Rugby League Betting with William Hill
Come and give William Hill rugby league betting a try. You can bet on tries, drop goals, winning distances and much more.
Our rugby league odds spread far and wide, from the more recognisable Super League and Challenge Cup to the Australian action from the National Super League.
Understanding the rugby Super League betting odds
The Super League consists of 12 teams, chiefly from locations in the north of England. However, there’s also the London Broncos and the Catalan Dragons, who call the Gilbert Brutus Stadium home, in Perpignon.
From a structure perspective, the Super League is initially played over 29 rounds of fixtures, with the team top of the standings at this point collecting the League Leaders Shield and the team propping up the table collecting the Wooden Spoon.
The top five finishers progress to the play-offs, who then compete in a unique set-up over three weeks, until two teams eventually qualify for the Super League Grand Final.
Obviously, these various formats and vast number of fixtures ensure regular rugby league betting odds are made available.
Here are some of the markets to look out for:
The leading rugby league betting market
It’s not uncommon to witness close to 60 betting markets being on offer for a rugby league game.
The most obvious are the 80-minute markets, which is where, put simply, a bet is placed on which team is predicted to be the winner of the match, or betting on the draw at even bigger rugby league odds if that takes your fancy.
How does rugby league handicap betting work?
Sometimes, betting on a team winning a particular match is not enough.
If the match appears to be especially one-sided, the expectation might be that not only will a specific team win, but that they’ll do some comfortably.
This is where rugby league handicap betting may prove especially valuable.
This market attempts to even out the odds, so that one team isn’t a dominant favourite and another a considerable outsider.
If there was a game where one rugby league club was a 1/5 favourite in the 80-minute market and the opponent a 4/1 outsider, the handicap line would likely be about 14 points. This means the outsider effectively gets a 14-point headstart for the purposes of your handicap bet.
Backing the favourite with -14 points may shorten their odds to something closer to 10/11 and the same for betting on the outsider with a +14 points handicap.
How to win betting on rugby league?
One potentially-lucrative bit of rugby league betting advice is to assess all of the live markets for a particular match.
It’s easy to dedicate all attention to the main markets, but some of the under-the-radar offerings may offer a better route to profit.
Among the other markets that could exist within any rugby league betting odds are what the first scoring play will be, whether a drop goal will be scored during the game, which team will be the first to register 10 points or which team will cross the whitewash for the final try.
Some rugby league combination-betting markets may additionally be available, boosting the chances to take advantage of bigger odds.
These could include picking the winner in a game in which both teams score 24 points or more, or whether a team will complete the treble of scoring the first points, lead at half time and winning the match.
Other rugby league betting tips to consider
Research is the number one weapon to have in the arsenal when looking to create rugby league betting tips.
This begins from a statistical perspective, including whether a team tend to be good or bad travellers ahead of their next away game, whether a team have previous for quick starts or slow finishes or whether they are in strong or dire recent form.
Research could also relate to assessing player availability ahead of their next match. A team missing their main scrum half and top tryscorer suddenly look a much weaker rugby league betting proposition. Such news could even tilt the scales in favour of an unfancied underdog.

Player markets within the rugby league betting odds
As you would expect, there are also numerous betting markets available relating to the players involved.
These begin in the match-betting offerings, with options to bet on the first tryscorer, anytime tryscorer or last tryscorer.
For a player bang in form playing against weak opposition, why not dabble in them scoring two or more tries or even going one further by registering a hat-trick?
Some positions are naturally more productive than others when it comes to scoring tries, but that doesn’t prevent such players from having a sizable impact on a game. This could be through accurate kicking, lung-bursting, line-breaking runs or a vast number of tackles.
Players with the attributes to impress in this fashion could be attractive candidates in any rugby league bets for man of the match.
When it comes to a more season-long player market, the Man of Steel accolade is awarded at the end-of-season dinner to the player of the year. Rugby league Man of Steel odds exist for those with an opinion on who is best positioned to gain this prize.
Domestic and international rugby league odds
It’s already been touched on that rugby league odds exist beyond the Super League.
This includes rugby league Challenge Cup betting odds, where amateur teams are permitted to take part in the opening round.
There are nine rounds in total including the final, with the stronger teams seeded so that they can enter at a later stage.
When it comes to rugby league in Australia, there’s no let-up in the number of markets on offer.
Bet on teams including the Penrith Panthers, Brisbane Broncos, Sydney Roosters and St George Illawarra Dragons as they compete to win the NRL Grand Final. Alternatively, there’s the option for teams securing a top-four or top-eight finish.
Don’t forget the State Of Origin series too, an annual three-game series between Queensland and New South Wales.
From an international standpoint, rugby league World Cup betting odds are available every four years, with Australia, New Zealand and England typically among the teams prone to making the final.
