- Daily Wager set to be rebranded as ESPN BET Live

The Worldwide Leader in Sports is gearing up ahead of the launch of ESPN BET, as a new sports betting program is ready to debut this Friday.
ESPN’s new sports betting news and information program is largely a rebrand of Daily Wager, however, the timing is notable as their newly minted sportsbook goes live in just over a week.
Here’s what we know about the debut of ESPN BET Live so far.
ESPN BET Live Program Debuts Friday
Joe Fortenbaugh, On-Air Personality and Sports Betting Analyst for Daily Wager, took to X (Twitter) to announce the debut of the ESPN BET Live program.
It was really wild to be a part of the Daily Wager launch on March 11, 2019. An all-time career moment.
219 weeks & 4,630 Best Bets later, I'll get to be a part of the final episode of Daily Wager as well (ESPN2 at 4pm est).

ESPN BET Live will have its first episode debut Friday, Nov. 10 at 6pm EST on ESPN2. The premiere of this exciting program will be one of the first times we see a full broadcast featuring ESPN BET branding, as the new sportsbook gears up ahead of next week’s launch.
Daily Wager Rebranded Ahead of ESPN BET Launch
The ESPN Press Room had announced last week that Daily Wager would rebrand to ESPN BET Live, and now we have a launch date for the rebranded program.

Described as a show that highlights “discussion centered on analytics and point spreads as well as how the day’s sports news affects betting,” Daily Wager features host Doug Kezirian along with other personalities like Anita Marks and Erin Dolan.
While it’s currently unclear how ESPN BET Live will differ from Daily Wager, we expect it will still feature the same level of wagering analysis from some of the industry’s most trusted figures. As the name would suggest, you can expect a massive push behind the ESPN BET sportsbook on this program, and possibly some advertisements for whatever the ESPN BET promo code for new customers ends up being.
ESPN BET Sportsbook Launches November 14
ESPN BET is gearing up to launch across 17 states on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
Powered by PENN Entertainment, the ESPN BET go-live date has been highly anticipated ever since the gaming giant announced it would rebrand its previous US sportsbook platform. Any previous customers at PENN’s old sports betting app, Barstool Sportsbook, should see a seamless transition on Nov. 14.
Keep it locked in as we cover the latest news surrounding the upcoming launch of ESPN BET, which is now just over a week away.
