The month of October is quickly approaching. For some, that means postseason baseball is near. However, Google has tracked more National Football League searches than Major League Baseball searches in the past 30 days.
According to an analysis of Google Search data, searches across the United States has trended in favor of the NFL. The image from Google Trends below shows a comparison of NFL (blue) and MLB (red) search data. NFL searches show a steady amount of low search trends until the season started earlier this month. The analysis shows that on football game days, search trends spike. After the weekend football games are over, the NFL data falls towards the MLB search data.
