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. 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.
