The final wash-up of a round packed with nailbiting finishes has seen little major impact on markets as some of the favourites finally started getting over the line – albeit in less than convincing fashion, in most cases.
Manly did things the hard way against the Eels, as did the Roosters against the Broncos, and the Storm didn't have it all their own way against the Knights, whom they were expected to dispose of easily.
The big exception to the more predictable outcomes was the Friday night boilover when Wests Tigers proved far too good for the Rabbitohs.
Those two sides were very much at the opposite ends of premiership betting after Round 1 but that result has seen the Rabbitohs drift further, from $5 to $6 with Sportsbet.com.au.
The Tigers meanwhile continue their charge, in from $81 a fortnight ago to $51 last week and now $34 with the agency.
The Roosters have tightened even further, in from $4.50 last week to $3.80, following that come-from-behind win in Brisbane. The other teams saw little movement, with Parramatta, Gold Coast and Canberra sharing the bottom rung of premiership betting at $51.
In match betting the biggest movement has been on Friday night's Grand Final rematch between the Roosters and Sea Eagles, with punters backing the Roosters in to $1.48 from $1.60 and Manly drifting from $2.25 out to $2.60.
The in-form Tigers look good value in Wellington against the Warriors, with punters so far backing them in from $2.60 to $2.50.
