The main factor is going to be how good of a deal you can get on an internet-only, internet+phone, or internet+minimal TV package from XFINITY. While I was with XFINITY, the cheapest way to get acceptable internet speed (advertised as 45Mbps, worked at 100) was actually an internet+minimal TV package (basically locals + garbage OTA/shopping channels) for $45/mo + taxes/fees, which came out around $57 total. You may have a similar package available in your area, or a similar internet+phone package available... you'll just need to see what's available in your area. You'll also probably want to see what other internet providers may be available in your area... I moved away from XFINITY about a year after AT&T Fiber came to my neighborhood and prices came down (initially they were only offering the 1Gbps tier, but later offered a 300Mbps tier that I opted for).
From there, you just need to figure out where you can get your required sports content from the cheapest... whether that be OTA antenna, over-the-top TV provider (YouTubeTV/Sling/HuluLive/etc), or specific individual network/app access.
