This is the time of year when things are going to be booming for Maryland sports betting. As great as things are during the baseball campaign, with people paying attention to the close-by squads, there’s no question that football action is the king in terms of legal bets. And with the regular season almost here, you better believe that NFL Wagers are already off to a hot start for Maryland sports betting.
For local citizens, they’re always going to be paying close attention to the Washington Commanders. According to a local report, the state has seen a surge in in-person and online bets for NFL action as a whole. With Washington, they’re still in a bit of a rebuild, but this organization has plenty of hype ahead of Week 1 getting here. Sam Howell has been named as the starting quarterback and he’s going to look to make a lot of noise.
Howell may not be the biggest name, but no one can deny that he has a cannon for a right arm and that he’s going to help open up the field. Terry McLaurin remains one of the best wideouts in the NFC East – fans are ready for him to put on a show once again this campaign. He’ll no question take off a lot of pressure for Howell, who will be looking his way early and often this campaign to move the chains.
The Commanders don’t hold the best NFL betting odds to win the division, but they’re going to be in line to make plenty of noise. The Eagles, Giants and Cowboys are entering the new campaign in what should be a three-team race to win the division, but the Commanders have what it takes to post plenty of upsets this fall and winter. People will surely be betting big on said upsets to go down.

Online bets have been on fire in Maryland since the November launch
Do you know what has made things better for lawmakers and officials? The fact of the matter is that online bets have been on fire in Maryland since the November launch. This is only going to lead to plenty of mobile action once Week 1 of the regular season gets here in less than two weeks. Futures bets are already being placed, but online bets, including live ones, will 100 percent be going down for the Commanders.
As excited as people are for Washington to take the field, it’s important to keep in mind that other teams are being eyed as well. Ahead of the opening kickoff of the new season, the Kansas City Chiefs hold the top Super Bowl betting odds to bring home the Lombardi Trophy. Despite Commanders fans not liking the Chiefs, this doesn’t mean that they’re not going to be placing bets on them in ’23.
However, the Chiefs aren’t the only ones with strong hopes of winning it all. It’s quite difficult to go back-to-back in winning the Super Bowl. That’s why a lot of people, including in Maryland, are high on teams like the Bengals, Eagles, Ravens, Cowboys, Giants, Lions, Jaguars, Bills and more. This is really feeling like it’s going to be an incredible season in the NFL. Luckily for people in Maryland, they’re going to take full advantage of the betting laws in the state.
While the official numbers for July and August are yet to be revealed, we are expecting some monster figures for Maryland. Then once the NFL officially starts, the bets will be flowing. We all saw some strong bets during the preseason across the country and this was easily the case for Maryland. Officials can’t wait to see how things go in September through January. Things are going to be quite high.

MLB betting is only making things better for Maryland right now
Taking a look at things as a whole, MLB betting is only making things better for Maryland right now. With the excitement for Week 1 of the NFL campaign to get here, it’s easy to forget that things are heating up in the bigs. The end of the MLB regular season is almost here and then things are really going to get intriguing for the postseason. While it’s been a disappointing year for the Washington Nationals, fans are paying attention to nearby squads.
The Phillies are a popular squad in the area and there are big-time expectations for Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber and others. If the Phillies can close the campaign on a high note, then we could see them make noise in the playoffs. This would be great to see, as Philly took home the NL pennant not long ago. So, what will be on the way for them this fall?
That’s what people can’t wait to find out. MLB wagers will continue to skyrocket. Add in the fact that the NFL’s regular season is almost here and there’s buzz all over the sports-betting world. Things are going great for Maryland and more good news will surely be on the way soon.
