Sportsbet's Specials on Roosters v Rabbitohs
March 11, 2015
The Rabbitohs and Roosters both recorded rampaging round 1 wins now the two favourites for this year’s NRL premiership will go head to head on Sunday. The Sydney showdown should be a blockbuster and Sportsbet’s specials on the game have added even more excitement to the massive match. The Bookmaker will refund losing head to head bets up to $100, if your team leads at half time but then blows it; while Sportsbet also have a ‘First Tryscorer’ money back offer available. Members first bet on the opening tryscorer will be refunded up to 100 bucks if their losing selection scores any other try in the game.
Who Could be an Opening Tryscorer?
The Bunnies and Roosters racked up ten tries between them in the opening NRL Round. The reigning Premiers scored five against the Broncos, in a 36-6 victory; centre Dylan Walker began the drubbing at Suncorp Stadium. He’s around $11 to repeat the feat against the Roosters; while teammates Greg Inglis and Joel Reddy are at the same price, both men also scored against Brisbane. Last year’s leading tryscorer Alex Johnston didn’t manage to get over the line but he’s still the favourite to be the first tryscorer on Sunday, and the only player from either team under double figures.
Sydney City also found crossed five times in a 24 point triumph over the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville. Wonder Winger Daniel scored in the opening minutes as the Roosters ran riot. At $10 the big back is the shortest price Bondi boy to score the first try again. Boyd Cordner bagged two tries for the Chooks, one either side of the break, but if you think he can be a surprise opening tryscorer you’ll get around $26 on Sportbet’s market.
Sportsbet’s ‘half time leaders and lose’ refund proved handy for punters last weekend with the Bookmaker giving back more than $80,000 to account holders who placed head to head win bets on the Titans and Warriors after both sides lost despite leading at the break. The Roosters and Rabbits both had strong leads after 40 minutes in their opening games but this match will surely be much tighter. The pair went to the break level in their Preliminary final last year before Souths surged to victory.
