How to Bet
Betting on the NRL is easy. Choosing the best bookmaker that suits your betting style is the first thing that you should do. Second, after selecting a reputable bookmaker, you should sign up to register for an account and have it verified. Lastly, you should fund your account to start betting.
When you have funds in your account, you can already start browsing all the markets, not just in NRL but also in other sports events.
You can watch the game live on Channel 9 and Fox Sports free. If you have purchased the Digital Pass, you can watch the live streaming of every NBL game.
State of Origin
As mentioned before, the State of Origin is one of the punters’ favorites where they place their bets. It is a sports event in which Queensland and New South Wales contend each other three times each year. Many sports enthusiasts and punters do not want to miss this game to support and back their favorite team.
The Dally M Medal is another market where punters place their bets. Commentators vote to determine the right recipient of this award. The votes are available in public, where everyone can see them throughout the season. However, the votes are already unavailable in public at Round 16.
The NRL Premiership is another favorite market of the punters. It is because the odds are available each year, whether it is in or out of season. However, the out of season is the riskier one but offers a higher return. To get better odds of winning in the out of the season bet, make sure to keep yourself updated on the news and changes on the lists.
Individual Match Betting
There are hundreds of markets when it comes to betting on the individual match. Among these markets are line betting, margin betting, and head-to-head betting.
The line betting is advisable to those punters who can monitor everything that is going on in the game. The bookmakers set a boundary for every team in every game. To win this bet, the punters should determine whether a team will be able to beat the fixed line or not.
Margin betting is almost the same as the line betting, in which the bookmakers will set a margin, which is typically 12+ points.
In head-to-head betting, you will determine what will be the most likely outcome of the NRL match, whether it is a win or lose.
