SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – The National Rugby League (NRL) returns to betting menus globally as the Brisbane Broncos (2-1) take on the Sydney Roosters (1-2) in a clash of two teams trying to get into the top half of the NRL ladder.
This matchup will kick off the second week of games for the NRL after successfully restarting the league after suspending play due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Until then legal sports betting on rugby is one of the most popular ways to still bet on sports in the meantime.
The Sydney Roosters are 10-point favorites to beat the Brisbane Broncos in what will be the first matchup between these teams this season.
The Roosters are favorited despite the Broncos having a game on top of them in the standings.
The money line odds reflect the huge gap in the spread but the +320 underdog odds on Brisbane to pull off the upset Tuesday are worth the dice roll.
This game will be much closer than the odds reflect and taking the straight-up odds on Brisbane to win is well worth the risk.
If not wanting to bet on the final outcome of the game, consider taking Brisbane’s first half money line odds at +180. The Roosters money line odds sit at -400 and their odds to take a lead into halftime are at -220.
At online sports betting sites, the over-under for this game set at 37.5 points.
Take the Over as the Broncos defense has conceded 73 points to opponents through three games.
