NRL Round 7 Footy Tips

Roosters vs Storm

Thursday, April 18, 2024

7:50 PM @ Allianz Stadium

Thursday night footy brings a blockbuster at Allianz Stadium, with the Sydney Roosters squaring off against the Melbourne Storm. Both teams, neck and neck with recent form, have the punters scratching their heads. The Roosters, rejuvenated by Tedesco’s return, are slight favourites in a fixture that’s had more flips than a pancake house.

Melbourne isn’t rolling over anytime soon, coming off a cheeky win against the Bulldogs. With the head-to-head tighter than a new pair of jeans, Sydney’s slight edge comes with home advantage and a beefed-up line-up.

Recent clashes have been a tug-o-war, and with both sides scoring more freely than a radio giveaway, expect a great game. Injuries aren’t helping either, with both squads patching up key positions.

Punt on the Roosters to strut their stuff and nick it by a whisker, but don’t bet your house unless it’s on wheels. This one’s set to go down to the wire, with just a sneeze separating them.

Betting Tip: Sydney Roosters

Suggested Bet: Sydney Roosters to Win by 1-12 @ $2.90 with Neds

 

Dragons vs Warriors

Friday, April 19, 2024

6:00 PM @ WIN Stadium

Friday night lights at WIN Stadium as the Dragons host the Warriors, who’ve turned this ground into a bit of a holiday park, thrashing the home side in their last outing here. The Dragons, licking wounds from recent close shaves, are underdogs yet again with the Warriors looking to extend a two-game winning streak in the Gong.

The Warriors, minus Jazz Tevaga but still the punters’ pick, are expected to run riot with Adam Pompey fresh off the bench, hoping to add zip. The Dragons, reshuffling their deck without Jack Bird, might find themselves a bit short-changed in the centres.

With the odds stacked at 1.48 for the Warriors against the Dragons’ 2.65, and a -6.5 point line favouring the visitors, expect some sparks. The smart money’s on the Warriors to cover the spread and keep the scoreboard ticking over the 42.5 point mark, suggesting shin-kicking aplenty from both squads.

Betting Tip: New Zealand Warriors

Suggested Bet: New Zealand Warriors to win by 13+ points @ $2.90 with Neds

 

 

Eels vs Dolphins

Friday, April 19, 2024

8:00 PM @ TIO Stadium

This Friday at Darwin, the Eels look to zap the Dolphins following a gutsy comeback win last week. Despite losing key player Blaize Talagi, Parra’s spirits are high, ready to fry some Dolphins who are still smarting from their own recent stumble. With a winning streak in these clashes, the Eels are tipped to keep their mojo working.

Last year, the Eels turned the Dolphins into fish out of water with a 48-20 schooling. Expect more of the same with the Eels favoured to cover the -6.5 spread, reflecting their knack for turning tight tussles their way. The Dolphins, missing ‘The Hammer’ at fullback, might find this trip up north more daunting than a croc’s smile.

With the odds swinging heavily towards the Eels (67.57% win probability), and historical head-to-head giving them the edge, it’s safe to bet on Parra. While the Dolphins will put up a fight, expect the Eels to slide through with another win.

Betting Tip: Parrmatta Eels

Suggested Bet: Parramatta Eels to Win by 1-12 @ $2.85 with Neds

 

 

Panthers vs Tigers

Saturday, April 20, 2024

3:00 PM @ Carrington Park Stadium

This Saturday at Carrington Park, the Panthers aim to claw back their pride against the Tigers after a shock loss last round. Last year, the Tigers pounced and snagged a win in a low-scoring scuffle at this very venue, marking the Panthers’ worst score for the season. They’re not keen on a repeat.

Penrith, missing Nathan Cleary but bolstered by the return of Scott Sorensen, looks set to dominate the Tigers who’ve been more up and down than a yo-yo. With Lachlan Galvin back from the sin bin, the Tigers are hoping for a miracle but facing a mountain to climb with the Panthers keen to settle scores.

The bookies have the Panthers as clear favourites (odds at 1.16), predicting they’ll not just win, but cover the -15.5 point spread comfortably. Expect Penrith to turn the heat up and the Tigers to maybe get a few consolation snipes in a game that’s looking like a bit of a mismatch.

Betting Tip: Penrith Panthers

Suggested Bet: Penrith Panthers to win by 13+ @ $1.70 with Neds

 

 

Titans vs Sea Eagles

Saturday, April 20, 2024

5:30 PM @ Cbus Super Stadium

Sunday’s clash at the northern fortress sees the Sea Eagles swooping in on the winless Titans. Manly’s licking wounds after a heartbreaker tie, while the Titans felt the sting of a golden point loss. With head-to-heads tilted in Gold Coast’s favour recently, this game is set to stoke the fire in the hearts of fans country wide.

Manly’s reinforced with Saab and Garrick back, adding pace and punch, aiming to turn last year’s upset on its head. The Titans, though gritty, are struggling to convert plays into points, evident in their saggy season stats.

Bookies fancy Manly heavily (odds at 1.35), expecting them to cover the -8.5 spread with a flurry. History whispers caution with the Titans’ past ambushes, but with Manly’s cavalry back, expect them to seal this with a bit more than a kiss.

Betting Tip: Manly Sea Eagles

Suggested Bet: Manly Sea Eagles to Win by 1-12 @ $2.90 with Neds

 

 

Broncos vs Raiders

Saturday, April 20, 2024

7:35 PM @ Suncorp Stadium

This Saturday night at Suncorp, the Broncos are keen to buck the Raiders right back to Canberra. Brisbane’s swinging from a win, looking to rope in another against the Raiders, who’ve had just a six-day break after a close win. Despite recent form, the Broncos haven’t strung two wins together this season—maybe tonight’s the night.

The Raiders have a decent track record at Suncorp, winning last year’s game against the Broncos, but with key players out and fatigue setting in, it’s gonna be tougher than a two-dollar steak. The Broncos are without big names like Haas and Reynolds, yet they’re still the bookies’ darlings (odds at 1.40), hinting a strong chance to cover the -7.5 spread.

Expect the Broncos to hit hard from the get-go, looking to settle scores with a fiery start. The Raiders will fight tooth and nail but expect Brisbane to gallop over the line with a score that nudges just past the 42.5 mark.

Betting Tip: Brisbane Broncos

Suggested Bet: Brisbane Broncos to win by 13+ / Over 42.5 @ $4.10 with Neds

 

 

Bulldogs vs Knights

Sunday, April 21, 2024

2:00 PM @ Accor Stadium

This Sunday arvo at Accor Stadium, it’s a tussle at the bottom with the Bulldogs locking horns with the Knights. Both squads are desperate to sidestep a wooden spoon dance, making this more than just a game—it’s a salvage operation!

The Knights, despite a valiant start last week, couldn’t hold the fort, hinting they might bring a more rounded game today. The Dogs, on the other hand, are still licking their wounds after coughing up a late lead against Melbourne. Historical head-to-heads lean slightly in Newcastle’s favour with the Knights having turned the Dogs’ backyard into a hunting ground in recent outings.

Odds are nudging towards the Knights (1.82) who seem to have the edge with a -1.5 point spread suggesting a tight scrap. Expect the Knights to channel their inner crusaders, pushing the total over the 41.5 line in a match that promises more twists than a pretzel factory.

Betting Tip: Newcastle Knights

Suggested Bet: Newcastle Knights to win by 1-12 / Over 41.5 @ $6.25 with Neds

 

 

Sharks vs Cowboys

Sunday, April 21, 2024

4:05 PM @ Pointsbet Stadium

This Sunday at PointsBet Stadium, it’s the Sharks vs the Cowboys in a clash that’s hotter than a sausage sizzle in December! The Sharks are swimming strong, aiming for a third straight win, despite missing Sione Katoa to suspension. Meanwhile, the Cowboys, with only one win at this venue since the dinosaurs roamed, are looking to lasso themselves a much-needed victory.

The Sharks have had the wood over the Cowboys in recent times, including a couple of whopping wins, but with key changes for both teams, it’s anyone’s game. Braden Hamlin-Uele’s return might just give the Sharks the beef they need upfront.

With the odds favouring the Sharks (1.62), expect them to bite hard and not let go, covering the -3.5 spread. The Cowboys aren’t slouches, especially after a narrow loss last week, so they’ll be coming out with guns blazing, but the Sharks’ defense looks too robust for a breach.

Betting Tip: Cronulla Sharks

Suggested Bet: Cronulla Sharks / Over 43.5 @ $3.20 with Neds
