BetMGM Sportsbook Maryland is the official sports betting partner of the Washington Nationals and has been since the industry was launched in DC in 2021. Announced in June of 2021, the Washington Nationals and BetMGM signed a multi-year contract, becoming the only sports betting app available at Nationals Park at the time.

As part of the deal, plans were also made to launch a retail BetMGM Sportsbook at Nationals Park, which opened later that year. Unlike other partnerships that professional sports teams in America have with sportsbooks, the BetMGM-Nationals agreement is an exclusive deal that prohibits the Nationals from new deals with other sports betting companies.

Bet types you can choose for the Washington Nationals

For new Maryland bettors who have yet to bet on MLB, there is more than just one way to get involved in the action. Below are a few of the bet types you can choose from when betting on the Washington Nationals.

Moneyline

A bet on the moneyline is the easiest way to bet on the Washington Nationals, as you are just betting on which team will win, at the given odds. The MLB team with the negative (-) next to their number are the favorites (to win), while the positive (+) sign represents the underdog.

Example: Washington Nationals (+150) vs. Atlanta Braves (-130). In this scenario, a $100 bet on the Nationals to win the game would render $230 in winnings ($100 risked + $130 bet) if they can pull off the upset.

Run Line

Also called a point spread in other sports, the run line is the number of runs the oddsmaker expects a team to win by. Another way to think about this is for betting purposes, it is the starting score of a game.

Example: Washington Nationals (+1.5) vs. Seattle Mariners (-1.5). In this scenario, the Mariners would need to win by at least two runs for a Mariners Run Line bet to be a winner. If they win by just one, the Nationals would win all Run Line bets.

Total

Commonly referred to as an “Over/Under” in other sports, the total represents the total number of runs expected to be scored by both teams combined in a given game.

Example: Washington Nationals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates O/U 7.5. In this scenario, if there are more than 7 combined runs scored (i.e. Nationals 5 Pirates 3), the “Over” would be a winner. Anything less, and the “Under” is a winner.

Futures

As the name implies, a Futures bet is one that is a wager for an outcome to happen in the future. For MLB Futures, you can bet on who will win the next World Series, how many wins a team will have in a given season, who will win AL and NL MVPs, and much more.

Example: Washington Nationals +20000 to win the 2024 World Series. In this scenario, a $100 bet for the Nationals to win the World Series in 2024 would payout $20,100 ($100 risked + $20,000 won).

With a capacity of 41,339, fans in the upper deck have a partial view of the Washington Monument and Capitol, making it one of MLB’s more scenic parks.

History of the Washington Nationals

Despite the current version of the Washington Nationals only being around since 2005, baseball in our Nation’s Capital has a long history going back to the late 19th century. Below, we take a closer look at the history of the Washington Nationals and how we got to today.

  • 1884: A team also called the Washington Nationals, who played in the American Association, made their debut.
  • 1886: Another team/franchise, also called the Washington Nationals, played for the first time in the National League from 1886 to 1889.
  • 1891: The Washington Statesman played in the American Association for their first season, before converting to the National League the following year where they remained until 1899.
  • 1901: As part of the newly formed American League, the Washington Senators franchise made its debut, and by 1905 had been renamed the Washington Nationals. They remained the Nationals until 1955, at which time they were renamed back to the Senators.
  • 1960: Following a tumultuous 1960 season, the Senators picked up shop and moved to Minneapolis, where they became the current Minnesota Twins.
  • 1961: A new American League franchise came to DC, also named the Senators, where they played until 1971, moving to Arlington, TX to become the Texas Rangers for the 1972 season.
  • 1969: The Montreal Expos, which were part of a 1969 MLB expansion that also included the present-day Milwaukee Brewers, Kansas City Royals, and San Diego Padres, was formed. Canada’s first MLB team, they were named after the World Expo Fair of 1967.
  • 2005: After 36 years in Montreal, due to dwindling attendance and financial issues, the MLB announced they would be moving the team. New cities in the running were Portland, OR, Las Vegas, NV, Charlotte, NC, and others, before the league ultimately chose Washington, DC.
  • 2019: After a rocky start of just 19–31, the Nationals went on a run of epic proportions, posting a 74-38 record over the final 112 games. Beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games in the NLCS, they then went seven games with the Houston Astros, winning their first-ever World Series in the process.

About the Washington Nationals

Formerly the Montreal Expos, the Washington Nationals as we know them today became a franchise in 2005, following 35 years of history north of the border. In the time since, there have been many ups and downs, culminating with the franchise’s first World Series in 2019. 

As is often the case with teams who go the distance, however, the past few seasons have been tough for a franchise that was just recently at its pinnacle. Following a 2022 season that saw them finish with the worst record in Major League Baseball (MLB) of 55-107, the Nationals stumbled again in 2023, going just 71-91 to finish last in the National League East Division.

They will now enter their 20th season in our Nation’s Capital in 2024, still led by manager Dave Martinez who enters his sixth season at the helm. Unlike the last offseason, which saw many star Nationals depart, this one has remained stable with reliever pitcher Carl Edwards Jr. the only major departure.

Though the 2024 version of the Washington Nationals looks much different than their 2019 World Series team, stars Stephen Strasburg and Victor Robles are still in place, along with a host of young prospects. Can veteran manager Martinez turn things around once again?
