Online Sports Betting in Delaware Keeps Climbing

When it comes to sports betting over in Delaware, things have been on the up and up ever since things were made legal three years ago. What has helped the Diamond State keep things rocking in impressive fashion too is that online betting has also been legalized. The same can’t be said for some neighboring areas. With that said, online sports betting in Delaware keeps climbing.

According to a report, the i-gaming, or online betting numbers, continues to grow. Things reached a new high in April, while the numbers were also impressive for May. This isn’t a surprise at all, as plenty of people didn’t hesitate in betting on the NCAA Tournament. Indeed, people checked out the top odds from the best rated sportsbooks and made their wagers.

From start to finish in the tourney, people were making bets both in person and online. There were countless bets made on the Duke vs. North Carolina game in the Final Four and then things also got high with the title game showdown between the Tar Heels and Kansas. With the start of baseball season arriving too, it makes sense people are betting more.

With summer officially here too, you can fully expect the online betting to continue to be on the rise. Then once the football season gets here, then people will surely be checking the NFL odds on a consistent basis and placing countless bets. While Delaware doesn’t have a pro team, their citizens will always be following the Giants, Eagles and more closely. That won’t change here.

Delaware online betting could impact how things play out in Maryland

Another key thing to remember here is that Delaware online betting could impact how things play out in Maryland as well. Believe it or not, but online sports betting is still not legal over in that state, which has caused for plenty of anger and frustration among sports fans in the state. They see what’s going on in Delaware, which has people calling for change to come.

In the case of Maryland, the governor himself has been pushing for online betting to arrive in time for the NFL season. However, it’s totally up in the air if that will happen or not. With the governor pushing for things, though, the hope is that it will help speed up the process. The fact that things are good to go in Delaware may make a difference.

In terms of online betting for the football season, this of course would be a great move for Maryland. Delaware itself is going to see its numbers grow on a consistent basis. People in Maryland are waiting to see if they’ll be given the green light to make bets from their phones or mobile apps. As of now, they can only do so in person at authorized in-person sportsbooks.

For people in Delaware, this isn’t a worry for them, as they’ve been able to make their bets freely for quite some time now. As we’ve said before, the numbers will grow and grow for mobile options. Maryland needs to wake up and catch up to Delaware, otherwise people will continue to be upset. It’s a wait and see, but Delaware should be a great example for Maryland on how they should be doing business.

MLB betting will be massive for Delaware this summer

One thing to keep in mind here is that MLB betting will be massive for Delaware this summer starting right now. In Delaware, people have a huge amount of love for the Philadelphia Phillies. With Bryce Harper coming off his MVP season, the lefty slugger is hoping to keep things rocking the rest of the way this year. Harper really is one of the best players in the game.

For the Phillies, their MLB odds to win the NL East aren’t great, but it’s never too late to turn things around. They could get on a hot streak this summer and give the NY Mets a run for their money in the division. If the Phillies are to get that job done, then they’ll no question need Harper and Co. to really step their games up. Will they be able to do so? Fans sure are hoping so.

This isn’t limited to people in Philly, however, as people all over Delaware are ready to show them major love as well. The Phillies have what it takes to bounce back and the players are ready to make some magic happen. The baseball supporters in Delaware can’t wait to make their bets and keep doing so on a consistent basis. Whether it be online or in person, it’s going to happen.

With the Phillies’ odds not so great right now, that’s not going to scare people away from making their wagers. If anything, they could end up making futures bets on other teams too. With New York being so close, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see an increase in bets coming on the New York Yankees as well.
