James Tedesco is the overwhelming favourite to claim a first Dally M Medal on Wednesday night, but don’t discount Storm legend Cameron Smith making a late charge.

Tedesco has once again been a stand-out player for Sydney Roosters, who are one win away from becoming the first team to win back-to-back NRL premierships since Brisbane in 1992-93.

The explosive fullback has been at the forefront of all the sensational performances from the Roosters in 2019 and is rightly the $1.17 favourite for the Dally M Medal with online bookmaker Beteasy.

However, while Tedesco is undoubtedly in pole position, Smith is at juicy odds of $4.70 with Beteasy to take out what would be a third Dally M Medal.

Tedesco and Smith were both level on 12 points after voting went behind closed doors after Round 12, with Mitchell Pearce leading on 15, ahead of Cameron Munster and Damien Cook on 14. 

Jason Taumalolo was also on 12 points with Smith and Tedesco, with Mitchell Moses one back on 11.

Pearce had a fantastic start to the season as he steered the Knights into the top four, but Newcastle suffered a dramatic slump after the Origin period to miss the finals, costing the halfback the chance at Dally M glory.

Munster and Cook both led their respective clubs to preliminary final finishes, but probably haven’t done enough to eclipse the efforts of Tedesco and Smith.

As mentioned, Tedesco compiled a blistering end to the season and will most likely claim a maiden Dally M Medal, but Smith was part of a Melbourne team that only lost three games during the regular season.

The legendary hooker was consistently among Melbourne’s best in almost every game since Round 12 and will push Tedesco all the way.

Tedesco deserves the heavy favouritism, but Smith is certainly worth a bet at those odds.
