NBC Sports Philadelphia is bringing back its sports betting-focused alternative broadcasts for Sixers games this year, the network announced Wednesday, for a 10-game slate beginning Nov. 20.

The broadcasts, which will be called "NBC Sports BetCast" and will be available live on NBC Sports Philadelphia+, will be hosted once again by Marc Farzetta, alongside 97.5 the Fanatic's Anthony Gargano and sports betting expert Brad Feinberg.

The network debuted the alternative broadcast concept this past April.

According to a mockup from NBCSP, the broadcast interface will resemble the boxed-in look of ESPN's radio shows throughout the day: fans will be able to watch the Sixers in a slightly smaller rectangle, with the live spread, money line, and over/under figures alongside the action. There will be other prop bets, along with scores and money lines from other games around the league:

"These broadcasts are a fun way for fans to be more engaged with our games," Shawn Oleksiak, NBC Sports Philadelphia Vice President of Live Events, said in a release. "From the casual sports bettor, to those just learning the basics, these game broadcasts will entertain as well as inform those interested in sports betting."

Here's the full list of BetCast broadcasts:

November 20 at 7 pm vs. New York Knicks
December 2 at 7 pm vs. Utah Jazz
