The Eels remain the $1.70 favourites, with Sportsbet, to collect this season’s wooden-spoon.
With four rounds remaining the Cowboys, on the bottom of the ladder with the Eels, have firmed from $5.00 into $2.80 for the dishonour.
The Bulldogs were one-time second favourites at $2.70, but after two wins in a row they are on the third line of betting at $9.00 to finish the season with the least amount of wins.
“It really is an intriguing battle at the bottom of the table. The Eels and Cowboys have to play each other in round 24, which could decide it, but on paper the Eels looked to have the tougher run home,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
