They’re yet to taste premiership success but North Queensland are now title favourites on the back of 5 straight wins.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has brought the Cowboys into $6.00 equal favouritism alongside the out of form Roosters and Rabbitohs.
After beginning the season at $9.00, the Cowboys drifted to as much as $15 following three straight losses, but punters are back on board – only the Rabbitohs have received more money on them to win this year’s Grand Final.
“Punters refused to write North Queensland off after their terrible start to the season. They’ve been the best backed side to win the competition over the past fortnight and with the Roosters and Rabbitohs going backwards, they could be outright favourites after the next round,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
The Cowboys may have another reason to celebrate in 2015…..Johnathan Thurston has firmed from $4.00 to $3.00 to claim the Dally M Medal after collecting another 2 votes against the Knights.
