Melbourne Storm is a well-supported $2.75 favourite, with Sportsbet, to win consecutive NRL grand finals.
The Storm is also in the red at $1.37 for their Preliminary Final clash with the Sharks ($3.10) on Friday night.
In the other final the Roosters are $1.75 favourites over the Rabbitohs ($2.10).
The Roosters ($3.00) and the Rabbitohs ($4.00) are next in order, but the Sharks are struggling to attract bets.
“Punters think the Storm will beat the Sharks and they’ve also launched into them for the grand final. The money is also there for the Roosters, which suggests the top two teams from the regular season will fight out the grand final,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
