What to Know About The Tri-Cities
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.
Tri-Cities Sports Betting – Bet on the Bucs
The East Tennessee State Buccaneers offer eight varsity sports each for men’s and women’s athletics: baseball, softball, basketball, track and field, cross country, golf, soccer, tennis, football, and volleyball. The men’s basketball team has made 10 NCAA Tournament appearances, while the Bucs women’s team has made three, consecutively in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
You may also consider the men’s golf team, which has won a whopping 24 conference championships. Alternatively, the football team has a 4-2 bowl game record and has a fierce rivalry with in-state foe, the Chattanooga Mocs.
Tri-City Sports Betting – Race On Over to Bristol
The Bristol Motor Speedway is one of the most popular and esteemed racetracks on the NASCAR circuit. Fast, loud, and set up perfectly for spectators, the course features a particularly steep slope, which provides all the thrills (and occasional spills) racing fans could dream of.
Bristol Motor Speedway is the third-largest sports venue in the United States, with seating for 162,000, and is the seventh-largest in the world.
Bristol occasionally hosts football games as well, most recently in 2016, where East Tennessee State rallied to beat the West Carolina Catamounts 34-31.
Tri-Cities Sports Betting – Cardinals Comeback?
Minor league sports franchises were among the organizations hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Johnson City Cardinals were among them, and as Minor League Baseball announced plans for restructuring and contraction, the Cards were among the casualties.
While the Appalachian League has been restructured as a summer league for collegiate athletes, there is hope of a professional team returning to Johnson City at some point in the not-too-distant future.
Tri-Cities Sports Betting – State-Level Professionals
Looking statewide, the Tennessee Titans, Nashville Predators and Memphis Grizzlies all offer a wider array of betting opportunities due to their longer seasons and higher level of play. The Titans and Predators should both make postseason runs, and the Grizzlies are on the rise, with 2019-20 NBA Rookie of the Year Ja Morant looking like the next superstar!
