Broncos 2016 NRL Premiership favourite but money for Eels

broncos-eelsOnline bookmaker Sportsbet has the Brisbane Broncos as $5.00 favourites for the 2016 NRL title, but confidence is high that the Parramatta Eels will back-up their strong pre-season form and be NRL premiership contenders.

The Broncos have been the best backed, but the Eels, despite being down the order at $15.00, are the next best backed side overall – attracting more money than reigning Premiers North Queensland Cowboys, and are nearing a $400,000 payout for Sportsbet.

The Broncos are $1.65 favourites to beat the Eels $2.30 in the 2016 NRL season opener on Thursday, with 41% of the money on the Eels to cause the upset.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs may be out of debt, but the money is not pouring in to support their title quest, with 92% of money bet on their season wins market going on under 13.5.

“The Eels always promise plenty, but rarely deliver and it appears their supporters have fallen into the trap again attracting more money than defending champions the Cowboys,” Said Sportsbet’s Will Byrne.
