Maryland sports betting will launch in two stages, starting from Monday November 1st, 5am Eastern Time. Seven Maryland sportsbooks will take the stage during the first day.

November 21st

5am: Maryland sports betting will commence on November 21st at 5 am, with FanDuel Sportsbook opening their site to customers. However, FanDuel Maryland customers can’t yet place bets at 5am. The only thing available to Maryland bettors is browsing the site.
