Gold Coast Least Liked NRL Team in 2016

The rough week (and year) for the Gold Coast Titans continues, with bookmaker William Hill officially confirming the club are officially the punters least liked team for 2016.


The boys from the Glitter Strip hold less than 0.001% on the book to take out the NRL title, but a massive 97% of clients have backed them to suffer the most defeats.


The news of James Roberts’ decision to walk away from the embattled club has seen the Titans odds shorten to $3.00 to incur the most losses in 2015 (was $3.50).


"You’re not supposed to kick anyone while their down, but these figures show the punters certainly aren’t pulling any punches during pre-season,” said William Hill spokesman Tim Ashworth.


“At $101 for the title, it’s going to take an almighty turnaround in fortunes before the season kicks off to get the punters back on board.”
