Different Types Of Bets
There are many different kinds of bets that you can place not only on NRL games but also players, team and even scores. Getting to know these terms will help you to place your bets correctly.
Head To head
This is the most basic of wagers which can be placed on a game. This is simply who will win, with no embellishments.
There are a number of wagers which can be placed on the various scoring methods which may happen during a game. For instance, you can place a bet on who will win the next line out, or who will score the next try. A conversion wager is a bet on whether a try will be converted or not.
During Match Wagers
These are bets on what will happen during a match. These include scoring types such as a 40/20 kick or a field goal.
These are one of the most difficult types of wagers to place as it involves the difference between the two team’s scores. Margins can be placed at half time, at the 80th minute or at the end of the match. Some bookies offer better odds on margins than others. Having a look around to find the one that has the best odds for you is important.
NRL Futures Betting
Futures Betting is placing wagers on what will happen during the entire season, and what it’s outcome will be. Bets can be placed on things like the most losses and number of season wins. This, of course, is a long term wager, and the earlier you get your bets in the higher your winnings will be.
