Cowboys v Cronulla Cash Back Offer
September 16, 2015
Week 1 of the NRL Finals saw close contests and nail-biting finishes. Ladbrokes refunded head to head bets on the losing sides in 3 out of the 4 games after all but one of the matches were decided by 6 points or less. The bookmaker’s ‘Lose by Under 7 Points Cash Back Offer’ is available again this weekend; will it rescue punters once more?
Cowboys and Cronulla Could be Close Again
Ladbrokes clients who backed the Cowboys to beat Brisbane were refunded after the visitors fell by 4 points in their Qualifying Final at Suncorp Stadium. So will punters stick with North Queensland in week 2? This time the Cowboys head into the game as favourites when they host Cronulla on Saturday night. The home team are a shade under $1.40 to advance to the Preliminary Finals while the Sharks are $3.15 underdogs. No matter which side you select recent history suggests you’re a chance to get your money back, with 3 of the last 5 games between the 2 teams decided by a converted try or less.
Can Cronulla Cause Another Upset in Townsville?
Cronulla crushed the Rabbitohs last weekend to keep their season alive and have new found momentum heading into the match. So should their price be shorter in a 2 horse race? If you look at their results against the Cowboys this year than the answer may well be yes. The Sharks beat North Queensland on both occasions in the regular season, coming from 18 nil down to win by 6 in Townsville in round 16 while they won by double that margin in round 22. Could they make it 3 straight wins against their opponents?
Ladbrokes are offering enhanced odds on selected ‘Tryscorer and Win Combinations.’ Customers can get $3 for Antonio Winterstein to score a try in a Cowboys win or the same price for North Queensland’s opposite winger Kyle Feldt to cross in a victory. Valentine Holmes to score a 4-pointer in a Sharks upset is at $6.50; while a price of $7.50 is available on Sosaia Feki to cross the line in a Cronulla triumph.
