The Canterbury Bulldogs are now outright second favourite for the 2012 NRL Premiership after firming from $5.50 into $4.50 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Only the Melbourne Storm, who’ve eased from $3.75 out to $4.25, are at shorter odds, with Manly and the Rabbitohs sharing the third line of betting at $6.50.
As well as firming from $8.00 into $6.50 to win the competition, the Bunnies have also been backed from $1.80 into $1.55 to finish in the top four.
“The Storm remain the best backed side to win the premiership ahead of the Warriors, but punters are now taking the Bulldogs seriously,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
“There was a little interest early in the season for the Rabbitohs to make the top eight, but punters are now backing them to jag a top four spot.”
