ESPN - Bet

  • ESPN will be debuting a new sports betting show and Youtube channel on Monday which will help reach a larger audience.
  • The new program “Bet” will air on Monday before Monday Night Football and will be recorded at the new ESPN studio in the LINQ Hotel.

LAS VEGAS – ESPN has announced that along with the return of the sports wagering program Daily Wager, it will be adding more sports betting content with the debut of a new show called “Bet” and a new betting YouTube channel on Monday.

The half-hour program, Bet, will now stream three nights a week for live and on demand viewing on the ESPN App and ESPN’s social media feeds on Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.

The show will be recorded in the newly opened studio at the LINQ Hotel and Experience in Las Vegas and will be co-hosted by Joe Fortenbaugh and Tyler Fulghum.

“Bet will allow us to connect with fans and drive the conversation in a way that leverages what we do best on social and digital platforms,” said Mike Foss, Senior Director, Digital & Social Video, Social Content, ESPN. “We have seen tremendous success and growth in our slate of digital shows in 2020. Bet will showcase an amazing new studio in The LINQ and we are tremendously excited about delivering a new live and interactive show core to our audience expansion priority.”

The first showing of the program will air right before the doubleheader Monday Night Football event on ESPN. The time will be at 5:30 p.m. ET instead of its regularly scheduled 6:30 p.m. airing due to having two games slated for the day instead of one.

Times are subject to change for other events but the program is also set to stream on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The ESPN Sports Betting YouTube Channel is dedicated to producing legal sports betting content and will feature clips from Daily Wager, SportsCenter, and more.

The new program will be joining a list of sports betting-related content that ESPN has released including Behind the Bets with Doug Kezirian podcast from Las Vegas, “Bad Beats” on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt, and Bettor Days with Mike Greenberg on ESPN+.

These additions to the already loaded sport betting programming that has been released for over a decade will help the network reach an even bigger range of audiences.
