Maryland's legislature officially passed a measure to put a referendum question on November's ballot, giving voters the choice on whether to legalize sports betting in the state. The way the question on the ballot is written -- “Do you favor the expansion of commercial gaming in the State of Maryland to authorize sports and event betting for the primary purpose of raising revenue for education?” -- would appear to give the measure a good shot at passing. If voters approve, Maryland lawmakers would have to then draw up more specifics on how sports betting will be implemented in the state. The Senate had included clear implementation measures in the bill it sent to the House, calling for mobile wagering and in-person betting at the state's existing casinos and racetracks. But those specifics around implementation were stripped out of the bill by the House, saying they rewarded existing entities that lacked any diversity. So if voters do officially legalize sports betting in November, it will likely take many more months for the state to start accepting bets. Set the over/under at the beginning of the 2021 NFL season.
