The many websites and applications which cater to betting on sport have continued to offer more options in terms of rugby league betting markets. Bookmaker websites always look to provide options when it comes to betting on the UK’s most popular sports but with things like football and horse racing, it’s been hard to compete, as they take up almost all of the focus in terms of sports you can actively bet on.
Some punters would claim that the betting markets for rugby league are extremely limited but there’s certainly enough scope to back any outcomes you’d expect from the sport. With less knowledge over the markets on offer for placing your own rugby league betting tips, it’s worth checking out what bets you can get behind, and which selections experienced bettors would typically tend to go for.
Betting on rugby league
It would be a lie to say that rugby league betting tips are as easy to find as with more popular sports like football and horse racing, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist at all. They’re certainly available on the TeamFA Rugby League section, which is always packed full of the latest rugby league odds and predictions. TeamFA are a website who always pride themselves in covering all sports for a wide range of different punters, so they’re worth checking out for all of your betting needs.
Traditional rugby league betting markets
As with practically all sports you can bet on, the match result will usually be the first market you’ll find when choosing a rugby league match that you want to bet on. The only time this isn’t the case is when the bookmaker puts Handicap Betting ahead of it. This is only ever due to the fact that one team will usually defeat the other by a high margin, making it more worthwhile to back by how many points a team will win, rather than merely backing which side will win.
Considering how frequently you’ll be able to back a handicap result, the rugby league odds won’t always be that overwhelming, with around evens being the price for a -12 points handicap. One way of extending your odds is through backing an even larger handicap. Alternative handicap markets are located below the match result and match handicap options, with the odds being higher based on by how many points you expect either side will win.
