Amanda Yeager of the Baltimore Business Journal reported that "Sports betting is live in the Baltimore region.
Live Casino & Hotel in Hanover and Baltimore's Horseshoe Casino switched on their sportsbooks Friday, a long-anticipated step that follows three years of debate, negotiations and planning for sports betting in Maryland. The first sports wagers in the state were cast Thursday at MGM National Harbor in Prince George's County.
Casino officials, sports stars and Gov. Larry Hogan turned out for the inauguration of sports betting at both casinos Friday. Former Ravens player and NFL Hall of Famer Ed Reed cast the first sports wager at Live Casino, betting $20 that Dustin Poirier will win at UFC 269, a mixed martial arts competition taking place Dec. 11. At Horseshoe, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott bet that the Ravens will win the next Super Bowl, and that the team's quarterback, Lamar Jackson, would once again be named the NFL's most valuable player.
In Baltimore, Horseshoe's new sportsbook is another piece in plans for a growing entertainment hub that casino officials hope will increase traffic and revenues. The Warner Street Entertainment District will also feature a Topgolf facility and a performance venue, the Paramount."

Amanda Yeager writes, "The Ravens and Caesars Entertainment will collaborate on sports betting as the new industry takes root in Maryland. The NFL team and Caesars, which counts Baltimore's Horseshoe Casino as a subsidiary, announced a deal Wednesday that establishes Caesars Sportsbook as a sports betting partner for the Ravens and gives the casino operator prime visibility within M&T Bank Stadium....
"The partnership with Caesars is the third agreement the Ravens have forged with sports betting entities since state lawmakers gave sports wagers the go-ahead this spring. The team has previously announced deals with BetMGM and DraftKings.
Kevin Rochlitz, chief sales officer for the Ravens, said the agreement with Caesars is the team's last on sports betting.
