What to Know About Jackson
With the legalization of sports betting in Tennessee, Action 247 aims to provide the best betting options for Tennesseans. To help inform those in the Volunteer State of the betting options that are available locally, we have put together a series highlighting Tennessee betting options.
Jackson Sports Betting – General-ly Speaking
The hottest sports ticket in town is unquestionably the Jackson Generals baseball team. The Generals are the Double-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks, after previously being affiliated with the Chicago Cubs from 1998-2006, and the Seattle Mariners from 2007-2016.
The Generals have won four league championships, three of which have come since 2016. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Minor League Baseball season was canceled at all levels, so Jackson did not get the opportunity to defend its back-to-back titles.
With the future of minor league baseball still somewhat up in the air, it is highly anticipated that minor league baseball will resume regularly scheduled play for the 2021 season.
Notable alumni include Sammy Sosa, Nomar Garciaparra, Hee-Seop Choi, Tyler O’Neill, Ricky Nolasco, Luis Valbuena, Rich Hill, Carlos Zambrano and Mark Prior.
You can watch every Generals game with a subscription to MiLB.tv, or listen to games on the radio on 94.1 FM or 1390 AM.
Jackson Sports Betting – Pros You Should Know
The Tennessee Titans, Nashville Predators, and Memphis Grizzlies have the most betting opportunities, given their participation in the “Big Four” sports leagues. Their longer seasons and more prominent national exposure mean more betting options are provided for the NFL, NHL, and NBA.
The Tennessee Titans compete in Nashville and are one of the dominant AFC teams. Head coach Mike Vrabel has turned the Titans from an annual 7-9 team into a powerhouse, building around defense and a solid running game.
Derrick Henry has burst onto the scene under Vrabel as one of the most physically imposing running backs in the NFL even leading the league in rushing yards for the 2019 season.
Staying in Nashville, the Predators play just across the river from the Titans at Bridgestone Arena. The Predators are another team built around their defense, with the Norris Trophy winner himself, Roman Josi, and fellow stud defenseman Ryan Ellis pairing for a shutdown tandem.
The 2018 Vezina Trophy winning Goaltender Pekka Rinne is a future Hall of Famer, and forwards Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson should keep the Preds’ streak of playoff appearances (currently at six consecutive) alive and well.
The Memphis Grizzlies haven’t had recent playoff success like the Titans or Predators, but they’re off to a strong start in rebuilding the franchise. Memphis has a star in the making on its hands with 2019-20 NBA Rookie of the Year Ja Morant in the fold.
