That is in addition to the plethora of college sports across the state, including a pair of SEC rivals and a mid-major powerhouse. 

In the NHL, the Nashville Predators are in the process of rebuilding, and the same can be said for the Grizzlies in the NBA. The Tennessee Titans are among the best teams in the NFL with the league's best running back, Derrick Henry, patrolling the backfield. Nashville SC is one of the newest franchises in MLS, and already making a mark in the growing soccer market.

The Tennessee Volunteers obviously dominate the collegiate sports landscape in the state with Memphis a close second for those in the western part of the state. Also in the SEC, Vanderbilt's sports have struggled in recent years, but you can also bet on the Commodores in Tennessee as well. This will also help during the NCAA Tournament when Belmont or one of the other smaller schools in the state are participating.
