This is no early April Fool’s joke – Manly have received the second highest number of bets to finish last in season 2015.
Yes, that’s right…..only the $2.25 favourites the Titans have been more popular in wooden spoon betting with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
The Sea Eagles are on the eighth line of betting at $51 in the ‘least wins’ market but the fact remains there’s been more money placed on Geoff Toovey’s men to run last than the likes of the Raiders, Dragons or Sharks.
“The chances of Manly winning their first ever wooden spoon appear as likely as Cherry-Evans and Foran backflipping on their deals and staying with the club. There are obviously a lot of Manly-bashers out there,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
At the other end of the spectrum, Manly are priced at $21 to win the premiership.
