Thursday 7/04/22

7:50pm Newcastle Knights vs Manly Sea Eagles @ McDonald Jones Stadium

Manly produced its best performance of the season when beating Canberra, but they lost Tommy Turbo in the process.

It’s a big loss for the Sea Eagles, who always seem to suffer untimely injuries. It’s something the Knights could pounce on, hence the close market.

Despite some inconsistent play, we’re going with the Knights to win at home.

Friday 8/04/22

6:00pm New Zealand Warriors vs North Queensland Cowboys @ Moreton Daily Stadium

We liked what we saw with the Warriors when beating the Broncos last week, so we’re sticking with them.

They didn’t make many errors and having Shaun Johnson back in the team was a bonus, so they’re good enough to handle the Cowboys.

North Queensland is the favourite, but we think bookmakers will take money for the Warriors.

7:55pm Brisbane Broncos vs Sydney Roosters @ Suncorp Stadium

The Broncos showed very little against the Warriors and we think that could be the case against the Roosters.

Sydney had a slow start to the season but looked much better last week. We expect the Roosters to improve as the season goes on and it could be the opposite for the Broncos.

Bookmakers have the line at 11.5 points, so take the Roosters to score a comfortable victory.

Betting tip: Sydney Roosters –11.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Picklebet

Saturday 9/04/22

3:00pm Canberra Raiders vs Melbourne Storm @ McDonalds Park

The Melbourne Storm produced the best performance of the season with a 44-0 win over the Canterbury Bulldogs.

It was one-way traffic from the outset and it put every other team on notice, which could be bad news for the Canberra Raiders.

It could be a long season for the Raiders, who struggle against the Storm. We expect the visitors to put on another clinic and score a comfortable win.

Betting tip: Melbourne Storm –12.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Picklebet

Storm by 16

5:30pm South Sydney Rabbitohs vs St George Dragons @ Accor Stadium

We had high hopes for the Dragons after a good start, but they have made their way to near the bottom of the table.

Even though the Rabbitohs aren’t anywhere near where they could be, we’re picking them to score an easy win over the Dragons.

There is too much firepower with the Rabbitohs and the confidence levels are low with the Dragons.

Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs –8.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Picklebet

7:35pm Gold Coast Titans vs Parramatta Eels @ Cbus Super Stadium

One of the more impressive teams have been the Parramatta Eels, who often get off to a good start.

They currently hold down third spot on the ladder and they’re heavily favoured to beat the Titans, who are on the outside looking in.

The Titans are a team that can produce the goods, but the Eels are playing too well and they should come into the Gold Coast and get it done.

Betting tip: Parramatta Eels –7.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Picklebet

Sunday 10/04/22

4:05pm Cronull3a Sharks vs Wests Tigers @ PointsBet Stadium

There is nothing good about the Wests Tigers and that’s why they’re the +17.5 underdogs against the Cronulla Sharks.

It’s a big line for the home team to cover, but it could become apparent quickly that the Tigers haven’t turned up.

They pushed the Titans close in an 8-6 loss, but it was a poor game and the Sharks looked better in their 18-0 win over the Knights.

Betting tip: Cronulla Sharks –17.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Picklebet

Sharks by 22

6:15pm Canterbury Bulldogs vs Penrith Panthers @ CommBank Stadium

The Bulldogs are another team that could be in for a long season after getting thrashed by the Melbourne Storm last week.

It was a poor display for a Bulldogs outfit that has some good players, but they’re not gelling as a team.

Penrith has started where it left off and another comfortable victory is in the offing. The Panthers should have too much class and score with ease.

Betting tip: Penrith Panthers –18.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Picklebet
