NRL Round 6 Footy Tips

Knights vs Roosters

Thursday, April 11, 2024

7:50 PM @ McDonald Jones Stadium

The Newcastle Knights host a Sydney Roosters side licking its wounds, making this Thursday night clash at McDonald Jones Stadium a key opportunity for the Knights.

Coming off a solid win against the Dragons, the Knights seem to have found their rhythm, sitting at 2-3 for the season. The Roosters, despite a second-half rally, couldn’t claw back from a 26-point halftime deficit against their last opponents, compounded by the loss of key players James Tedesco and Sam Walker to concussions.

Recent matchups have been a mixed bag, with the Roosters traditionally holding the upper hand, but the last five encounters have shown both teams can win on the day.
However, the Roosters’ current injury toll, including Tedesco and Walker’s absence, severely impacts their backline structure and playmaking abilities.

Considering the Roosters’ depleted lineup and the Knights’ consistent selection, coupled with the advantage of playing at home, Newcastle is in a prime position to capitalise. Their ability to navigate adverse weather conditions and maintain a stable lineup gives them the edge.

The Knights are set to take the win, exploiting the Roosters’ vulnerabilities and moving up the ladder.

Betting Tip: Newcastle Knights

Suggested Bet: Knights to Win by 1-12 @ $2.75 with Neds

 

Storm vs Bulldogs

Friday, April 12, 2024

6:00 PM @ AAMI Park

The Canterbury Bulldogs, aiming for their third win in four, face a stern test against the Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park.

The Bulldogs were on full display last week, holding off the Roosters despite a challenging second half. Their previous win over Melbourne at AAMI Park bolsters their confidence. However, Melbourne’s recent narrow victory, despite defensive concerns, shows they’re a super strong team this year, especially at home.

Injury updates play a critical role in this match-up.

Canterbury’s lineup reshuffles, notably with Josh Addo-Carr’s return, could inject some speed into the game.

Melbourne’s relatively stable lineup, with a singular change, suggests continuity.
Looking at the head-to-head stats, while Melbourne has dominated past encounters, Canterbury’s upset last year indicates their potential to surprise fans.

Melbourne’s consistency and strategic depth under Bellamy’s guidance should see them maintain their stronghold at AAMI Park.

Betting Tip: Melbourne Storm

Suggested Bet: Storm to Win by 13+ @ $1.50 with Neds

 

 

Broncos vs Dolphins

Friday, April 12, 2024

8:00 PM @ Suncorp Stadium

The Brisbane Broncos are set to clash with the Dolphins in a keenly anticipated South Queensland rivalry match at Suncorp Stadium, aiming to maintain their dominance over the league newcomers.

With both teams showing form, the Broncos look to rebound from a narrow defeat to the Storm, while the Dolphins ride high on a three-match winning streak, leading the ladder.

Injuries could play a pivotal role, with the Broncos welcoming back Reece Walsh, potentially adding dynamic to their backline, though they’ll miss the guiding hand of Adam Reynolds.

The Dolphins face significant outs, including Herbie Farnworth and Felise Kaufusi, testing their squad depth.

The head-to-head record slightly favours the Broncos, who’ve emerged victorious in their previous encounters, suggesting psychological edge. However, the Dolphins’ current form and the Broncos’ key injuries present an opportunity for the Dolphins.

Considering the Dolphins’ momentum and the Broncos’ resilience, this match promises fireworks. Yet, we cant ignore the teams these two rivals have faced so far this season, the Dolphins might be on top but they have been up against some of the worst teams in the game, while the Broncos have faced top tier challengers which has grounded their rise to the top.

Broncos should win this game as they begin their climb to the top rungs of the ladder

Betting Tip: Brisbane Broncos

Suggested Bet: Broncos to Win by 13+ @ $2.40 with Neds

 

 

Warriors vs Sea Eagles

Saturday, April 13, 2024

3:00 PM @ Go Media Stadium

The New Zealand Warriors are set to host the Manly Sea Eagles in what promises to be a fierce battle at Go Media Stadium, Auckland.

With both teams coming off varied successes, the Warriors look to continue their winning streak after solid performances, while Manly aims to build on their recent victory.

Injuries could tip the scales, with both sides missing key players.

Manly’s concerns include Matthew Lodge and Jason Saab, potentially affecting their forward pack and wing speed.

The Warriors, meanwhile, have several players sidelined, including Dallin Watene-Zelezniak and Bunty Afoa, testing their depth.

Historically, matches between these two have been unpredictable, with both teams sharing wins. However, the Warriors’ recent form at home and Manly’s inconsistent performances offer an edge to the hosts.

Given the Warriors’ stronger defensive stats this season and their ability to capitalise on home advantage, they are likely to succeed this week. Despite Manly’s resilience, the Warriors’ recent form and strategic play style, especially in overcoming their injury setbacks, should see them win this week, consolidating their position as contenders.

Betting Tip: New Zealand Warriors

Suggested Bet: Warriors to Win by 1-12 @ $2.75 with Neds

 

 

Eels vs Cowboys

Saturday, April 13, 2024

5:30 PM @ Commbank Stadium

Parramatta Eels are gearing up to host North Queensland Cowboys at CommBank Stadium, Sydney, in a clash that’s become one of the anticipated fixtures of the round.

Parramatta, with an eye-catching scoring average this season, aims to extend their win streak, leveraging their formidable attack. The Cowboys, meanwhile, are looking to overturn a recent slump and rekindle the form that has seen them become a formidable force in the league.

The Eels will be without key players like Mitchell Moses and Haze Dunster, which could affect them. The Cowboys face their injury challenges, notably missing Coen Hess and Zac Laybutt for extended periods, impacting their forward rotation and defensive resilience.

Recent head-to-head encounters tilt in favour of the Eels, showcasing their ability to clinch wins against the Cowboys, especially in high-stakes matches.

Despite the Cowboys’ potential for an upset, Parramatta’s recent form, and the advantage of playing at CommBank Stadium, positions them as the favourites.

Expect a tight match, with the Eels likely leveraging their home ground advantage and dynamic attack to secure a victory over the Cowboys.

Betting Tip: Parramatta Eels

Suggested Bet: Eels to Win by 1-12 @ $3.35 with Neds

 

 

Rabbitohs vs Sharks

Saturday, April 13, 2024

7:35 PM @ Accor Stadium

The South Sydney Rabbitohs and Cronulla Sharks are set to clash at Accor Stadium Sydney, both teams carrying different ambitions into the match.

The Rabbitohs, struggling with form and a hefty injury list including key players like Latrell Mitchell and Alex Johnston, face an uphill battle.

On the other side, the Sharks, riding a wave of more consistent performances, look to cement their place as contenders.

Recent encounters have been mixed, with both sides claiming wins. However, the Sharks have edged out the Rabbitohs in their last meeting, potentially giving them a psychological edge.

The key injuries for South Sydney, especially in their backline, could significantly impact their playmaking abilities and defensive structure. Cronulla, despite missing key forwards, seems better placed to cope, with imminent returns bolstering their squad.

Considering the Sharks’ current form, their ability to perform under pressure, and the Rabbitohs’ challenges, Cronulla has the upper hand.

Expect the Sharks to exploit the Rabbitohs’ vulnerabilities, particularly capitalising on their absences.

Betting Tip: Cronulla Sharks

Suggested Bet: Sharks to Win by 13+ @ $2.30 with Neds

 

 

Wests Tigers vs Dragons

Sunday, April 14, 2024

4:05 PM @ Campbelltown Sports Stadium

The St. George Illawarra Dragons are set to lock horns with the Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, Sydney, in a match that’s become a notable rivalry.

Recent encounters have been tightly contested, but the Dragons slightly edged out in their last meeting, adding an extra layer of anticipation to this weeks game.

Both teams are looking to bounce back from recent losses, highlighted by a string of injuries.

The Tigers face several outs, including key players like Adam Doueihi and Starford To’a, potentially impacting their attack. The Dragons, while less affected by injuries, will miss Corey Allan’s presence for the season, a blow to their backline stability.

The head-to-head stats from recent seasons indicate closely matched contests, yet the Tigers have been struggling with form this season, particularly in their defence, conceding significantly more on average compared to the Dragons.

Given the current form, injury concerns, and past performance, the Dragons are favourites this week. Their slightly better defensive record and the Tigers’ notable absences give the Dragons the edge.

Expect a fierce battle, but the Dragons, with their defence and recent head-to-head advantage, should secure the win.

Betting Tip: St. George Illawarra Dragons

Suggested Bet: Dragons to Win by 1-12 @ $3.15 with Neds

 

 

Raiders vs Titans

Sunday, April 14, 2024

6:15 PM @ GIO Stadium

The Canberra Raiders are set to face the Gold Coast Titans at GIO Stadium Canberra, with both teams coming into the match under contrasting circumstances.

The Raiders, showing promising form with a recent victory, aim to continue their winning momentum. Meanwhile, the Titans, struggling with a series of defeats, are desperate to turn their fortunes around.

Injuries could play a significant role in this contest. Canberra’s list includes key players like Jordan Rapana and Corey Horsburgh sidelined, potentially affecting their attack and forward pack. Gold Coast is not spared, with Tino Fa’asuamaleaui out for the season, leaving a considerable gap in their lineup.

Recent encounters have been closely contested, but Canberra has managed to edge out victories in their last meetings at GIO Stadium, indicating a psychological advantage. Additionally, Canberra’s superior average points for and against this season suggest stronger overall performance.

Given Canberra’s form, home advantage, and a slightly better handling of injuries, they’re positioned as favourites. While Gold Coast has the potential to challenge, Canberra’s consistency and tactical play, especially at GIO Stadium, should see them secure a win.

Betting Tip: Canberra Raiders

Suggested Bet: Canberra Raiders 13+ @ $2.30 with Neds
