Despite more than 4 times the money going on Greg Inglis to win the Clive Churchill medal compared to the second best backed Sam Burgess, the Englishman has taken over favouritism from Inglis at $3.75, with GI now priced at $4.50 to claim the Grand Final man of the match award.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reports strong support for the other pommy in the game – James Graham, who’s come in to the third line of betting at $9.00.
Rabbitohs second-rower Ben Te’o has firmed from $34 to $21 following his promotion to the starting line-up.
“Punters believe that if the Bunnies are going to win the match, Sam Burgess will be playing the biggest role. The same can be said for fellow Englishman James Graham as far as the Bulldogs are concerned,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
Canterbury have come in to $3.15 from their original quote of $3.50, forcing South Sydney’s odds out to $1.38.
