NRL Round 5 Tips

Storm vs Broncos

Thursday, April 4, 2024

8:00 PM @ AAMI Park

At AAMI Park this Thursday, the Melbourne Storm gear up to host the Brisbane Broncos in a night set to add another excellent chapter to the season.

With both sides coming off notable games—Melbourne’s rest after a loss and Brisbane’s statement win—the return of Storm’s key players, Munster, Hughes, and Welch, spells trouble for Brisbane.

Despite Brisbane breaking a 14-match losing streak against Melbourne last year, the Storm’s formidable record at AAMI Park and their knack for dominating Brisbane suggests they’re favourites.

Expect a tough game, but Melbourne’s strong lineup hints at them maintaining their home turf supremacy.

Betting Tip: Melbourne Storm

Suggested Bet: Storm to Win by 1-12 @ $2.10 with Ladbrokes



Bulldogs vs Roosters

Friday, April 5, 2024

6:00 PM @ Accor Stadium

At Accor Stadium this Friday, the Bulldogs are underdogs against the Roosters, both chasing a loss in their last games.

Despite the Roosters falling short against the Panthers, they remain a super-strong team, boasting nine wins from their last ten against Canterbury.

With both teams adjusting line-ups due to injuries and strategy, Sydney’s track record and Canterbury’s struggle for consistency hint at another Roosters win.

Yet, the Bulldogs’ fight against the Rabbitohs suggests they won’t go down without a battle, aiming to upset the odds in a clash where history leans heavily towards Sydney.

Betting Tip: Sydney Roosters

Suggested Bet: Roosters to Win by 1-12 @ $2.75 with Ladbrokes



Knights vs Dragons

Friday, April 5, 2024

8:00 PM @ McDonald Jones Stadium

The Newcastle Knights are gearing up to host St. George Illawarra Dragons, seeking to overturn a shaky 1-3 start.

Despite the Knights’ strong home form, the Dragons boast an impressive record at McDonald Jones Stadium and evened their 2024 campaign with a recent win over Sea Eagles.

With Newcastle shaking up their halves and welcoming key players back, the game sets the stage for a top game this weekend.

The Dragons’ knack for covering the line as underdogs adds intrigue, suggesting a tightly contested match under the Friday night lights.

But all in all the Knights should have the gumption to take the win this week.

Betting Tip: Newcastle Knights

Suggested Bet: Knights to Win by 13+ @ $2.80 with Ladbrokes



Rabbitohs vs Warriors

Saturday, April 6, 2024

3:00 PM @ Accor Stadium

The South Sydney Rabbitohs, fresh off their first win, face the New Zealand Warriors who are riding a two-game winning streak.

Despite historical struggles, the Warriors have momentum and a robust record against the Rabbitohs, winning their past eight encounters with them.

The Warriors, with Nicoll-Klokstad’s return, aim to maintain their winning ways against a Rabbitohs side desperate to build on recent success.

Expect a high-scoring game, but with the Rabbitohs shaky start to the year and the Warriors winning the past 8 games between these two, we will be seeing a Warriors win this week.

Betting Tip: New Zealand Warriors

Suggested Bet: Warriors to Win by 13+ @ 3.90 with Ladbrokes



Sea Eagles vs Panthers

Saturday, April 6, 2024

5:30 PM @ 4 Pines Park

At 4 Pines Park, the Manly Sea Eagles are set to honour Daly Cherry-Evans’ record-breaking 310th club game against the Penrith Panthers.

Despite Manly’s recent form dip and Penrith’s three consecutive wins, the Panthers have dominated past encounters, winning their last eight against Manly.

With the Panthers’ line-up strengthened by Fisher-Harris returning and Manly remaining unchanged after a loss to the Dragons, Penrith’s superior form and head-to-head record make them the clear favourites.

Expect the Panthers to extend their winning streak this week against Manly.

Betting Tip: Penrith Panthers

Suggested Bet: Panthers to Win by 13+ @ $3.60 with Ladbrokes



Dolphins vs Wests Tigers

Saturday, April 6, 2024

7:35 PM @ Suncorp Stadium

The Dolphins, sitting atop the ladder after a surprising turnaround, host the Wests Tigers in a clash that’s unexpectedly a top-six battle at Suncorp Stadium.

Both teams ride on the momentum of two consecutive wins, but the Tigers face the challenge of overcoming a dismal 2-9 record in Queensland.

With strategic changes due to suspensions, including Ray Stone starting for the Dolphins, the match promises intensity.

Let’s not kid ourselves here, the Dolphins and the Tigers are only in the top 6 at the moment because they both have had a bye already this season and after this week the Tigers are expected to drop significantly.

Given the Dolphins’ strong form and the Tigers’ poor away record, expect the Dolphins to extend their winning streak this week.

Betting Tip: Redcliffe Dolphins

Suggested Bet: Dolphins to Win by 1-12 @ $2.80 with Ladbrokes



Cowboys vs Titans

Sunday, April 7, 2024

4:05 PM @ Queensland Country Bank Stadium

The North Queensland Cowboys are looking for a strong rebound at home against the struggling Gold Coast Titans after a tough loss to the Broncos.

Holding a dominant home record over the Titans and facing a team at the bottom, the Cowboys’ unchanged lineup looks set to exploit Gold Coast’s recent form.

With the Titans making adjustments and seeking improvement, especially from David Fifita, the odds heavily favour a Cowboys victory.

Given the historical head-to-head and current form, expect the Cowboys to get the win at Queensland Country Bank Stadium.

Betting Tip: North Queensland Cowboys

Suggested Bet: Cowboys to Win by 1-12 @ $3.40 with Ladbrokes



Raiders vs Eels

Sunday, April 7, 2024

6:15 PM @ GIO Stadium

In a closely matched contest at GIO Stadium, the Canberra Raiders host the Parramatta Eels, both looking to bounce back after recent losses.

With both teams at a 2-2 record and coming off Easter weekend disappointments, theyre both pretty keen to bump themselves up the ladder.

The Eels, having a knack for overcoming teams on a losing streak, and with a strong away game scoring record, are slight favourites despite the Raiders’ early lead potential.

Considering Parramatta’s historical edge and Canberra’s line struggles, expect the Eels to edge out a win.

Betting Tip: Parramatta Eels

Suggested Bet: Eels to Win by 1-12 @ $3.15 with Ladbrokes
