Basking in a fourth straight NRL Grand Final, the Melbourne Storm has made the early move with leading bookmaker Centrebet, firming in from an opening $1.65 into $1.62, despite Parramatta star Jarryd Hayne getting the “green light” to play in Sunday’s showdown!

Centrebet media chief Neil Evans said the “early position” was with the Storm, but he wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see the betting wheel turn as the week wore on!

“We believe the Storm have had a nice fresh passage through to the Grand Final – thumping both Manly and the Broncos at home, and there’s no doubt their experience will go a long way to squeezing the life out of the Eels,” he said.

But Evans added the overwhelming motivation for the Storm was the fear of being remembered as a dominant generational club who took home only one golden prize from four attempts! “In much the same way Geelong did not want the pain of a single premiership from three dominant seasons, the Storm will be thinking the same!”

“Against that, though, Parramatta is the fairytale team chasing a slice of history from eighth place, and they will have the baulk of a huge crowd cheering their every move!”

Centrebet has set the Game Line at just four points, believing it will be a tight showdown, while the Eels by a 1-12 margin has opened a very attractive $3.80! The Storm is $3.05 to win by a similar swing, or $3.15 to win comfortably by 13+!

Punters riding the Eels wave are cashed up after the tense come-from-behind win over the Bulldogs, after “live” clients plunged in the run! Bets included $25,000.00 at $1.97 (down 6-0), and two of $15,000.00 and $10,000.00 at $2.05 (HT)!

And the new “Will There Be a 40/20 Kick” is proving incredibly popular, with nearly $200,000.00 traded in this match! For the Grand Final, Yes has opened $3.15 and No $1.33!

Melbourne is odds-on to do the big double at ANZ Stadium, with the Storm’s Under 20s opening $1.45 favourite against Wests Tigers ($2.70) in the Toyota Cup GF! Centrebet is fielding a record number of markets for Rugby League’s big day!
