Pat McAfee Seems To Have Lost His Betting Magic

Posted on November 30, 2020

Pat McAfee is in the midst of his worst losing streak of the season when it comes to his betting picks.

Pat’s Picks went 2-6 last week, making NFL Week 12 his fourth-straight week in the hole.

Things are slipping after his fantastic football betting start. McAfee’s combined NFL and college football record is practically even now at 42-41.

Pat McAfee betting picks go 2-6 in NFL Week 12

McAfee’s NFL betting record is almost in negative territory for the first time this season.

Pat’s NFL picks are now 28-28 after a bumpy Week 12.

A slate of college football picks could have helped even things out, but McAfee didn’t release any for the second-straight week. He released his NFL picks on the Pat McAfee Show.

He typically releases three picks a week on College GameDay, but McAfee took last Saturday off for the holiday weekend. Looks like he should have worked after all…

Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans

Pat’s Pick: Titans +3

Final Score: Titans 45, Colts 26

Did Pat Win? Yes

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Pat’s Pick: Chiefs -3.5

Final Score: Chiefs 27, Buccaneers 24

Pat McAfee FanDuel Super Boost

McAfee has a standing FanDuel “Super Boost” with the sportsbook each week.

That odds boost is typically a three-team NFL teaser.

However, McAfee decided to mix things up this time around with a Cowboys parlay.

The Super Boost moved the odds for the bet from +481 up to +560.

Pat’s Pick: Tony Pollard anytime touchdown scorer, Cowboys -145

Final Score: Football Team 41, Cowboys 16

Did Pat Win? No, both legs miss

Can NFL Week 13 save Pat McAfee’s betting record?

It’s now or never for McAfee to save his football betting record.

Most of his bets are on the NFL, and we’re approaching the home stretch of the season now.

McAfee will finish the year deep in losing territory if things continue at the current rate.

His record could dip below .500 for the first time if this week isn’t a winning week.

Here’s how his betting records stand after Thanksgiving weekend:

  • NFL: 28-28
  • College Football: 14-13
  • Combined: 42-41

PlayIndiana is tracking Pat’s Picks all season long, so check back in next week to see if McAfee manages to turn things around.
