Jonathon Thurston’s Cowboys will not take home the NRL wooden spoon according to Sportsbet punters.
The Cowboys are $4.50 to record the least number of wins this season, but have struggled to attract bets.
The Eels remain firm $2.25 favourites for the dishonour and hold five times more money than the Cowboys.
The Bulldogs are $3.00 and Gold Coast Titans $9.00.
“It’s Thurston’s last season and it would be a shame to see him bow out with his team on the bottom. At the moment they anchor the ladder with the Eels and Bulldogs, but punters are confident they can get something out of the last three rounds,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
