After the spanking handed out to Melbourne Storm by the St. George Illawarra Dragons on Sunday, the “Big Red V” have leapfrogged Melbourne as NRL Premiership Betting favourites with Sportsbet following their commanding 34-14 win.
The Dragons were $5.00 before the game with the Storm paying $4.50, but have since swapped positions as the Dragons go into $4.50 favourites and Melbourne drift to $5.00.
Paul McGregor’s team have also firmed from $3.00 into $2.50 favourites to win the Minor Premiership.
“Red V supporters can truly start to believe after they defeated the current Premiers confidently at Jubilee Oval. In this form they’ll continue to shorten even further over the coming weeks,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
