Chris Anderson and former Bulldogs coach Kevin Moore have been installed at $11, with former Raiders and Panthers coach Matthew Elliot priced at $13.
“Ricky has shown he has what it takes and his stocks have risen significantly since he’s been in charge of the Blues, so we’ve got him as the favourite,” Sportsbet’s Ben Hawes said.
Mal Meninga ($51), Peter Sterling ($101) and Nathan Hindmarsh ($101) are the outsiders in the market.
