For those of you golf fans who appreciate gambling on player lineups as much Green-In-Regulation stats, you’re in luck.
For the first time ever, NBC Sports will team up the PGA and PointsBet USA to bring betting coverage to the public during a live PGA Event.
A live second-screen experience entitled NBC Sports Edge BetCast will be available on Peacock Premium for the Waste Management Open from Thursday, February 4th-7th.
“The PointsBet team is thrilled to work alongside our partners in NBC Sports and the PGA TOUR to bring to life a very engaging and unique sports betting production,” said Johnny Aitken, PointsBet USA CEO.
The Waste Management Phoenix Open will be the proverbial guinea pig for the new betting show. The W.M Open (Pre-COVID) was a giant outdoor party. Sprinkling in some gambling into this environment can create the conditions to really take off.
“We are excited to debut this unique betting show with our partners at the PGA TOUR and PointsBet,” said David Preschlack, President, NBC Sports Regional Networks, and Executive Vice President, Content Strategy, NBC Sports Group.
Traditional coverage for the tournament will take place on the GOLF Channel and NBC from at TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course.
