Brisbane Broncos Women favored to claim 2nd title according to our NRL Women 2019 betting predictions

Last year, the Brisbane Broncos made history by winning the inaugural NRL Women’s Premiership. Fortunately, the club stand a good chance on the online sportsbook sites in Australia to claim a 2nd title. They have favorable NRL Women 2019 betting odds at 2.75 to win making them a safe Bet365 Sportsbook bet. 

Additionally, the club have also undergone some exciting managerial and player changes that could prove beneficial in their title defending campaign. This includes new coach Kelvin Wright who previously coached the New Zealand Kiwi Ferns. Overall, the club have retained 12 players including 2018 Top Points Scorer Chelsea Baker and signed 10 players. 

However, the Brisbane Broncos have lost 6 players including the 2018 NRL Women’s Premiership Player of the Year Brittany Breayley. Nevertheless, with new signings and a new head coach, the club will likely continue to be NRL Women’s Premiership Powerhouses. 

St. George Illawarra Dragons Women to make amends for a disappointing 2018 NRLW season 

In the 2018 inaugural NRL Women’s season, St George Illawarra Dragons failed to make a good first impression. They finished the 2018 NRL Women’s Premiership at the bottom of the ladder with 1 win and 2 losses. Fortunately, they stand a considerable chance to bounce back with Bet365 Sportsbook NRL Women 2019 betting odds at 3.25

Additionally, it’s safe to say that the club have definitely been working on bettering their squad for the 2019 season. According to the online sportsbook news in Australia, the club made headlines signing 2018 Player of the Year Brittany Breayley. Other notable signings expected to make an impact at St. George Illawarra Dragons are Kimiora Nati, Ngatokotoru Arakua and more. 

Sydney Roosters Women unlikely to make consecutive NRLW Grand Final appearance 

Last year, the Sydney Rooster Women (3.50) had to settle for a respectable 2nd spot in the Premiership. This was a result of their 34-12 loss in the NRLW Grand Final against the Brisbane Broncos. Unfortunately, with their current NRL Women 2019 betting odds on Bet365 Sportsbook, they stand a small chance of winning. 

Additionally, the club have only retained less than half of the 2018 season squad losing several key players. Fortunately, they will still be with Taleena Simon who was the Top Try-Scorer in the 2018 NRL Women’s Premiership. 

Additionally, the club have also appointed new head coach Rick Stone who has an extensive international and national coaching experience. However introducing a new coaching style to any club also has the potential to go sideways. 

New Zealand Warriors Women unlikely to record 1st NRLW title this year 

According Bet365 Sportsbook, the New Zealand Warriors currently have the worst chance of being the 2019 NRLW Premiership champions. Consequently, with odds standing at 7.00, the New Zealand Warriors Women are a risky club to wager on. In 2018, they failed to make it to the Grand Final. Unfortunately, our NRL Women 2019 betting predictions foresee them suffering the same fate. 

However, the club’s head coach Luisa Avaiki has assured fans that the club have made significant improvements. She released a statement saying: 

“We just want to try and lift our standards and be competitive in all that we do, like we did last year it’s just this year getting a lot of support around our team.” 

If the club can perhaps deliver what they promised, they might just cause one of the biggest upsets this season.
