Chicago sports fans apparently don’t need Google.

According to an analysis by US Bets, Chicago sports fans rarely turn to Google for sports-related information. The website’s analysis showed Google received 557 sports-related searches per 100,000 residents, apparently making Chicagoans the third-smartest sports fans online. 

New York and Los Angeles were ranked Nos. 1 and 2.

The most-asked search-engine question in Illinois, according to the survey, is “What is the strike zone in baseball?”

Baseball-related questions were the most popular questions in 32 states, followed by football-related questions leading in 12 states.
