Standard Season –
The NRL’s standard or regular season is composed of 26 rounds, one round per week with eight games per round, with team match ups decided in advance via the NRL draw. 8 Matches are usually held each week, with 2 on Friday, 3 on Saturday, 2 on Sunday and 1 on Monday night.
An exception to this game format is around State of Origin time, when split rounds are held either side of the tournament. During the 26 week regular season, there are 192 chances to bet on Australia’s leading football competition, 192 chances to make money off your predictions! The season is all about seeking out the top eight teams to compete in the finals, and those teams to make the playoffs are the ones who amass the most wins and competition points.
A good betting opportunity before the finals is for the minor premiers, which is the team ranked the highest on the ladder at the end of the first 26 rounds. Punters betting on the minor premiership winner check the NRL ladder and results each week to see how their chances currently stand.
Finals time! Here is when the competition and betting markets for the NRL really start to heat up! The top eight teams on the ladder after the regular season are now revved up and ready to give everything they’ve got to make and play in the Grand Final match. The betting prize pools for NRL finals matches are much larger than those earlier in the season.
