But if you won this money would you spend it on on a sports franchise and, if so, which league would you buy it from?
MLB franchises might be a little overpriced for these winnings. The average value of a major league team is about $605 million, according to Forbes. Though the new price tag of the $2.1 billion Los Angeles Dodgers will drive that average up. You can probably buy the Kansas City Royls or Pittsburgh Pirates at a pretty good rate, though.
The NBA is a good bet if you want to go that root. Forbes places the average NBA team at $393 million and the Boston Celtics are valued at $482 million. So, if you have some extra money lying around, then you can afford to buy the Celtics — maybe not after taxes.
If football is your passion, then you can at least afford half a franchise. According to Forbes, an average NFL team can cost $1.04 billion — that’s right billion!
The NHL is probably the best bet with an average value of $240 million per team. Or if you want just use the money to start your own franchise — though the NHL would have to approve it first, of course.
So, which one would you choose? Please share your opinion and vote in the poll below.
