Friday night’s win over the Roosters has seen Manly take sole ownership of top spot in grand final betting with the Sea Eagles priced at $4.00 to take the title ahead of defending premiers the Roosters at $4.50.
“They’ve beaten the Roosters twice now this season so definitely deserve to have have top billing as far as the premiership is concerned. They opened the season at $8.00 and have been the most consistent team in the competition,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
The big movers have been North Queensland, who’ve come in from $41 to $23 on the back of their upset win over the Rabbitohs in Townsville.
