DraftKings covers many professional sports leagues and often has extended markets for prop bets on each as well. With 16 sports to choose from, you’re bound to find something to enjoy. Here, we’ve highlighted some of the top options available.
Basketball is also one of the most popular sports in the country, and few betting events can keep up with March Madness. The men’s and women’s college basketball tournaments see millions of dollars wagered each year while betting on individual games, tournament winners, and bracket challenges.
Locally, the Terrapins have won five Big Ten women’s championships since joining the conference in 2014, and the men have qualified for six NCAA tournaments since the same year; the men’s team also won the Big Ten title in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic kept games from being played that year.
Football is king in the U.S., and Maryland is no exception. Whether it’s wagering on the Ravens or in the collegiate ranks with the Terrapins or Navy football in a bowl game, NFL betting accounts for the biggest percentage of Maryland’s sports betting handle.
MLB’s recent rule changes have led to slight increases in scoring, helping to grow the appeal of baseball betting. In Maryland, the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals account for most betting action. Both clubs have been rebuilding over the past few seasons and are on the upswing, though Baltimore is closer to contending for division titles once again.
Tennis gives gamblers practically unrivaled opportunities with DraftKings as events span the globe and the calendar. There's no shortage of volume on the men's and women's tours, which compete weekly between early January and Christmas, giving tennis bettors more chances to win and more chances to find betting value across competitions.

Usually, the weeks leading up to the Masters, one of the most popular U.S. sporting events, are when betting action begins to take a foothold.
Taking advantage of all the numerous markets available, from in-play to each-way, two-ball and three-ball, betting the field or betting head-to-head is key to successful golf betting. DraftKings offers all these different bet types and information for more precise betting.
