NRL Round 4 Betting Review

PUNTERS PAL

In what was a good round for punters, with five of the eight favourites saluting, the tone was set from the opening match. The Roosters, back in form and at home against a battling Broncos, were well found to do some damage. Not only did they make a mess of Brisbane, but they also made a mess of the bookies as well.

 

Parramatta also proved a fill up for punters. Having opened the week a 2.5 point outsider, injuries to key Cronulla players, and a subsequent push toward the Eels, saw them start a 2.5 point favourite and cover with ease in a 24-12 win.

 

BOOKIE’S BEST

Manly broke the hearts of the Bunnies but won the hearts of the bookies with its golden point victory over Souths. Outside of the Roosters, the Rabbitohs were the best-backed team of round four but failed to deliver the dividend for the faithful.

 

While the always well-backed Storm got out of jail against the Bulldogs, the closeness of the win meant a majority of money stayed with the bookies. Such was the confidence in Melbourne, Craig Bellamy’s men had been backed for plenty at the 13+ margin and to cover the 14.5-point line and got nowhere near either.

 

TRY-UMPHANT ROUND FOUR

Punters had a fill-up of a weekend in the first try-scorer markets with the best-backed player in four of the eight games saluting.

 

Warriors’ David Fusitiu’a ($8), Tigers’ Corey Thompson ($11), Tom Trbojevic ($9) of the Sea Eagles and Nic Cotric ($9) of the Raiders had first try bettors celebrating.

 

MULTI MAGIC

It wasn’t a huge round for big collects but kudos to the Ladbrokes’ punter who nailed the winning combination of Penrith/Manly/Canberra/Parramatta/Melbourne/St George Illawarra for $50 @ $37.68 to collect $1884
