The NRL updates the Dally M Leader Board after every. single. round. But then, the doors suddenly close, and votes are made private. You can only start punting on the Dally M Odds after the first 12 rounds, (when the votes become private), as you get some hot value and you have more of an idea of who will take home the prestigious award.
Every Aussie Bookie offering a punting service should offer Dally M Odds Promotions. This is due to the fact that the public are unable to access the votes up until round 12 of the season, so it’s unlikely there will be any Dally M promos until then. As soon as the voting is kept under lock and key – expect promotions galore.
The Dally M Medal voting is, as previously stated, made public up until round 12, which means other than an ‘outright winner’ market, punters don’t have too many options when it comes to actually betting on the individual award. Once voting is no longer made public, more markets tend to rear their head. Punters then have the ability to place bets on the outright winner, who will top the voting for a specific club, and who will be at the top of the field for a certain point during the night.
Punters have a great indicator of the Dally M Medal odds based on the leader board in the first 12 rounds. But, as soon as those votes go private, you’re going to need to do your own detective work to figure out the final winner. There are usually only a few players quoted at single-figure odds by the final few rounds, and these are usually the live chances for the Dally M Medal. If you want to gain the best odds, value, and pay-out, look out for the following:
Look, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that you can never watch a game of Rugby League and still pick the Dally M Medal winner with the right stats. You can’t. There’s always players who are pipped at the post, so to speak, and it can be hard to determine who is ultimately the league’s best player. But, the results of the Dally M Medal can be predictable, and there are definitely certain trends for punters to follow and factor into their betting.
Any player has the ability to win the Dally M Medal. That’s just a fact. But, if you’re going to have any indication of who the main contenders will be after round 12 when the voting closes, just look for the ones who were in the lead to begin with! Rarely does a player pop up out of nowhere in the final half of the NRL Season to snag the Dally M Medal from right under everyone’s nose. The Dally M Medal has major contenders from day ditto, no rogue player is going to change that.
As well as being apparent who the front runners are early in the voting process, the Dally M Medal is also an award that players have taken out multiple times. Case in point, Jonathan Thurston, Cameron Smith, Jarryd Hayne and Cooper Cronk. The last two decades have seen all of these boys take home the Dally M Medal more than once, highlighting the fact it truly is the superstar’s award.
The Dally M odds fluctuate so dramatically from week-to-week, depending on form, injuries, suspensions and results from any given game that features a contender. Keep a constant eye on the Dally M Market, and make sure to use the tips from above to take into account a winner.
