A Football is harder. They are pumped to 13 (12.5 to 13.5) PSI in the NFL while a Basketball in the NBA is 8.5 PSI. PSI is pounds per square inch.

i believe they were looking for the difficulty levels of the two sports rather than the pressure of the ball. in that case it is strictly a matter of opinion eVEN IF IT WAS MORE MATTER OF OPINION fOOTBALL IS WAY MORE CONTACT THAN BASKETBALL THEREFORE FOOTBALL IS WAY HARDER
