• Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente won its third Group race in a row last weekend paying a skinny $2.10 – no real surprise there. Scarily for the Wests Tigers though, their price to run last is nearing that figure after just one game of the 2014 season.

    After getting touched up by the Red V, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has wound the Tigers from $4.25 into $2.50 to add the wooden spoon to their trophy cabinet and punters haven’t missed them either, wagering three times more money on Robbie Farah’s men compared to any other side.

    With Tigers almost odds-on, it sees the Eels ($5.00), Raiders ($5.50) and Dragons ($7.00) put some breathing space between them and snaring the kitchen utensil.

    “The Eels copped the wrath of punters the last two years but they’ve jumped on the Tigers ship and are very confident it’ll sink,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.

    At the other end of the ladder, the Bunnies have firmed into outright favouritism at $4.75, ahead of the Roosters ($5.00), Storm ($7.00) and Manly ($9.00).

    The Bunnies ($1.48) are also flavour of the month in round two betting and despite facing Manly ($2.65), are the best backed side of the round by five lengths. In the all Queensland affair, punters are leaning towards the Cowboys ($1.75) against the Broncos ($2.08).
