Best Gold Coast Titans bets for NRL 2019
There are dozens of NRL futures markets for the Titans, but where are they likely to return some real value?
Click on the tabs below to get more analysis on these markets:
- Nope. Even you think there is the faintest chance Gold Coast could come from the clouds in 2019, the odds on offer for a Titans premiership do not reflect just how outlandish that prospect is.
- This is where you might find some joy. Of the 16 teams in the NRL, only Canterbury Bulldogs are rated a better chance to take home the wooden spoon. Manly, Parra and Wests could provide stiff competition, but the Titans look as good (or as bad) a bet as any.
- Ashley Taylor came home with a wet sail to finish 2018 with 19 goals, 17 assists and three tries. He and his halves partner, AJ Brimson, are the two to look at in this year’s Dally M betting markets.

Gold Coast Titans players to watch in 2019
Gold Coast’s struggles are something of a blessing for Taylor, who is already well on the way to becoming one of the NRL’s most potent playmakers. Another solid season in southern Queensland could open up bigger, better opportunities elsewhere.
Position: Second row
Cartwright’s first season on the Gold Coast was littered with lowlights, including a mid-season demotion to the reserves and a broken hand that ruled him out for several weeks. Titans fans will expect much more from the former Panther in 2019.
Brimson burst onto the scene last year with a string of fine performances in the halves before filling in at fullback late in the season. With new recruit Tyrone Peachey eyeing off the five-eighth role, AJ’s versatility could prove invaluable.

- Several sporting codes had tried and failed to corner the elusive Gold Coast market by the time the Titans came to be in 2007. One such venture was the NSWRL’s Gold Coast-Tweed Giants, which then became the Seagulls, and then the Chargers, and then folded in 1998.
Unlike other football codes, rugby league enjoys a strong following in the south-east Queensland and north-east New South Wales. Hence, it took only a few years for momentum to gather behind a new bid for a Gold Coast in the NRL. Within 10 years of the Chargers dropping out, the Titans were in.
The early signs at Robina Stadium were rather positive. Coach John Cartwright steered the team into the top four in 2009 and again in 2010, but then came the wooden spoon of 2011, the five years without finals, the appointment of Neil Henry in 2015 and his axing two years later. Now the pressure is on the Titans to start delivering, lest they face the same fate as the previous Gold Coast franchise.
