Surely, you’re able to hear the bickering already.

“There’s no way…” is there?

According to a recent study conducted by the professionals at Howtobet.com, it is true. Wrestling fans just nudged out fans of the NHL as the smartest of all sports.

If you are a true sports fan, the introduction to this piece will draw you and as soon as you hit the chart with the “Smartest Sports Fan Bases” you will be hooked. You learn that wrestling fans are indeed the smartest overall with an IQ score of 112.6. NHL fans were second at 112.3.

The average sports fan will, of course, question the validity of the survey. The article answers that question with a section on the Methodology used to arrive at the conclusions. Howtobet.com worked with professional psychologists to administer a four-part IQ test. Over 1,000 U.S. sports fans – 1,006 to be exact – each of whom supported at least one sport and team across football, baseball, hockey, basketball, motor sports, and wrestling, took part in the study.

The test was broken up into four parts: Verbal Intelligence, Mathematical Ability, Logical Reasoning, and Visual Reasoning. Each of these is a key indicator of intelligence.

What is also interesting about the article is finding out which sports come in as the least intelligent sports fans. NASCAR fans check that box, with fans of Major League Baseball coming in just a few points higher.

The article also goes into some depth with a Top 20 list dedicated to average IQ scores for the Most Intelligent Sports Fans study as well one  for the Least Intelligent Sports Fans. These polls take a look at fans of specific sports teams and individual players for sports that don’t support a team. WWE is an example.

For instance, fans of wrestlers Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan checked in at No. 1 and No. 2 on the Most Intelligent Fans list. Fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, and NASCAR’s Team Penske were No. 1, 2, and 3 on the list of Least Intelligent Fans.

There is even a section that shows that female sports fans, on average, have higher IQ scores than males. It’s just one of many surprises in a well-thought out, well-conducted study on sports fans in the U.S.
