Report: XFL To Feature And Discuss Betting Lines During Broadcasts

In an exclusive report from Front Office Sports‘ Michael McCarthy talked about some big innovations to the broadcast format in correlation to betting lines on screen.

According to the report, the XFL’s games that are broadcasted on ABC and ESPN will have an on-screen scoreboard that showcases the game’s point-spread and over/under total in addition to traditional information like the quarter, down and distance and play clock.

In addition, unlike college and NFL football, the broadcasters will be allowed to discuss aspects of gambling metrics while live on air. This could prove to be another innovative move in the list of rules the XFL is introducing during the 2020 season.

“The over/under and point spread will be incorporated in our on-screen dashboard for XFL games. When it’s appropriate, our announcers will also have conversations around the spread and over-under.”

Sports gambling is a massive industry. In New Jersey alone, a total of $4.55 billion was wagered at sportsbooks in 2019. That total number is creeping towards those of Nevada, but are still far from the 11-month total of $4.74 billion in 2019.

Lines for the XFL can be found at all major sportsbook including online at Draft Kings and Fan Duel.
