PointsBet has unveiled a partnership with NBC Sports Chicago to launch a three-game series of alternate sports betting presentations covering the Chicago Bulls, titled BetCast.
Beginning by covering the Bulls matchup at the Washington Wizards on March 29 in a dual-market presentation, BetCast offers on-screen live odds data powered by PointsBet, including Spread, Over/Under and moving Money Lines, along with futures odds and player props.
Real-time data will appear on a graphic overlay on the game coverage, which will also include alternating voices who will provide sports betting commentary and analysis.
The second of the dual-market presentation, entitled The Bulls at Wizards BetCast, will feature NBC Sports Chicago’s host David Kaplan and Bulls analyst Kendall Gill, along with NBC Sports Washington’s Wizards analyst Tony Massenburg and Jay Croucher, Head Oddsmaker at PointsBet, offering viewers with expert insight and analysis alongside the latest odds.
For the rest of the BetCast presentations, Kaplan and Croucher will return, with Gill and Will Perdue rotating appearances.
Marking the launch of BetCast, the NBC Sports Predictor app, powered by PointsBet, will present special ‘Pick n’ Roll’ contests with $50,000 jackpots, whilst a special edition of the ‘Bet the EDGE GameTime’ podcast with Sara Perlman and Drew Dinsick will provide an hour of pregame coverage before the official programming begins.
Earlier this month, NBC Sports Chicago and NBC Sports Philadelphia partnered with PointsBet on the first dual-market sports-betting presentation, when it aired similar presentations for the game between the Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers.
