NRL Tips & Betting advice
Betting on NRL Rugby League
NRL footy is one of the most popular sports in Australia and NRL betting is available on a range of markets, including the premiership and Dally M Medal.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have noticed that with the advancements in technology and the internet, more and more tasks can be done from your home PC. Things like internet banking and personal investing are all done online and taken for granted now. Sports betting is now done online too.
No longer do you need to pop out during your work lunch break to visit a betting branch. The days of queuing up to place a bet on your footy team are well and truly a thing of the past. If you love your footy, you can now use online betting sites such as Ladbrokes or BetEasy to place your bets.
NRL BET TYPES
NRL betting is evolving all the time. In the past, you just selected the NRL team you thought was going to win and bet in the head-to-head market or possibly on the winning margin of each game. Now there’s a host of different bets you can place on NRL teams, players, margins, inpidual awards, Grand Final winner and more. You can bet on inpidual games, the NRL premiership, Dally M Medal and even in some novelty markets.
Fancy an NRL bet on something a little more obscure? How about betting on the first player to score a try? Or the time of the first try? Or even whether more points will be scored in the first or second half. The list goes on. There are also plenty of offers and money back specials from the bookmakers each weekend to take advantage of.
But perhaps best of all, because you’re betting online, all odds are 100 per cent up to date. That means you bet both before and during the match and be sure you’re getting the very best live odds available for all your NRL bets.
You can place a huge array of different bets on rugby league and we look at some of the most popular ones.
HEAD-TO-HEAD: Head to Head betting is the easiest way to have a punt on most sports matches. Simply select who you think will win the game and if they emerge victorious so do you.
LINE BETTING and HANDICAP BETTING: Line betting is when the bookmaker handicaps a team by setting a specific margin with the aim on making the game even between the two sides. For example, if the bookmaker believes Team A is a 10-point better team than Team B, they will handicap Team A by 10 points. The line therefore becomes Team A to beat Team B by more than 10 points or Team B to come within 10 points of Team A. Then both outcomes become equal odds, which is ultimately around $1.90 the majority of the time.
WINNING MARGINS: Margin betting is when the bookmaker breaks up the number of possible end results by putting in a margin. The punter must therefore select the correct result as well as the correct margin. For example, if you believe Team A will beat Team B and want to also bet on the margin, you will have to correctly pick how many points will be between the two sides at the end of full-time. So if you think Australia will win in a margin of 1-12 points you’d select that option. Or maybe you think New Zealand will win a game by 13+ points.
HALF-TIME/FULL-TIME DOUBLE: This option allows you to bet on who you think will be leading the game at both halftime and fulltime. There are many possibilities that can occur in any match, particularly as a draw is an option.
Team A/Team A
Team A/Team B
Team B/Team B
Team B/Team A
FIRST TRYSCORER: This option allows you to choose which player on either team you believe will score the first try of the game. You can also bet on the last tryscorer in most games.
