The standard NRL season wrapped up last week, which can only mean one thing: the 2010 NRL Finals! With the Top 8 solidified, this year’s NRL Finals are looking to be another can’t miss for both casual and die-hard NRL fans.
Round one will kick off with four 2010 NRL Finals matches. The Gold Coast Titans will take on the New Zealand Warriors to kick things off at Skilled Park on September 10. The Titans are not only going into this one with the home ground advantage, but they’re also the favourite to win at SportsBet. They had a fantastic finish to their season and will be one tough team to beat in this opening round of the 2010 NRL Finals.
Next up is the 2010 NRL Finals battle between the Wests Tigers and the Sydney Roosters. The Roosters will have the home ground advantage, but the higher ranked Tigers had an amazing season. The outcome of this game is a little less certain than others, which has certainly affected the odds. Both are even, sitting at 1.91 each at Sportsbet.
Saturday, September 9 will also see the Penrith Panthers taking on the Canberra Raiders. While the Raiders finished off the season on a high note (beating the Broncos and shutting them out of the NRL Finals for the first time in nearly 20 years), the Panthers have put on some amazing performances leading up to these 2010 NRL Finals. Penrith are listed as the 1.55 favourites.
The first round of the 2010 NRL Finals will finish off with a must see match between the Minor Premier St George Dragons and the Manly Sea Eagles. As the Dragons have been unstoppable all season long, and they have the home ground advantage, it seems impossible that they would lose this 2010 NRL Finals round to the lower ranked Sea Eagles. They are 1.16 favourites to win.
The 2010 NRL Finals kick off this Friday, September 3. Get to Sportsbet to check out the most generous odds available.
