NRL Grand Final Betting Options

The number of betting options available to the NRL Grand Final are huge. Here is our guide to the most popular markets:

Win bet: this is as simple as it sounds and just requires you picking the correct winning team

Line bet: line or ‘spread’ betting requires punters to select the correct team after a points handicap has been issued by a bookmaker. For example, if Penrith is given +2.5 line against the Roosters, which has a -2.5 line, it means that the bookmakers believe that Penrith is 2.5 points behind the Roosters in betting. If Penrith loses by 2 points, they will COVER the line, but if they lose by 3 points, the Roosters have covered the 2.5 handicap given to their opponents. The line bet is a popular bookmaker tool to even out the betting and put each team on an even keel before a match starts.

Margin bet: In addition to the line bet, bookmakers will also offer punters a number of options to choose from when it comes to the winning team and winning margin. An example of a winning margin is to wager on a team to win within 1-12 points. The odds for this margin may be slightly above a simple win bet, offering punters more value if they believe it will be a low-scoring game.

First try: This market is exactly as advertised. If you can correctly select the first player to score a goal in a game, you’ll win. Odds for wingers are much shorter than centres defenders. The first try-scorer is an extremely-popular market for the NRL Grand Final.

Total Match Points: The total match points is a popular betting markets where the bookies set the margin at $1.90, and punters simply choose whether they believe they total points of the match will be over or under that amount.

Clive Churchill Medal: The Clive Churchill Medal rewards the player that stood above the rest and performed on the biggest stage in the game – the NRL Grand Final. The Clive Churchill goes to the best on ground in the finale and is voted on by a select group of media and ex-NRL players and champions.
