Broncos Boosted to $2 to Beat Manly

Ladbrokes have boosted Brisbane's price to beat Manly to $2 ahead of their round 21 NRL clash in Gosford. The Broncos are aiming for a ninth straight win as they aim to do the double on the Sea Eagles after thrashing their opponents in round 13.

When South Sydney belted Brisbane 36-6 at Suncorp Stadium in the opening match of the NRL season, not even die hard Broncos fans could have envisioned where Wayne Bennett’s boys would be now. 2 points clear at the top of the table with one eye on the finals and the other on the Minor Premiership. In fact Brisbane are firm favourites to finish first at the end of the regular season, paying just $1.35 with Ladbrokes. They’re better value to win their Premiership though, on the second line of betting, behind the Roosters, at $4 to lift the trophy for the first time since 2006.

Brisbane Boosted to Beat Manly

The Broncos have lost just 3 times this year and head into Saturday’s match against Manly on the back of an 8 game winning streak. They’re around the $1.50 mark with the bookies to beat the Sea Eagles, but Ladbrokes have boosted Brisbane’s price to $2. Yep, you can get even money on them to defeat Manly in Gosford and notch up a ninth successive victory. As well as extra odds on Brisbane to win, Ladbrokes also have a promotion on their leading tryscorer this season. The bookmaker is offering $2.75 for Lachlan Maranta to score at least 1 try in a Broncos victory. So can the winger add to his 13 tries so far in another Brisbane triumph?

Stats to Scare Sea Eagles

The stats say Brisbane are the best attacking team in the competition and their offence was on song against Manly last time out. The Broncos battered the Sea Eagles 44-10 at Suncorp Stadium in round 13. The league leaders racked up another 34 points last weekend but their defence was just as impressive, as they kept Gold Coast from troubling the scoreboard. The visitors have won more than twice as many games as their opposition this season with Manly managing just 7 victories so far in 2015.

At the pumped up price of $2 will you back Brisbane to do the double on the Sea Eagles and take another step to claiming their first Minor Premiership in 15 years.
