WHERE TO BET ON THE RUGBY LEAGUE WORLD CUP
BETTING ON RUGBY LEAGUE
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.
