NRL Round 3 Tips

Sea Eagles vs Eels

It’s Thursday night footy, and the Eels are hoping to rebound after a difficult start to the season.

They’ll face a tough battle in the high-flying Sea Eagles, who are sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard. But don’t count the Eels out just yet.

They’ve covered the line in their last four night matches as an underdog against Manly in Sydney, and have some key players in William Penisini and Maika Sivo who know how to find the tryline.

Manly may have beaten the Bulldogs by a large margin in Round 1, but they’ve lost seven of their previous eight games and have a habit of conceding points at home against Parramatta.

It’ll be a close one, but I’m picking the Eels to win 22-20.

Betting Tip: Eels

Suggested Bet: Eels Head-to-Head


Knights vs Dolphins

After losing numerous key players, the Knights will face a difficult match against the Dolphins.

While the Knights battled the Tigers last week, they won’t have the same firepower this week. The Dolphins, on the other hand, shown their tenacity by rallying from a 12-point hole against the Raiders, and they have a good team that can exploit the Knights’ flaws.

The Dolphins are poised for triumph with players like Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow and Kodi Nikorima in top form.

Anticipate a fast-paced game with lots of tries, with the Dolphins winning 28-16.

Betting Tip: Dolphins

Suggested Bet: Dolphins 13+


Roosters vs Rabbitohs

The Roosters are seeking to break a losing streak against the Rabbitohs, who have won five of the last six games between these two passionate rivals.

The return of Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Victor Radley will help the Roosters, but it won’t be enough to halt the Bunnies.

Souths have covered the line in five of their previous six games after a loss, and they will be desperate to rebound after a tight setback to the Panthers.

The Rabbitohs will be too powerful for the Roosters, with Latrell Mitchell in great form and Alex Johnston and Joseph-Aukuso Suaalii scoring tries for pleasure.

Prediction for the final score: Rabbitohs 24, Roosters 16.

Betting Tip: Rabbitohs

Suggested Bet: Rabbitohs Head-to-Head


Titans vs Storm

Melbourne Storm are taking against the Gold Coast Titans and the stats are in the Storm’s favour. They’ve won 28 of their last 29 games against Queensland teams, and the bookies put them as heavy favourites.

The away team has covered the line in 7 of Melbourne’s previous 8 games, and the total match points line has gone UNDER in 10 of their last 12 games.

AJ Brimson and Xavier Coates of the Gold Coast have been in terrific try-scoring form, but they’ll be up against a Storm defence that is tight.

The Storm have been slow to start recent games, but they are known to be excellent finishers.

We anticipate the Storm to win 26-14, with tries from Harry Grant and Josh Addo-Carr.

Betting Tip: Storm

Suggested Bet: Storm 1-12


Cowboys vs Warriors

Well, well, well, it appears that we have a one-sided contest on our hands!

New Zealand has now lost 13 consecutive matches in Australia, and the North Queensland Cowboys have won their previous four meetings with the Kiwis. It’s time for the Cowboys to put on a show, and with a big home-field advantage.

The Cowboys should take control of this game early on and the Warriors will spend the rest of the game trying to keep up. The Warriors have lost both halves in their last four away games, so I expect them to suffer once more.

My prediction is that the Cowboys will win convincingly, with the final score being 28-10 in their favour.

Betting Tip: Cowboys

Suggested Bet: Cowboys 13+


Broncos vs Dragons

It looks like we’re in for a nice old-fashioned rugby match between the Dragons and the Broncos.

The Dragons have lost 14 of their last 15 interstate encounters, while the Broncos have been strong at home, with 8 of their last 9 games at Suncorp Stadium going over the total match points line.

Also, the home team has covered the spread in 16 of the Dragons’ last 20 games. All signs point to a Broncos victory, and I believe they will cover the spread as well.

We predict a final score of Brisbane 28, St. George Illawarra 16.

Betting Tip: Broncos

Suggested Bet: Brisbane -11.5 / UNDER 42.5


Bulldogs vs Wests Tigers

So, folks, the Wests Tigers take on the Canterbury Bulldogs in what promises to be an epic barnburner.

While the Tigers have been inconsistent recently, winning only one of their previous 15 games, the Bulldogs have been more consistent. Nonetheless, I believe the Tigers have what it takes to pull off a surprise.

The Tigers are the underdogs with a line of +10.5, but if they play to their full capacity, they should comfortably cover the spread.

With the total match points line set at 41.5, I’m forecasting a low-scoring game, so don’t expect a try-fest.

The Bulldogs have failed to cover the line in eight of their last nine games at Belmore Sports Ground, so let’s hope the Tigers capitalise.

We predict the Wests Tigers to win 18-16.

Betting Tip: Wests Tigers

Suggested Bet: Wests Tigers +10.5 / UNDER 41.5


Raiders vs Sharks

Mate, this one’s a tough call. Canberra has been on a bit of a losing streak, but they’ve got an impressive record against Cronulla.

On the other hand, Cronulla has been scoring a lot of points lately. But you know what they say, “Defense wins games”.

We reckon Canberra will pull out all the stops to break their losing streak and come out on top.

Place your bets on the Canberra Raiders to win at 2.30 odds and take Canberra to cover the line (+3.5) at 1.90.

Expect a high-scoring match with the total points going OVER 43.5 at 1.90 odds.

Final score prediction: Canberra 24 – Cronulla 18.

Betting Tip: Raiders

Suggested Bet: Raiders +3.5 / UNDER 43.5
