The PGA Tour and its domestic broadcast partner NBC are launching a new second screen betting show which will be broadcast on the Peacock streaming service during the United States golf tour events.

The NBC Sports Edge BetCast, only available at Peacock’s Premium tier, is supported by PointsBet and will be shown for the first time alongside NBC broadcasts of the Waste Management Phoenix Open from February 4th to 7th on the TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course.

Activation comes after PointsBet, an official PGA Tour betting company, signed a $ 500 million deal with NBC Sports last year.

In the show in Watchalong format, analysts discuss potential bets with PointsBet odds in two and a half hours of each of the four tournament rounds. The BetCast will primarily follow an exclusive group each day.

According to NBC, BetCast offers viewers data-rich accompanying graphics, odds for prop bets and the integration of tournament leaderboards and odds.

A BetCast host and two analysts will be present at NBC’s Golf Channel Live studio. A PointsBet quota maker will also be represented at your trading desk in the reporting.

“The NBC Sports Edge BetCast stream on Peacock Premium is another step forward in our sports betting strategy,” said Norb Gambuzza, PGA Tour senior vice president of media and games.

“As we continue to be interested in sports betting, the tour will continue to innovate and find new ways to attract fans around the world.”
