In terms of betting on Rugby League, the Super League is the most popular competition to bet on. The 2011 Super League season kicks off with the Magic Weekend on the12th February at the Millennium Stadium. All of the bookmakers featured on the Betting Directory will cover the Super League and Challenge Cup whilst some will also offer betting on the National League's 1 and 2, plus matches from the NRL from Australia.
The Super League season kicks off in February and plays right through until the Grand Final in October, played at Old Trafford. Sky Sports have a briliant coverage of the sport with up to three live games featured each week. The BBC cover the Challenge Cup, which is a straight knockout competition with the final played at Wembley.
As well as the domestic competitions, there is the Rugby League World Cup every four years and the tournament provides an opportunity to have a bet on the best international teams and players.
If Rugby League is your game, we've highlighted the best Rugby League Free Bets when you open a new betting account via any of the bookmaker links on this site.
Rugby League Match Betting
Every Super league and Challenge Cup match will be available for you to bet on. Simply select which team you think will win the match. There will be an option to select the draw but this rarely happens in Rugby League.
Before the season starts it is the best time to get your outright ante-post bets on where Rugby League is concerned. Super League has a habit of throwing up the odd surprise act, like Hull KR in the 2009 season. We'll try and highlight which teams can possibly break the dominance of St Helens and Wigan.
Handicap betting is often a more popular tupe of bet than match betting. Becuase of the scoring in Rugby League, with tries, conversions, penalties and drop goals, bookmakers will give a handicap line against one of the teams to level up the betting. For example, Leeds could be -14 points when playing Warrington.
As with football betting, you can back a player to score a try in a rugby league match. It's a fun bet really which adds a bit of interest to the match.
Bet on Rugby League Live In-Running
With dozens of Rugby League matches televised every month, betting live in-running on Rugfby League is very popular, with all the above markets available whilst the match is in play plus many more. All of the bookmakers featured in the Betting Directory will offer markets in-running on Super League.
