Tampa Bay has become one of the hottest sports cities in America.
The Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup finals, more than two months after they entered the N.H.L. bubble in Toronto.
This was followed by the Tampa Bay Rays competing in the 2020 World Series. Ultimately, the Rays lost to the LA Dodgers.
To cap things off, Tom Brady joined the Buccaneers in 2020. This immediately catapulted the Bucs to top 5 favorite status in the league.
This sports renaissance – in theory at least – should result in an increased demand on sports gambling in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area.
We would be remiss in pointing out that, even with a top MLB team, Tampa fans don’t really show up. Well, they do when teams like the Yankees or Red Sox come to town. It’s actually a home game for these two as the Northeastern transplants outnumber the natives.
But if any city deserves a Super Bowl, it’s Tampa. Super Bowl LV will be played here in February….with fans.
