Just in time for Super Bowl LVI, Gray Television is launching a new weekly syndicated sports betting show.
Beat the Odds will debut with a pilot episode Friday, Feb. 11 across select owned and operated stations throughout the country, reaching nearly one quarter of U.S. television households.
Production company Tupelo Honey plans to begin production of the 30-minute weekly series for syndication in the third quarter of 2022. Putting two and two together, one could expect to see the show roll out around the start of the new football season in August or September.
The show will be produced at KVVU-TV Fox5 in Las Vegas and hosted by the station’s veteran news anchor, Dave Hall. Joining Hall in studio will be handicappers Jack Ross and Ted Sevransky, along with NFL analyst and former player Brandon Marshall.
Additionally, the Beat the Odds pilot will feature Greta Van Susteren (who hosts Gray Television’s syndicated Full Court Press) interviewing Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre.
“Beat the Odds is a different type of sports betting show,” said Cary Glotzer, Tupelo Honey CEO. “It will give sports bettors top-notch analysis and information, but it’ll also be very entertaining, with features on sports history and how sports influence culture. It’s why we developed the show – to create a format that really engages sports and betting fans.”
