Get to Know FanDuel Maryland

FanDuel launched in 2009 as a daily fantasy sports betting site, getting almost a three-year jump on eventual top DFS competitor DraftKings MD. When the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) unconstitutional, it allowed legal sports betting across the country and the FanDuel sportsbook transferred much of its focus to that medium, capitalizing on a large existing customer base from DFS .

FanDuel has since solidified its standing as an operator rivaled by few others, with a strong retail sportsbook presence in 70% of the states in which it currently operates — another plus for this established and respected brand.

The FanDuel Maryland betting site is owned and operated by Flutter Entertainment, an Irish sports betting company that merged its U.S. operations under the FanDuel brand to expand its U.S. sports betting business.

Popular Fanduel Maryland Sports Betting Options

There are hundreds of different ways to make sports wagers through the FanDuel online sportsbook. Here are some common and popular FanDuel sports betting options explained:

  • Moneyline Bets

    Moneyline bet: A straight wager on one team or player to win a game or match.

  • Spread

    A wager on one team to cover a certain amount of points. For baseball, the spread is called the run line with a constant 1.5 spread. In hockey betting its spread is the puck line on the FanDuel sportsbook, where again the favorite is -1.5 goals and the underdog is +1.5.

  • Totals

    Betting on whether the combined points will go over or under a predetermined total. Also known as the Over/Under.

  • Prop Bets

    A wager on a certain outcome within a game that isn't reliant on the final result, such as the number of strikeouts a pitcher will record or if a coin toss will be heads or tails.

  • Futures

    A wager on a future event, such as which team will win the Super Bowl well before it's played, as offered through the FanDuel sportsbook. Futures also include individual outcomes, like who will win the NFL MVP award or the Heisman Trophy in college football.

  • Parlay

    Parlay bet: combine multiple bets into a single ticket. More selections mean more profit but all selections must win to cash the parlay ticket.

Customers will have various online betting options through FanDuel in the state on the Baltimore Ravens, Orioles and more. Futures bets on popular teams in the state will be available from the get-go on the FanDuel sportsbook app and FanDuel desktop platform, along with daily betting options on many markets.

Features Available at FanDuel Sportsbook Maryland

The FanDuel Maryland features to enhance the customer betting experience goes beyond placing traditional bets. Some of these features are:

Live Betting

Real-time betting lines and player/game props on major sports for FanDuel betting in Maryland on basketball, baseball, NHL betting, football and virtually every sports market FanDuel online sportsbook carries. These wagers could be on an adjusted line at halftime of a football game or on what will happen in a particular inning in a baseball game, along with full-game bets. To live bet, select "Live Now" from the homepage menu, showing how many options are currently live.

Cash Out

Customers can cash out a previously placed wager before the bet is settled to lock in a profit or salvage losses. Wagers that are cash-out eligible will state such after the bet is placed and viewed through the "My Bets" tab then "Active" wagers. Typically, odds boosts and bets made through a promotion are not cash-out eligible, but generally, any straight wager will be eligible for cash out from the moment the bet is placed. Like other online sportsbooks, FanDuel doesn't allow for canceling a bet, so the cash-out option provides an alternative to this.

Odds Boost

Has extensive offerings across numerous sports markets. FanDuel groups odds boosts by sport to help you find exactly what you want and increase your chances of winning. Another feature that makes FanDuel sportsbook one of the best is that original odds are displayed next to the "boosted" odds, providing transparency on the value you're receiving. Some other online sportsbooks don't provide this, highlighting another area in which FanDuel online sportsbook is one of the superior operators in the game.

Same Game Parlay

Same-game parlays are becoming wildly popular with casual and seasoned bettors alike. FanDuel runs TV and radio spots advertising its same-game parlay option and for good reason — the feature is really useful and the operator even provides some promotions that offer parlay protection. FanDuel marks same-game parlays with a green "SGP" icon to help bettors know which games are eligible for this feature. Combos are plentiful but not all will qualify for a same-game parlay. If this is the case, the bet slip will state which bets are ineligible to be included.

How to Create a FanDuel Maryland Account

During our FanDuel sportsbook review, we found the company has a straightforward registration process to create an account. The simplicity in this area is because FanDuel is a large and established brand with tremendous resources.

The straightforward process of creating a FanDuel sportsbook account takes less than five minutes. Customers then can partake in the FanDuel sportsbook online in Maryland and take advantage of the risk-free first bet.

To register an account, you will be required to provide a valid email address, create a username and password. Next, enter your first and last name, physical address and last four digits of your Social Security number. The personal details FanDuel requests are for identity verification and to protect your identity when sports betting online.

FanDuel Maryland sportsbook also offers customers the option to create their new account through Facebook which will qualify for the same benefits when using the FanDuel sportsbook promo code. Included in that method is the risk-free bet for FanDuel.

Your account will be created after identity verification, which is generally an instantaneous process, and you'll be directed to make your first deposit to reap the rewards of the FanDuel sportsbook promo code. If a FanDuel sportsbook promo code is required during registration (we will list it here) be sure to enter it during account registration.

Once you have funded your account for FanDuel betting in Maryland, you are all set to place your initial, risk-free bet.

An important note on account registration: If you already have an account for FanDuel horse racing, use that account login information rather than creating a new one with the same information because doing so could result in your accounts being locked. If you have an existing DFS account, sign up for a sportsbook account with the same email used for DFS and the accounts will be linked.
