Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has taken a total of $35,000 on the Cowboys to win the premiership from one punter. $25,000 of the bet was placed at odds of $7.00 while the remaining $10,000 was at $6.00. They’ve firmed further to $5.50 as a result.
- Punter places $35,000 on Cowboys to win 2018 NRL Premiership
- More money bet on North Queensland than any other side
The punter in question will collect $235,000 if North Queensland can win the grand final.
Needless to say, the Cowboys are holding more money than any other side, with the Storm the second most popular.
“$35,000 on the Cowboys is a big bet at this stage of the year but they did make it to the grand final without Johnathan Thurston, so why can’t they win it with him back in the side?” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
