With Texas being home to famous athletes of baseball, football, and more, there is no doubt the region is full of sporting super-fans, too. But, have you ever caught yourself wondering which sports are most popular in the area?

A new study by TopUSCasinos.com has uncovered the favorite sport in Texas.

To determine the favorite sport, TopUSCasinos.com analyzed Google search data and the number of positive social media sentiments for all top sports, and the results are in!

Taking the trophy is Football as Texan crowds prove to be huge super fans, totaling more search data and positive social media activity than any other game and totally blowing the other sports out of the running as boxing – coming in 2nd – is almost a full index point behind!

Next, we have baseball in a tie with soccer, both of which are sitting comfortably above basketball, who comes in 5th.

The top 5 can be found below:

American Football















To bring the people of Texas their five favorite sports, it was first important to consider both Google search volume data and social media sentiment data for each sport.

Giving each of ten different sports a value for each of these two factors, we ranked them accordingly. From here, each Texas sport was assigned an index score between 0-1, relative to their ranked position, for each of the two factors.

By combining the two index scores, we were able to give each sport a score between 0-2 to find the top five across Texas.
