Round 13 betting summary
The Newcastle Knights. It had been a quiet couple of weeks for the Knights and the Tigers, but Ladbrokes punters were more than confident the former would bounce back, and they did. We saw big attention for Adam O’Brien’s men in match betting and at the line, and when Kalyn Ponga crossed for the first of his two tries, a horror result for the bookies was all but sealed.
Punters are still refusing to abandon the Broncos and, yet again, their Round 13 game with Souths proved to be a honey hole for the bookies. The Broncos received ceiv big g interest at a 10point line, but Rabbitohs covered it. Dane Gagai (pictured) crossing for the game’s first try was something of a small win for punters, but it was otherwise a game heavily skewed in favour of the book, which included a mammoth $20k bet on the Broncos to win at $3.50.
FIRST TRY FILL-UP
All but two games delivered punters a winning result in First Try Scorer betting, but Anthony Don was a noteworthy outcome. The Titans’ winger celebrated his new contract extension with a try in the fourth minute of Sunday’s Queensland derby. His $9 quote attracted good support, and for good reason.
Round 13 got under way in the best way possible for one lucky Ladbrokes punter. They selected four legs in the Dragons-Storm game: Under 40.5 Points, Zac Lomax Anytime Try Scorer, Joseph Manu Anytime Try Scorer, and the Roosters to win 1-12, boosting their odds to
$168.83. They then laid down $70 for a truly impressive return of more than $11K.
BACKING THE FUTURE
Another week, another impressive win for Penrith and a move in Premiership betting from $5 into $4.25. The Broncos went $4.50 into $3 in our Most Losses market.
