NBC Sports Philadelphia Dives Into Sports Betting Waters With Alternate Broadcast

NBC Sports Philadelphia will debut an alternate, betting-focused broadcast of the Philadelphia 76ers-Atlanta Hawks game this Wednesday, April 3, at 7:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia+. The new experience will highlight betting-related commentary and analysis in real time, along with up-to-date betting data and information.

The telecast will be led by NBC Sports Philadelphia and 97.5 The Fanatic host Marc Farzetta alongside sports-betting expert Brad Feinberg, an analyst on NBC Sports Philadelphia’s The Daily Line, and Anthony Gargano from 97.5 the Fanatic. The hosts will discuss a variety of betting lines and how gameplay impacts certain bets.

The hosts’ commentary and analysis will be complemented by special on-screen graphics featuring betting data and information, including a glossary of gambling terminology. The remainder of the visual presentation will be identical to the primary game telecast on NBC Sports Philadelphia.

“We are thrilled to be the first to provide this betting-focused programming and analysis, with a format that is relevant to everyone, from those just learning to advanced bettors,” says NBC Sports Philadelphia President Brian Monihan. “This simulcast continues our commitment to engage our fans in new and exciting ways.”

The alternate broadcast is NBC Sports Philadelphia’s latest venture in providing relevant and timely sports betting content for Philly sports fans. The Daily Line aired during the NFL season, and betting odds are included on NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com and within podcasts.

In addition, NBC Sports Group offers a variety of sports betting related content and programming:

  • NBC Sports Regional Networks in January launched an alternate predictive-gaming telecast for its NBC Sports Washington coverage of the Washington Wizards. Predict The Game will be produced for the eighth and final time of the season on April 5.
  • NBC Sports offers free-to-play prediction games on the NBC Sports Predictor games platform, in partnership with Boom Fantasy. Eligible fans have the chance to win thousands of dollars in weekly cash prizes across a variety of contests, including Premier League soccer and golf.
  • NBC Sports Radio produces The Daily Line, a weekday afternoon drive show from 3-7 p.m. ET, in partnership with Westwood One Radio.
