2016 NRL Finals Odds Week 2 – Cowboys and Raiders favourites

September 12, 2016

nrl cronulla sharksThe Storm and Sharks advanced to the NRL Preliminary Finals following victories over the Cowboys and Sharks respectively on the weekend.

Upcoming NRL semi-finals feature the Cowboys vs Broncos on Friday night in Queensland and the Raiders vs Panthers on Saturday in Canberra.

Online bookmaker Sportsbet has installed North Queensland Cowboys as the $1.65 favourites to knock out the Brisbane Broncos $2.25 in next Friday night’s blockbuster semi-final in Townsville.

The Cowboys are a $5.50 chance to defend their NRL title, drifting from $4.00 following their loss to Melbourne Storm.

Following their win over the Cowboys, the Storm has firmed from $3.50 into $2.60 favourites after booking a home preliminary final in two week’s time.

The Canberra Raiders have opened $1.80 against the Penrith Panthers $2.00 in the second semi-final on Saturday night at GIO Stadium.

Raiders were the big losers in the premiership market, blowing out from $5.00 to $9.00 thanks to their loss to the Sharks, who firmed from $7.00 into $4.25.

“The Cowboys should find it much easier back at home next week so we’re not writing them off after one loss,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

“The Storm, on the other hand, are understandably the shortest price we’ve seen any side so far this season.”
