Titans outsiders for home final

07/09/2009 04:18:39 PM Comments (0)

Gold Coast's impressive home record hasn't done enough to impress the bookmakers with Brisbane installed as favourites for the all-Queensland NRL qualifying final on Saturday night.

The Broncos, who finished the regular season in sixth following Sunday night's 22-10 win over Canberra, opened at $1.60 with the Titans $2.30 outsiders for the Skilled Park clash.

The Titans have been almost unbeatable at home in 2009, posting an impressive 11-1 record at Skilled Park with their only defeat being a 34-18 loss to North Queensland in round 21.

Gold Coast do however enter the finals in indifferent form, having been hammered 38-4 by Manly at Brookvale Oval on Saturday night in a match which had no impact on their final ladder position.

The Broncos on the other hand have won their last five games, their last defeat being the club-record 56-0 flogging at the hands of Canberra in round 21.

In other matches, Melbourne opened as slight favourites over Manly, while the Bulldogs' round 26 slip-up against the Wests Tigers has not altered the bookies' faith in them after they were also installed as favourites ahead of their match-up with Newcastle on Saturday night.

Predictably, minor premiers St George Illawarra opened shortest of the eight sides, the Dragons at $1.55 to beat Parramatta at $2.40.
