NRL Betting Tips Round 2

NRL Round 2 Tips

Panthers vs Rabbitohs

Penrith Panthers are fired up to avenge a shocking Round 1 setback. They are the clear favourites to win after winning nine of their last ten games against the South Sydney Rabbitohs. The Bunnies may have won their first game, but injuries to key players could cost them.

In addition, Penrith has covered the line in each of their last four games following a loss.

The Panthers should win handily with Stephen Crichton and Spencer Leniu scoring tries against South Sydney and Brian To’o in fine form. Panthers 24-12 Rabbitohs.

We’re predicting Panthers 24-8 Rabbitohs.

Betting Tip: Panthers

Suggested Bet: Panthers 13+


Eels vs Sharks

Both the Eels and the Sharks are hungry for victory, but We believe the Eels will prevail. The Eels are looking strong with only one change to their lineup and the return of Sean Russell. Also, they haven’t begun 0-2 since 2018, so they’ll be desperate to escape that fate. The Sharks are missing a number of key players, including their Dally M medal winner, and have lost six of their last eight night games against Parramatta.

Don’t be deceived by the Sharks’ favourable line. The Eels will dominate and win by a score of ten points.

Our prediction is Eels 22-12 Sharks.

Betting Tip: Eels

Suggested Bet: Eels 1-12


Broncos vs Cowboys

This game is going to be a ripper! The Cowboys are set to crush the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium. The hosts had a lucky win last week, but they won’t be so lucky this time. The Cowboys have won four of their previous five meetings with the Broncos, and with Murray Taulagi scoring tries like it’s his job, they’ll take this one.

Another thing to take into consideration is that the Broncos are also having trouble covering the line at home.

The Cowboys will triumph by a score of 24-16. Get your beers and pies ready, because this is going to be a classic!

Betting Tip: Cowboys

Suggested Bet: Cowboys Head-to-Head


Roosters vs Warriors

After a disheartening setback last week, the Roosters will be eager to break open the Warriors on Sunday. The Roosters will be too strong for the Warriors, who have not won in Australia in a considerable time, with home advantage and Joseph Manu back in action.

Sydney is expected to cover the line and score a lot of points, with Daniel Tupou continuing his try-scoring ways.

Roosters 28-14 Warriors should be the final score.

Betting Tip: Roosters

Suggested Bet: Roosters +13


Dolphins vs Raiders

The Dolphins stunned everyone with a shocking upset over the Roosters in Round 1, and they’re trying to do it again against the Raiders. They’re playing at home for the first time, led by the outstanding Jamayne Isaako, and hoping to prove their sceptics wrong. The Raiders are the favourites, but they may struggle to stay up with the Dolphins without Jordan Rapana. Connelly Lemuelu and Jamal Fogarty are equally as deadly as Hudson Young and Sebastian Kris.

The game will be close, but the Dolphins will pull off another upset and win by four points.

The final score should be a close on in favour of the Dolphins 22, Raiders 18.

Betting Tip: Dolphins

Suggested Bet: Dolphins Head-to-Head


Storm vs Bulldogs

The Bulldogs may have had a rocky start to the season, but when they face the Storm, they’ll need to be tougher than the two-dollar steak they dished up last week! Melbourne has been on a roll, winning their past seven games against Canterbury and dominating recent matchups by nearly 33 points on average.

The Bulldogs may fancy their chances without Cameron Munster, but Tyran Wishart is a more than capable replacement, and the Storm are a well-oiled machine.

To stay under the 7.5-point spread (which we can’t see happening), the Bulldogs will need to bring their A-game.

The Storm’s defence is strong, so don’t expect the Bulldogs to score many points.

Storm 28, Bulldogs 10 is the expected final score.

Betting Tip: Storm

Suggested Bet: Storm 13+


Wests Tigers vs Knights

This Sunday’s match between the Wests Tigers and Newcastle Knights at Leichhardt Oval will be a tough one. Following dismal beginnings to the season, both teams are hungry for a victory. But, with Dane Gagai recovering from injury and their recent record against the Tigers, the Knights hold a little advantage.

Despite their home edge, the Tigers have lost their last eight games in Leichhardt, so they’ll need to step up if they want to win. Daine Laurie is expected to extend his try-scoring streak at home, but Kalyn Ponga will be a nuisance for the Tigers’ defence.

It’ll be a high-scoring affair, with the total points exceeding 42.5.

In a close game, we anticipate the Knights to win 28-24.

Betting Tip: Knights

Suggested Bet: Knights Head-to-Head


Dragons vs Titans

The Dragons are on a roll, having covered the line in nine of their past ten home games. They are unbeatable at home, having won 18 of their last 21 games.

Gold Coast will struggle to keep up with the Dragons, especially with Mathew Feagai of St. George Illawarra scoring in each of their last three night encounters.

Meanwhile, AJ Brimson and Moses Suli have been working hard for the Titans, but they won’t be able to compete with the Dragons’ power.

Anticipate a low-scoring, tight game, with St. George Illawarra winning with a final score of 20-12.

Betting Tip: Dragons

Suggested Bet: Dragons Head-to-Head
