World’s most valuable sports teams of 2018

WASHINGTON — Everyone knows that sports are more than just fun and games. They are emotional, they are thrilling and they showcase the human spirit at its best (unless you’re a Cubs fan). Every victory is a battle.

Sports are also big business. We’re talking billions and billions here.

Forbes has compiled its list of the most valuable sports teams for 2018.

Spoiler alert: 29 of the NFL’s 32 teams made the top 50. The Bills, Bengals and Lions did not make the list.

So while baseball is America’s pastime, it’s clear that football is America’s sport.

Check the gallery below to see where the clubs rank (some teams were tied for value).
