Punters with sportsbet.com.au have taken a huge liking to St George Illawarra during the opening rounds of the season, and it’ll cost the online bookie millions if they can remain on top of the ladder.
· Dragons $101 into $15 to win NRL premiership
· $5.00 out to $81 for Wooden Spoon
· $151 into $10 to claim Minor Premiership
The Dragons have gone from $101 into $15 to win the title, with bets on $700 and $400 at that huge price of $101.
A Top 8 spot for the Red V looks a good thing at $1.38, but one punter got in early with a $2,000 wager at odds of $4.00.
An even more confident fan of Paul McGregor’s men placed $2,000 on the side to finish in the Top 4 at $3.00. They were as long as $13 at one stage.
“We’re already facing a $3 million payout if the Dragons go on and win the competition so we’re basically cheering for 15 other teams from here on in,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
