NBC Sports, an American sports broadcaster, has reinforced its team with a new lead betting analyst. The one joining the company is Jay Croucher, who will leverage his experience in the gambling sector to provide NBC Sports’ viewers with insightful analysis.

Croucher Joins NBC Sports

Croucher is a talented young ex-lawyer who joined the gambling industry as a trader for the Australian branch of the sports betting operator PointsBet. He was quickly promoted to a senior trader and later to junior legal counsel.

During his time with PointsBet, Croucher moved to the United States and has appeared as a contributor on various NBC Sports EDGE shows and podcasts. As a full-time member of NBC Sports, Croucher will talk about all aspects of sports betting and will provide viewers with hints on how to make the most out of their bets. The passionate analyst will join podcasts and will write various articles on sports and sports betting. The latter will be distributed across NBC Sports EDGE and NBC Sports’ social platforms. Lastly, Croucher will provide sports betting coverage to NBC Sports’ regional networks.

NBC Is Glad to Have Croucher On Board

Croucher spoke about his new position at NBC Sports. He lauded the company as an undisputed and innovative leader in US sports broadcasting and that joining its team was “an easy choice.”  

Sports betting is my language. I believe that it enhances our understanding of the sports we love and will continue to grow and add another compelling layer to sports broadcasts, and I can’t wait to be a part of that across NBC’s platforms.
