Pat Mcafee Turns Betting Picks Around In NFL Week 5

Posted on October 13, 2021 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

Pat McAfee had the betting rebound that he needed during NFL Week 5.

McAfee’s betting picks went 11-6 over the weekend, moving his overall record for the season to 33-38.

McAfee releases his NFL betting picks every week on The Pat McAfee Show. His record is still in the red for now, but McAfee at least managed to stop the bleeding after a rough outing last week.

PlayIndiana is tracking Pat’s Picks all season long, so check in next week to see if he can right the ship.

McAfee is only one more good week away from pulling his betting record into positive territory. Five games under isn’t a terrible spot to be in, especially considering how much football is left this season.

As a former Indianapolis Colts player, McAfee tends to bet on the Colts during their games, even if he isn’t super confident in the team’s chances that week.

That was the case during Monday Night Football for NFL Week 5.

Thursday Night Football Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks

Since McAfee is a FanDuel personality, he gets to create a weekly same game parlay (SGP) for his fans to use at the sportsbook.
