The wait is finally over! As of 9:00 A.M. EST Wednesday morning, Maryland sports fans can now legally bet on sports from the comfort of their homes.
After legalizing sports betting over two years ago, Maryland finally made a push to officially launch by Thanksgiving day. Seven sportsbooks will be available in Maryland at launch, though our favorites are DraftKings Sportsbook and PointsBet.
Both DraftKings and PointsBet offer an easy-to-use interface, competitive odds, and incredible promotions to suit your betting needs. New users can also rack up to $2150 in bonuses by claiming the exclusive offers below:
- Make Your First Deposit
- Bet $5+ On Any Pre-Game Moneyline
- Win $150 In Free Bets If Your Team Wins
- Get up to a $500 Free Bet if your first Fixed-Odds cash bet loses, and up to a $1,500 Free Bet if your first PointsBetting cash bet loses with PointsBet’s Second Chance
Bettors must be over the age of 21 to place bets in Maryland but online sports betting is not restricted to Maryland residents – you only need to be physically located in the state to place a bet.
Unlike some other states, Maryland launches with a rather extensive list of approved betting markets, ranging from college football to eSports.
