Best Gold Coast Titans bets for NRL 2020
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 if you think there is the faintest chance Gold Coast could come from the clouds in 2020, the odds on offer for a Titans premiership do not reflect just how outlandish that prospect is.
- The vast majority of online bookmakers have Gold Coast as outright favourites for the wooden spoon, with the Canterbury Bulldogs and New Zealand Warriors their closest challengers. The Titans finished four games behind 15th place last year and appear destined to prop up the ladder again in 2020.
- If the Titans make any sort of move up the ladder this year, you can bet Ashley Taylor will have something to do with it. He is Gold Coast’s top prospect in the Dally M betting, ahead of Jai Arrow and AJ Brimson.
Gold Coast Titans players to watch in 2020
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 could open up bigger, better opportunities elsewhere.
Position: Second row
Cartwright’s first two seasons on the Gold Coast were littered with lowlights. The former Panther spent much of 2019 on the interchange bench, so it will be interesting to see whether or not he lines up on the second row come March.
Brimson was Gold Coast’s fix-it man in 2019, doing stints at five-eighth, halfback and the interchange either side of an extended spell at fullback. With Michael Gordon gone, we can expect to see AJ start the year in the no.1 jersey.

- 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.
