Cronulla has been a favourite of punters in the past few rounds but they turned on the Sharks at the weekend in a shrewd move which landed many collects.
Having thumped the Tigers last week, punters banked on the Raiders having regained their mojo and the Green Machine didn’t disappoint.
The best result for bookies in round 14 was one which had punters wondering where it all went wrong.
Having overcome a horror start, the Cowboys looked set to deliver on investment only for it to go pear-shaped late and cost punters plenty.
The Broncos also travelled south to Parramatta Stadium with weight of money behind them only to come up well short and deliver the bookies another success.
FIRST TRY FILL-UP
He might have lost his spot in the NSW side, but Latrell Mitchell won’t be short of offers to buy him a beer to drown his sorrows.
Backed in from $9.50 to $7.50 to bounce back from a week of intense scrutiny and cross first, Mitchel delivered.
One punter extra chipper, after putting a $1000 bonus bet on him at $8
Not so great for punters were Junior Paulo (Eels) $46, Michael Chee-Kam (Tigers) $31 and Aiden Sezer (Raiders) $29.
A left-field bet which ultimately resulted in a monster return on investment, this week’s NRL Nostradamus is the punter who combined FIVE first half try scorers across five different games.
Brian Kelly (GC) $4.50/Josh Addo-Carr (Storm) $2.60/Josh Hoffman (Eels) $4.50/Reuben Garrick (Manly) $2.90/Latrell Mitchell (Roosters) $3.00.
The $15 wager at $458.06 netted said punter $6870.98
