ESPN's Daily Bet Shows "Bye Bye Vegas."

ESPN's Daily Wager betting show leaves Las Vegas and begins airing Thursday, September 7, from the network's headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut.

The sports broadcaster announced the news today. "The Daily Bets" airs on ESPN2 and has aired for three years from a 6,000-square-foot studio at the LINQ Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.

ESPN created some great content and incredible memories while in the Las Vegas studio," Scott Clark, vice president of fantasy and sports betting content, said in a statement. “With our new ESPN BET deal set to launch this fall, we thought it best to return to our home base. We can't thank everyone we've worked with at Caesars Entertainment enough over the past few years and wish them all the best in the future. "

Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ: CZR) is the operator of LINQ. ESPN is a subsidiary of Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS ).

Speaking of Caesar

ESPN's 10-year, $1.5 billion deal with Penn Entertainment (NASDAQ: PENN ) ended earlier this month, and LINQ's status as the home of the "Daily Wager" appears to be the first to become apparent victim.

The deal allows casino operators in the region to use the ESPN Bet brand for mobile and retail sports betting. The agreement was announced nearly three years ago when ESPN announced groundbreaking deals with Caesars (NASDAQ: CZR ) and DraftKings (NASDAQ: DKNG ).

After news of ESPN's relationship with the University of Pennsylvania broke, speculation was rife that the sports network would cut ties with the other two gaming companies. The announcement that the Daily Wager is moving to Connecticut may be the first sign.

This likely won't be an issue for Caesars, as there are rumors the team is looking to back out of the ESPN deal to save money. The operator currently has 6,000 square meters of space at LINQ, which it can use to generate additional profits.

Changes for daily use continue

News of the move to Connecticut is the latest in a series of changes at the Daily Wager. Doug Kezirian - the former Las Vegas sportscaster and original host of the ESPN show - was recently fired by the network, even though ESPN touted the show's high ratings .

Another change is the addition of a Saturday edition of sports betting programming designed to prepare viewers for college and NFL betting. This episode airs on ESPN2 at 11 a.m. ET.

The Daily Bets also airs Sundays at 9am ET, Mondays at 4pm ET, Thursdays and Fridays at 6pm ET. The show will not air on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
