There are plenty of ways to bet on the NRL, with hundreds of pre-match and in-play opportunities at LeoVegas!
Here are some examples of the main betting markets in the NRL, and how you can place your Rugby League wagers on them!
Bet on the player you think will cross the line first, last, or at any point in the match. The odds vary - first and last try scorer markets tend to be better-priced than anytime selections because they are harder to predict.
Bet on the number of points scored in a single match. Our sports traders will usually earmark a line (the total points amount) and the player can bet on the final result amounting to over or under that total.
A simple bet - punt on which team you think will get the job done! You can bet on either the home team or the away team. There are no ties in Rugby League - instead, a five-minute extra time period determines the match winner.
Whether you think a match will be a turgid, low-scoring affair or an exciting fast-paced try-fest, the Total Tries market represents the best opportunity to back your beliefs!
Bet on any match event - including whether a team will win both halves, the first team to score, and the type of first scoring play.
