Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

The penultimate weekend of the Premier Lacrosse League is upon us. That’s right; time is flying by and the PLL’s fourth year in existence is already coming to a close. Semifinal festivities are taking place in Washington, D.C. on Sunday as teams battle for the right to play in the championship (Sunday, Sept. 18 in Philadelphia). The PLL’s huge multi-year broadcasting deal with ESPN means all games can be seen on the ESPN family of networks – including its cable channels and streaming service ESPN+.

Here is everything you need to know about semifinal Sunday in the Premier Lacrosse League.

What channel are the Premier Lacrosse League games on this PLL weekend? 

Each of this weekend’s two games be found on the premium streaming platform ESPN+. The opening semifinal showdown is also being televised by ABC. Here is the full lineup for this weekend’s PLL action.

Sunday, September 11

1:00 pm ET: Waterdogs vs Whipsnakes on ABC and ESPN+
3:30 pm ET: Chaos vs Archers on ESPN+

Can I bet on Premier Lacrosse League games? 

The simple answer is yes. Just about all of the country’s biggest sportsbooks now have some offering of betting lines for the Premier Lacrosse League. In fact, DraftKings Sportsbook has PLL game odds and player props, along with team and player futures. Game lines focus on the spread, money line and total (also known as the “Over/Under”), while player props involve picks for individual stats like points, goals and saves.

Other major sportsbooks like BetMGM, Caesars and Bet365 provide odds for a number of markets, so it is always smart to shop around to find the best available line for the side you would like to bet. And keep in mind that even if one sportsbook offers the best price for one bet that you have your eye on, it could possibly have the worst available line for a different wager.

What should I bet on during the 2022 Premier Lacrosse League season?

Since there are numerous betting options now available, it may be overwhelming to figure out which one to bet on. One way to get started is to place a money line wager on a team, which means simply picking it to win the game.

The favorite has a minus sign next to its money line price (-125, for example), indicating how much you would have to wager to win $100. So in this case a $125 bet would net a profit of $100, or (at the same proportion) a $12.50 wager would profit $10.

The underdog is generally noted with the plus-sign price, such as +130. That indicates how much a $100 bet would win/profit. So a $100 bet on a team to win at +130 would win you $130 if it is successful. You would get back your $100 stake, plus the $130 in winnings, so your initial $100 turns into $230 total.
