    ESPN Starting Their Own Sports Wagering Show

    A few months after sports betting began to break into the mainstream, ESPN is finally adding a gambling show to their daily television lineup. Titled Daily Wager, the hour-long show will debut on March 11 at 6 PM, airing on ESPNEWS.

    According to Sports Business Daily’s John Ourand, the show will be a “news and information show,” discussing the odds and money lines associated with gambling. Daily Wager will be different from other gambling shows, like FS1’s Lock It In and ESPN+’s I’ll Take That Bet, because while their sports wagering experts will be making picks on Daily Wager, ESPN reporters and analysts who will appear to provide information will not actually be making any picks.

    Doug Kezirian, who hosts ESPN’s Behind the Bets podcast, will host Daily Wager. A number of other ESPN personalities will also be featured, including College GameDay’s Chris “The Bear” Fallica, “Stanford” Steve Coughlin from Scott Van Pelt’s SportsCenter, ESPN gambling writer David Purdum, Joe Fortenbaugh, Preston Johnson, and Anita Marks.

    ESPN’s venture into gambling related content has been gradual. A pair of podcasts, Behind the Bets and Stanford Steve and The Bear, are produced by the company, while one of the most popular segments on Scott Van Pelt’s SportsCenter is Bad Beats. They also have the aforementioned I’ll Take That Bet show on ESPN+, which features talent from the Action Network. Daily Wager marks ESPN’s first major step into gambling-related programming, but given the sheer amount of non-live weekday programming on ESPNEWS, will it actually make an impact on the network’s coverage going forward?

    Reporters and analysts will not be making picks?

    what do they do in the last 15 minutes of gameday? “Dog of the day” “closer than the experts think” they even get points in the standings when their dog pick covers the spread

    They have no choice to try to make a viable show to try and keep up with the trends, the network is already struggling badly it appears

    The FS1 betting show is unwatchable. Espn will prob be slightly better but cannot trust TV networks to give out the real good inside stuff.

    You need to go in front of a mirror when the show starts if you want to see clowns.

    Disney owned entity will have "Cappin with Goofy". Mickey gets in over his head to the sharks and Minnie is forced to "pay" the shark Snow White who shows up with her 7 horny dwarfs to teach that fckin mouse a lesson.

    Unless the show is called “Crying Drunk Bitches” you will be waiting several lifetimes to be a guest.

    Not watching by choice is entirely different than your situation of not having enough cash to pay for cable or streaming services.

    I’m sure you will be as much of a clown in 5th gear as you are in every other gear.
