Do the Double on Monday Night NRL
May 23, 2015
Newcastle and Brisbane will battle on Monday night in a match missing several stars through State of Origin commitments. At home and up against a side minus 6 key players the Knights are just over $1.50 favourites to beat the Broncos on Luxbet’s Head to Head Market. But it’s Luxbet’s Half Time Full Time Double Market punters will be interested in thanks to the bookmaker’s offer on the game. Place a wager on the market mentioned above and if your selection is correct after 40 minutes but wrong after 80 you’ll get your stake refunded. Only your first wager on the market qualifies for the special and the refund will be in the form of a bonus bet up, to $100.
The shortest HT/FT double is Knights/Knights which is a couple of cents off even money, while the biggest prices is $10; if Brisbane come from behind at half time and win. Punters can get around $3.60 on the broncos to lead at oranges and after at full time siren. But just how will the contest play out?
Main Men Missing from Monday’s Match
The Novocastrians are without New South Wales enforcer Beau Scott while Dane Gagai is also unlikely to play after being called into the Maroons camp as injury cover. The former Bronco joins 6 of his old teammates in the Queensland squad with Justin Hodges, Josh McGuire, Darius Boyd, Matt Gillet, Sam Thaiday and Corey Parker all on Origin duties. But Brisbane’s side still has some big names in it, with the likes of Ben Hunt, Andrew McCullough and Anthony Milford set to play key roles for their team.
Points to Prove
Not only will some baby faced Broncos be out to show they’re up to NRL standard but Brisbane’s not so inexperienced coach may also have something to prove against his old club. Things didn’t quite work out for Wayne Bennett at Newcastle and he comes up against his former employees for the first time. This certainly is a danger game for the Knights who’ve won just once in their past 6 outings.
