One customer with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has placed $50,000 on Australia to win Saturday night’s Rugby League World Cup Final against England.

$30,000 of the wager was at odds of $1.12, with another $20,000 at $1.14.

A win for the Kangaroos will result in a total collect of $56,500, or $6,500 profit.

Two separate $10,000 bets have also been placed on Australia at $1.14. In comparison, the largest stake on England is a mere $200 at $6.70.

“I think the punter looked at Australia’s odds of $1.14 and thought that it was better than bank interest, so they’ve gone and had a real crack. We’re expecting to pay that bet as a winner,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
