Support for the Eels to win 2016 NRL Premiership

May 9, 2016

eels-warriorsThe support for Parramatta since losing their 12 competition points has been staggering, with online bookmaker Sportsbet bringing their price from $101 to $13.50!

Around 60% of all bets on the premiership winner have been on the Eels over the past week and Sportsbet is facing a payout of nearly one and a half million dollars if Parramatta can go on to win the competition.

Only the Broncos have attracted more individual bets since markets opened in October 2015.

Some of the bets include…

  • 2 x $1,000 bets on Parramatta @ $101 for potential collects of $100,000
  • $1,000 bet on Parramatta @ $67 for a $67,000 payout

“Has the world gone mad?” said Sportsbet’s Christian Jantzen.

“The Eels have gone from $101 long shots to fifth favourites without playing a game and they’re shorter now than when they had their 12 competition points,”
