For the first four rounds of the 2011 NRL season, Luxbet is offering $2 Lines. These odds will be available during the hour leading up to each game.
Usually Luxbet offers 1.91 odds on NRL handicap betting. Having 2.00 odds provides a great opportunity to test your betting skills when the odds are completely fair. Even if you pick and choose bets at random you would be expected to break even. For those who are new to betting, a line bet (also known as a handicap bet) is expected to have a 50% chance of winning. The bookmaker adds a set number of points to the underdog’s final score to create approximately even odds on each side. For example a current line bet on Penrith vs. Newcastle is Penrith (+3.5), Newcastle (-3.5) at 1.91 odds. So if Penrith wins by 4 or more points, the line bet on Penrith wins. If Newcastle loses by less than 4 points, the line bet on Newcastle wins.
To help you make your picks, our resident NRL expert Mike Wilson will be previewing each round of the NRL this season.
