How to watch the Premier Lacrosse League this weekend: Week 9 of the 2022 PLL season
Following a midseason break, the Premier Lacrosse League season is heating up. The PLL returns for Week 9 of its fourth season this weekend in Denver, Colorado. The league signed a massive, multi-year broadcast deal with ESPN, meaning all games will now be across the ESPN family of networks — including its cable channels and streaming service ESPN+.
Let’s get into this weekend’s action.
What channel are the Premier Lacrosse League games on this PLL weekend?

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 or 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 (ex: -125), indicating how much you’d have to wager to win $100. So in this case a $125 bet would win $100, or (at the same proportion) a $12.50 wager would profit $10.
The underdog is 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.
