Did Pat McAfee Win? Bengals, Packers Picks Headline A Winning NFL Week 2

Posted on September 21, 2020 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

Football is in full swing, and former Colts punter Pat McAfee is getting in on the action.

The FanDuel personality makes betting picks for his viewers every week. His picks typically come through The Pat McAfee Show and College GameDay.

Last week was good one for McAfee, who ended up winning more bets than he lost.

However, his betting slate last week didn’t include NFL games. That wasn’t the case for Week 2, as McAfee hopped in on seven of the weekend’s games.

Between his college football and NFL picks, McAfee lined up his second-straight winning week of the season.

Pat’s explanation: 

“Don’t let Joe Burrow hang around, Joe Burrow’s going to make a play. If it wasn’t for, we’ve said this a couple times now, the worst cramp in the history of professional sports is what some doctors are calling it for Randy Bullock, they go to overtime and probably get a win. They’re probably 1-0 right now and we’re talking about how Joe Burrow has one of the most legendary first games in history, but instead it’s the complete opposite. Can’t go 0-2 tonight against the Brownies on Thursday Night Football.”

McAfee betting record

Overall, between college football and the NFL, McAfee is 8-5 on his betting picks.

Pat’s Picks continue to shine in the world of college football betting, but that might not last forever. He will try for another solid week as College GameDay heads to Florida next.

Since the former Colt is an NFL expert, his betting picks for Week 3 might end up being just as solid as last week’s selections.

With a ton of football left to play, he’ll have plenty of opportunities keep his winning record going. Check in with PlayIndiana every Monday to see McAfee’s updated stats.
