Punters ignored the history books when backing the Bunnies in the nation’s capital and it proved a profitable move with Souths saluting on Saturday night. While some money did come late for Canberra, the Rabbitohs has been well backed throughout the week, delivering the cash en route to the top of the table.
The Knights recent good form saw money also come for them against the Dragons in a move which looked a winner from early in the match.
It was a Friday night fill-up for the bookies as the heavily-backed premiership favourite Roosters fell to the Broncos at Suncorp.
FIRST TRY FILL-UP
Storm speedster Ryan Papenhuyzen might have been making his first start but, after hot form off the bench, he was well found in the first try market on Thursday night at $11.
Papenhuyzen, James Tedesco $10 (Roosters), Dale Copley $9 (Titans) and Cody Walker $11 (Souths) were all the best backed player in their respective games and all did the right thing by punters.
A Sunday afternoon Same Game Multi ended the weekend in style for one Ladbrokes punter combining Mitchell Pearce anytime try scorer/Dylan Walker any time try scorer/ Newcastle win at odds of 47/1.
His $50 investment returning a tidy $2350
