After the Supreme Court struck down the federal ban on sports betting in 2018, states were free to regulate the activity. Many states have since passed laws allowing sportsbooks to operate in person and online. The industry has grown quickly and is expected to continue its expansion across the U.S. in the coming years.
Maryland sportsbooks are available on mobile and in person at state casinos, off-track betting facilities, and FedEx Field near Washington, DC. Residents can place bets on NFL, MLB, NBA and MLS games. The state’s sportsbooks are regulated by the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency and the Sports Wagering Application Review Commission. FanDuel, Caesars, DraftKings, BetMGM, Barstool, PointsBet, and locally-owned Crab Sports have all been approved by the state’s regulators to offer sports betting in Maryland.
When betting on a game, always use the official streams from your sportsbook of choice. They will usually be a few seconds ahead of public TV streams and even live broadcasts. These few seconds can make a huge difference when placing your bets.
