Ravens, NFL Win Big In Baltimore/DC Sports Team Survey By Price Busters

So, which sports team in the Baltimore/Washington DC region is the most popular? With 9 locations in the area, we at Price Busters thought it would be a good idea to survey our website visitors about their favorite local sports teams.

Here are the results:

  • The Ravens are, by far, the most popular team in the area. In fact, 49.2% of voters responded that the Ravens are their most popular team!
  • The Redskins came in #2, posting a solid 25.1%
  • The Orioles came in third with 12.9% of the vote.
  • John Wall & the Wizards came in 4th with 9.5%.
  • Interestingly, the first place Nationals registered only 2% of the vote.
  • Even though they just finished a first-place season, the Capitals came in last at just 1.4%!

Who is the big winner here? You could say that it’s the NFL. The two most popular teams in the area are both football teams, and combined for 74.3% of the vote! That means that 3 out of every 4 voters listed an NFL team as their favorite!
