Punters opt for Storm and Cowboys in 2016 Preliminary Finals

September 20, 2016

storm cronkThe Storm and the Cowboys are the punter’s slight elect in latest 2016 NRL Finals betting at online bookmaker Sportsbet.

Although, they’re finding it difficult to single out one team in each of this weekend’s NRL Preliminary Finals.

Melbourne Storm is the $1.43 favourite ahead of the Canberra Raiders $2.95, but Sportsbet reports that the Storm holds just $42 more in wagers.

The Raiders defeated the Panthers 22-12 to advance to a Storm showdown at AAMI Park on Saturday 24th September 2016 in Melbourne.

In the other Preliminary final North Queensland Cowboys head betting on $1.75, but again the $2.12 outsiders, the Sharks, hold more money.

North Queensland was too strong for the Brisbane Broncos on the weekend winning 26-20 to set up a clash with the Sharks for a Grand Final berth.

The Cowboys and Sharks meet at Allianz Stadium on Friday 23 September 2016 in Sydney.

In 2016 NRL Grand Final betting the Storm remain the $2.50 favourite to win the NRL Premiership, ahead of the Cowboys $3.60, Sharks $4.50 and Raiders $6.00.

“Maybe it is the loyal fans sticking with their teams, but it is just about 50/50 in punter support for both matches,” said Sportsbet’s Will Byrne.
