The Betting Buddha’s Round 2 Preview & Tips:

Bulldogs Vs Cowboys

Round 2 Kicks off from ANZ stadium with the Bulldogs taking on the Cowboys. Both sides are coming off a round 1 lost, with the Cowboys the more disappoint of the two sides.

The bulldogs look great in defence against the Eels last week but besides a couple of moments of brilliance they never looked like a side that was going to score a try. DWZ was fantastic at fullback, Lachlan Lewis’s kicking game was very good. if he can get players Reimis smith & will hopoate more chances close to the line they could cause an upset here. The cowboys on the other hand were dissappointing in the middle of the field defensively but the outside backs in Kyle Feldt & Val Holmes looked very dangerous. They should have a too much fire power for the bulldogs this week, but this game could go either way

Suggested Bets: Cowboys 1-12 $3.30  – Feldt to score a try any time $1.70


Dragons Vs Panthers

Round 1 presented two very different stories for the dragon & panthers. Penrith were very impressive in their win against the Roosters while the Dragons were poor against the Tigers. The Dragons will face a very tough test at home this week, they have added the very talented Matt Dufty but if they continue to drop the ball and not complete their sets this game could get ugly very quickly. Viliame Kikau was one of the most impressive players in the first round, Cleary moved the ball around well and the forward pack gained a lot of nice meters. Mansour, Naden & To’o will look to make big runs to gain great field position when the dragon finish their sets as the dragon kick chase was very poor last week. this being the case i see the Panthers winning this game

Suggested Bets: Panthers to Win $1.60  – Under 39.5 $ 1.90

Broncos Vs Bunnies

Friday night Footy ends with game of the round contender in Brisbane vs South Sydney.  The Broncos forwards looked like they could run through a brick wall last week & behind such a strong forward pack the kicking game of Milford & Croft really set them up for the Win & a top 4 contender this year. The Rabbits looked to get tired in the final stages of their game against the Sharks but were saved by a couple of mistakes & the skills of Adam Reynolds. He will need to have another big game if they are to stop this athletic Broncos team. This game is set to be a cracker, the Bunnies have a lot of star power and will improve the more they play together Latrell, walker & Reynolds will get better the more they play together.  Brisbane look to be the fitter stronger side & with the home field advantage should just get over the line in a game im looking forward to seeing

Suggested Bets: Broncos $1.90  – EITHER TEAM to win under 6.5 points

Warriors Vs Raiders

With everything that is going on in the world at the moment the Warriors have been the hardest hit team with the NRL having them stay in australia & play their Home games up on the Gold Coast it doesn’t get much better for the Warriors this week taking on the Raiders who look to be one of the teams to beat this year. Jack Wighton was very impressive & could really take his game to another level this year. The Clive churchill medalist should be one of the favorites for the Daley M this year as his abbilty to score & find holes in the oppersition defence. For the warriors to get close in this game they will need to improve alot, complete sets, control the centre of the field & create space for RTS. This looks to be a tall ask for the boys from NZ & i expect Canberra to play a very fast game from the play the ball, this will get the warriors on the back foot and get an easy win for the boys in green in the first game of super Saturday

Suggested Bets: Canberra 13+  – J Crocker to score a try

Rooster vs Sea eagles

The surprise of the round last week was the Roosters started off the 2020 season with a lost. Manly also had a lost in the first round with a very hard physical game against the Storm. These two sides are very strong defensively & it will be a battle between the Halves & fullback that will decide this one. DCE will have to control his troops with a good kicking game while Luke Keary has the outside backs like Tedesco that can change a game with a line breaking goosey. Manly was very slow playing the ball last week and can’t afford to do that this week against the roosters who should win this game in a tight affair

Suggested Bets: Roosters 1-12 $2.88  – Under 38.5 $1.90

Sharks vs Storm

Expect fireworks in the last game of Super Saturday between the Sharks & Storm. The storm wore down Manly in their opening game while the Sharks were their own worst enemy with a poor completion rate in their round 1 lost. Both sides will be looking to improve in attack, the shark’s quickness of playing the ball could get the Storm on the back foot. the storm are the masters of slowing down the play the ball & with a forward pack that is big, strong, fast & willing to offload the ball the Storm can get a 2nd phase & open up gaps for Addo Carr & Papenhuyzen.  The Sharks have a great half pairing in Shaun Johnson & Chad Townsend if they can move the ball behind Wade graham & Andrew Fiftia, they can limit the impact the great Cam Smith will have on this game.

Suggested Bets: Storm 1-12 $3.00  – Katoa to score a try

Tigers vs Knights

The Battle between two of the most impressive winners from round one, the west tigers could be the surprise packet this year. Nofoaluma looked impressive & Benji turned back the clock with Josh Reynolds riding shot gun. while Kyle Ponga, Mitchell Pearce beat up on the disappointing Warriors.  This game will sort out if the Knights are a top 8 side or will they go back to being a HOT/COLD side each week. They have a forward pack with a lot of depth and two game changes in Pearce & Ponga, not to mention a winger in Lee that will give every side problem’s in the air. I expect this game to be rather high scoring & it is very dissappointing that Leichhardt oval will be empty for this game as the ground is one of the best fields in the NRL & the crowd always give tigers a boost. In a flip of the coin game i will have to settle for the side with more upside in the West Tigers but my main play would be that this is a high scoring game

Suggested Bets: Over 38.5 points $1.90  – Either team by under 6.5 points

Titans Vs Eels

In the last game of round 2 the Titans play the Eels in a game that could end up very one sided. The Eels have had an extra-long break from their game on Thursday night last week.  they had a lot of little problems with combinations not totally gelling & their timing just a little bit off. with some extra training sessions & analysis look for the Eels to be a much-improved side this week. Gutherson, Ferguson & Sivo will be looking to get more high balls from Mitchell Moses. Sami & Anthony Don looked great for the Titans but will the titans forward pack get enough meters so Ash Taylor & Tyrone Roberts can make something happen. I dont think so, Parra on the other hand is strong in this department Lane, Matterson, Paulo & Campbell- Gillard will move the ball down the field & give Moses time to expose the Titans defense or create an overlap and move the ball wide.

Suggested Bets: Parra over 6.5 points  – Sivo to score a try Parra to win
