Tonight, NBA fans can expect to see a special two-hour pre-game edition of “NBA on TNT” before the start of the 2020-2021 season’s doubleheader opening night.
Barkley will offer up his NBA betting picks for the matchups throughout the show. The new partnership with TNT, FanDuel, and Barkley will also put the former athlete’s face in various advertisements and free-to-play contest promotions for the sportsbook.
He is also expected to make special appearances on podcasts, other TV programs affiliated with the TNT network, and be a part of the sports betting chatter in the content of social media for both FanDuel and TNT.
This partnership is expected to grow the overall markets for both TNT and FanDuel. However, the sportsbook’s mobile application is not offered in many states at the moment but that is expected to change as many more states will see it by 2021. Michigan is one of the markets that will see the FanDuel mobile application in the new year.
