Broncos firm into favouritism against Sharks in 2017 NRL Season opener

February 28, 2017

The Cronulla Sharks and Brisbane Broncos will kick off the 2017 NRL rugby league season on Thursday 2nd March 2017 at Southern Cross Group Stadium in Sydney.

Online bookmaker Sportsbet has completely swapped the odds for the opening round NRL blockbuster, with Cronulla easing from $1.80 favourites to $2.00 outsiders, while Brisbane have been backed in from $2.00 to $1.81.

Seven times as much money has been plonked on the Broncos in comparison to the Sharks.

Punters have deserted Cronulla since Grand Final day with the premiers blowing out from $9 to $15 to defend their title.

As defending premiers playing on their home ground, we had to put up the Sharks as favourites, but sheer weight of money has turned the odds upside down overnight,”” said Sportsbet’s Christian Jantzen.
