Pat McAfee just booked his first winning NFL betting week of the season.

Pat’s Picks went 9-8 during Week 3, which might start to turn things in the right direction. The former Indianapolis Colts punter releases his weekly picks on The Pat McAfee Show and Hammer Dahn.

Despite ending the week on top, McAfee’s overall record is sitting at 16-21, so there’s still some work left to be done.

PlayIndiana is tracking Pat’s Picks throughout the season, so check back in every week to see how his record is doing.

Pat McAfee NFL betting picks

This was the week that McAfee needed to set things straight. Three-consecutive outings in the red would have been a tough way to start the NFL season.

A solid showing in Week 4 could move him into positive territory now that he’s only a handful of games below water.

McAfee wagered on every Week 3 game, including a bet on the Indianapolis Colts.

Pat’s Explanation:

“I’ll pick the Colts but I’m not happy about it at all. I just want everybody to know that I’m not happy about it. The quarterback that’s going to be playing has two sprained ankles. It doesn’t seem like the Colts should cover this at all, especially down in Nashville. Great fanbase down there, I’m sure it’s going to be electrifying, but I’ve got the Colts just because I have to.”
