Local Sports Teams To Bet On
Alabama has none of the four major league sports teams in their state (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL). Still, they have professional sports teams in football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and even soccer and roller derby, which still makes sports betting in Alabama pretty interesting.
The NCAA Division I colleges have football, basketball (both men and women), baseball, softball, and women’s soccer programs. The University of Alabama at Birmingham also has a men’s soccer program. The colleges and their team names are:
- University of Alabama Crimson Tide
- Alabama A&M Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs
- Alabama State University Hornets and Lady Hornets
- Auburn University Tigers
- Jacksonville State Gamecocks
- University of North Alabama Lion
- Samford University Bulldogs
- University of South Alabama Jaguars
- Troy University Trojans
- University of Alabama at Birmingham Blazers
The Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers are part of the SEC, considered the strongest NCAA basketball and football conference. Both school teams regularly place at or near the top.
