NRL Round 3 Tips

Panthers vs Broncos

Finally getting their shot at a rematch the Penrith Panthers and the Brisbane Broncos are facing off at BlueBet Stadium this week in the most anticipated game so far this season.

The last two games they played against each other were both won by the Panthers, however, the last time they met at BlueBet the Broncos won, so this will be an interesting game.

James Fishier-Harris is still out for the Panthers, while Adam Reynolds is still out for the Broncos.

In the last two weeks both the Broncos and the Panthers sit at a win and a loss each with the Panthers going to down the Storm and the Broncos falling to the Roosters both in the first round.

Overall we have two excellent teams that both deserve to win this week and both both easily snatch the win, considering the past two rounds the Panthers will likely win.

Betting Tip: Penrith Panthers

Suggested Bet: Panthers – Winning Margin 1-12 @ $2.70


Warriors vs Raiders

Heading offshore to the land of the long white cloud, the Raiders will be up against the Warriors in Christchurch in Round 3.

The New Zealand Warriors have lost both games this season, while the Raiders sit on the opposite end of the scale with two wins.

The Warriors are strong at home, and the bookies are in favour of a win this week aswell; however, the Raiders winning the last two games can’t be ignored.

All things taken into account the Warriors do have a better chance at winning this week, and with 4 of their last 5 games having a winning margin of less than 12 we should expect a close game.

Betting Tip: New Zealand Warriors

Suggested Bet: Warriors – Winning Margin 1-12


Roosters vs Rabbitohs

The Roosters and the Rabbitohs will be squaring up for Round 3 at Allianz Stadium with both teams desperate to get some points.

Unfortunately for the South Sydney Rabbitohs they are currently sitting on two losses and are the underdog for this game which puts them in a very precarious situation where they are facing the very real fact that they might get the hat trick and end up with three straight losses.

Its a tough one as these two teams usually play pretty tough against each other but we are sticking with the Roosters.

Betting Tip: Sydney Roosters

Suggested Bet: Roosters Head-to-Head


Bulldogs vs Titans

The Canterbury Bulldogs are gearing up to host the Gold Coast Titans at Belmore this Saturday following a tough loss against Cronulla. Despite their struggles, the Bulldogs are showing signs of resilience, notably with Liam Knight stepping in to bolster their front row.

The Titans, fresh from a bye and keen to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to the Dragons, welcome the return of Kieran Foran, adding much-needed experience to their lineup.

Both teams have had their share of ups and downs in recent matches, with the Bulldogs aiming to break a losing streak at Belmore while the Titans are looking to capitalise on their rest week.

Key players to watch include the Titans’ Phillip Sami, known for his try-scoring prowess against Canterbury, and the Bulldogs’ Blake Wilson, who has been a consistent threat in recent games.

While the Titans may hold a slight advantage with their rested squad and strategic changes, the Bulldogs’ determination and home-ground support could prove pivotal.

Follow the underdog at home; we’re going for the Titans.

Betting Tip: Gold Coast Titans

Suggested Bet: Titans – Winning Margin 1-12 @ @3.15


Dragons vs Cowboys

The St. George Illawarra Dragons are set to face the North Queensland Cowboys in a pivotal match at Jubilee Stadium this Saturday.

The Dragons are looking to rebound from a significant loss against the Dolphins, while the Cowboys aim to maintain their unbeaten streak after a narrow victory over the Knights.

Key lineup changes include Kulikefu Finefeuiaki stepping in for the injured Heilum Luki on the Cowboys’ side, and Jesse Marschke making his debut for the Dragons due to Jacob Liddle’s concussion.

The game’s dynamics are further heightened by player insights, with Kyle Feldt and Mikaele Ravalawa among the ones to watch, given their scoring prowess in specific matchups and venues.

Considering the Cowboys’ recent form against the Dragons and their performance as favourites, they enter as the frontrunners. However, the Dragons’ determination to turn their season around will make this a more difficult game than expected for the Cowboys.

Betting Tip: North Queensland Cowboys

Suggested Bet: Cowboys – Winning Margin 13+ @ 2.70


Wests Tigers vs Sharks

The Wests Tigers are eager to mark the beginning of the Benji Marshall era with a victory, hosting the undefeated Cronulla Sharks at Leichhardt Stadium.

Following a disappointing start against the Raiders, Marshall’s Tigers are keen for redemption, promoting Aidan Sezer to starting halfback and welcoming Justin Olam for his club debut in the centres.

Facing a Sharks team that has dominated this fixture with 10 wins in their last 11 encounters, the Tigers have their work cut out for them. Cronulla, maintaining a strong form with players like Ronaldo Mulitalo and Jesse Ramien consistently crossing for tries, are favorites heading into this match.

Despite the Sharks’ recent dominance over the Tigers, especially in away games, Wests Tigers’ strategic changes and the motivational boost of playing at their spiritual home provide a glimmer of hope. The Tigers are desperate to turn their fortune around, however, up against the Sharks? Not likely.

Betting Tip: Cronulla Sharks

Suggested Bet: Sharks – Winning Margin II 19+ Points @ $2.40


Eels vs Sea Eagles

The Parramatta Eels are set for a tough game against the Manly Sea Eagles this Sunday at CommBank Stadium.

With Manly kicking off the season in top form and Luke Brooks fitting in perfectly as their new five-eighth, they’re aiming to extend their winning streak.

The Eels, after a strong start against against the Bulldogs, are keen to leverage their recent good form against Manly despite a recent loss to the Panthers that puts them at 1-1 for the season.

The Eels have made strategic moves with Morgan Harper shifting to the wing for the injured Bailey Simonsson and Blaize Talagi debuting in the centres, while Manly’s lineup sees Raymond Tuaimalo Vaega stepping in for the sidelined Tommy Talau.

Both teams have players to watch, with Bryce Cartwright and Jaxson Paulo among those who have a knack for crossing the line in big games.

The Eels might be able to capitalise on their home field advantage this week, however were expecting a close one.

Betting Tip: Parramatta Eels

Suggested Bet: Eels – Winning Margin 1-12 @ $2.95


Knights vs Storm

The Newcastle Knights are gearing up to face the undefeated Melbourne Storm in what’s set to be a gripping Round 3 finale at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Last week saw both teams in nail-biting finishes, with the Knights narrowly missing a win against the Cowboys and the Storm securing a last-minute victory over the Warriors.

The Knights are bolstered by the return of co-captain Jayden Brailey but will miss Greg Marzhew for up to six weeks. Melbourne, facing the suspension of Jahrome Hughes, will rely on Tyran Wishart in the halves against the Knights.

This match has all the hallmarks of a classic, with Newcastle aiming to leverage their strong Sunday performance record against a Melbourne side that has consistently overcome the odds.

With key players on both sides ready to make their mark, this game should be one of the best games this week.

Betting Tip: Melbourne Storm

Suggested Bet: Melbourne Storm – Winning Margin II 19+ Points @ $9.25
