The show gets on average 330,000 viewers and had its most watched month in November.

PrizePicks CEO Adam Wexler commented on the newly announced deal Thursday afternoon.

"PrizePicks & our player projections spark the conversation for millions of sports fans on a daily basis. Doesn't get much more fitting than a partnership like this one to take it from there."

Aspects of the partnership include dedicated PrizePicks segments on the podcast, exclusive social media content, guest interviews with PrizePicks influencers, event appearances, and more.

The Stephen A. Smith Show is broadcast on ESPN Radio.  The outspoken commentator also appears on ESPN's First Take.

Smith's PrizePicks partnership doesn't appear as if it will conflict with ESPN's own branded online sportsbook, ESPN Bet, which is operated by Penn Entertainment.

The newly announced deal will focus on PrizePicks Daily Fantasy Sports platform, though many believe some of the features closely mimic that of sports gambling.

“PrizePicks and The Stephen A. Smith Show are both focused on evolving how fans engage with sports and I can’t think of a better opportunity for us to extend our reach,” Wexler added.

On The Stephen A. Smith show, Smith gives his renowned point of view, breaking barriers beyond the world of sports, and tackling pertinent issues across entertainment, pop culture, society, business, and politics. Three times a week, audiences all over the world hear his live unfiltered opinions on the day’s biggest headlines as well as interviews with top celebrities and thought leaders.

Stephen A. Smith said, “The Stephen A. Smith Show is ecstatic to be working with PrizePicks. We love making picks. If you want to flex your sports knowledge, PrizePicks is the place to do it. So, let’s Go!”

PrizePicks is the fastest-growing sports company in North America according to the 2023 Inc. 5000 rankings. As the company continues to expand to new markets, responsible gaming education remains a key focus. For more information visit www.prizepicks.com/responsible-gaming.
