NRL Betting Strategies
Team performance history is really important. If you want to have good NRL betting odds you need to be up to date with current and recent performance of the NRL teams. Consider where they placed over the past few years, which top name players the teams have (and especially any recent transfers in this regard).
Very important is their most recent performance. When you are ready to place NRL bets, you should have watched at least the previous five matches for both teams, to have a good idea of strengths and weaknesses, and patterns that emerge in the play. Do they perform better under pressure? Are they stronger in the first or second half? Are there any young players who are getting their first few chances to play and are keen to make a name for themselves? These questions can help you hone your own intelligent rugby betting strategy.
Some of the most important positions to watch which can give you good betting ideas are the hookers, the props and the halfbacks. But of course, the way the team works together is ultimately more important. All of the ‘star’ positions cannot do their jobs without stellar support from the back and sides.
Super Rugby Betting Odds
One of the best ways to start betting online in the NRL is by starting wagering on just a small pool of the matches in the beginning of the season. As so many changes can occur season to season, it is better to start conservatively, giving yourself time to watch the most current form of the competing teams this season. Punters who rush in with too many futures bets before the season starts do stand a chance of losing a lot of their wagers.
Take a Look at Your Previous Bets
Most punters keep a record of their previous years bets, and many of the big online betting sites who offer NRL betting and other sports will also have an electronic history of your previous wagers. These can be invaluable as a strategy for certain sports formats, and NRL betting is one of them.
Look at which previous NRL bets you won and lost, and which ones cost you the most dearly. This will help develop your own NRL betting strategy based on fact. Furthermore, it has been proven that more often than not, past performance is the most reliable indicator of future performance.
