PointsBets lands partnership with NBC Sports Chicago and Philadelphia
March 7, 2022
PointsBet has signed a partnership with NBC Sports Chicago and NBC Sports Philadelphia to present BetCast, an alternate live game sports-betting experience, covering the Chicago Bulls at Philadelphia 76ers NBA matchup on March 7. This marks NBC Sports Regional Networks' first dual-market sports betting telecast and will be presented on NBC Sports Chicago Plus and NBC Sports Philadelphia Plus.
The BetCast will deliver on-screen live odds data powered by PointsBet – including Spread, Over/Under and moving Money Lines – along with futures odds and player props. The real-time data will appear on an enhanced graphic overlay surrounding the regular live-game coverage. It will also include alternate announcers to provide commentary with a sports betting focus. And as part of the Betcast, the NBC Sports Predictor app, powered by PointsBet, will deliver a special 'Pick n' Roll' contest for the game with a guaranteed $50,000 jackpot. In addition, 'Bet the EDGE GameTime,' a special edition of the podcast, will lead into the game on NBC Sports Philadelphia Plus and NBC Sports Chicago Plus.
The traditional live-game coverage of the matchup will be presented on NBC Sports Chicago and NBC Sports Philadelphia, respectively. BetCast viewers can select PointsBet's 'Live Same Game Parlay' options to place bets while tracking odds, player performance, and team stats in-real time.
