A mountain of support has come for the Bulldogs ahead of Friday night’s semi-final against the Sea Eagles, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reporting more than 4 times the money being placed on the Dogs.

Canterbury has firmed from $1.80 as a result of the plunge while Manly are friendless in betting – drifting from $2.00 out to $2.20.

The Doggies continue to be the big mover in premiership betting. Only a week ago they were a $41 chance, but a convincing win over the Storm now has them on the fourth line of betting at $7.50.

“Several punters had a lash at the Bulldogs at $41 and we’ve seen an avalanche of bets on Dessie’s boys ever since. They’ve easily been the best backed side since Sunday,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
