell of a blunt way to learn a lesson. Be smarter, folks. Be much smarter.
