The NFL delivered another exciting slate of games on Sunday, with a rash of upsets and wild finishes. This gave bettors the opportunity to cash in, and former Indianapolis Colts punter and current FanDuel personality Pat McAfee was one of them.
McAfee laid down $100 on a six-team parlay that netted him more than $5,100. Taking advantage of upsets by the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals, Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans, even though he took the Texans and Dolphins plus the points, it's still an impressive string of picks, to say the least.
Following the Texans' win on "Sunday Night Football," McAfee announced on Twitter that he was in a giving mood this holiday season and that he would be "giving away a couple grand in the next couple days" to some of his many social media followers.
The former Indianapolis Colts punter, who recently signed an exclusive partnership with FanDuel Group, was very on brand with this gesture. His involvement with FanDuel includes creating digital content for the brand, guest spots on its various podcasts as well as daily fantasy and betting contests on FanDuel Sportsbook. He also makes regular appearances at FanDuel Sportsbook locations throughout the country.
With more than five grand to potentially give away, we'll have to wait and see exactly what McAfee's next move is.
