Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has seen a flood of support from punters, who believe the Knights will do Alex Mckinnon proud, with almost 4 times as much money on the Knights at $1.33 compared to the Titans who are priced at $3.35.
An incredible 95% of the money in line betting is on Newcastle, even though they’re giving away 9.0 start at $1.90, and three-quarters of the hold in margin betting is with the Knights to demolish the Titans by 13 points or more.
As a result, Newcastle’s price has firmed from $1.47 to $1.33, with the Gold Coast drifting from $2.65 to $3.35.
“This is one of the most one-sided betting games we’ve seen this season and it makes sense. The Knights will be treating this as their Grand Final,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
