Betting on Australian Sports at Pinnacle

The two key Australian winter sports – AFL and NRL – are both approaching the business end of the seasons. Finals are looming which provides a betting bonanza for savvy sports betting punters.

Naturally when sports bettors think of betting on Australian Rules Football or Rugby League, they look towards the major Australian sports betting sites. However there are many reasons why Australian bettors should consider turning to Pinnacle Sports.

Despite being an internationally-owned sports book, Pinnacle Sports offer some of the best markets in the world for Australian sports.

Due to its size as one of the biggest sports betting sites in the world, Pinnacle Sports are able to offer low margins on their markets which means better odds for punters. According to Pinnacle, they offer a margin of just 2.5% on Money Lines and Handicap Betting, and 3.84% on Totals Betting on AFL and NRL, which compares to margins ranging from 5-6% at other Australian sportsbooks.

This means that punters are getting better odds on your bets. Instead of taking $1.89 for your line bets, you may get a price of $1.93 at Pinnacle Sports. Over the long term, those extra few percentage points can mean the difference between a winning and losing punter.

Another reason to bet on AFL and NRL at Pinnacle Sports is that you can enjoy huge betting limits, even if you are proven to be a winning punter.

Below is the standard limits table for Pinnacle, although this can vary game-to-game.


Handicap (AUD)

Money Line (AUD)

Totals (AUD)










If you want to bet even more, then it’s not a problem to make successive bets after a short period of time, up to the maximum limit.

Unlike other Australian sportsbooks, Pinnacle won’t restrict your betting if you’re a winner. In fact, they encourage winners as their business model is based on large volume and sharp punters help to shape their markets.

With the best odds, huge limits on AFL and NRL and a customer-friendly attitude towards winning punters, Pinnacle Sports really is a fantastic Australian sports betting site.
