NRL Futures Betting

There are a number of futures markets that punters can bet on, the most popular being the market for NRL Premiership betting. Premiership odds are available all year round, both in season and out of season making it an attractive market to follow.

Out of season betting on the NRL Premiership market can be risky but often pay a greater dividend. Keep an eye out for any list changes or injury news if you plan to bet on this market.

Another popular futures market is Dally M Medal betting. This is an award voted on by commentators for the ‘player of the year’. Betting on the Dally M Medal is popular in the months and weeks leading up to the NRL season as votes are made public throughout the season. At Round 16 the votes are no longer made public and betting is suspended for integrity issues.

NRL Match Betting

When it comes to betting on individual NRL matches you may have hundreds of markets to chose from depending on your bookmaker of choice. The most popular NRL markets to bet on include head-to-head betting, margin betting, line betting and first try scorer betting.

Head-to-head NRL betting is the most popular market and gains a lot of attention in the media as teams vie for favouritism. When placing a head-to-head bet on rugby league it’s important to do research and take into account a number of factors including both sides record againt the team and at the venue, injury concerns and their form leading up to the match. There are many other factors that can also be taken into account which is what makes it such a popular market.

Margin betting is another favourite option for punters. Margin betting is similar to line betting but with more constraints. The typical margin options in NRL betting are for a team to win by 1-12 points or 12+ points. It’s a market that requires some confidence when betting and often the more research you do the better your chances of winning will be.

Many punters who follow the game closely like to stick to line betting. Bookmakers will set a handicapped margin for each team on each game and punters will bet on whether that team will beat or fail to reach their line. For example a game between Melbourne Storm and North Queensland Cowboys. Melbourne Storm may have a line of -2.5 allowing you to bet on Melbourne Storm either winning by 3+ points or the Cowboys to either win or lose by no more than 2 points.

First Try Scorer betting can be frustrating but a great option for casual punters. Punters and fans who follow the game closely can generally increase their chances of winning with the knowledge of which players are likely to get the ball in their hands and which side a team plays to more often.

State of Origin Betting

State of Origin is the premier event of the NRL season with New South Wales and Queensland battling it out for bragging rights in a 3 game series every year. Betting on the State of Origin has become somewhat of a tradition for recreational gamblers and serious punters alike. Everyone wants to back a winner in the State of Origin.

Man of the Match is a popular exotic market that punters like to bet on but due to the commentators awarding this award their has been some controversial results in past years leaving punters wary of outlaying to much.
