Maryland online sports betting is not yet permitted. In November 2020, however, there will be a voter referendum on the subject of Maryland sports betting. If you want it, vote yes on the ballot.

In contrast, horse and greyhound race betting are already legal in the state and there are plenty of retail and online racebooks to place bets. In addition to race track betting, there are also several off-track betting locations authorized to take bets in Maryland as well. 

If horse racing isn’t your thing there are also some great fantasy draft betting options. Daily fantasy sites and apps are also legal in Maryland. Online casinos and other forms of online gambling are currently not legal in the state.

Real-money online sports betting in MD isn’t yet regulated; you cannot do it. However, there are a few retail betting locations, so if/when sports betting is legalized, online sportsbooks should be quick to follow. Here is a list of horse tracks where you can bet currently

MD Sports Betting Rules

Though currently only horse racing and daily fantasy are legal, Maryland is primed to expand the industry. However, with all of the legal setbacks they’ve had, new legislation might not come until 2021. 

Also, Maryland does not authorize or regulate any offshore online sportsbooks – so it’s best to stick to your legal domestic options. In addition to being illegal, these options also have the possibility of not being secure. We want you to bet safely and smartly!

Since Maryland online sports betting is still technically illegal, here are some options for horse racebooks.

Listed below are two popular sites and apps that offer daily fantasy Maryland online sports betting along with their promo offers. 

  • FanDuel DFS
  • DraftKings DFS
