NRL Betting: Products and Resources

At Betfair, we want winners. Aided by a catalogue of information provided in the previous NRL Betting Strategies articles, you have a useful guide to utilise products and resources designed to help you BetSmart.

Developing an informed and reliable system to punt on an equalised and fickle competition like the NRL is difficult for anyone. The more assistance available, both fundamental and in-depth, the greater likelihood that we can bridge the gap between predictability and unpredictability.

We are determined to continue finding innovative and knowledgeable sources to grow our Betting Better pages and improve the educational service The Hub is here to provide.

Data Scientists

The Data Scientists take a purely statistical approach to predicting the outcome of every game in the NRL including the Final Series. The NRL Prediction Model uses a detailed mathematical system to identify value by comparing winning probability against the Market. Factors such as injuries and weather aren’t considered in the assessments but can be manually considered in your wagering to give you an added edge.

The Analysts

The Analysts comprise a team of industry professionals with expertise across all racing and sporting codes. A strong foundation of experience in researching, pricing and trading all facets of racing and sports has prompted the production of NRL Insights, an in-depth look at the form and trends of key matches each round of the NRL season, as well as State of Origin and Internationals.
