Australian Gambling – He may have taken a huge leap of faith, but rugby league’s newest code hopper Jarryd Hayne will have his work cut out nailing down a spot in America’s National Football League.
Parramatta’s best player sensationally announced he would quit the club on Wednesday and our recommended online bookmakers took no time in framing markets around his big move.
Our men at Sportsbet.com.au reckon he is no certainty to make it onto the field.
The Hayne Plane is $11 to actually play a game by the end of 2016.
Sportsbet’s Shaun Anderson said, with Hayne having met with the reining NFL champion Seattle last month, the Seahawks have been set at $5 to be his team, with the Oakland Raiders given some chance at $7, ahead of the St Louis Rams ($9.50), Dallas Cowboys ($9.50), San Diego Chargers ($13) and the Houston Texans ($15).
You can get $2 about any other team in the league to pick him up.
“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and given the flood of early money we have taken on him to get a game, punters are tipping Hayne’s career will be a touchdown,” said Anderson said.
