Leaf will host ‘The Straight Line with Ryan Leaf’, which will be broadcast four times a week, with NFL editions on Monday, Thursday, and Friday and a College Football edition on Wednesday.

The show will premiere on 8 September, in line with the beginning of the new NFL season. It will feature NFL and College Football storylines with wagering analysis targeting spreads, totals, player props, and futures.

Leaf joined ESPN in 2019 as a college football analyst and is a regular contributor on SportsCenter and College Football Live.

Leaf commented: “I’m thrilled to join the PointsBet team as we work together to produce premium football content during this upcoming football season. With PointsBet’s market-leading emphasis on live betting options and their best-in-class user experience, it was an easy decision. I’m eager to use my knowledge of the game in a new and exciting way that connects me to sports fans and bettors on a regular basis.”

PointsBet also announced that it will launch a multimedia studio in early October, which will serve as the central hub for the group’s content production. Located in downtown Manhattan, the PointsBet Studio will host multiple shows per week with the capabilities to live-stream, record video podcasts, and create social-first content.

“PointsBet views content as an essential component of the overall sports betting experience," said PointsBet USA CEO Johnny Aitken. “Bettors are increasingly looking to sportsbooks to provide them with high-quality entertaining and informative content, and with the unveiling of the PointsBet Studio, we’re able to produce and curate content in-house that is tailored to the PointsBet user. 

“And we couldn’t be more excited to be kicking off the NFL season with content produced alongside our newest brand ambassador, Ryan Leaf.”
