Manly haters haven’t wasted any time sinking the boot into the Sea Eagles, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au receiving more money on them to win the wooden spoon than any other side in the competition since Round 1.
- Manly firm from $34 into $4.50 to win wooden spoon
- Best backed side to win spoon since Round 1
- Sea Eagles the least popular team to win premiership
The Sea Eagles have firmed from $34 into $4.50 in the Least Wins markets. Only Newcastle ($2.00) head them in the market.
Manly have gone from being a $2.05 chance to play finals football to $6.50 after back to back losses to start the season.
Trent Barrett’s men are now $1.04 to miss the Top 8 after beginning the year at $1.70.
“When the Sea Eagles were backed to win the spoon in the preseason, we put it down to people just hating Manly, but the amount of money for them since Saturday suggests punters genuinely think they’ll run last,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
