7:55pm North Queensland Cowboys vs St George Dragons @ Country Bank Stadium
The North Queensland Cowboys got back to their best form with a convincing win over Gold Coast last week and we expect that form to continue.
They were dominant 32-6 winners against an inferior team, and although the Dragons are better, the Cowboys are a top three side.
Covering a 12.5 line is tough but we wouldn’t be backing the Dragons at this stage of the season.
Betting tip: North Queensland Cowboys –12.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Cowboys by 14
3:00pm Gold Coast Titans vs South Sydney Rabbitohs @ Cbus Super Stadium
We think the Gold Coast Titans are too short with bookmakers, especially considering their poor form.
They have been dreadful over the last few weeks and the Rabbitohs, despite struggling as well, are the much better team.
The $2.75 for the Titans is too short and we’re taking the Rabbitohs to get the job done.
Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs @ $1.45 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Rabbitohs by 6
5:30pm Sydney Roosters vs Melbourne Storm @ SCG
The Roosters had a golden chance to beat the Canberra Raiders last week but were unable to convert.
They now have to face a Melbourne Storm team who is keen on chasing down the Penrith Panthers at the top of the NRL ladder.
There will be some stiff bodies following Origin but we like the Storm in this spot and the –6.5 line is worth snapping up.
We expect a lot of money to come for the Storm on game day.
Betting tip: Melbourne Storm –6.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Storm by 10
7:35pm Brisbane Broncos vs Canberra Raiders @ Suncorp Stadium
We love what the Brisbane Broncos are doing this season and we’re not surprised by the confidence in betting markets.
They are filling a top four spot, and although the Raiders come off a good Round 13 win, they are tough to trust at the best of times.
Covering a 6.5-point spread isn’t easy but there is confidence with the Broncos and we’re not betting against them.
Betting tip: Brisbane Broncos –6.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Broncos by 8
2:00pm Wests Tigers vs Manly Sea Eagles @ Campbelltown Sports Stadium
The Manly Sea Eagles got back to their best against an awful Warriors side last week and it could spur them on.
It was a dominant performance from a team sitting in 10th position and we think they can continue on with that form against the Wests Tigers.
Punters get a favourable line at –4.5 and we think Daly Cherry-Evans could produce a great performance following Origin.
Betting tip: Manly Sea Eagles –4.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Sea Eagles by 10
4:05pm Newcastle Knights vs Penrith Panthers @ McDonald Jones Stadium
The Penrith Panthers are the best team in the competition and there are little doubts about that.
They have been putting the sword to most teams in the NRL and the Newcastle Knights are the next team likely to suffer the same fate.
Bookmakers have 14.5 points between them and we don’t think it’s enough points for the Knights to cover the spread.
Penrith should put on a clinic and rack up a huge score.
Betting tip: Penrith Panthers –14.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Panthers by 20
6:15pm New Zealand Warriors vs Cronulla Sharks @ Moreton Daily Stadium
The last time the Warriors played the Sharks, they were unable to win with a one-man advantage for most of the game.
It has been a shocking season for the New Zealand franchise, who appeared to have given up against the Sea Eagles last week.
Therefore, we’re taking the Sharks to score another easy victory. They have to cover a 12.5 margin but it shouldn’t prove difficult.
Betting tip: Cronulla Sharks –12.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
