programs not just for sports bettors but for casual sports fans, avid sports fans and fantasy players.”
Each week The Sweat, will deliver analysis by DraftKings experts – bringing fans inside the game. Place Your Bets Presented by DraftKings Sportsbook, will not only cover the local New York teams, but also the key matchups from around the league. Place Your Bets will be hosted by SNY’s Maria Marino.
“The legalization of sports betting transformed our business model not only as a sportsbook operator, but also as a digital media hub,” said Ezra Kucharz, chief business officer at DraftKings. “We are entering the most prime period of the sports calendar for our company, and the move to syndicate our original programming via a widely-viewed and premier partner in SNY was a clear strategic decision.”
The two shows will air every Sunday throughout the regular season and the playoffs.
