NBC Sports Philadelphia & PointsBet partner on new series of 76ers sports-betting experiences
NBC Sports Philadelphia, NBC Sports Philadelphia Plus and PointsBet are partnering to present a series of sports-betting presentations – titled BetCast – covering the Philadelphia 76ers this season, and expanding upon the collaboration that tipped off with dual-market coverage of the 76ers vs. Chicago Bulls on March 7.
The 76ers BetCast schedule includes four games on NBC Sports Philadelphia Plus, beginning this Friday, Dec. 2, when the 76ers face the Grizzlies in Memphis at 8 p.m. ET. Other 76ers BetCast games are expected to include Dec. 21 vs. Detroit, Jan. 30 vs. Orlando and March 6 at Indiana.
Last month, PointsBet and NBC Sports Chicago announced a four-game Bulls BetCast series.
NBC Sports Philadelphia host Michael Barkann and 76ers analyst Jim Lynam, along with Jay Croucher, lead betting analyst for NBC Sports, who previously served as head oddsmaker for PointsBet.
