NRL premiers North Queensland have been massive firmers with UBET to win this weekend’s Auckland Nines.
After they announced a star-studded squad – featuring the likes of Matt Bowen, Michael Morgan, Jason Taumalolo, James Tamou and Lachlan Coote – earlier this week, the Cowboys were crunched from $12 into $5.00 to take out the pre-season showpiece.
"They were a good price initially because they were never going to pick their biggest star and playmaker, Johnathan Thurston," said UBET Head of Product Gerard Daffy.
"Most punters initially thought they had no chance without him, but you only need to take one look at their squad to know the Cowboys will be contenders."
As it stands, the Warriors will start the tournament as well-backed $3.75 favourites, after being as much as $7.00 when markets first went up.
"The Warriors, with speedsters Shaun Johnson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck on board, look like they will be incredibly hard to beat," said Daffy.
UBET’s offering Money Back up to $25 on all single win bets, if your selection leads at halftime, but goes on to lose.
