The MSG Networks (Madison Square Garden), which air games for the New York Knicks (NBA) and New York Rangers (NHL), are launching a simulcast sports betting feed this fall. MSG Networks’ first broadcast of “BetCast” presented by DraftKings will air Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 7:30 p.m. eastern when the Knicks take on the Atlanta Hawks.

About the MSG Networks BetCast product
As part of the broadcast, MSG Networks will integrate DraftKings odds into BetCasts in addition to highlighting specific bets and parlays that will be available to viewers. Customers can access these bets on the NY DraftKings Sportsbook app.
This season, the New York sports betting broadcast will air alongside traditional telecasts on MSG for select basketball and hockey games.
In all, the network will broadcast 12 BetCasts between both sports. The network debuted BetCast during the 2021-2022 NBA season when it showcased five Knicks games. This year will mark the first time the company produces an NHL sports betting simulcast of Rangers games in New York.
