Below you can see the Top 10 (most successful) and Bottom 10 (least successful) states in terms of gambling during the 2022 college football season. The rankings are based on each state’s collective winning percentage against the spread, via data from

Across the entire U.S., more than 2 million wagers were included, spanning four months from August 27, 2022 through December 27, 2022.



  • The only National Championship state this century not represented is Louisiana.
  • Michigan is the only state not represented from this year’s four CFP teams.
  • The margin between the best state’s (Washington) winning percentage and the worst state’s (Nebraska) winning percentage is 9.7%.
  • Maryland has the country’s highest median income and is ranked No. 2 in terms of gambling success
  • Mississippi has the country’s lowest media income and is ranked No. 49 in terms of gambling success.

Additionally, here is a Twitter map that displays which CFP team each state is rooting for (not betting on, that was sent earlier this week):

The map is based on geotagged twitter data from CFP Selection Sunday (December 4) through yesterday, tracking the top fan hashtags for each team in every state. For example, tracking #GoBlue (Michigan), #GoDawgs (Georgia), #GoBucks (Ohio State), and #GoFrogs (TCU).

More than 250,000 tweets were tracked in total.

Looking at the map, you can see that the Michigan Wolverines have the most support this year.

The state breakdown is as follows:

Michigan - 29 states

Georgia - 11 states
