Head to Head Refund on Every NRL Match in August
July 28, 2015
The first try in an NRL encounter can sometimes count for nothing, just ask the Knights. They scored in the opening 2 minutes last weekend before The Rabbitohs racked up a half century to romp to a 46 point victory! But it won’t matter how much your team loses by in August, if you’ve backed them with CrownBet and they manage the game’s opening 4-pointer, you’ll be refunded.

Place a bet on the Head to Head market for any NRL Matches from Round 21 to Round 25 and if your side scores the first try but loses, CrownBet will be refund your stake with a bonus bet, up to $50. The offer is available for all of August, with your first head to head wager qualifying. Though this round’s two Friday night games will be played on the 31st of July, they’re also included in the special, making the potential number of refund opportunities 32.
Round 20 Preview
The Roosters and Bulldogs battle on Friday night and it was indeed the Dogs who scored the first try in their clash earlier this season before being overrun by the visitors in a 14 point loss. The Chooks are chasing their seventh straight win while Canterbury could drop out of the top 8 if they lose. They’re $3 outsiders to end the Roosters run, with the favourites at $1.40. The odds are a mirror image of Friday’s other match between the Tigers and Storm. Melbourne may be the away team but they’re expected to trounce the toothless Tigers who remain at the foot of the table.
Saturday’s first game is a reverse of a round 9 thriller. The Warriors welcome Cronulla to Mt Smart Stadium having beaten the Sharks after Shaun Johnson scored on the full time siren at Remondis Stadium. Though with the superstar suffering a season ending injury last weekend Cronulla will fancy their chances of revenge especially with the form they’re showing on the road. The Sharks have won 4 of their last 5 away and are a touch over even money to secure a third successive win as the visiting side. The hosts are around $1.75.
The Cowboys and Raiders meet again after playing out perhaps an even more epic encounter earlier this season. Johnathan Thurston’s drop goal at the third attempt sealed a 20-21 triumph for North Queensland in Canberra but it mightn’t be as close in Townsville. The hosts who racked up 46 points against Parramatta on Monday are hot favourites at $1.20 while the Green Machine’s price is $4.70.
The Sea Eagles take on Brisbane in Saturday’s final game. The Broncos belted Manly at Suncorp and are under $1.50 to do the Double at Brookvale Oval. Manly are $2.65 underdogs to end the league leader’s 8 game winning streak.
The Dragons are aiming to avoid and eighth straight loss when they host Newcastle on Sunday. Despite their winless run the Dragons are paying less than $1.40 to beat the $3.10 visitors, who themselves were diabolical in round 20. Having run rampant against Newcastle last Saturday, Souths are the shortest priced team of the round at $1.16 to beat the struggling Panthers. Penrith are paying $5.50 to repeat their round 17 win over their opponents… It was the last time they tasted victory.
Monday’s match involves 2 teams who are closer to the bottom of the table than to the top 8. The Titans tackle the Eels on the Gold Coast in a match up that’s hardly merits a mention. The hosts are paying $1.62, Parramatta are $2.35.
