The Basketball legends hosting TV shows on Win Sportsbook

The venue has changed dramatically, but Billy Packer will provide another breakdown of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament this spring. Packer, 68, abruptly quit his television job at CBS last year after the competition ended, ending his 34-year career as a booth. Now, he will do what he has always been fascinated by when the 64 fields are revealed: “Ridic Las Vegas in March.” 카지노사이트 순위

Packer announced at a press conference last Monday that he will host “Survival and Advance,” a five-hour, one-hour television program that will be filmed live on Win Las Vegas Race and Sportsbook throughout the men’s tournament with coach legend and fellow basketball Hall of Fame member Bobby Knight. The show will begin on Sunday, March 15, Las Vegas time, and will air on Fox Sports Net (FSN) at 12 a.m. ET following games on March 22, March 29, April 3 and April 5. Win Las Vegas Executive Director Johnny Avelo will host the show with Packer and Knight, who will spend the days watching games and interacting with fans on Sportsbook.

“I always heard how exciting Vegas can be for a tournament,” Packer explained. “I remember offering to buy a Final Four ticket to a good friend of mine a few years ago. He went to the game and had a great time. But when he called me to thank me for the ticket, he said that attending the game was the second best place for the tournament. To him, No. 1 was still Las Vegas. It made me wonder, ‘What am I missing by not being there?’

The show will be filmed live, literally a step away from the counter where you can bet on tournament action, but Packer and Knight insisted on Monday that this would not be a gambling show. “It’s going to be a basketball show; the kind of basketball show that’s never been played before,” Packer said. “Between Bobby and I, the brainpower in this room for the NCAA Tournament is going to be more than anywhere else in the universe.”

Knight, a quirky coach who has done numerous interviews with the media throughout his storied career at Indiana and Texas Tech, said over the phone that he is looking forward to the show because he was interviewed by “a lot of people who have no idea what they’re talking about.” However, he added, “Certainly the show isn’t going to be like that.”

When asked if he had any fears about hosting a show inside a sportsbook, Knight said it didn’t matter. “People who want to gamble will have an opinion and listen to anyone,” said Knight, who retired from coaching last year with an unprecedented 902 wins and is now providing ESPN’s regular-season analyses. “It doesn’t matter where you put the show. It’s always going to be there. If you say X has an advantage over Y, someone will bet on it.”
