Pat McAfee’s college football picks

If you took McAfee’s picks last week, you won yourself some money.

Since McAfee is a FanDuel partner, the sportsbook supplies all of the lines for his picks.

Clemson Tigers vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Pat’s Pick: Clemson -33.5

Pat’s explanation:

“Today look for Clemson -33.5 down there in Winston-Salem, strictly because Trevor Lawrence told Tom Rinaldi he walked off that field last year in Louisiana and said I thought I could do more. He’s been sitting on that for the entire off season, he is going to dominate.”

Final score: Clemson 37, Wake Forest 13

Did Pat win? No

Army Black Knights vs. Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks

Pat’s Pick: Army -21.5

Final Score: Army 37, LA-Monroe 7

Did Pat win? Yes

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Florida State Seminoles

Pats Pick: Georgia Tech +12.5

Final Score: Georgia Tech 16, Florida State 13

Did Pat Win? Yes

Pat McAfee promos at FanDuel

McAfee signed an exclusive deal with FanDuel back in July.

Since then, the sportsbook’s branding has been a big part of his show.

As part of their deal, McAfee gets to create some unique betting promotions that are only available to Indiana gamblers.

His FanDuel promo is focused on the NFL this week.

Right now, one of the “Pat’s Punts” odds boosts is on the board.

That promo boosts the odds of the Chiefs to cover their -8.5 spread against the Chargers this Sunday. Originally the payout was at -110, but with the boost, it’s now up to +150.

McAfee Week 2 NFL picks

PlayIndiana will be keeping track of Pat’s Picks throughout the entire season.

Starting next week, you can catch the full recap of McAfee’s picks every Monday.

Since his Thursday Night Football bet hit its mark, McAfee is already 1-0 on his NFL Week 2 picks.

He might stick to mostly college football, or a full slate of new NFL picks could be coming.

Regardless, we’ll have the outcomes and his updated record ready to go next week. Check back in next week to see if McAfee bettors had a weekend to remember.
