Finals Week 3 Preview:

SOUTH SYDNEY vs MANLY SEA EAGLES  

The first game of the weekend is Friday night between the Rabbitohs and the Sea Eagles. In a game that I think will be the close. We have the fast-finishing Sea Eagles taking on the Bunnies, who surprised many people by beating the Panthers and getting a week off. The Bunnies won that game by making big meters from the forwards and excellent line rushing. If they do that this week, they may open up space for Turbo to exploit. The Forwards will be the key for the bunnies if they can make more meters in the middle of the field. Adam Reynolds will do the rest. Especially to that left-hand side, which has been dominant all year. The Sea eagles are not without their own firepower. Turbo and Jason Saab had scored 26 tries each, and Ruben on the other wing, is the leading points scorer in the NRL this year. Even with both sides being good defensively, I think this will be a higher scoring game than people expect 22-16 Manly in an upset. 

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES 1-12 $3.25

PANTHERS vs STORM 

At the start of the year, I thought that this again would be the Grand Final match up & we all would have been happy to see that. I didn’t expect it to be the Prelim final & I didn’t expect it to be very one-sided in the betting. The Panthers lost in the first round of the finals surprisingly to the Bunnies & then last week they only just got over the line against the Eels. Both are perfect sides, and the games were very physically demanding. The really surprising thing was that the panthers only scored one try in each game. You Know that they are good defensively, but they normally are great in attack & they can beat the Storm only by scoring one try. The Storm gets back Addo Carr and have been the best team all year. With this game being played at Suncorp Stadium, the Melbourne storm has made this place a second home in the last couple of years. They have a better record at the ground than the Broncos or even the Qld Maroons. With talent all over the field and the key players of Smith, Munster Hughes & Papenhuyzen all playing well, it’s hard to see the Storm losing this game.

Suggested Bets: STORM Win -6.5 $1.60

Finals week 2 Preview:

SYDNEY ROOSTERS vs MANLY SEA EAGLES  

After the Massive first week of the finals, we have a couple of games that can go either way. The first is the Roosters up against the Sea Eagles. After the Sea Eagles went down to Melbourne Storm, they will be looking to bounce back against the Roosters. The Storm stopped Turbo & they were a totally different side. This will be a battle of the fullbacks with Teddy being the best player for the Roosters this year again. He has been amazing in both setting up plays and running from off his own try line. With Toupu and Manu his main sidekicks out, they can really cause some trouble to the undersized Manly backs. With that being said, the Manly Halfs should be able to cover the difference with a better kicking game. 

Suggested Bets: MANLY 1-12 $2.25

PENRITH PANTHERS vs PARAMATTA EELS  

In a game that could have been played next week or even as the grand final, these two sides that don’t really like each other will be out to win this and a shot at the Melbourne storm next week. The Panthers were in a tough game against the Rabbits, and they couldn’t find a way to the try line like they normally do. The Bunnies showed a couple of spots that are a little questionable. Their middle forwards got very tired, and the defences started to show some cracks. The Eels have big forwards but are they able to do the same thing as the Bunnies did last week. With Mitchell Moses in charge, they might be able to keep up, but I expect the Panthers to just get over the line & set up a massive game against the Storm next week   

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 1-12 $1.60

Finals week 1 Preview: 

MELBOURNE STORM vs MANLY SEA EAGLES  

After the Melbourne storm won the Minor premiership, they get to take on the inform side of the NRL in the Sea Eagles. After resting many stars last week, the Storm is close to full strength, just missing Addo Carr out on the wing. The Storm welcomes back Munster, Cheese & Papi has won the full-back position from Nico Hynes. This is a massive call as they take on the Best player of the 2021 season in Turbo. A shoe-in for the Dally M medal can really finish out a game like they did last week against the Cowboys. They will need to play all 80 mins & control the ball. DCE kicking game will also need to be at its best to beat the Storm this week. I expect a challenging hard game where the Storm just gets over the line thanks to quick play, the balls in the middle of the park & a strong defence. 

Suggested Bets: STORM 1-12 $3.25

SYDNEY ROOSTERS vs GOLD COAST TITANS 

In the first elimination finals, we have the injury-plagued Roosters taking on the fast-finishing Titans. The Titans only just scraped into the finals with a win in the last round. They may have just found the right way to play some of their stars. With Fajita coming off the bench, it gives them a massive boost halfway through the half. In their game earlier this year, the Roosters won an epic game 35-34 & I think they might be a little bit too classy for the titans, who will come back next year, a lot bigger and stronger. an extra year of playing together & building in defence will make this the team to watch next year  

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS 1-12 $2.60

SOUTH SYDNEY vs PENRITH PANTHERS  

In what could be the game of the finals, the Panthers will be looking to go one better this year by winning this game and having the week off. The Panthers were the best team in the NRL for the first part of the season. They have had a couple of bumps in the road on the way but are back to full strength for the finals. The Rabbitohs have the best-left edge in the NRL, and they score more tries than anyone down that side. Alex Johnston is a star and can finish the play as good as anyone in the world today. It’s in the middle of the field where this game will be won and lost. Behind 2 big forward packs, we have 2 of the best halfs with 2 great kicking games. If Cleary controls the game, it is all over for the Bunnies. The Panthers should win but I believe it will be tight & the bunnies can cover the line as it’s at 12 points.  

Suggested Bets: RABBITOHS +12.5 $1.80

EELS vs KNIGHTS   

The last game of this week is between the Eels and the Knights. Both sides were coming off a loss last week. With the Knights going down to the Broncos & the Eels playing a second-string side against the Panthers and getting smashed. Im not sure how either team is going to play here. The Knights were on a roll, winning 4 games in a row thanks to hard work and the knights better players getting back from injury. It will take a massive game from Mitchell Pearce & Ponga for the knights to win this one. As the Eels should be fresh and ready to go. I feel like after having the week of the Eels may be very slow to start off. If they start off quick, they will be tough to stop. With the knights being a good defensive side, they can stay in this game a long way.

Round 25 Preview:

RAIDERS vs ROOSTERS 

The first game of the week is between the Raiders & the Roosters in a game that will shape the final 8 this year. With the Raiders sitting just outside the 8 in 9th, they need to win this game to be any chance of making the finals. While the Roosters are sitting 6th and have already got a spot in the elimination finals next week. The Roosters may rest a couple of players for next week, but after a year of injuries, they may not have the reserves player health enough to cover the stars left. With that being said, I like the Roosters in this one. They are a stronger side in defence & have a couple of keys back in their forward pack. 

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS 1-12 $2.25

SHARKS vs STORM 

By Friday night, the meaning of this game may of changed with the Sharks sitting in 8th place on the ladder. If the Raiders lost on Thursday night, they only have to worry about the Titans taking 8th spot off them for finals. The Storm is coming off their first loss in 20 weeks. They have been the form side for most of the season, but I expect them to rest some star players before finals & blood a couple of players for the future. This is a game where the Storm needs to sort out what way the team will look for September. & I feel the shark may have to be amazing to break through the Storm defence this week  

Suggested Bets: STORM 12+ $1.60

EELS vs PANTHERS  

In what will be a preview to a finals game I believe will be played in the next month, The Eels & panthers go head-to-head. The Eels broke the storms all-time winning record last week when they went for their 20th win in a row. Parra was fantastic after some very disappointing weeks. They put in one of their best games just before finals. They have named a team that is resting a couple of key players. If the Panthers play the side that is currently named, it will be a great sighter to see who is ready for finals football & who might just be there to make up the numbers. The Panthers will win this game, but 5 try head start is a lot for any team to reel in 

Suggested Bets: EELS + 28.5 $1.85

BRONCOS vs KNIGHTS   

Saturday brings us a couple of games that will be nice hit-outs for the finals team. First up, we have the Broncos taking on the 7th Placed Knights. The Knights are starting to get back star players from injury right before finals. They are looking for a totally different side. The Broncos have had a very up & down year but have a lot to look forward to in 2022. Kev Walters has done an excellent job in his first year of coaching & I can’t wait to see what he has in store next year  

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS -6.5 $1.75

COWBOYS vs SEA EAGLES 

Another game that could change a lot closer to kick-off is the Sea Eagles vs the Cowboys. If the sea eagles decide to save players for the finals as they have sewn up a spot. This game could be any ones guess. The Sea eagles are the side no one wants to play in the finals. With Turbo playing the best football of his life & DCE controlling they play, they could go all the way to the grand finals. The Cowboys are a side that was fantastic in the middle of the year and lost its way thanks to injuries & a lack of leadership out on the field. They have picked up Chad Townsend for next year, and I expect the Cowboys will come back bigger and better next year.   

Suggested Bets: COWBOY + 22.5 $1.85

RABBIOTHS vs DRAGONS 

The Bunnies take on the Dragons in the last round. With all the fireworks that happened last week, the Bunnies will be looking to win this game against a dragons outfit that looked like they might be playing finals in the middle of the year. 

The Bunnies will be without most of their star players. With no chance of moving up to 2nd & basically stuck in the top 4 I expect them to put on a good showing, but the dragons to win this one 

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS +2.5 $1.80

TITANS vs WARRIORS    

10th vs 11th in the final game of the season. The titans have a small outside chance of getting into the 8. They need to win this game by a lot and hope that some of the teams above them lose. If that happens to go into this game, watch out. If this is a dead rubber, this game could be one of the most exciting games all year. With exciting talent all over the park. The Warriors have the talent to score 30 plus points, just like the Titans. 

Suggested Bets: TITANS / OV 52 points $2.50

BULLDOGS vs TIGERS

The last round game is a dead rubber between two sides that want the year to be over with. The Bulldogs are building for next year & the Tigers have lacked heart all year. There are many problems at both teams, but all they can do is rebuild for next year. In this game, Luke Brooks need to play well for the Tigers to win. If not well, anything could happen. Tigers to win, but I dont think I will watch this game. 

Suggested Bets: TIGERS $1.50

Round 24 Preview:

KNIGHTS vs TITANS

The first game of the week is between the Knights and the Titans. This will be a tight game with the titans having massive forwards for the Knights to deal with. The Knights have better playmakers & after the Titans drop Ash Taylor ( Who is overrated & overpaid), in my eyes, the Knights should get over the line by controlling the ball & field position.

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS $1.75

RAIDERS vs WARRIORS

Friday night starts with another tight game with the warriors defeat and the raider going head to head. Both sides can be very up and down at times. The Warriors are missing the RTS magic. If they had that, they could have been a different result last week. The Raiders are having a few problems in the house. I will go with the Raiders, but these are the games where the Warriors play out of their skin & just get over the line.  

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS 1-12 $2.70

ROOSTERS vs BUNNIES 

In what would be a great way to end Friday night, the Roosters take on the Bunnies in the game of the round. The Bunnies are playing good, and the Roosters are still in a good position after a season full of injuries. Teddy has to lead the boys well, and everything he has done this year needs to be praised. The Bunnies have a better side with a lot more stars around the park-like Renyolds & Mitchell. They will be a tough side to beat in the finals & with a win here, they will most likely play the Panthers in the first week.

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES $1.25

DRAGONS vs COWBOYS  

Saturday brings us a terrible game to start off with. The Dragons are poor & the cowboys at the moment are the worst side in the league. The Dragons have dropped Duffty again, so they don’t want to win. The Cowboys get JT back. He will help them in the middle, but they have a lot of problems, but they could cover the line. 

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS +3.5 $1.90

SHARKS vs BRONCOS 

The Sharks take on the Broncos this week. They currently sit 8th on the ladder & need a win to keep the finals alive. The Broncos are finishing the year off a much better side than people expected mid-year. Building for a good 2022, the Broncos will be looking at young players to get them over the line. I feel the Sharks will be too classy and look good at keeping the 8th spot theirs.  

Suggested Bets: SHARKS 1-12 $2.65

STORM vs EELS

The Melbourne Storm have won 19 games in a row. They Take on the Eels to break the record. They are the best side in the league at the moment and not full strength. They aren’t beating sides as they did earlier in the year. The Eels have also lost a little bit of spark with players getting injured like Sivo last week. Addo Carr and the boys should win this game and break the Nrl Record & win the minor premierships 

Suggested Bets: STORM 13+ $1.50

SEA EAGLES vs BULLDOGS   

Really not a game I think will go down in history. The Sea eagles take on the bottom of the ladder Bulldogs. The sea Eagles are flying at the moment. They are looking great before finals. They look like the side no one wants to take on in the next couple of weeks. The Bulldogs have had a few shining lights, but they really have built for 2022 with Addo Carr coming to the club. Here they will lose another game. 

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES – 12.5 $1.50

PANTHERS vs TIGERS

The Last game of the round and again a game that won’t do much besides getting a couple of meters in some fresh legs for the Panthers. The Tiger will finish in the bottom half of the ladder again. They might score a try, but I can’t see them scoring many points in this one 

Suggested Bets: Panthers Over 21 points 2.00

Round 23 Preview:

STORM vs TITANS

The first game of this week is between the Storm & the Titans. The Storm is the best team in the league, and they prove it each week. In their second home on the sunny coast, they should be too good for the Titans. The Titans are a strong side that lacks a punch out wide and the defence that could get them to the finals. They have a monster forward pack that will test the Storm. With the record of most wins in a row on the Line, the Storm should win this. 

Suggested Bets: STORM 13+ $1.45

RAIDERS vs MANLY

Friday night starts off with the sea eagles & Raiders. The Sea Eagles are one of the better sides in the league Turbo and DCE are playing some of the best rugby of their career. The Raiders are on a downhill spiral at the moment sitting just outside the top 8. They need to win this game to keep their finals chances alive.

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES 13+ $1.70

PANTHERS vs BUNNIES 

In what would be a great way to end Friday night. The Panthers take on the Bunnies in the game of the round. The Bunnies are playing good, and the panthers are getting star players back before finals. The Left edge of the bunnies isn’t as good as it was in the middle of the year when Alex Johnston was on edge, but it can still pack a mean punch. The Panther defence has to improve and with clearly playing is a second game back he will control the ball & the field.  

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS $1.75

WEST TIGERS vs SHARKS  

Saturday brings us a game between 2 sides that will finish mid-table. The west tigers are very inconsistent. The Sharks are at a low point every since they lost Shaun Johnston. They are great on the outside & have a good full back. They have a good forward pack that should be too strong for the tigers. Luke Brooks needs to control this game to stop the Sharks. 

Suggested Bets: SHARKS $1.50

BULLDOGS vs KNIGHTS 

The Knights have a chance to cement a finals position with a big win here against the Bulldogs. The knights are currently in 7th, and they are getting players back at the right time. Ponga is getting better, and they finally get Mitchell Pearce. They will be to strong, especially with Bradman Best out wide. 

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS +14.5 1.85

ROOSTERS vs DRAGONS

The Roosters taking on the dragons is a game that could shape the top 8 if the dragons win, the rooster could lose a top 4 spot, while the roosters can stop the sea eagles from taking 4th place off them if they keep winning. The Roosters keep losing people to injury, and this has really put a stop to their momentum. The Dragons will be competitive but I think the roosters will still win. 

Suggested Bets: Roosters $1.50

EELS vs COWBOYS 

Really not a game I think will go down in history but still, it is a chance for the Cowboys to beat a top 8 side on the slide in the last couple of weeks of the season. The Eels have been bad the last 3 weeks, and they really need to find some form before the finals. The Line in this game is 12.5, and I think the cowboys can get close to that in this game 

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS +12.5 $1.80

BRONCOS vs WARRIORS 

A 50/50 game to finish off the round. It Should be a very good game as the Warriors were great last week and moved the ball around really well. The Broncos are building aside for 2022, and a couple of wins in the last few rounds will help them, and their supporters believe. Oates & Coates and the rest of the broncos backline will be wanting the ball nice and high near the try line in this game. I think a 24-20 scoreline is very likely here. 

Suggested Bets: BRONCOS $1.50

Round 22 Preview:

STORM vs RAIDERS

The first game of this week is between the Storm & the Raiders. The Storm are the best team in the league, and they prove it each week in their second home, the Sunny Coast. They should be too good for the Raiders. The Raiders are a strong side that is lacking a punch out wide and the defence that got them to the grand final. 

Suggested Bets: STORM 13+ $1.35

PANTHERS vs DRAGONS 

Friday night starts with the Dragons & Panthers. The Panthers are building back up to full strength. They are the Storms main threat this year defensively. They are sound in the attack. They can get better. They need to be set at full-back to help this happen. The Dragons are still a side trying to find their way from the Covid issue. a Simple thing here is to back the Panthers 13+ 

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 13+ $1.50

BRONCOS vs ROOSTERS

In what would be a great way to end Friday night. The Broncos & Roosters are in a game that will be tight, thanks to the roosters having such a long injury list. The Broncos may be able to get the job done here with a big forward pack moving the ball down the middle of the field. With the roosters having players like Victor Radley still in the side, they are still a shot. Also, watch for Manu & Toupu to play well for the Roosters. 

Suggested Bets: Either Team Under 10.5 $1.65

RABBITOHS vs TITANS  

Saturday brings us a couple of crackers. This game will be one you need to grab a couple of beers and watch in lockdown. The Bunnies are a top side while the Titans are getting their act together. After a long season, strong teams always finish the best, and that’s what the titans are doing. With a line of 18.5 in this game is crazy. This game should be closer than that, so im backing the Titans at the line in this one.  

Suggested Bets: TITANS +18.5 $1.80

COWBOYS vs WEST TIGERS 

The game of the weekend, really, and I don’t know how these two sides will play or even if they will play anywhere near their top. The Cowboys can score many points on their day, but they haven’t been the side I thought they would be after origin. The West tigers well, at times, lack heart. They play stupid rugby, and they need a leader to get around the park. In this one, your guess is as good as mine. 

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS +4.5 $1.85

MANLY vs EELS

Manly took on the Storm last week, and they got found out. This week they take on the Eels who got smashed by the bunnies. The Sea eagles are playing so well & are a top-four side. DCE & Turbo will take over this game like they have every other week. They have such a great connection. They are the team no one wants to face in the finals. 

Suggested Bets: MANLY 13+ $1.83

BULLDOGS vs WARRIORS 

Really not a game I think will go down in the history books, but still it is a chance for the Bulldogs and Warriors get 2 points. I really hope it is the warriors. They are a team that gives their all each week. They have been so good in so many games and just fallen short. At times you wish they could find a way to win & i think this game is it. 

Suggested Bets: WARRIORS $1.50

SHARKS vs KNIGHTS

Another battle for final spots is between the sharks and Knights. The knights are starting to get their best players back, Ponga Best Mitchell Peirce, they are starting to come back at the right time so the knights can sneak in. The Sharks have a different halfs pairing again and in the NRL these days, you need to have a connection in the halfs to build a strong team. Knights for me in this one

Round 21 Preview:

KNIGHTS vs BRONCOS

The first game of this week is between the Knights & Broncos. The boys from Newcastle are starting to get players back that have been out for most of the year. They have Ponga playing well, and getting Bradman best back last week made them unstoppable. The Broncos are getting there. They are building for 2022 & there is a lot to look forwards to next year for them, but the Knights will win this. 

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS $1.35

RAIDERS vs DRAGONS 

Friday night starts off with the Raiders taking on the dragons. The Raiders have been down for the last couple of weeks. The Dragons still have some key players out & a few injuries. Raiders have a better side, but I can’t see this being much of a game to have a 100% pick, so we will go with the raiders with no confidence 22-20

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS $1.50

EELS vs RABBITS

In what could be a very good game. The Eels will take on the Bunnies. The Bunnies have been in fine form still even without Alex Johnson. The Eels are a very good team with a big Forward Pack, and they can move the ball around as good as any team. With Sivo out wide, they have a big man to go to out wide against the undersized Bunnies Wingers.

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES -6.5 $1.65

WARRIORS vs SHARKS  

Saturday brings us a couple of great games. The first one being the Warriors against the Sharks. The Warriors need to play basic rugby to be competitive. Finish sets, make tackles and have a good kicking game. The Sharks are one of the informed teams at the moment. The guys out wide are scoring tries thanks to great halves play, and Kennedy at full-back has been on fire. The Should win here but don’t count out the warriors. 

Suggested Bets: SHARKS Kennedy ANYTIME TRY $2.80

ROOSTERS vs PANTHERS 

The Roosters take on the one-time flag favourites in the Panthers. Who was made look silly by the Melbourne storm last week. Yes, the Panthers have key players out, but they don’t have an injury list like the Roosters. At one stage this year, the back 5 of the Roosters had 500 tries + between them. That is unheard of. They are now down to one, and they can hold the panthers back in this game. 

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS -4.5 $1.65

MANLY vs STORM 

Saturday night, we have the game of the round and maybe the game of the year. The two best sides at the moment are going head to head. Turbo Dce Vs Munster, The Cheese & Papi. The Line is 12.5 in this game, and I know the Storm are scoring a lot of points in the game but doing that against this manly side will be very difficult. You can take the Seaeagles + 12.5 or the Storm to win 1-12

Suggested Bets: STORM 1-12 $3.50

BULLDOGS vs WEST TIGERS 

Not interested in this game. The West Tigers and Bulldogs are two very frustrating teams to watch. You don’t know what side is going to come out & you don’t know what they are going to do. Late last week, they had a couple of long shots for a field goal instead of playing smart rugby and getting a repeat set. They need to be smarter at the finish of games. 

Suggested Bets: WEST TIGERS $1.50

COWBOYS vs TITANS

Another battle for QLD is the last game of this week between the Titans and the Cowboys. The Titans are starting to play really good rugby with the massive forwards pack playing some of the best rugby in the NRL. They are tackling well and getting offloads. The Cowboys have some players out of position. Still, This will cost them the game here as they could keep up with the titans forwards. But your not sure if they will play out all 80 mins.

Round 20 Preview:

ROOSTERS vs PARRAMATTA

The first game of round 20 is a battle for the last spot in the top 4. The Roosters have a lot of problems in keeping their best players on the field. The Eels have lapses in play where they let sides back into the game. The Eels have a great forwards pack that moves the side downfield very well, and that against the Roosters defence will be great to watch. I expect the Eels to win, but I also think the Roosters defence will be up to the task of keeping this close. 

Suggested Bets: EELS 1-12 $2.35

WEST TIGERS vs NZ WARRIORS

Friday night footy starts with the first game the Warriors will be playing without the greatest Warrior ever in RTS. What a career this guy has had Golden boot winner Dally M & just a champion for his warriors and his country. He will move on to all blacks and will star for them as well, so watch out, Wallabies. The Warriors will miss him deeply. The Tigers are slowly getting back into the groove each week I like the halfs pairing more and more. Tigers to win.

Suggested Bets: TIGERS $1.50

COWBOYS vs BRISBANE

The Best side in Queensland will be determined on Friday night. The Cowboys put in a massive effort against the Storm last week. It really surprised everyone in the NRL. The Broncos did the same, getting within a try of the panthers. This makes for a very tight game, and with both sides being terrible in defence at the time, it could be very high scoring. The Total points in the game is currently at 52.5. I really liked the Cowboys and will settle with them in this one 

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS $2.05

RABBITOHS vs DRAGONS 

The Bunnies are playing. You know what that means. They will score points on the left-hand side. This week against the Dragons, it looks like it may be a couple of tries. The Dragons still have holes in their side from the covid suspension a lot of their players got a couple of weeks ago. This again will make them tough to win this one, let alone be close at the end of the game. 

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES 13+ MANSOR ANYTIME TRY $2.20

KNIGHTS vs RAIDERS 

In an exciting game, the Knights take on the Raiders at Suncorp. The Knights are the out siders in this game but with Bradman best back, I think they have a real shot at winning this game. The Raiders only just got over the line against the Eels last week & looking at a lot of stats, they should have lost that game. They are always strong defensively, but I think the knights with some of their better players coming back are over the odds here 

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS $2.25

PANTHERS vs STORM 

Saturday night, we have what many think is the grand final preview. The Panthers & Storm are that far ahead of everyone else in the league at the moment, but this game has lost a little of its shine with Cleary not playing. They haven’t been the same without him & now with Too not playing; they could be in a little more trouble. The Line is 18.5, which is a lot against a very good team, but the Storm has been scoring a handful of tries each game. 

Suggested Bets: STORM 13+ $1.50

BULLDOGS vs TITANS

The worst side of the NRL takes on the most inconsistent team in the Titans. This game could be anything. Both sides can leak a lot of points, and it could become a shoot out. It could be very one-sided. You just don’t know with these 2 sides. The Titans should win & win easy, but the Bulldogs have been getting better. 

Suggested Bets: TITANS -6.5 $1.70

SEA EAGLES vs SHARKS  

In the last game of the weekend, we have the two surprise sides taking on each other. The bookies have this game very lopsided with the Sea eagles @ $1.20. This is because the sharks will be without Shaun Johnson & the form of DCE & Turbo has been out of this world recently. The Sea Eagles are the side no one wants to match up against in the finals as the way they are playing, they could go all the way to the grand final.

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES -6.5 $1.60

NRL Round 19 Preview:

RAIDERS vs PARRAMATTA

The first game of round 18 is between the Raiders and Eels. Both sides were very impressive last week. With the raiders beating the sharks in a really 50/50 game, they were too good for a very inform side. The Eels were fantastic against the titans & dominated the middle of the field. They should be able to stop the Raiders in the middle of the park & that will be their way of winning this game. That and getting the ball out wide to Sivo 

Suggested Bets: EELS -6.5 $1.55

ROOSTERS vs KNIGHTS

Friday night footy starts with the roosters taking on the Knights & with a line, this game could really be a lot closer than the bookie. The Knights didn’t have much of the ball last week and took a 48-4 loss against the storm. The Roosters just got over the line against the Bulldogs, who I think is the worst team in the league. That is why I like the knights at the line, especially with Ponga in the side. 

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS +12.5 $1.90

COWBOYS vs STORM

The Best side in the league at the moment is the Melbourne Storm. With the storm already setting records in scoring more points than any other side after 18 rounds. They have had more 40 point games than any other team in history. The scary thing is they have never been at full strength. & still won’t be this week as Munster is having a rest. I still expect the storm to score over 30 points and win this game. 

Suggested Bets: STORM 13+ & SCORE OVER 30 POINTS $1.75

RABBITOHS vs WARRIORS 

The Bunnies are sitting in 3rd & with some of the Origin starts back, they will be looking to get the job done against the Warriors. They will be missing Roger Tuivasa Sheck. The Bunnies will be missing their leading try scorer in Alex Johnston. Really any player on that side could score tries the way they move the ball. Watch for Josh Mansor to score a double this week in an easy win.

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES 13+ MANSOR ANYTIME TRY $2.70

SEA EAGLES vs TIGERS 

In a very difficult game, to think how much the Eagles will win this game by the Sea Eagles get Turbo & DCE back. With these two playing, they are a totally different side. When you include jake Trbojevic in the mix, they are starting to get to full strength at the right time. The Tigers really took over late last week against the Broncos. The Tigers are well-coached, but I don’t think they have the cattle to compete with the Sea eagles.

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES $1.50

PANTHERS vs BRONCOS 

In a game where the Broncos have lost another young star player in Pangii jr but this time, he is heading to the Panthers. The side the Broncos play this week. The Panthers have added another player for a grand final tilt. he will build up the depth of their forward pack and will make them defensively better. They are already a great side in defence & I think with the way he runs in the middle of the park, he will help them score more points as well—Panthers in a canter.

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 13+ $1.50

DRAGONS vs TITANS

The Dragons take on the Titans in a 50/50 game. The Titans will have all of the Origin stars back for this one, and I think with the dragons still being a little undermanned, I think they can control the game & beat them in the middle of the park. They have a lot of spark from players like Sami, Thompson, & Marsters on the bench. I think they will be able to cover the line here.

Suggested Bets: TITANS $1.60

BULLDOGS vs SHARKS 

In another game where I expect the Sharks to bounce back to form. They are a much better side than the performance. The Sharks attack last week was terrible, and the defence was very disappointing. It was a bad as the bulldogs who were more fired up about starting a fight at halftime than actually winning the game. They need the year over now, so an easy win for the Sharks here.

Suggested Bets: SHARKS 13+ $1.60

NRL Tips Round 18 Preview:

TITANS vs PARRAMATTA

The first game of round 18 is between the Titans and Eels. With Half of the Titans forward pack playing Origin expect the Eels to be fresher and able to move the ball in the middle of the field. The Eels are playing better rugby at the moment. With a great full back in Gutho and Sivo on the wing, they will be hard to stop. 

Suggested Bets: EELS $1.55

SEA EAGLES vs DRAGONS

Friday night footy finishes with the sea eagles taking on the dragons. The Dragons have origin three men of the match, Ben Hunt, in great form at the moment, but is he able to play a game as he did on Wednesday night again While the Sea Eagles have Man of the series? Turbo back. This will spark the side to victory i believe I think the line is a little bit big in this game, but Manly should still win. 

Suggested Bets: MANLY -6.5 $1.60

RAIDERS vs SHARKS

The Green Machine take on the Sharks on super Saturday, and this looks like it could be a very tight match. With the raiders getting back on the winner’s list last week against the Sea Eagles, it would have been a real boost for a side low on confidence. The Sharks have been slowly moving towards the 8 in recent weeks, and I think they can keep it up with a win over the raiders.

Suggested Bets: SHARKS $1.75

COWBOYS vs ROOSTERS 

The Poor old cowboys can’t catch a break at the moment. They lose their best player in Val Holmes to injury in Origin 3 & the half experiment hasn’t worked with Young Tom Dearden. The Roosters should be able to take advantage of this with Taupo out wide, causing damage. They have lost their young star as well, but it will hurt this old roosters side 7. They should win this in a high scoring game.  

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS -6.5 $1.70

STORM vs KNIGHTS 

In a very difficult game to match up as we don’t know how the story of Knights will match up with so many origin players in this game. If the Knights get Ponga to play, they are a chance to upset the best side in the NRL in the Storm. If not, I think the Storm win this game with a leg in the air. The Knight will be on a charge after this game & are a team to watch heading into the finals.  

Suggested Bets: STORM $1.50

WARRIORS vs PANTHERS

The Warriors are an improving side & they have been good over this Origin period. The sides have picked up some good players midseason. This week taking on the premiership favourites in the Panthers, they get to test out to see if the changes will help them play finals. The Warriors will lack some size on the outside compared to the Panthers, but they can let in a few points. The Panthers to win in a close one

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 12.5 $1.70

BRONCOS vs WEST TIGERS 

In another game where the two sides are looking for players for next year, the Broncos play the Tigers. The longer the season gets, the more the broncos look like a side that could be in for a good 2022. The Tigers can let in a lot of points in their games. I think this might end up a 30-24 game so check when the overs are in this game of being happy with just backing the Broncos 

Suggested Bets: BRONCOS $1.70

BULLDOGS vs RABBITOHS 

The Last game of the round is between the worst team in the league and one of the highest-scoring in the Bunnies. Watch Mitchell & Johnston have a field day here. Mitchell was close to the man of the series in the State of origin. The Bulldogs are just looking forward to next year where they get talent like Addo carr into their side & hopefully be able to find some halfs that can control the game. They need a couple more defensive forwards as well to stop the holes in their defence.  

Suggested Bets: RABBITOHS 13+/ Johnston try-scorer $1.85

State Of Origin 3 Preview:

QUEENSLAND vs NEW SOUTH WALES 

Well, tonight is the 3rd State of Origin & after NSW winning the series by keeping QLD scoreless in game 2, the Blues will be looking for a whitewash when they take on Queensland in game 3. This game was meant to be played in NSW, then Newcastle but Covid has had a change of plans and now for the 3rd time this series, the game will be played in Queensland.

The Queenslander’s will be looking to at least score this game & I have to say. I am happy with the changes they have made to their side for this game. Ponga at full-back, Holmes on the wing with Coates. & a big forward pack in the middle of the park with good players on the bench. This Queensland side is looking the best it has all season. For the Maroons to win, Cam Munster needs to take over the play from DCE. If they can let Munster control the game, this could be very close. 

NSW still have the best Backline they have ever had with Addo Carr Mitchell Turbo & Too Mitchell, who, in my opinion, has been the best player all series. Turbo & Tedesco have been an unstoppable seven & it’s hard to see NSW not winning this game. But without the first choice half pairing, it opens the door for the Maroons. 

With all that, I think this will be the closest game of the series. Turbo Mitchell & Teddy are all a chance of winning the series, but I have to pick Mitchell. He has been close to the best player in both games. In this game, I think NSW will still win, but it’s QLD best chance to win one, so Munster for Man of the match is my bet on that side. Valentine Holmes is my pick for the First try for Queensland. He loves it on the win in Origin & has always put in a great performance for Queensland.

Round 17 Preview:

RAIDERS vs SEA EAGLES

The first game of round 17 is between the Raiders and the Sea Eagles. This manly side will be a real chance of making the Grand Final if they keep on playing like this Turbo has been fantastic DCE, and the boys in the middle are doing all the little things well. They control the ball, the game, and that is why the scoreboard has been in their favour the last few games. However, the Raiders are in trouble. They are a middle of the road team that needs to find a couple of sparks at the end of the year. 

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES -4.5 $1.60

BUNNIES vs COWBOYS

Friday night, we have the Bunnies taking on the Cowboys & with the origin stars not playing this round, the Cowboys team has been hit hard. Yes, the Bunnies have many players in origin, but they have a great backup. The Cowboys players are more important to the team. With the line being +18.5 in the Cowboys favour at the moment, that could be a little big for my liking, but I see this as a high scoring game. 

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES -6.5 / OV 48.5 $3.00

BULLDOGS vs ROOSTERS

Typically Origin time is when the Roosters can drop a couple of games from having so many players playing. This year is a little different. They have a couple of players but nothing like the 6-7 they usually have. They take on the Bulldogs here, who are a side that they should still beat without the origin Stars. They have great wingers that will score with ease in this game. Still, keep an eye on the Bulldogs as many of their players are playing for their NRL future. 

Suggested Bets: ROOSTER -16.5 $ 1.60

WARRIORS vs SHARKS 

In the last game of this week before Origin 3 we have the sharks taking on the Warriors. I think the Bookies have this game wrong as the Sharks are my favourite. I like the way the sharks are playing at the moment, but I really think the Warriors will go close here. The Warriors have picked a couple of great players midseason & they are looking to push for a top 8 spot with these guys. They get Reece Walsh back this week & Matt Lodge from the broncos. With this, I will pick the Warriors at the line here in a very tight game.

Suggested Bets: WARRIORS +6.5 Over 47.5 Total Points $3.00

NRL Betting Tips Round 16 Preview:

ROOSTERS vs STORM

The first game of round 16 on Thursday night is between the Roosters & Storm are always cracking games. Two of the best sides of the last 5 years have put up some of the best low scoring games in the history of the NRL. This game is being played in Newcastle due to covid. I expect this game to be hard, tough and low scoring. Yes the Storm is piling on the points against everyone at the moment. This roosters defence won’t allow that to happen. 

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE UND 48.5 $2.60

WARRIORS vs DRAGONS

Friday night footy starts with a real 4 point game. The warriors fighting for a finals spot need to win this game to open up some space on the chasing teams. With Chad Townsend playing for the warriors now, this may help them, but it will take a couple of games for him to click with his half partner & get to know where everyone plays. Also with out Reece Walsh at full-back, the Warriors will need RTS to stop the Dragons & Duffy 

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 12.5 $1.80

PANTHERS vs EELS

The last game on Friday is a game that could be a semi-final later in the year between the Panthers & Eels. Both sides will be looking for a win & the task has just got a little harder for the panthers with Dally M favourite Nathan Cleary out with a shoulder problem. The other problem is how many of the panthers will back up from Origin. The Eels don’t have that problem with most of their players not playing Origin, they may just run out of this game a lot better than the Panthers. I think a small win is a more realistic option. 

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 1-12 $ 3.00

BULLDOGS vs SEA EAGLES 

The Bulldogs has made 10 changes for this weeks game against the Sea Eagles. I don’t know what you can make of this besides that the Bulldogs get a chance to look at some of their players to see if they are up to NRL standards. The main problem is will they get a chance to touch the ball. The Sea eagles scored 48 points in the 2nd half of their last game. They could do the same things here if DCE & Turbo play in this game. If not, they will still win but by a lot less. 

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES +16.5 $1.70

TITANS vs RAIDERS 

In a very difficult game to match up, we have the Titans & Raiders. Both sides have a lot of good players that are very up & down with form this year. With 2 massive forward packs and good halves, it could become down to better ball control or a shade of brilliance. The Titans have half of their forward pack backing up from Origin. This may make them tired at the end of the game & that could be the difference in this game as the titan defence can leak many points in a small time frame.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 12.5 $1.70

KNIGHTS vs COWBOYS

The Knights take on the Cowboys here in a game that the Cowboys will be missing their coach thanks to covid. The Knights also get Ponga back, and with that introduction, they are a 6-8 point better side. The Cowboys need to lift as they should have won a couple of their recent games & that would have made their spot in the 8 a lot safer than what it is now. I expect a tight game here with maybe a 24-20 scoreline  

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 12.5 $1.70

BRONCOS vs SHARKS 

In another game where one of the sides has had a lot of changes. These games happen a lot around Origin & it makes it hard at the time to punt on these types of games. I that case, I normally stick with the side with fewer changes. In this case, it is the Sharks, a side that is selling off half its team to begin a rebuild. With that in mind, these players are trying extra hard to win a contract with another NRL side & they have been getting the win because of this. Shaun Johnston has just signed with the warriors over the break but watches for more players to put in blinders in the next few weeks  

Suggested Bets: SHARKS 13+ $2.20

TIGERS vs RABBITOHS 

The Last game of the round is between the Tigers & Bunnies. The Bunnies are flying and have one of the best-left sides in the NRL with Latrell, Alex Johnston; they have scored over 70 % of their tries on that side. With that being said, I expect Johnston to score another try here tonight. The Gap in the price here is huge & the + 21.5 line for the tigers is very tempting as they aren’t as bad of a side as most people think but im happy to go with Rabbitohs to win 13+ 

Suggested Bets: RABBITOHS 13+/ Johnston try-scorer $2.25

State Of Origin 2 Preview:

QUEENSLAND vs NEW SOUTH WALES 

State of Origin 2 is tonight at the home of Queensland Rugby league in Suncorp Stadium & unfortunately, tonight may be one of the darkest nights in Queensland state of origin history. After a massive 50-6 smashing in the first game, Queensland needs to bring as much heart and hard work as they possibly can just to get close in this one. 

Last year the Queensland side was classed as the worst ever, but somehow, they won the series. This year I feel this team is worst than last years side by a lot & the NSW backline is one of the best ever assembled. In-Game on Turbo & Mitchell was amazing. They couldn’t be stopped, and I don’t think they will be again. Brian Too & Addo Carr are a chance to have a field and score multiple tires 

To night load up again on Turbo, Luai & Mitchell for the man of the match. They will all be of great value. Too for try-scorer & NSW to win this game by over 13+ points even take over 20 points. This could be a very disappointing series after tonight’s game.

BRONCOS vs RABBITOHS

The first game of round 15 on Thursday night is between the Broncos & the Bunnies. The Bunnies have close to the best left-side attack in the NRL. This is proven by the number of tries Alex Johnston has scored this year. The Broncos are a side that let a lot of tries in & with Coates out with an injury before last weeks game; it will be hard for them to stop this Bunnies side from putting a big score on them.

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES 13+ $1.60

SHARKS vs COWBOYS

Friday night footy starts with a real 4 point game. With the Sharks in 9th & The Cowboys in 7th Position. This win can help the Cowboys cement a spot in the 8. 

The Cowboys get back Kyle Feldt, who is a dominant force on the win for them. Tauglagi has been outstanding on the other side. They have one of the most exciting young backlines in the NRL. The Sharks are playing with a chip on their shoulder with Shaun Johnson being told he isn’t required for next year. The Cowboys should win this game at home, but it will be a tight affair.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 12.5 $1.80

PANTHERS vs ROOSTERS

The last game on Friday is a game that could be a semi-final later in the year between the Panthers & Roosters. Both sides will be looking for a win as the Panthers have lost their last 2 & the Roosters are sending off another champion of recent years. The Panthers had a lot of their Origin stars out last week, so after a weeks break, they will be ready to go, especially Too & Laui. The Roosters get the best full-back in the league back which will help them, but I still have the panthers winning this one.  

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS -6.5 $ 1.60

KNIGHTS vs WARRIORS

The unlucky knights take on the reinvented Warriors in the first game of super Saturday. I love the way the Warriors have been playing. Normally they have a high completion percentage & strong forwards in both defence & attack. This is helping them stay around the Top 8. With both Reece Walsh & Ponga coming back for both sides, this could go either way, but I like the warriors at the plus.

Suggested Bets: WARRIORS +6.5 $1.70

DRAGONS vs RAIDERS 

In a very difficult game to match up, we have the Dragons & Raiders. Both sides have a lot of good players that are very up & down with form this year. With 2 massive forward packs and good halfs, it could become down to better ball control or a shade of brilliance. That Brillance may come from the Dragons number 1 Matt Duffty, who has been outstanding all year, and he will be looking to play a good game as the raiders are one of the sides inlined to sign the Dragons full back for 2022

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 12.5 $1.70

STORM vs TIGERS

The Melbourne storm has done it again. Sitting on top of the ladder with the best record of any team in the NRL in the last 10 weeks, they have been scoring points for fun. Yes, the Warriors scored a couple of late tries last week, but the storm had put the gun in the holster. The Tigers, on the other hand, are getting better each week. This is a dangerous game for the storm as they’re taking on a side with some size & creativity about their play. They move the ball from side to side & if they can find a couple of holes, they could be in this one & with this line being 24 points, anything could happen, but the Tigers should score more than 12 points on the storm.  

Suggested Bets: STORM 13+ $1.50

EELS vs BULLDOGS

I don’t know how they did it on Monday, but the Bulldogs were too strong for the dragons and got the W. The Eels, well, they scored 40 on the Tigers last week, and they did it rather easily with a good all-around side & the normal stars like Gutho & Sivo doing their job. They should win this game against a Bulldogs team that I think had a fluke win last week. They are a bad side and need to play that type of football a couple more time before I tip them. 

Suggested Bets: EELS 13+ $1.50

GOLD COAST vs MANLY 

The Last game of the round is between the Titans and the Sea Eagles. The Sea eagle is the total opposite of the Titans. They are up and about winning games and have the best full-back in the game at the moment. It really is amazing how much they have changed. Now they have Tommy Turbo. Turbo, the man of the match of Origin 1, will be looking to find some gaps in the big forward pack of the Titans. But DCE is playing a lot better, and the guys out wide finish off every move they make. The Sea eagles will keep rising up the ladder. 

Suggested Bets: MANLY -6.5 $1.65

NRL Betting Tips Round 14 Preview:

COWBOYS vs SEA EAGLES

The first game is between the Cowboys & Sea eagles. How good was Tommy Turbo last night in the State of Origin? He scored 3 tries to win Man of the Match. The Cowboys will need to stop him & hope that their Origin stars will back up in this one. If they do look at the line, it will be a lot bigger than what I think the result will be at the end of the game. 

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES $1.50

SHARKS vs PANTHERS

Friday night ends with the Panthers taking on the Sharks. Like many of these games this week, you aren’t sure what players will back up after playing origin on Wednesday night. The Panthers players were outstanding Too scored 2 tries, Cleary had a nasty cut under his eye during the game & his halfs partner was first class in his first origin game. The Panthers win this game, but the Margin is any ones guess. 

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS $1.50

TITANS vs ROOSTERS

Typically Origin time is when the roosters can drop a couple of games from having so many players playing. This year is a little different. They have a couple of players but nothing like the 6-7 they usually have. This will help them when theY take on the Titans. The Trans supplied half of QLD forwards, and it would be a big ask for them to back up a couple of days later. Watch for the Rooster to open up the middle of the field and win this game.

Suggested Bets: ROOSTER -6.5 $ 1.60

RABBITOHS vs KIGHTS

Another game with two sides that has been impacted by Origin differently. The bunnies have a couple of the best players for NSW in Latrell Mitchell & Dane Cook. After a big win, if they play against the Knights, they could be getting a second win in a couple of days. With the form, they have been playing, and Alex Johnston scoring tries for fun, The Knights will have to be at their best to stop the Bunnies. Something they haven’t been at since they got a ton of injuries a few weeks back. Bunnies in an easy win. 

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES -6.5 $1.50

RAIDERS vs BRONCOS 

One of the hardest games to pick all weekend. We have the Raiders that can’t seem to gel-like they normally do & the Broncos who your not too sure what you are going to get. I have to say, looking at the line in this game, I think it might not be enough for the Raiders 9.5 is a lot of points to give up when both teams are very up and down. I could look very stupid after this game when the raiders blow the Broncos away, but I think the Broncos will be able to cover the line.

Suggested Bets: BRONCOS +9.5 $1.85

WARRIORS vs STORM 

How good are the Storm playing? They still have a fantastic side on paper even when the origin is on. This is thanks to a lot of NZ & PNG players in their team. They take on the Warriors, who should be close to full strength & with the way Welsh and RTS have been playing, they will be looking to cause the upset. The Cheese Brandon Smith has gone up a level without Harry Grant in the side & Hughes has been one of the best players for the Storm all year. If they get time with the ball, there is enough talent around them to get the job done.  

Suggested Bets: STORM WIN Over 46.5 Total Points $2.55

EELS vs TIGERS

This is a game that the Eels can make up some ground on the teams above them. The Eels don’t have many players in the Origin sides & if they continue to play rugby as a team, they can cement a spot in the top 4 and catch up a game or 2. First, they will have to beat the Tiger, who is a different side, with Brooks taking over control. They have some good young players, but it’s the forward pack that will need to step up tonight & I can’t see that happen against the big Eels forwards. 

Suggested Bets: EELS – 4.5 $1.60

EELS vs MANLY 

The Last game of the round is on Queens Birthday between the Dragons and the Bulldogs. Two sides that are a little different in the way they play and operate on & off the field. The Dragons have put up[ their best player for trade. Duffty has been a shining light for the Dragons. It really makes no sense as to why you would want to lose him. The Bulldogs, well, they just look like a team that is lost. They have signed a couple of big-name players that just haven’t lived up to the name they have developed. Now they are letting in a lot of points in each game, Dragons to win for the Queen. 

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS – 6.5 1.45

NRL Betting Tips Round 13 Preview:

BRONCOS vs DRAGONS

The first game of round 13 is on Thursday night, with the Broncos taking on the Dragons. Both sides only have a handful of players playing in Origin this year, but the side that it will impact the most is the Broncos. They lose Coates, who is their biggest offensive threat. The Dragons have a massive forward pack that could make this game an easy one for them, thanks to the inclusion of Dufty & Ravalawa back into the side. these two players, if fit, will be on the scoring sheet tonight.

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS-6.5 $1.70

TIGERS vs PANTHERS 

Friday night footy is between the panthers and tigers. With no less than 7 players on the origin side at the top of the table, the Panthers could be a chance to lose their first game for the year. If you look at the players, the Panthers are bringing into the side. They still name a great team with finals and grand final experience. The Tigers are mostly unchanged & are a tougher side than people give them credit for. If they can control the ball without Cleary in the side, they may just get the upset of the season.

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 1-12 $3.40

STORM vs TITANS

Saturday night sees the Storm taking on the Titans in a game I would have loved to see with both sides at full strength. Like the Panthers, the Storm has 6 or so players in Origin on Wednesday night. The Storm has been playing without a couple of these players for a few weeks already but still winning games by a big margin. They are full of NZ star players & have a great team on paper, making it hard for the titans to score against, let alone beat. The Titans lose 2 of the biggest forwards in the game in Tino & Fafita. with some talent in the backfield, they may score once or twice, but I don’t think they can score enough against this tough storm defence.  

Suggested Bets: STORM 13+ $ 1.40

KNIGHTS vs EELS 

The last match of the round is between the Knights & Eels at Mcdonald Jones Stadium. Hopefully, the homecoming will help inspire the Knights like it did last week when they knocked off the Sea Eagles. The Eels have a lot fewer players missing due to Origin than what we all expected at the start of the season. This will help them catch up on the Panthers and Storm, who sit ahead of them on the ladder. Gutho is still in the Parramatta side this week, which is a major advantage for them. he will be looking to prove the NSW selectors wrong and expect him to have a big game.

Suggested Bets: EELS -5.5 $1.50

NRL Betting Tips Round 12 Preview:

BRONCOS vs STORM

The first game of round 12 on Thursday night is between the Broncos & the Storm. The Storm has one of the best records ever in Brisbane. This should continue as the Storm ar $1.10 favourites. This Storm side is still without Munster Grant & Papi at fullback. With the Broncos having most of their side free to play, the 21.5 line looks like a big line, but the Storm is a much better side. The Safest option is to take the Storm to win by two tries.

Suggested Bets: STORM 13+ $1.50 ✅

WARRIORS vs COWBOYS

Friday night footy starts with a real 4 point game. With the Warriors in 9th & The cowboys in the 8 this game can cement them a spot before state or origin. The Cowboys lose JT, which is a massive loss for them, but they get back the exciting Tabuai-Fidow. The Warriors have the exciting Reece Walsh, who has totally change their season around. The Cowboys & Warriors will keep this tight & it will be who can control the ball best that will win this game.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 12.5 $1.70 ✅

TIGERS vs DRAGONS

The last game on a Friday is between the Tigers & Dragons. The Dragons still have a lot of players out, and with that has come a lot more gaps in the defence. They were lucky to only lose to the sharks by 1 point. Whit the tigers having a stronger side this week & with luke Brookes getting more of the ball each week, I think the Tigers will win this game as long as they can hold the ball 

Suggested Bets: TIGERS $ 1.50 ✅

PANTHERS vs BULLDOGS

The best team in the league against the worst, This game could be another 50 point game for the panthers. Cleary is playing like a Dalley M favourite, and each player on the side is doing their job to a very high standard. The line in this game is 34 points which are crazy. It will be interesting to see how they play with origin. 

Suggested Bets: Panthers win over 24 points $1.50 ✅

RABBITS vs EELS 

The match of the round is between the Bunnies and the Eels. The Bunnies have got back some great players like Latrell Mitchell, but I have to say I like the outsiders in this one, the Eels at the line. The Bunnies will have to stop Johnston on the left-hand side if they will win this game. The battle between 2 big forward packs will be great to watch & whoever wins that battle will win the game.

Suggested Bets: Eels +3.5 $1.90

RAIDERS vs ROOSTERS

The Roosters coming off a loss to the Broncos, will be looking for a better result against the Raiders this week. Last week they gave away a lot of repeat sets, and that cost them the game. They cant expect the raiders to have the same problems in defence like they did last week. The Raiders play with a lot of heart & both sides have the same mentality that any player can play any position, so this game won’t be a walkover by any chance, but the Roosters should still win. 

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS WIN Under 46.5 Total Points $2.25

SHARKS vs TITANS

The Sharks are a side that is playing nothing rugby at the moment. I find them very boring to watch and to go through the motions. The Titans, well, they look like a top 4 team in stages and then 20 mins later look like a bottom four team. There is a lot of talent for the titans to work with & once they work it all out, they will be a dangerous side. Titans to win the ball in the middle of the pack and win the game 

Suggested Bets: TITANS – 3.5 $1.90

KNIGHTS vs MANLY 

The Last game of the round is between the Knights and the Sea Eagles. The Knight is a side that is looking for the bye. They are sore, tired & it is really taking a toll on their side. The Sea eagle is the total opposite. They are up and about winning games and have the best fullback in the game at the moment. It is amazing how much they have changed. Now they have Tommy Turbo. DCE is playing a lot better, and the guys out wide finish off every move they make. 

Suggested Bets: MANLY -6.5 $1.65

NRL Betting Tips Round 11 Preview:

COWBOYS vs KNIGHTS

The first game of round 11 is in north Queensland between the Cowboys & The Knights. The Knights have hit a real rough spot now; this is due to injuries to key players & taking on better sides. The Cowboys are on the way up. Their forward pack is getting on a roll & the halves have improved their kicking game. They put up a great showing against the Roosters last week & in front of their home crowd I think they get the win in a close game  

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS 1-12 $2.88

WARRIORS vs WEST TIGERS

Friday night footy starts with an exciting game between the Warriors & the Tigers. I liked the way the Tigers played in the Magic round. Luke Brooks took control, and moving Adam Doueihi to the centres made them a more effective attacking side. If they can work on defence, they could surprise a lot of teams. The Warriors went down to the Eels last week & they had patches of great rugby, but I really like tigers @ the plus in this one. 

Suggested Bets: TIGERS +6.5 $1.80

SHARKS vs DRAGONS

The final game is between the sharks and dragons. After last weeks game, the Dragons not only had a player sent off but five were also on report. The Dragons have lost all these players for this game &, in some cases, a couple more. If the Sharks are ever going to win a game, it should be this one. With half their 2nds playing, they have players out of position or having limited games in 1st grade. 

Suggested Bets: SHARKS $ 1.50

TITANS vs BULLDOGS

This has the makings of being a game with a lot of penalties. Both these sides have disappointed me this year. The Titans lose games but not playing out all 80 mins. The Bulldogs look to be getting better after dropping a couple of big-name players, but they still can’t score a winning score & they have holes in the defence. They are working on it, but I don’t think they can stop the titans in this game. 

Suggested Bets: TITANS -6.5 $1.50

ROOSTERS vs BRONCOS 

Roosters Broncos is normally a game you look forward to watching, but this year it looks to be a very one-sided game. The Broncos keep leaking points every week. Manly score 50 on them the Eels 46 & when they win a game, the other team still score over 26 points. You can’t win games when you give up points like that each week. The Roosters love to score points & big Scores. Daniel Tupou & Tedesco will have a field day here. 

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS 13+ & TUPOU TRY

$1.90

RAIDERS vs STORM 

How good are the Storm playing at the moment? With a side missing Munster, Smith, & losing Papi in the first 10 mins the Storm still wins by 26 points & score over 40 points again this season. The Raiders, on the other hand, have a few more problems this week. Wighton, Papalii & Hodgson are all out. The Raiders play with a lot of heart & both sides have the same mentality that any player can play any position. So this game won’t be a walkover by any chance, but the Storm should still win. 

Suggested Bets: STORM WIN Under 46.5 Total Points $2.25

PANTHERS vs RABBITOHS

The Game of the Round between the Ladder leading & undefeated Panthers against the 4th place Rabbits. The Panthers have been outstanding this year, only allowing a hand full of points in each game while scoring at will up the other end of the field. The Rabbits have a hand full of stars, including Latrell Mitchell, Campbell Graham & Mansour. With these players coming back this week in what will be a tough game, They will be struggling with match fitness & which could easily be the difference between the two sides. 

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS – 4.5 $1.60

EELS vs MANLY 

The Last game of the Round is between 2 sides that are flying at the moment. The Eels & Sea Eagles are both playing great at the moment. The Battle of 2 of the best Full backs will be one to watch. King Gutho & Tommy Turbo are both so crucial to their side the winner of that Battle will win the game. Sivo & Furgo out wide has been hard to stop in recent weeks. The Seaeagle will need to keep the ball away from them. I think the Eels may win this game just, but with the Line being 6.5, I will take Manly. 

Suggested Bets: MANLY +6.5 1.85

NRL Betting Tips Round 10 Preview:

TIGERS vs KNIGHTS

The first game of the magic round is between the West Tigers & Newcastle Knights. Magic round is where all NRL games this weekend will be played at Suncorp stadium. It makes for a great weekend of rugby. The Newcastle Knights are the better side here, but they have been on a slide in recent games with injuries. This week, they have no ponga, which is a massive out for the knights, but they can still cause some damage with a stronger forward pack. The Tigers have moved Adam Doueihi to the centres. This could make them more potent in attack & be the move that wins this game for them. 

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 10.5 $1.90

SEA EAGLES vs BRONCOS

The Broncos play in the main game of Friday night against the Sea Eagles. With the way manly have been playing the last month, you have to think it will be an uphill battle for the Broncos in front of a big Friday night crowd. The way Tommy Turbo is playing since coming back from injury is genuinely amazing. He has totally changed this side & they can’t be stopped with him in this type of form. Xav Coates, the Broncos best player this year, has signed a contract to play with the Melbourne storm next year. It will be interesting to see how the Queensland crowd will react to him.  

Suggested Bets: MANLY -2.5 $ 1.45

BULLDOGS vs RAIDERS  

Saturday starts with a game between the bottom of the table, Bulldogs & a side that is struggling at the moment, Raiders. With the Bulldogs dropping Flannagan, the bulldogs are trying everything to get a win. The Raiders are also without some star players this week. Jordan Rapana has been good for them on the left edge, but with Josh Hodgson back, I still think the green machine will be too strong for the Bulldogs.

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS -6.5 $ 1.30 

SHARKS vs RABBITS 

This is a tough game to find a clear winner when you look at the stats. The Sharks are magnificent when they get Kennedy to run the ball from full-back. Last week that didn’t happen, and they were in trouble for a long time. They struggled to move the ball off their line. With the rabbits having such a big forward pack, they can have the same struggles this week as well. Alex Johnston will be looking to score a few more tries this week with Adam Reynolds back for the Bunnies  

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES -6.5 JOHNSTON TRY $2.25

ROOSTERS vs COWBOYS 

A great game to end the Saturday. The Cowboys are a team that is starting to hit their straps & in this one; they take on Roosters side that is still star-studded, especially in the backline & with young Sam Walker found a player that can steer them around the park for years to come. The Cowboys will have to stop them with a massive forward pack starting to gain full fitness from playing a few games back. It also shows just how good this side could be, especially with Hass & JT running hard in the middle of the field. I see a high scoring game here & think the Cowboys can cover the line.

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS +12.5 $1.80

WARRIORS vs EELS 

The best games of Magic Round are on a Sunday & this is Cracker to start off with . The Warriors are in the top 8 just but they take on a top 4 side here in the Eels. The Eels are sitting 2nd on the ladder have a great halfs combo. one of the best fullbacks in the league & wingers that other teams struggle to stop. The Warriors are building for the future & RTS will help this side but I can’t see it being enough for them to win here.

Suggested Bets: EELS -4.5 $1.65

STORM vs DRAGONS

Im not sure what to make of this game. The Melbourne storm is playing some of the best rugby this year, but you see Cam Munster Brandon Smith & Harry Grant when you look at the out this week. Wow, how would any other side handle players of that quality not playing in a side this week? The Dragons meet them at the right time here & with a couple of stars coming back, the storm may find this game a little bit harder than what they expect. The line is set at 14.5 & with the storm struggling to kick goals as well, which makes it a lot harder to chase down.

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS +14.5 $1.90

TITANS vs PANTHERS 

The Last game of the weekend is the best game The Titans take on the Panthers & I really can’t wait for this one. The Panthers keep setting record each week with the number of points they let through. For a side to only allow one try to be scored each week, it’s unheard of. The Titans have a chance to score many more points than most teams have this year against them. The Titans have played 30 mins of great rugby each game, but they also play 30 mins of poor rugby. If they do that against the panthers, they will take advantage. The Titans need to control the ball and field position. This is the hardest thing to do as the panthers have a great kicking game. The line is huge in this game so I will have a crack at the Titans.

Suggested Bets: TITANS +20.5 1.85

NRL Betting Tips Round 9 Preview:

STORM vs RABBITOHS

The first game of the round will be a cracker between the Storm & The Rabbits. The storms are still one of the teams to beat this year, and that was proven last week when they were level at half time against the Sharks only to put the foot down in the second half and win the game by 26 points. The Bunnies have a lot of injuries from last weeks game. They are missing star players Reynolds, Graham & Cam Murray. This will make it hard for them to not leave a hole in their defence for Munster & Hughes to find. The way Benji is playing for the Rabbits they will still be very strong in attack, but I have to stick with the Storm in this one  

Suggested Bets: STORM -2.5 $ 1.50

PANTHERS vs SHARKS

Friday night starts with the top of the table Panthers taking on the sharks. Is there any side in the league that can stop the panthers at the moment? They are playing great rugby in both offence and attack. Only allowing 8 points per game is fantastic, especially when you are scoring around 26 points your self. The Sharks don’t have that type of record at all this year, and it was proven last week that they could let in a lot of points as the Storm scored 28 in the second half alone. It should be the same type of thing this week, so giving away a little start should allow us to get a bit more value.

Suggested Bets: PANTHER -6.5 $ 1.35

EELS vs ROOSTERS  

Friday night ends with the game of the round. Unfortunately, this game has had a lot of the shine taken off it thanks to the roosters losing 2-star players to ACL injuries in the back end of last weeks win over the Knights. The Roosters lost Brett Morris, who was their leading try score & one of the best players to ever playing on the wing in the NRL. He will leave a big hole for the roosters, who seem to lose a player to injury each game. The Eels, on the other hand, keep on winning with a Gutho leading from the front with Sivo, Reed Mahony & Fergo helping support. They are a great side that should prove too good for the Roosters this week.

Suggested Bets: EELS $ 1.60

RAIDERS vs KNIGHTS 

This is a tough game to find a winner in. we have the Raiders that are having internal problems at the moment & missing key players. At the same time, The Knights have been playing like a tired side the last couple of weeks. They need a pick me up, but the Raiders won’t provide an easy game. Both sides are fighting for a top 8 spot which makes this a real 4 point game. The Left Edge of the raiders has been in great form & that’s how they will go for most of their attack, but with players like Best & Maygrove out wide, it will be hard for them to score.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 10.5 $1.90

WEST TIGERS vs TITANS 

One of the surprises of last week was how the Tigers played against the Dragons. They were tough and ended up moving the ball with a lot more flair. They looked a different side & were too good for a good dragons team. The Titans are a different story. They haven’t played out a whole game in the last month. They play 40 mins of great rugby then 40 mins of terrible rugby. They should have enough talent to defeat the Tigers this week & if they are going to become a top 8 side this year, they have to win games like this.

Suggested Bets: TITANS $1.50

 

COWBOYS vs BRONCOS

Super Saturday finishes with the battle of Queensland between the Cowboys and Broncos. A game that could go either way with the broncos winning against the Titans last week in a high scoring game & the Cowboys went down to the Warriors also in a high scoring game. This looks to be a match with a lot of tries in it. Both sides have good outside backs. If they can hold on to the ball, they could put on a show. .If you are looking for a couple of players to score a try during the game, Feldt & Coates are your men.

Suggested Bets: TOTAL MATCH POINTS OV 44.5 $1.85

WARRIORS vs MANLY

This game is exciting; The Sea eagles put in one of the best performances against the undefeated Panthers last week, confirming they are on a roll & will be pushing for a finals spot if all their players can stay fit. Last weekend the Warriors held on in a tight game against the Cowboys. This was thanks to a great first half where they put on a majority of their points. They can’t do that against the sea eagles this week as the sea eagles are a much better side & the way Tommy Turbo is playing, he could change the game himself in 10 mins.

Suggested Bets: MANLY – 5.5 $1.90

DRAGONS vs BULLDOGS 

The Last game of the weekend is the Bulldogs against the Dragons. The Bulldogs are still playing terrible rugby. They struggle to complete sets. Their kicking game is poor & they miss a lot of tackles in defence. The Dragons need to bounce back after a surprise loss to the Tigers. With Lomax out, the Dragons will have to score a lot more in the middle of the field Dufty will have to take a bigger role in the attack, which may open the door for the Bulldogs.

NRL Betting Tips Round 8 Preview:

RAIDERS vs RABBITOHS

The first game of the round will be a cracker between the Rabbits & Raiders. The Bunnies are finding ways to win. They are very high scoring & this is helping them. Their defence needs a bit of work as they let in 36 points last week against the Titans. The Raiders lost to the Cowboys last week thanks to a lot of mistakes and incomplete sets. They need to complete the sets and find a much better kicking game to win this one.  

Suggested Bets: RABBITOHS 1-12 $ 3.00

MELBOURNE vs SHARKS

Friday night starts with one of the best sides in the league. The Storm is getting better and better after every game. The Combination of Smith & Grant is working a treat, and Munster & Hughes in the halves control the field. The Sharks gave the winless bulldogs their first win last week and will be looking to bounce back. They will find it hard against the Storm @ home, but the Storm having a short week will help a little bit.

Suggested Bets: STORM -6.5 $ 1.35

TITANS vs BRISBANE  

Friday night ends with the battle of Queensland between the Broncos & The Titans. The titans have been outstanding for 60 mins the last couple of weeks, David Fifita was terrific, scoring a hat trick, but then Titans couldn’t stop the Bunnies in the last quarter of the game. They need to play out the second half a lot better. The Broncos are in the same boat & keep losing all their great young players. Getting back to basics will help them, but it won’t be enough this Friday night.  

Suggested Bets: TITANS -6.5 $ 1.60

PANTHERS vs SEA EAGLES 

What a way to start super Saturday. The Panthers are on top of the table & the team to beat this year. The Sea eagles have played fantastic rugby since getting Tommy Turbo back. He has changed the side & made them a much better team. The Panthers are a much better side now with Edwards at fullback, Crichton how had been playing fullback moved back to the Centres & he was unstoppable again. The Line of 14.5 is about right but if this had of been around 16-18 points i would of backed the Sea Eagles

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 1-12 $3.25

BULLDOGS vs EELS 

WOW, I can’t believe the bulldogs actual won on the weekend against the Sharks. They played better, but they still leave a lot of room for improvement. The Eels made a mess of the Broncos, as we all expected & if they are on so again, it could be the same scoreline ( 46-6) this week against the Bulldogs. The Eels have so many weapons Sivo, Fergo, & Gutho are all in top form & until Origin hits, they will keep on getting the job done for the Eels.

Suggested Bets: EELS 13+ $1.45 

KNIGHTS vs ROOSTERS

Super Saturday finishes with the Knights & Roosters playing in Newcastle. The Knights tried had against the Panthers last week, but they struggled with a lot of injuries. It would be a different story with a full side to pick from. There are great defensively & stopped the panthers for most of the game. The Roosters took control of the Dragons in their game. They continue to score a lot of tries & with that, they could tear this game apart. I see that knights will keep it close for a long time if they can control the middle of the field, but they will crack eventually. 

Suggested Bets: Roosters – 4.5 $1.75

WARRIORS vs COWBOYS

This game is exciting; The Warriors are building for the future, unloading a lot of young talent on their side. This includes young gun Welsh. Who was good last week, but the Storm found him out of position a lot of the time. This allowed the Storm to score a lot of tries. RTS was unsuited for most of the game playing out wide. If he can get into the game, they have a much better chance. The Cowboys are flying with a couple of wins in the last couple of games & in this 50/50 game. I have to pick them just.

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS + 4.5 $1.90

DRAGONS vs TIGERS 

What do you do when all else fails? The Tigers have sacked their coach. What can he do when he doesn’t have the cattle to win games. They are a developing side, the Tigers, and they have some high spots & some very low points in each game. Another side needs to complete sets and get back to basics. They need to bring other players into the game as only a couple of players pull their weight. The Dragons were a little unlucky against the Roosters getting a player sent off. Now with Ravalawa injured, they will have to get Lomax, Dufty & the forwards to do a bit more work

NRL Betting Tips Round 7 Preview:

PANTHERS vs NEWCASTLE

The first game of the ANZAC round is between the undefeated Panthers & the injury-hit Knights. It will take a lot for the Knights to stop The Panthers. Hopefully getting Starford To’a will help this cause. The Panthers have been unstoppable & I can’t see them losing here. They only just got over the line last week against the Broncos, but that could be a wake-up call. Watch for them to move the ball well to the wise men bring in Too & hopefully, with Edwards back, he will go back to playing fullback & Crichton will be playing out wide where he’s a lot more dangerous.

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 13+/ TO’O ANYTIME TRY $1.70 

TITANS vs RABBITOHS

Friday night is a battle between 2 sides that have been with a little up and down. The Titans have been great one week and shocking the next. The Bunnies only just got over the line against the Tigers. The one thing they have on their side is the best left-hand side in the game. The titan forwards could control this game if they can sort themself out with a good kicking game. Also, not Mitchell will hurt the Bunnies.

Suggested Bets: RABBITOHS 1-12 $ 3.00

PARRAMATTA vs BRISBANE  

Friday night ends with the Eels & Broncos. With the Broncos playing so well last week against the Panthers, there is real hope they can improve week by week against sides closer to them on the ladder. The Eels are 3rd on the ladder & smashed the always tough raiders last week. All signs are looking great for them as they had both forwards & star backs like Sivo getting over the line last week. They should get over the line again this week, but I think it will be closer than what people may expect.

Suggested Bets: PARRA -6.5 $ 1.50

SHARKS vs BULLDOGS 

I don’t know what to make of this game. The Bulldogs are the worst team in the league. They are doing things wrong that you learn the junior rugby. They give away too many penalties, cant score points & cant complete sets. The Sharks should win this game, but we will be watching to see how Townsend plays after signing with the Cowboys for next year this week

Suggested Bets: SHARKS 13+ UNDER 44.5 $4.00

COWBOYS vs RAIDERS 

The Cowboys have won 2 games in a row. Yes, it was against a couple of lesser teams, but the Cowboys started to play with a bit of spark and flare. The Raiders got smashed by the Eels last week. In a disappointing display, the Raiders will bounce back this week thanks to a big forward pack & a great kicking game. It will take a lot for them to win this game, but I expect them to be good enough.

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS 1-12 $34.00

TIGERS vs MANLY

ANZAC DAY tripleheader starts with the tigers and the Sea eagles. The Sea eagles got Turbo-back last week, and they looked like a top 4 side. It’s incredible how much one player can make the whole team play better. The Tigers have been good the last few weeks but not getting the results they want in a couple of games. Manly will win the first game of Anzac Day & will start to climb the ladder.

Suggested Bets: MANLY -2.5 $1.75

ROOSTERS vs DRAGONS

This game has everything you want in a massive Anzac day clash. Like the AFL, its a match between 2 of the oldest teams in the league & with the Roosters being 5th, the Dragons 6th. You expect a great it to be close. I still don’t like the Dragons’ shoulder so much of their game on a couple of players. The Roosters will be looking to help a young half pairing through a big game. For me, the roosters have too many big guns to win this one 

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS $1.50

MELBOURNE vs WARRIORS 

ANZAC day ends with the true Anzac game between the Storm & Warriors. It’s one of the best games every year in the NRL & always a packed house @ Aami Park. It’s the one game each year your Kiwi mate you go to the games with will not be in his normal purple; instead, he is in the White blue & green old school Warriors top. Watch for the NZ boys in purple to have a massive game Kenny Jesse & Brandon will be all looking to score on Anzac day. With this being RTS last Anzac game, he will be set for a big one as well. Storm is just too strong in this one.

Suggested Bets: STORM -6.5 $ 1.40

NRL Betting Tips Round 6 Preview:

PANTHERS vs BRONCOS

First game of the round starts with another one-sided match with the Panthers, who are close to the best side in the league, scoring points at will & not letting the opposition score. They have a points difference of over 100 points. The Broncos have only scored 68 points all season & I feel they will struggle to score two tries in this game. Panthers in a Cakewalk

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 13+/ TO’O ANYTIME TRY SCORER $1.70

KNIGHTS vs SHARKS

Friday night just got a lot more exciting. The Sharks have just sacked their coach in a plan that happened behind Josh Morris’s Back. The Sharks have played good rugby, but I can’t see why you would get rid of him so early in the year unless there is a fight between the players and Morris. The Knights keep on going with a couple of players coming in each week & a couple of players going out with injury. They can’t keep the same team on the field, a hard one to pick, Maybe the knights just.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM/ UNDER 10.5 $1.85

MELBOURNE vs SYDNEY ROOSTERS  

Friday night ends with a cracking game between the Storm & Roosters. I can’t believe the head to head market in this game. Storm $1.35 Roosters $3.25 is crazy, but the line is only 8 points. The Storm has played good rugby & against lesser sides have shown their class, but they take on another contender this week. The Roosters have young players, but they still have the best backline in the game. This will take you a long way. The Roosters halves are getting better & Sam Walker took the game over last week. He will need to do that again to win this one for the Roosters.

Suggested Bets: STORM 1-12 $ 3.00

TITANS vs MANLY 

The Titans have another chance to take a step towards cementing a spot in the top 8. The Titans forward pack is dangerously becoming one of the best in the league. They run through the middle of the ground so well. It will take a great effort from the sea eagles to stop them. Manly got their first win last week thanks to a DCE field goal. A little DCE magic will make this a close game, but the Titans are too strong of a team to let this one slip away.

Suggested Bets: TITANS -4.5 $1.70

RABBITOHS vs WEST TIGERS

Here we have the Rabbitohs against the Tigers. The Tigers had a massive day last week for a fallen champion. They lost to the winless Cowboys in a disappointing game on the field. The Bunnies are flying on the field with a 4-1 record and the league’s best-left edge. They will be scoring points again this week. Alex Johnston is a try-scoring machine. He will get a chance here to put more points on the board and lead the try-scoring table.

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES 13+ JOHNSTON TRY ANYTIME $ 2.00

RAIDERS vs EELS

This game has a game of the round feel. You have two big strong forward packs & some amazing playmakers in Jack Wighton & Moses. Who will be steering around their sides with a great kicking game and final tackle options. Ferguson & Sivo for the Eels will need to find the line for Parra to win. The kicking game of Crocker could be the difference in this one. This will be close and low scoring.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UND 10.5 $1.75

BULLDOGS vs COWBOYS 

Sunday has a couple of exciting games, including games the Bulldogs are still looking for their first win while the Cowboys got their first win of the year last week. They ran the ball really well, and the speed of The Hammer was amazing to watch. The Sad thing for Cowboy fans is he won’t be playing this week, but with a home crowd behind them & the Bulldogs averaging under 6 points a game, the Cowboys should get the win and start a mini-comeback from the bottom of the ladder.

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS $1.50

DRAGONS vs WARRIORS

The Dragons have turned themself into a side of misfits playing great fundamental football behind a good fullback & strong hooker play from McCullough. The number 9 for the dragons has been unbelievable, averaging over 50 tackles a game & only missing a handful of tackles all season. The Warriors will need to play great in the forwards against a solid forward pack of the Dragons. The warriors’ attack is set on how well RTS plays, but I don’t think he will be good enough to stop the dragon side.

NRL Betting Tips Round 5 Preview:

RABBITOHS vs BRONCOS

The first game of the round starts with another one-sided game between the Bunnies & the Broncos. Last week the Bunnies won by 38 points against the Bulldogs while the Broncos scored the first try against the Storm but then let in 40 points with the Storm running wild on their defence. There is a couple of things I like about the Broncos but not enough to think the Bunnies won’t win this by over 13 points.

Suggested Bets: RABBITOHS 13+ $1.30 

WARRIORS vs MANLY

Friday night starts with an exciting game between the Warriors & Sea Eagles. The Warriors are doing a lot of things I like to see. They are completing sets & not missing many tackles. They are staying in games for a long time. With a 2-2 record, I like the way the Warriors season is going & with a better 7, and they could be a real finals team. Manly, on the other hand, is doing everything wrong. They are missing tackles & not completing sets. They are a long way off being a competitive side.

Suggested Bets: WARRIORS – 6.5 $1.70

PENRITH vs CANBERRA  

Friday night ends with a cracking game between the Panthers & Raiders. The Panthers have only conceded 16 points in 4 games which is impressive. They have also scored 110 in the last four games. These are figures that are unheard of in the NRL. Canberra, a fantastic defensive team, will have to play their best game of the year so far to stop the Panthers. The Raiders, to me, look to be lacking something in attack as well, but this could be a low scoring game with two great defences going at it.

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS/ Und 40.5 $2.50

TITANS vs KNIGHTS 

Last week, the Titans had a chance to send a message to the Rugby world if they could have knocked off the Raiders, but they were found wanting at times. The Knights, well, they have just been unlucky. With another three key players injured. The Knights First aid ward would be able to beat a couple of sides in the NRL today. The Knights will struggle to field an entire side this week & if the titans don’t beat them this week, there is a problem with the titans game plan.

Suggested Bets: TITANS -4.5 $1.60

BULLDOGS vs STORM 

Here we have another game between a side that got smashed & one of the best sides in the league. The Bulldogs didn’t manage to score last week against the Bunnies. They have only scored 16 points in the first four games but have let in 122 points. The Storm, on the other hand, scored 18 points in the space of 11 mins last game. That was just one man Lil Papi turned on the jets and scored four tries & there was no looking back for the Storm. With Harry Grant back from injury, the Storm will be a better side, so watch out Bulldogs.

Suggested Bets: STORM 13+ / PAPENHUYZEN ANYTIME Try $1.75

ROOSTERS vs SHARKS

The Roosters are a great side & with a new half pairing, they will take a little time I find out how each other plays. Sam Walker is only 18 years old, and he has the best backline in the NRL at his disposal. The Sharks last week destroyed the cowboys, and with the confidence from that game, this game could be a little closer than some people may think. I still think the Roosters will win this easy, but the Sharks are getting better.

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS – 7.5 $1.90

TIGERS vs COWBOYS 

Oh, what do you do when you have two bad sides playing each other. Go for the one that is actually scoring tries. Both sides have given up over 120 points, but between them, they have only scored 100, with the cowboys only scoring 36 in 4 games. The only positive at the moment for the Cowboys is that JT is back. He is a man mountain & they will walk a little taller behind him. But I have to side with the tigers in this one. Adam Doueihi is doing some great things for the Tigers & stepping up in moments, but he needs to put a whole game together & I think this week, maybe it.

Suggested Bets: TIGERS -4.5 $1.60

DRAGONS vs EELS

The Last game of the round is between the Eels & Dragons. The Dragons are playing better rugby than a lot of people expected. Sitting 6th on the ladder with a 3-1 record is an excellent start to the year. They take on the 4-0 Eels at Bankwest, a place where the Eels are almost unbeatable. They are moving the ball to the other side of the field this year, getting big Fergo involved & he is back to being a try-scoring monster. Lomax & Dufty are still the best hopes in attack for the Dragons & the battle between Sivo & Ravalawa on the wings will be great to watch.

NRL Betting Tips Round 4 Preview:

PANTHERS vs MANLY

Panthers vs Manly starts off this weeks’ round of games in the NRL, which should be a very one-sided game. The Panthers have only conceded 10 points in 3 games while the sea eagles have let through 110. While they aren’t much better in attack on average, scoring 9 points a game. Nathan Cleary is back for this game, and they will only help the top of the tableside.

Suggested Bets: MANLY TOTAL POINTS UNDER 9.5 $2.05

BULLDOGS vs RABBITOHS

Good Friday, we have 2 games & they are both games that should be one-sided. The first is the rabbits vs the bulldogs. After beating the Roosters last week, the Bunnies will be playing with a lot of confidence. Their offence should be too potent for the Bulldogs defence, especially the Bunnies attack the left side, which is the best in the league. Johnston & Gagai will both score in this one.

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES 13+ JOHNSTON ANYTIME TRY $1.80

MELBOURNE vs BRISBANE  

Good Friday ends with a game in Melbourne between the Storm & the Broncos. The Broncos have had to stay in Melbourne for most of the week. Thanks to Covid, the Storm have taken on 3 of the best teams in the league & a 1-2 record is something that looks funny besides their name. I expect them to hit back this week at AAMI Park. The right side of the storm attack is a problem & with the Broncos making a lot of offloads, they could give the Storm a little run for their money. With the line being set at 21.5, That is a lot of points to provide the Broncos with a head start.

Suggested Bets: BRONCOS +21.5 $1.90

SHARKS vs COWBOYS 

WOW, I really feel for the cowboys. They had a good list at the start of the year and could have really scared a couple of teams if they got a roll-on, but after a lot of injuries to key men, they will need to play some great rugby just to stay in games. The sharks are in a little better position with a good backline that can score points, and the forward pack will be able to contain the Cowboys in this one. 

Suggested Bets: SHARKS -4.5 $1.70

TITANS vs RAIDERS 

Finally, we have a game that will be a great contest. The Titans & Raiders both have massive forward packs, and this game could be a battle of the big boys in the middle of the park. With the raiders having an extensive injury list, I feel the titans might be able to take it to them at home. With the Raiders favourite, we can take the Titans at the line in what I think will be a very close game & a couple of extra points up our sleeve. 

Suggested Bets: TITANS +4.5 $1.90

KNIGHTS vs DRAGONS

After watching the knights play last week, they are really starting to look like a team playing finals at the end of the year. Without Bradman Best, they still were perfect defensively, but the movement with the ball was what really pleased me. The Dragons have 2 great players, and last week, Dufty & Lomax played blinders. They will need to do the same this week to beat the Knights. 

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS – 2.5 $1.50

ROOSTERS VS WARRIORS 

Oh, last weeks game couldn’t end quick enough for the Roosters. They lose to their oldest rival & lose 2 playmakers for most of this season. The warriors have been very competitive in all their games so far this year, They play well for 70 mins, but the lapse in concentration for 10 mins has stopped them from winning more games. It’s hard to know how the roosters with go with a new 7 & 6, but you have to think with the star power in the backline, they will win this tight game.

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS $1.50

TIGERS Vs EELS

The Last game of the round is on Easter Monday between the Tigers & the Eels. The Eels are an excellent side this year & with Reed Mahony in career form at hooker, they can keep moving the ball around the park & get Fergie & Sivo scoring tries in the corner. The Tigers are letting through a lot of points & then when they get the ball, they struggle to make massive meters. Eels to win this one on Easter Monday 

Suggested Bets: PARRA TO WIN SIVO ANYTIME TRY $2.10

NRL Betting Tips Round 3 Preview:

PANTHERS vs MELBOURNE

Tonight we start off the week with a grand final rematch between the Panthers and the Storm. What a game this will be 2 of the best 4 sides in the league going head to head & the panthers have a lot of retribution on their minds after losing the Grand Final. They will have to do it without Nath Cleary. The Storm will be out of the Clive Churchill medalist from that grand Final in Ryan Papenhuyzen. The Storm will take this game up to the panther but I’m not sure if the right had defense can contain the panthers ($1.90) in a tight wet game.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM BY UNDER 8.5 $2.00

DRAGONS vs MANLY

The first game on Friday night is the Dragons & Manly. In a game that could have a lot of handling errors, it could come down to which forward pack is big enough to handle the pressure & hold tackles. The Dragons will be flying high from a win last week while Manly made a lot of errors last week and was never in the game against the bunnies. Not really the best game this round but I think Manly might struggle with the size of the Dragons forward pack

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS $1.75

SOUTH SYDNEY vs ROOSTERS 

Friday night ends with the Match of the round in my eyes. The Bunnies vs the Roosters in what could be a grand final preview we get to see how good the Roosters are this year and if the backline will be able to move the ball as they have in the last couple of weeks. For me the impact of Benji has been the spark the Bunnies need in the middle of each half  There left side attack is the best in the league & it will need to be at its best to break through the rooster’s defence I see the roosters being too good in this one and becoming premiership Favorites

Suggested Bets ROOSTERS $1.60

RAIDERS  vs WARRIORS

When I was looking into this game I was surprised by the market that the bookies put up. The Raiders have been good but not great while the  Warriors have been in both games they have played so far this year & with a 1-1 record that could easily be 2-0. The Warrior middle is a lot better than what people think & they are completing their sets so the field position is a massive plus for them. I think the line is the way to go in this game as it’s at 11.5 but let’s cover a 2 try game for just a little less

Suggested Bets: WARRIORS +12.5 $1.75

BRONCOS vs BULLDOGS

Another game that has 2 sides struggling up against each other. Both sides are making a lot of errors, not getting much time with the ball or completing sets when they do have it. The Bulldogs have been fantastic in defence making a lot of tackles but in offence, they are struggling to score points. the same can be said about the Broncos but they have scored a couple more tries. This game might just break open and be very high scoring Broncos to win at Suncorp but I’m not very confident besides Xavier Coates to score a try

Suggested Bets: BRONCOS $1.70

EELS vs SHARKS

Last week the Eels were fantastic against the storm with Sivo scoring in the final mins of the game to win it for them. Parramatta is on the second tier of teams fighting for 5th to 8th in my eyes but last week they proved that they could be fighting for a top 4 spot at the end of the year. the sharks almost came back against the  Raiders & with better goal kicking they could have won that game. The Eels are fantastic at Bank West and will be hard to beat in this one with a couple of extra days rest than the Sharks

Suggested Bets: EELS – 4.5  $1.65

TIGERSvs KNIGHTS 

How good is Bradman Best? The knights have found a player with him in the centres. This game is a chance for the Knight to show the NRL what they can do. The Tigers are a struggling side like many of us thought they might be this year. They are struggling to work as a team and sides are still finding a way to the line. The Knights  will  win this game easy as long as the pitch is in good condition

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS -6.5 $1.70

COWBOYS vs TITANS

The Last game of the round is between the 2 teams I thought would have a big year. The Titans are starting to roll & I’m sure at the end of the year they will be higher than the Cowboys on the ladder. The Cowboys I may have got it wrong at the start of the year after losing to the dragons they have made me rethink the whole game style they have as the big bull JT is injured with a broken hand. This Titan forward pack will be too strong in defence and attack especially with Kyle Feldt out

Suggested Bets: TITANS $1.50

NRL Betting Tips Round 2 Preview:

 PARRAMATTA vs MELBOURNE

Last week people were thinking about how would the storm go this year without Cam Smith. The Answer GREAT the boys will still be one of the teams to beat this year. The way they played in the first half stunned the bunnies & there was no catching the storm from that. The Eels played well in part in their game but it wasn’t until they got the ball out wide that they got scoring. This was the only problem with the storms game their right edge let through a lot of points Storm to win

Suggested Bets: STORM- 2.5 $1.60

KNIGHTS  vs WARRIORS

A surprise in round 1 was the way the Warriors played against the promising Titans. The Warriors controlled the ball and with some good halves play they open up the Titans. The Knight won their round 1 game as well with some good hard running up the middle of the field. I think the warriors should be favorites for this game after last week but I’m happy to take the price for them to win.

Suggested Bets: WARRIORS $1.95

TITANS vs BRONCOS

Friday night ends with the battle of QLD with the Broncos taking on the Gold Coast. The Titans let down a lot of people last week but there was also a lot to like about the side. They looked like a side that hasn’t played a lot of football together these things will disappear in the next couple of weeks. The Broncos on the other hand look good under Kev Walters and they will win a lot more games this year than last year. both sides can score a lot of points so watch for this game to go over 42 points

Suggested Bets: TITANS $1.50

BULLDOGS  vs PANTHERS

The panthers look every bit a premiership threat last week when they knocked off the Cowboys. This week they take on the bulldogs, who were in control of their game early last week but slowly faded in the tough conditions. The Panthers should run all over the bulldogs this week. They will limit the ball out wide for the bulldogs and Cleary will control the game with his kicks Panthers to win easy.

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS -6.5 $1.35

SEA EAGLES vs RABBITOHS

They lost in round 1 both sides will be looking to bounce back especially the Bunnies. their left edge got into gear in the second half last week and it looked unstoppable against the Storm. Alex Johnston will go close to winning leading try-scorer again this year. The Sea eagles on the other hand struggled against the roosters but they won’t be the last team this year that will get destroyed by the powerhouse of the NRL. hopefully, they will fight back this week but I can see the Rabbits winning this game easy

Suggested Bets: SOUTHS -6.5 $1.65

COWBOYS vs DRAGONS

The Cowboys take on the Dragons at the house JT built in Townsville. The Cowboys will have a packed house for the first time at this amazing-looking stadium & if all things go to plan they will have a win as well. They need to stop Dufty at full-back he was fantastic last week in the attack, he was a little 50/50 in defense. The Cowboys have the much stronger forward pack & watch for JT to run for 200m again

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS – 2.5 $1.70

TIGERS  vs ROOSTERS

Wow-what a show the Roosters put on last week They stamped themself as the team to beat with 2 players getting hat tricks & pumping the Sea Eagles by 40 points. The Tigers allowed the raiders to score 30 points against them & if they don’t improve this week it may be the same total of points or more. The backline of the roosters has an avg of 100 career tris per person which is unheard of in any of them gets the ball near the try line they will score.

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS -10.5 $1.90

SHARKS  vs RAIDERS

The Last game of the Round is between the Sharks & Raiders. The Sharks are coming off a win against the dragons which was expected. They will find the Raiders a lot harder this week as the raiders are still very good defensively & really well-coached. The Halfs for the raiders will control the ball & with one of the best forward packs in the NRL they should be able to run the ball up the middle with ease.

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS – 4.5 $1.75

The Betting Buddha’s 2021 Season Predictions & Round 1 NRL Tips:

Wow, the 2021 NRL season has come around quickly. It only feels like a couple of months ago the Melbourne Storm sent off the G.O.A.T Cam Smith with another premiership. Some of the teams outside the 8 last year have made some big signings in the off-season in the hope to break into the top 8. With the season starting on Thursday night let’s have a look at the Buddha’s predictions for the 2021 season. Where i think every side will finish on the ladder, who will be the big movers and shakers, who will win the wooden spoon & who will end the year as premiers.

 Betting Buddha’s 2021  Ladder prediction

  • South Sydney 
  • Sydney Roosters 
  • Melbourne Storm
  • Penrith Panthers
  • Canberra Raiders
  • Gold Coast Titans
  • Parramatta Eels
  • North Qld Cowboys
  • Newcastle Knights
  • Manly Sea Eagles
  • Canterbury Bulldogs
  • NZ Warriors
  • Sharks
  • Brisbane Broncos
  • West Tigers
  • Wooden Spoon. St George Dragons           

Top of the table – Rabbitohs

Souths ended the year playing some amazing rugby, with a great backline that has been improved with the signing of Josh Mansour. They now have a massive try-scoring threat on each side of the park. A spine with the names of Cook, Walker, Mitchell & the underrated Adam Reynolds will take you a long way. If they can stay healthy they will be playing off in the grand final at season end.

Bolters – Gold Coast Titans & North Qld Cowboys

One of these teams The Titans, we knew were setting up a side to climb the ladder in 2021. Signing Tino & David Fifita will make this a scary forward pack but they also picked up the underrated Corey Thompson & a fit AJ Brimson at full-back will make this one of the teams to watch in 2021. The Cowboys on the other hand is a side that I think will surprise a lot of people this year. Star players like valentine holmes have had a full pre-season, a new coach, & Hopefully, fewer injuries than last year will see this side gel together. Also playing people in their right spot like finally putting Valentine Holmes on the wing will help the cowboys post some massive scores this year.

Wooden Spoon – Dragons

It looks like the Dragons will have a very long season. I think their list is worst than last year where they finished 12th. They only got that high thanks to great performances each week from Dufty & Lomax. The loss of James Graham will hurt this side as he was the heart and soul of the team. If they can’t find a spark early in the season it could be very ugly for the saints by season’s end.

Round 1 Tips & Preview

STORM Vs RABBITOHS

The season starts off on Thursday night with a game that could be the Grand final in 6 months’ time. This has the makings of being a cracker & with the retirement of Cam Smith the Storm will be looking to honor him with a win in a tough close game.  If history tells us anything, you don’t back against the Storm in round 1 at Aami Park

Suggested Bets: STORM 1-12 $3.30

BULLDOGS  Vs KNIGHTS

Friday night sees an interesting game between the Knights & Dogs. The dogs are a totally different side this year and it will be interesting to see how they use gun players like Cotric & DWZ.  The Knights don’t have Ponga at full-back but with a little more time playing together compared to this Dogs side I think they will be too strong at home in a tight game.

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS $1.45

BRONCOS  Vs EELS

After a terrible 2020, the Broncos start off 2021 against a strong Eels side that will be looking to be a top 4 side again this year. The Broncos are missing their best player from last year in Staggs but they will bring a much better game plan with Kev Walters in charge. Still, I don’t see the Broncos stopping Sivo, Fergo & King Gutho. Eels to win this one in a canter.

Suggested Bets: EELS -5.5 $1.60

WARRIORS Vs TITANS

The Warriors are back living in Gosford for the second year in a row thanks to Covid. In their first game this year they take on the Titans who everyone will be watching thanks to a number of big signings. The Titans forward pack will be too strong in this offensively but it is in defense where we will see if this titans side will be a real contender or just a side hoping to make the top 8. This could be very high scoring if both sides get on a roll as both sides had weak defenses last year.

Suggested Bets: TITANS -3.5 $2.00

ROOSTERS Vs SEA EAGLES

Poor Manly losing your best player (yes Turbo is manly best player DCE fans) in a running contest after a night out. It doesn’t get any easier for the sea eagles with the Roosters in week one. What a side this roosters team is with a backfield full of international players & the best full-back in the game. The Roosters will want to start off the year with a good win and send a warning to  the other  NRL  teams

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS -6.5  $1.70

PANTHERS Vs COWBOYS

Last year’s runner-ups take on a side that I think will be much improved this year in the Cowboys. The Cowboys had a lot of injuries & players playing out of position last year but with Drinkwater at full-back, a healthy JT & Holmes playing on the other wing from Feldt they have a side that can score a lot of points. The Cowboys also let in a lot of points last year, with a new coach hopefully this will improve but it may take a couple of weeks. The panthers on the other hand will be up and running. Personally, I cant wait to see Lui take the next step, he was outstanding in the finals last year & I think he will give the Panthers that little bit of improvement they need to go one better this year.

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS – 4.5 $1.55 

RAIDERS   VS TIGERS

The Raiders start off the year against the tigers & I have to say I’m not a big fan of the Tigers this year. Their best player last year was the on-loan hooker, Harry Grant. Grant will leave a massive hole in this side. While the Raiders lead by Crocker & Jack Wighton will be looking to crack the top 4 this year after finishing 5th last year. They play great all-round rugby & have a nice touch of flair to their play that will see them play finals this year. The Tigers on the other hand I have fought for the wooden spoon.

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS -4.5  $1.50

CRONULLA Vs DRAGONS

The Last game of the Round is the worst game of the round between the Sharks & the Dragons. If one of these teams makes the finals this year I would be very surprised. I still think there is a lot of value in my selection in this game. The Sharks are a very tough team to play, they are always strong in defense they play the whole 80 mins & it is always a tight game. You never see the Sharks lose by a lot. With that in mind, for the Shark’s to be the price that they are, is very juicy in my eyes

Suggested Bets: SHARKS  $1.70

2020 NRL GRAND FINAL Preview & Betting Tips:

PENRITH PANTHERS vs MELBOURNE STORM

We’re finally here after one of the longest and most difficult NRL seasons in history.

We have the Grand Final we all wanted between the top 2 sides on the ladder.

The Penrith Panthers & the Melbourne Storm. Both sides have been outstanding all year with the Panthers still on a 16 game winning streak & the Melbourne storm having one of the best for & against in recent memory.

When you look at the sides you see talent everywhere, State of Origin players, international stars, Dally M winners & the greatest player of all time.

The one thing we don’t know is how the Panthers will handle the occasion, as the Panthers haven’t been in a grand final for 19 years, while the Storm was in a grand final 2 years ago against the Roosters & have now have been in 4 of the last 5 deciders.

Let’s have a look at how the 2 sides match up.

The Backs, well, this is a close one, both sides have unearthed some talent in the backs this year with Stephen Crichton for the Panthers having a career-best year as well as the Storm unearthing Justin Olam who with the Fox Addo Carr has made one of the best offensive and defensive combinations in the NRL this year. I think the Storm win this section for me, as the combo with their fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen, Ryan is a speed star & the way they have connected has given the Storm the most long-range tries in recent history. This means that they are dangerous from any part of the field and if the Panthers have a little hole it could cost them 4 points very easily

The Forwards, the heart and soul of a team. This is a funny one, I will have to give it all to the Panthers just on the strength of their second-rowers. Defensively both sides are fantastic and they both hold their tackles really well but it’s the panther’ second-rowers that is the real strength of the Penrith side. Liam Martin & Kikau have both had outstanding years.

If the Storm is not switched on, watch for one of these big boys getting across the line in the game on Sunday. If you look at the forwards on the bench & the impact they will make, you have to give it to the Storm. Players like Nelson Asofa – Solomona has done his stint, the State of Origin forward in Fanucine & the Melbourne Storm cult hero the Cheese Brandon Smith. This is where the Storm has the advantage in the forwards and they have 6 high-quality players while the Panthers have a couple of future stars.

Now The Spine, this is very even. You have the young stars in Cleary, Koroisau & Luai and they cover all the bases well, they are great passes of the ball, Cleary is a great kick and game manager & Koroisau runs from dummy half & split’s teams apart.

Luai I feel doesn’t get the credit he deserves as he has set up so many tries this year and you can see he has watched the greats like Shaun Johnson and Benji the way he models his game. The Storm, on the other hand, has the GOAT Cam Smith. this guy is amazing, he simply gets better with age and he still knows how to read a defence and has the confidence to try things no other hooker would do now that he is partnered with Cam Munster. The QLD 5/8 is a special player the way he runs up to the line and dummies, he can make the best players look stupid & Jerome Hughes is the perfect mix of both of them. He has made that halfback spot his own with his kicking game and is improving each week & his vision has always been of the highest standard. He is a player with a very high game IQ & that is something you always want in the biggest game of the season.

With that being said, I have settled on the Melbourne Storm winning this game. They haven’t given up too many points this year & with the experience of finals. The Storm has started fast in both their finals, while the Panthers have been very slow. I feel the game will be tough & tight and will end up being a final score of 22-16. With the Clive Churchill winner being Cam Smith if the Storm win

NRL Betting Tips Finals Week 3 Preview & Tips:

RAIDERS vs MELBOURNE STORM

Friday night we get to see who will be the first side to make it in the to the NRL grand final. The Storm takes on the Raiders in a game that should be a cracker. The Storm has been so consistent all year even playing through major injuries to star players they have been able to overcome it to continue on the merry way. The Raiders are so strong in the centre of the field Papali is fantastic maybe the best prop in the league. Jack Wighton is the key to be the raiders winning this game. he is in a try-scoring form & is the reason they have been able to win the last finals. The way he moves the ball around the field setting up the side to try and break through the best defence in the league. which is no easy feat. They will need to score 4 trys to beat the storm & I can’t see that happening.

The Melbourne Storm will be at full strength they have some of the best impact players to come off the bench like Brandon Smith, some massive forwards than other sides have struggled to stop like Tino, Nelson, & if State of origin player Dale Funicune is fit to play the side only gets better. Cam Smith could be playing his last game for the Storm but I don’t think it will be this week. The Greatest of all time is still playing good enough to be in the top 10 players in the league & I would love to see the best ever go out on top with the storm Winning the Premiership next week.

Suggested Bets: STORM -3.5 $1.78

PANTHERS Vs RABBITOHS

Saturday we have the game I’m most looking forward to in the minor premiers Penrith taking on the inform team of the finals in the Rabbitohs. The Panthers haven’t put a foot wrong in the last 4 months winning their last 16 games straight. Cleary has been the best player in the comp this year & should be the Dally M winner in the next week. He really has taken the next step this year but I think the most surprising thing this year in the form of Luai. He is a great mix of a good kicking game hard running towards the line, the little dummies & quick short passes really bring in the other players around him. Thanks to Luai, Crichton & Naden have really been able to show the skills they have & become major offensive weapons for the panthers.

The one major weapon they will be missing is Viliame Kikau. This is their leader on the field the way he runs towards the line. His present in defence& the way he has been teaming up with Luai on the left-hand side has proven to be the main scoring outlet for the Panthers. without him there the Rabbits will be a lot more conformable covering that side. The Rabbits on the other hand don’t have that problem at all, They have been working with the same players for the last 6 weeks & remain undefeated in that time. They average over 30 points in the last 4 games. They have one of the best hookers in the game in Dane Cook whos runs from dummy half split sides. Adam Reynolds has been good with his kicking game  Alex Johnston is on fire & should score at least one try in this game. Campbell graham is another to look at for an anytime try score market. This should really make for a fantastic final. I’m looking at a 20-24 scoreline in favour to the outsiders the Rabbits. But let’s take the +5.5 @ $2.00 just so we have a little extra point under our belt.

NRL Betting Tips Finals Week 2 Preview & Tips:

RAIDERS Vs ROOSTERS

Friday night we get to see the Grand final from last year, with the Roosters taking on the Raiders. The Roosters put up a good performance against the Panthers and almost won but time just ran out. while the Raiders came out of half time all gun’s blazing and that was the end of the Sharks season.

You would expect this game to be a low scoring game. 2 of the last 3 games having under 30 points scored & both sides focusing a lot of effort on team defence & controlling the ball. With a lot of firepower on the wings of both sides, it will come down to control of the middle of the field that will win this game. This will be aided by Jak Friend being back for the Roosters at hooker. Friend will deliver the ball well to the halves & always adds a lot to the Roosters defence.

The left side of the Rooster’s attack is where they score most of their try’s so expect one of the Morris Twins to score in this game. While the main point of attack for the Raiders is in the middle of the field but the average fewer meters & a whole try than the roosters. With this in mind, I have settled with the Roosters to go on and take on the storm next week for a place in the finals.

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS -3.5 Under 45.5 $2.88

EELS Vs RABBITOHS

Saturday @ Bankwest stadium we have the Eels taking on the in-form side of the finals in the Rabbits. Last week the Eels struggled to keep up with the storm in the second half, while the Rabbits continue to play exciting fast-moving football & scoring tries at will.

Parramatta has been a fantastic side for most of the year but as the year goes on they are starting to look tired & with there main try-scorer Sivo hurting himself against the storm. The Eels will have to find a new way to score, this will be very hard for them & is the wrong time of the year to lose your leading try-scorer, especially with the other side of the field being so lacklustre in the attack.

The Rabbits on the other hand don’t have that problem at all, They average over 30 points in the last 4 games. Alex Johnston is on fire & should score at least one try in this game. Campbell Graham is another to look at for an anytime try score market. This should be an easy win for the Rabbitohs and they could make it all the way to the grand final

NRL Betting Tips Finals Week 1 Preview & Tips:

PANTHERS vs ROOSTERS

The NRL finals starts off with a cracking game between 2 sides that a lot of people had playing off in the Grand final in a months time. The Panthers have been terrific winning the Minor Premiership & their last 15 games. While the roosters are looking for a chance at a three-peat & with a backfield that included a Dally M winner & 4  players with an average of over  100 tries each you have to think they will be hard to stop.

While the Roosters will be missing Jake Friend both sides are close to full strength & with the ability to rest players over the last couple of weeks they should all be close to 100% in this game. Cleary & Luai for the panther has made a fantastic combination in the halfs for the panthers with Cleary’s kicking game & Luai’s running & vision they have every base covered. they have the best defence in the league for a reason as well. they control the ball & the field but this is finals football and they will find it hard to do that against the roosters. If the roosters can limit the mistakes the bigger bodies of the roosters forwards could control the middle of the field. This will help them stop the left side of the Panthers attack which is close to the best in the league. Watch for a hard tough game this will go down to the last 10 mins & with that in mind the safest bet I would have to think is either team to win under 8.5 points or the under 40.5 but if I have to pick a winner I would say Panthers 16-12.

Suggested Bets: Either team under 8.5 $2.00

CANBERRA vs CRONULLA

Saturday starts with an elimination final between the Raiders & the Sharks. These 2 sides played last week in a 38-28 win to the Raiders but this game will be a lot different with both sides making a lot of changes as they had a chance to rest some tired players for this final. To start off with I don’t expect this game to be so high scoring there is no way 66 points will be scored again this week. With both sides valuing defence so much watch for this game to be under 42 points.

The Raiders will have a chip of there shoulder from what happened last year in the finals with them being so close in the grand final to winning it all they would want to get back to the big dance. They play so well at GIO stadium while the sharks still have no Shaun johnson which is a massive loss for them. They have a chance to score points with Ronaldo & the try-scoring machine Katoa but with the lack of a kicking game & the Raiders being so good at controlling the game I have to stick with the raiders in a 20-12 raiders win

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS  /UNDER 42.5 $2.40

STORM  vs EELS

The second game on this Saturday night is between the Storm & Eels. they have played against each other the last few years in the finals with the Storm winning last years account 32-0. While this game will be played in QLD the storm have made Suncorp their own the last few years with massive wins against the broncos & half the team being from Queensland this will certainly feel like a home game for Cam Smith & the boys.

Both sides have a great record in 2020 with the storm only conceding 14 points a game while scoring 27 on average with Cam smith leading the side you can see why the storm are heavy favourites for this one especially when you look at Parramatta’s last 5 games. They have struggled to score only scoring 16 points on average & conceding 22.5 Sivo & the Eels back are not getting the running meters they were at the start of the season. Moses & Gutho will need to play well to beat this storm side that rested their stars last week & they will be ready to get them another finals win & one win away from playing in another Grand final

Suggested Bets: STORM -6.5 $1.50

RABBITOHS  vs KNIGHTS 

Sunday finishes with the second elimination final between the Raiders & the Knights. This is the worst side possible for the knights to face in the first week of the finals as the Rabbits have to be one of the in-form sides in the league. With the Rabbits average winning margin being 30 points in the last 5 games they have also put on a stack of points. This included putting 60 points on the Roosters last week which is something that most rabbits fans would have only dreamed off before last weeks game. With that performance, their coach has been given the task of looking after the Maroons in state of origin.

The Knights, on the other hand, lost to the Titans last week by 30 points, not really the way you want to play before finals especially when you had most of the same side in. Pearce & Ponga struggled to get there hands on the ball last week & with the way Adam Reynolds has been kicking Cody Walker running ability & the try-scoring of Graham & johnson on the right-wing the knights could be in a lot of trouble this could be a lopsided scoreline but I do like the direction the knights are heading

NRL Betting Tips Round 20 Preview:

BRONCOS vs COWBOYS

The last round of the NRL season begins with and all Queensland showdown between the Broncos & the Cowboys. This game marks the end to the Broncos worst season on record & they will be looking to send Darius Boyd off a winner. The Cowboys will be a much better side next year as well with a massive injury toll stopping them from having the great season we expected at the start of the year. The Broncos will have to stop Kyle Felt & Valentines holmes to win this game but it will be hard to do. Kotoni Staggs moving to Five Eight will be very interesting as he has been their best player in my opinion.

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS $1.70

TITANS vs KNIGHTS

Friday night starts off with the knights getting a great test before finals against one of the inform teams this year in the Titans. The Titans have been fantastic the last 6 weeks scoring a lot of points from different plays & having a lot of different players standing up. They have all been fighting for positions to make sure they are there next year when they get a few big-money signing that will make them a contender in the next couple of years. The knights, on the other hand, had a great win last week thanks to PONGA starring now with Bradman Best & Edrick lee coming back just in time for finals

Suggested Bets: TITANS +6.5 $1.65

ROOSTERS  vs RABBITOHS

Friday night ends with a great game. Roosters vs Rabbitohs is a finals preview with both sides a chance of meeting each other in week 2 of the finals, with Dane Gagai back for the bunnies this will provide them with a great warm-up for the finals. The Roosters, on the other hand, are stacked with Tedesco, Friend Fifita & Cordner back they would be hoping to get out of this game with a big win and no injuries so they can play the storm next week with a full list available

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS -6.5  $1.80

BULLDOGS  vs PANTHERS

The Minor Premiers play their last game of the season on Saturday against the disappointing Bulldogs. The Panthers are getting better and better each week. The Style of play is great and with Jarome Luai playing amazing rugby he truly is an underrated player. The Panthers have rested Crichton & Kikau for this game that will soften up the left-hand side for them but I can still see them scoring a lot of points and getting the easy win against the bulldogs

Suggested Bets PANTHERS 13+  $1.80

SHARKS  vs RAIDERS

If the ladder stays like it is at the moment this game between the sharks and the Raiders will be played again as an elimination final next week. With the raiders are currently 5th & the sharks are sitting 8th 2 games clear of the 9th placed Titans. With the sharks missing Shaun Johnson & Sione Katoa with johnson being out for the rest of the year. The Raiders have made 7 changes with a lot of stars out which will make it hard for the raiders to win this one

Suggested Bets: SHARKS 1-12 $3.00

EELS vs TIGERS

Super Saturday ends with the Tigers taking on the Eels. The Eels will be looking for a win to move the right way into the finals Sivo will need to get more of the ball to help the Eels score a match-winning points tally. Gutho and Moses will need to find a way to finish off their sets a lot better than previous weeks. The Tigers will be finishing off a very up and down season with their best player being Harry grant a loan player but he is going to steer them around one last time but I think it won’t be enough for them to win this game

Suggested Bets: EELS 1-12 Sivo try-scorer any time $4.75

SEA EAGLES vs WARRIORS

What a year it has been for these 2 sides. with the sea eagles & Warriors suffering a lot of injuries & with Manly losing Tommy Turbo again with an arm injury. The Warriors deserve to win this game with all the heart the players have shown & for the commitment they have shown with all there players have been living away from their homes family & to finish off the tough year with a win against the Sea Eagles.

Suggested Bets:  WARRIORS  +3.5 $1.80

STORM Vs DRAGONS

The Last game of the season is between the Storm & the Dragons. The Storm has made 16 changes which have to be close to a world record. Still, when you look at the side the Storm will be putting out there is a talent all over the field & you know the storm will be great in defence & this side maybe a look into the future of how the side will look in a couple of years time without Cam Smith. The Dragons will still have a close to full strength side with Lomax and Duffty hoping to open up the storms in this one.

NRL Betting Tips Round 19 Preview:

BULLDOGS Vs RABBITOHS

Thursday night starts off with the bulldogs and the Rabbits. This is a game that could be very one-sided the Bulldogs are lacking so much in the forwards while the Bunnies have been playing great rugby.  they have been attacking and playing flowing rugby Campbell Graham & Alex Johnson have been great and scoring tries at will. They have been running the ball hard and strong & with Adam Reynolds controlling the ball with his kicking game, they should be able to in this by a couple of tries.

Suggested Bets: RABBITOHS -6.5  $1.60

COWBOYS vs PANTHERS

A long season for the Cowboys is coming to an end but first, they have to take on the top of the table panthers. The Cowboys have so much talent & in stages against the storm last week they looked like a very good side. The Hammer on the wing & Kyle Felt Valentine holmes they have a side that could score 30 points each week. What they don’t have is a controlling half’s player like that panthers have in Nathan Cleary. He has been amazing for the panthers and with the supporting cast around him like Too & the always improving Luke Martin they will keep the Panthers on top of the ladder until finals

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS – 6.5 $1.55

BRONCOS  Vs EELS

What an interesting game this will be. The eels lost to the Panthers last week & are looking half as good as the team they were at the start of the year. while the broncos I thought had every chance against the titans, they dropped the ball over the try line 4 times last week and only lost by 12 points. This has to be the game the Eels get a little bit of their mojo back or they might be wondering what happens to their season once they make finals and struggle against the top 3 sides.

Suggested Bets: EELS 1-12  $1.80

MANLY Vs GOLD COAST

Manly & Gold Coast are both sitting on the same points & unable to make finals so this game is all about pride & getting on a roll for 2021. They Seaeagle will be on a high after scoring 6 tries. The Titans defence was good the last couple of weeks they may be able to beat Sea eagles with fast outside backs, Corey Thompson & Aj Brimson they will need a big game from both of them to beat DCE at Lotto land a groud where the sea eagles always play their best rugby

Suggested Bets SeaEagles  $1.40

STORM Vs WEST TIGERS

The Battle of the best Hookers in the game. Well, maybe not but it could be and they all play for the storm. The West Tigers best player this year has been Harry Grant a Storm loan player. He is on loan thanks to the goat Cam Smith playing in his position & he is playing some of the best rugby he has ever played. He could be looking at another premiership with this Storm side. The Storm are looking the complete team at the moment with Munster and Hughes in the halves playing great big forwards & fast high flying back there isn’t much weakness in this storm side and they should win against the Tigers today

Suggested Bets: STORM -6.5  $1.65

ROOSTERS  Vs SHARKS

Super Saturday ends with the great game between the Sharks and the Roosters. The Sharks are a team that can be it’s own worst enemy getting players sent off the last couple of weeks. If they do this against the Roosters they will be beaten easily thanks to the morris twins & they team full of stars they have. Tedesco is having a rest before finals in this game which means we will look at them moving the ball more to the wings this week so watch for B Morris or Daniel Toupu to have a big game.

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS – 6.5 B morris to score a try   $3.00

RAIDERS   VS WARRIORS

Sunday starts off with Raiders up against the Brave Warriors. The Raiders will be hoping the Eels slip up so they can get into 4th position and the double chance. They can be a very inconsistent side but they are a side that the top 3 sides won’t want to have the double chance or face in the finals. Crocker Bateman & Wighton will keep them moving forward towards the finals while the warriors will keep on fighting but will find the raiders a little bit too tough

Suggested Bets:  Raiders  -4.5  $1.40

KNIGHTS Vs DRAGONS

The Last game of the Round is between the knights and the Dragons. Both sides had disappointing losses last week but the knight did it to themself taking out their best player Ponga before the game against the Roosters. With him back and the Knights still in the finals they will need to keep up the great defensive performance they have all year & start to show some smart quick short passes or a better kicking game if they are going to go far in the finals. The Dragons are looking for Lomax and Duffy to do all attacking for their side. they are trying out some young wingers & a little bit of planning for the future so I expect the knight to get over the line especially if they want to go deep in the finals

NRL Betting Tips Round 18 Preview:

 TIGERS Vs RABBITOHS

Thursday night starts off with the Tigers and the Rabbits. With the Tigers coming from the clouds to score 3 tries in the last 10 mins to win against Manly while the Bunnies went down to the Storm in a game that was played like a mini Final. The Bunnies need to keep winning to stay in a good position for finals while the Tigers are playing for pride as I don’t see them winning all their games & the sides above them losing theirs. In what will be a tight game the Bunnies should just get over the line.

Suggested Bets: RABBITOHS 1-12 $3.00

BULLDOGS  Vs SEA EAGLES

A nothing game to start Friday night the Sea Eagle will still be wondering how they lost a game after being 12 points up with 10 mins to go last week. The Bulldogs have made a lot of changes, some thinking towards next year other to see if they want to keep the player for another season. You don’t know how this is going to work with the bulldogs. It could spike them and make them play well or it could make it easy for manly to get over the line as they aren’t used to playing together defensively

Suggested Bets: MANLY $1.45

PANTHERS  vs EELS

What a game this could be. A battle between 2 rivals that are currently sitting 1st & 3rd but I think we can find a good winner in this. I think the Parramatta side have been struggling the last couple of weeks they cant put sides away. They were up by 16 points early against Warriors but the fighting warriors almost caused an upset. The Panthers on the other hand just keep on winning, keep on controlling the game thanks to getting half play & a good kicking game. With a back like To’o and Naden to finish off the play, they will be hard to beat here again

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 1-12  $2.80

RAIDERS vs DRAGONS

Win stadium host the Raiders and the dragons on Saturday afternoon & its funny to think that the grand finalist from last year has had such an up and down season. They have had patches of the year where the middle of the park has been fantastic while the back has been lacking then in some parts of the year the Back have been on top of their game. with Jack Wighton being amazing all year. The Dragons have been average, not winning games they should have won & looking great against a couple of good teams. Duffy & Lomax have been the bright sparks for them but the Raiders should win this one

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS $1.40

TITANS vs BRONCOS

The Battle of Queensland is on between the Titans & Broncos. I have to say the broncos are getting better & I think they can cause an upset here. The way Staggs has been playing you have to think he will score again for the Broncos in this one. The Titans will be looking for Don to cause the damage for them. Both sides are terrible defensively all year but I think the broncos are looking a little better the last couple of weeks & I fell they may be too strong for the Titans on Saturday afternoon

Suggested Bets: BRONCOS  $2.15

ROOSTERS  vs KNIGHTS

Super Saturday ends with the great game between 2 finals sides here in the Roosters & Knights. After the world / NSW went crazy for the return of SBW last week for him to only play 10 mins and look underdone. yes, he was a fantastic player but the hype was overkill. What do you expect from the NRL they did the same thing with Jarrad Hayne & he was just sitting on the bench for 60 mins but he had his own channel on fox sports. The Knights are playing good football but the injuries and the change in the playmakers will take its toll against the good sides. With Tedesco and the morris twins starting to fire up for finals we have to pick the roosters here

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS – 2.5 $1.50

STORM vs COWBOYS

Sunday starts off with what could be a danger game for the Storm. They are playing against a Cowboys team that is starting to get quality players back like Valentine holmes. The Storm is sitting 2nd on the ladder every week looking good playing great hard rugby thanks to the GOAT Cam Smith & Jerome Hughes. Cam Munster has been quiet the last couple of weeks but Addo Carr & Hughes have really stepped up and taken their game to another level. The Storm pack is full of hard running and tackle hungry forwards. They look set to be heading to another Grand Final & they will get a good hit-out before finals against the Cowboys.

Suggested Bets:  STORM -2.5 $1.30

CRONULLA vs WARRIORS

The Last game of the Round is between the Sharks & the Warriors, the warriors are all heart they have had the most testing season of any NRL side ever and they keep getting up and putting on a performance every week that is all heart & a reflection of their club and country. The Sharks are sitting in 8th looking to cement their place in the finals but with Townsend & wade Graham out this week I think an upset may happen so I’m on the Warriors to win thanks to heart determination & RTS

Suggested Bets: WARRIORS $2.45

NRL Betting Tips Round 17 Preview:

 PANTHERS vs BRONCOS

Thursday night starts off with the top of the table Panthers taking on the Broncos who are just looking to finish this season with one glimmer of hope for next year. The Panthers will be looking to open up their for & against to keep a space on top of the ladder from the Storm and the Roosters. The broncos only bright spark for me is Staggs he has been great and will be looking to have a great 2021 next year

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS OVER 12.5  $1.60

KNIGHTS  Vs SHARKS

A cracking game to start Friday night with the 7th placed knight up against the 8th placed Sharks. This is a real 4 point gaming going into the finals & I like the Knights in this one in a very close game they have Ponga and Pearce who have been working well with Kurt Mann all year. Defensively they have been tough normally keeping the opposition to a low score so I’m expecting this to be low scoring. It will take a big effort to stop the outside back s of the sharks but I feel the Knights will be able to do it

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS $1.75

STORM Vs RABBITS

Friday night ends with The game of the Round the rabbits take on the storm. The Rabbits have been amazing the last couple of weeks but so have the storm. They always seem to find a great player when one gets injured & Iassac Lumaluma looks to be a good player out wide for the storm. Alex Johnston is back for the Rabbits but the will be missing Latrell Mitchell & this could be the difference between the 2 sides at the end of the day

Suggested Bets STORM $1.50

BULLDOGS  vs TITANS

In a nothing game between 2 sides that will be looking towards the future, you have the Titans & the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs have been better the last couple of weeks but still, the lack of discipline is killing them. they give away so many repeat sets and penalty it ends up hurting them & makes them defend for most of the game. The Titans are getting better each week and they are playing rugby that is very attractive to watch. The back is very good at finishings & AJ Brimson is going to be a player if he can stay fit

Suggested Bets: TITANS $1.80

SEA EAGLES vs TIGERS

The sea eagles take on the Tigers in a 50/50 game but I feel there is one team I would like to be on here & that’s the Manly side . it all comes down to the game control DCE has with his side. He is a great kick and will always try to use up all there tackles to make sure the tigers have to run the ball 90 to score. With Manly defence that is hard to do. they are down a few players but in all honesty, the Tigers will need a big effort from Norfaluma & Benji if they going to win this game.

Suggested Bets: MANLY $1.65

RAIDERS Vs ROOSTERS

Super Saturday ends with the great game and the return of a man that every rugby player fears in Sonny Bill Williams. SBW will play for the roosters who already have a star line up with James Tedesco the Morris twins & now SBW  you have to worry about how they all fit under the Cap. The Raiders will be hoping to be steered around the park by Wighton who is in fantastic form and is really showing his class the last couple of weeks. The Roosters look to be too strong in this game & may move into a real contender because of SBW

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS – 2.5   $1.70

WARRIORS   VS EELS

Sunday starts off with the warriors taking on the Eels. The Warriors are still giving there all in what has been a long hard season for them but the Eels are starting to also feel the pinch. Blake Ferguson still hasn’t scored a try and its the middle and left side that is doing all the damage for them. It really is an amazing stat that the Australian winger hasn’t scored a try. Gutho & Moses have been great for the Eels and they are both looking for a team of the year prospects after putting together fantastic seasons

Suggested Bets:  EELS $1.20

COWBOYS Vs DRAGONS

The Last game of the Round is between the Cowboys & Dragons. in a game between two sides that wanted so much out of this season & have given so little for different reasons, you have to think this could be a big scoring game with the sides having firepower all over the field. Dufty, Lomax, Fedlt & The Hammer all could score a bag full of tries in this one as they are playing with no fear. The cowboys have the weaker defence but the dragons have let in a lot of points in games this year as well so the overs looks great here.

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS OVER 38.5    $3.65

NRL Betting Tips Round 16 Preview & Tips:

STORM Vs EELS

Thursday night starts off with the Eels taking on the Bunnies in what is a battle of 2 sides that should be playing in the finals this year. The bunnies are coming off a demolition job of the Broncos. While the eels keep the Storm to the scoreless which is no easy feat. The Eels have that spark in the half that means anything can happen from any part of the field. it is an amazing thing to watch when it is on fire but the last few weeks yes they have been winning it’s not quite there The bunnies looked unstoppable last week & can cause an upset here if they get the ball out wide to Alex Johnston

Suggested Bets: EELS -2.5  $1.60

DRAGONS  vs TITANS

Bit of a nothing game to start Friday night with the dragons & the titans. There is a lot of skill on show but both sides aren’t really playing for finals at the moment Lomax & Duffty have been great for the dragons while AJ had been great at full back for the titans who will be looking forward to next year when they get all their big signings in. that’s great and all but the game is Friday night & I have to back the dragons this week

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS $1.30

BRONCOS Vs ROOSTERS

Friday night ends with The Broncos & Roosters. This game could be nasty The Roosters looked like they were getting back to the side they were a couple of months ago & with morris back SBW waiting in the winds, this could be a major warning for all the teams they will play in the finals. Look for a massive win here for the Roosters & Morris to score a try or 2

Suggested Bets ROOSTERS 13+ Morris Anytime Try $1.70

WARRIORS  Vs KNIGHTS

You have to take your hat off to the warriors for everything they have done this year to keep this site going as they take on the Knights who have also been cursed by the injury bug with another playmaker going down with a season-long injury. They were looking great with blake green in the side it was really freeing up Ponga but with Green gone ponga has to play more like a playmaking full back now. This being the case they still should win but it will hurt them in the finals not having green

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS $1.40

SHARKS vs COWBOYS

The Sharks take on the Cowboys who are struggling for a win in the latter part of the season. The sharks on the other hand are putting on the points having scored over 30 points 3 times in the last 6 the other games they went close to good sides like Paramatta. The Cowboys lost there way without there star players and will find this game too tough for them but you can still guarantee Kyle Feldt will get a chance to score a try.

Suggested Bets: SHARKS $1.30

PANTHERS Vs TIGERS

Super Saturday ends with the Top of the table Panthers taking on the Tigers. The Panthers are flying with great ball control a strong defence & try-scoring wingers the panthers look like the team to beat @ the moment. The Tigers on the other are still struggling after a bad month where they lost 2 key playmakers and the heart and soul of the side. they are struggling to finish offsets and run the same meters.

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS – 8.5   $1.60

MELBOURNE   VS MANLY

Sunday starts off with the storm and the sea eagles. the Storm has had a tough month with an injury now with Brandon Smith missing. but they get back the 2 Cams which is massive for the storm. This will be a big test of the player fitness as they take on DCE and a manly side that has never liked the Storm. This will be a great game & to see how the storm play as they played with a lot of freedom without cam smith & they were scoring a lot more while still maintaining a great defence

Suggested Bets:  STORM+ Addo Carr Try $2.20

RAIDERS vs BULLDOGS

The Last game of the Round is between the Raiders & Bulldogs. In another one-sided game, I expect the bulldogs to be struggling for possession all game. The raiders have been average & will be looking for a conference boost from this game. This can be done by a good kicking game which has been missing the last few weeks. The Bulldogs will need to be better in the middle of the field out wide they will have to stop nick Cotric who is still in good try-scoring form

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS – 6.5 Nick Cotric 2 Tries  $3.95

NRL Betting Tips  Round 15 Preview & Tips:

STORM Vs EELS

Thursday night starts off with the Eels taking on the injury-depleted Melbourne Storm. Last week the Storm was fantastic against the roosters even without Munster & Cam Smith unfortunately they lost a couple of key players and the star of the game Hughes is in doubt for the game. The Eels are starting to look tired they still only move the ball to one side of the field & this game will be who wins in the middle of the Park. The storm is big and tough but Iunfortunetly think the Eels may just have it.

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE +6.5 $1.90

PANTHERS  Vs SHARKS

The Panthers take on the Sharks on Friday night & the way the Panthers are playing they will be hard to beat in this game. Sitting top of the table half a game. The Sharks are a very consistent side they gave the Eels a scare a couple of weeks ago & may the titans crumble in the last quarter of the game last week. the Panthers will still be going towards Naden side & expect him to score more tries & the Panthers to get this done quite easily in the end

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS -4.5 NADEN ANYTIME TRY $2.30

BRONCOS Vs DRAGONS

Friday night ends with The Broncos taking on the Dragons. The Dragons are playing ok at the moment Duffty & Lomax are really showing that the future is bright for the dragons The Broncos are still struggling with everything that is going on with the Broncos one of the only bright sparks is Katoni Staggs. The Broncos also have a lot of injuries & I find it hard for them to overcome this to beat the Dragons. This has to be the last nail in the coffin for their Coach

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS $1.30

RAIDERS  Vs TITANS

The Raiders take on the Titans in a game that I think will be closer than a lot of people think. The Titans are the best team in QLD at the moment and they are playing great rugby. if they didn’t have a player sent off last week I’m sure they would have finished closer than the end result. The Raiders had a confident win against the Broncos but it still wants as good as I feel it would be against the worst side in the league. The Titans at the line Or Canberra over 12.5 is the play here

Suggested Bets: TITANS +11.5 $1.90

TIGERS Vs ROOSTERS

The Tigers take on the Roosters, who will be looking to bounce back after a loss to the Storm Last week. The Tigers just got over the line against the Bulldogs in a high scoring game but they are still struggling to move the ball around without their main playmakers. The Roosters defence will be a lot better than what they faced last week but with Keary missing it could be a dangerous game. The Roosters just but the Tigers at the line might be a good bet as well

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS $1.40

RABBITS Vs SEA EAGLES

Super Saturday ends with the Bunnies taking on the sea eagles this will be a very close game with the Seaeagles being lead by DCE. he is one of the best game managers in the NRL but what the sea eagles need is some speed in the back. this is what the rabbits have a lot of especially with Alex Johnson. he has been in great form scoring 2 tries. They lest it very late last week and if they try to do this against the sea eagles I don’t think they will be given the same chances.

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES + 8.5   $1.70

BULLDOGS  VS WARRIORS

Sunday starts off a bottom of the table match between the bulldogs and the warriors. In a game that you don’t know what team will show up I have to think that the bulldogs can come out of this game with a win Meaney Smith & Hopoate get their best chance to run strong meters. The Warriors have been good in defence in stages but will need to get the ball wide to herbert & Hiku if they are to win this one .who ever takes on the game will Win this.

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS $2.20

KNIGHTS Vs COWBOYS

The Last game of the Round is between the Knights &Cowboys. The Knights are playing so good with the adding of Blake Green Kyle Ponga has gone up a step & with young talent out wide like Starford Toa & Hymel hunt The knights are looking well placed for a finals place. The Cowboys have has so many injuries but have found some talent like the Hammer, Hamiso Tabuai Fidow who recorded the fastest running speed of any NRL player ever. but they will have to let him get to the outside to use this speed. I think he might get one chance but that won’t be enough to win this game.

NRL Betting Tips Round 14 Preview:

STORM Vs ROOSTERS

Thursday night starts off with what could be the game of the year The Storm & the Roosters. This could again be the Grand final in a couple of months but hopefully, the Storm & Roosters will have some of their starts back. Smith Munster Morris are still missing but with talent all over the field, this will still be a cracker. The Storm looked fantastic without Cam Smith, the Cheese & Munster moved the team around with a lot more wide play while Munster is out The Storm forward pack is still big and strong and will keep them in the game a long way. These games have been very close for the last few years so we are taking Melbourne at the line.

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE +6.5 $1.90

PANTHERS  Vs WARRIORS

The Panthers take on the Warriors on Friday night & it looks to be a very one-sided game. The Control Cleary is having on games is unstoppable at times. The Warriors are playing better football since sacking their coach but they still are missing the spark that makes the warriors deadly. the Panthers on the other hand don’t have that problem especially the right-side attack which is close to the best in the league no matter who you put out there. Look for Naden to score more tries & the Panthers to get this done quite easily in the end

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS -4.5 NADEN ANYTIME TRY $2.10

EELS Vs DRAGONS

Friday night ends with The Eels taking on the Dragons. The Dragons are playing ok at the moment Duffty & Lomax are really showing that the future is bright for the dragons. but they are up against the Eels who still struggle to score on the right side of the field but when you have a great middle & Left in Sivo you don’t have to worry. Parra is looking tired at the moment like a couple of players are a little sore after a long season and no breaks But I still find it hard for the Dragons to win this one

Suggested Bets EELS – 2.5 SIVO Anytime $2.10

SHARKS  vs TITANS

The Sharks take on the titans who are starting to put together a couple of good games. The Sharks are moving along nicely with Ronaldo & Koatoa out wide they have a couple of serious threats but with the Titans getting the W last week AJ crimson & Don will do everything they can to get the Titans a second W.

Suggested Bets: SHARKS Ronaldo try any time $1.90

COWBOYS Vs RABBITS

The Cowboys are back in Townsville & they are looking to beat the Rabbits in this Saturday afternoon game. Feldt & Johnson are the keys for their side with both of them serious try-scorers if they can get the ball wide. Both teams are making a lot of mistakes & Missing easy tackles, the side that settles first will need to take advantage of their time in front as both sides can put on a lot of points. Rabbits should Win this game but it could be close or a lopsided win, either way, it wouldn’t surprise.

Suggested Bets: RABBITS WIN JOHNSON TRY   $2.30

RAIDERS vs BRONCOS

Super Saturday ends the laughing stock of the NRL broncos playing the Green Machine. The Broncos are having COVID problems sacking players the coach is massive trouble on and off the field & they are playing rugby that wouldn’t win a little league game. The Raiders should win this game they have the better side & are playing top 8 style rugby but they need to fix up the problem with Curtis Scott his area is costing them a lot of tries

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS -6.5   $1.60

KNIGHTS  VS SEA EAGLES

Sunday starts off &  we have 2 very tough sides against each other in the Knights & Sea Eagles. as i said last week the inclusion of Blake Green will be amazing for the Knight and it was proven last week when the Knights played there best game ever. This move could make them a real contender for the top 4. Ponga was great and with Blake, in the side, he was able to free him up and score more tries. DCE will have to control the ball to stop the Knights but they are still lacking with Turbo.

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS Under 42.5 $2.60

TIGERS Vs BULLDOGS

The Last game of the Round is Between the Tigers & Bulldogs. Its been a bad couple of weeks for the Tigers Losing the shining lights of their season in Walter & Grant. This has made the side lack the spark they had a month ago. The Bulldogs if the can play smart Football they can cause a massive upset here, The Bulldogs have the great firepower and lewis needs to find his kicking game again. This could be a game with a lot of repeat sets & if that is the case one side could be here for a long day.

NRL Round 13 Preview & Tips:

DRAGONS Vs ROOSTERS

Thursday night starts off with the Dragons taking on the Roosters. The Dragons are playing some good rugby but are being let down by the size of the forward pack in the middle of the park & the way they are finishing sets. Dufty & Lomax are the real shining lights for the Dragons but this week taking on an undermanned Roosters outfit they will still have to be at their best to get through the Roosters. Without Morris & dropping Flanagan I think this game will be a lot closer than the line suggest but I still think the Rooster will come out on top

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS / under 44.5  $2.6

MANLY  Vs WARRIORS

The Sea Eagles play the Warriors in the first game of Friday night rugby & it could end up being a one-sided game. The Sea eagles are a very strong side even with a couple of players still out. while the warriors who have also been struggling with filling players taking up some spots now & the release of Blake green to the knight who was playing really well for them. Manly should win this game rather easy & watch for the warriors to be in the game for a while then just lose interest

Suggested Bets: MANLY -6.5 $1.70

RABBITOHS Vs BRISBANE

Friday night ends with The Broncos the side everyone is talking about. Will this be the last game for their coach? is he really to blame for a poor side that isn’t playing well together? Are Darius Boyd & Milford done as Nrl players? well if they lose to the Rabbitohs all the answers here could be yes. The Rabbits will be a lot better now Latrell has a game under his belt Johnson on the wing is hard to stop & the forwards are starting to gel together. The Middle of the field for the Broncos needs to fire up & with Milford out & croft back the Broncos need to move the ball around clean to try and get the Rabbitohs off guard.

Suggested Bets RABBITOHS 1-12  $3.10

KNIGHTS  Vs TIGERS

This will be a great game the Knights & Tigers are two very good sides they both are sides that will be making up the bottom half of the Eight. which make this a game that is worth 4 points. The knight has just signed Blake Green to move into the Hooker role for them & he will make the knights playmakers better he is a great player & very consistent day in and day out. The Tigers lose Harry Grant who was their star player for the season so far. the main question is how will they play without him. to me, it’s easy back the side that has added to a great tough side of the one that has lost its key player

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS $1.60

STORM Vs BULLDOGS

The Storm is flying the only thing that could stop them is an injury to the Best Player ever Cam Smith. Well, guess what happened early last week the Storm champion went down with a shoulder injury. But who steps up the Storm cult hero Brandon Smith (the Cheese ) who is a great replacement for Cam Smith. The cheese is the NZ dummy half so he is up to this grade he has actually stared for the Kiwi in international Rugby so the storm with Smith Munster should be able to take out the bulldogs in this game & keep on marching to the top of the ladder.

Suggested Bets: STORM -6.5  $1.50

RAIDERS Vs PANTHERS

Super Saturday ends with the top of the table Panthers playing the Raiders. What can you say about the panthers besides wow they are playing amazing Rugby at the moment scoring tries at will? Cleary has to be close to the best player in the comp at the moment. This week they take on the Raiders that are coming off a win against the lowly-ranked cowboys a game I think they should have won by more. They are getting wins but they aren’t impressing anyone with their play. they need to find their mojo this week if they are going to press the panthers,  But I feel it may be a little too much for them

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS $1.60

TITANS VS COWBOYS

Sunday starts off with the battle of Queensland with the titans taking on the cowboys. this game is a battle of 2 sides at the wrong end of the ladder but will be a very entertaining game the Cowboys are a high scoring team Kyle Fealt always gets a chance to score a try or 2 . the same can be said about Anthony Don for the titans. both teams are a little dodgy in defence so we are thinking this game could be a very high scoring game around the 32-24 scoreline to the Cowboys.

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS OVER 42.5 $2.88

SHARKS Vs EELS

The Last game of the Round is Between the Sharks & Eels. The sharks got out of jail last week scoring 2 late tries to sink half of Queensland and the hapless Broncos. While the Eels were pushed hard by the Bulldogs in a game that really should have been an easy win. Parramatta looks to be a side that is starting to tire and needs a break they look like they may drop a game soon & this could be the week, They have a state of origin winner that still hasn’t scored a try all year & last week they kept going to his side & kept making mistakes. Some times you just have to keep doing what is getting the results Find Sivo the Big winger cant be stopped close to the line & that’s the way you will beat the bulldogs.

The Betting Buddha’s Round 12 Preview & Tips:

DRAGONS Vs BUNNIES

Thursday night starts off with the dragons and the bunnies. This is a game that I think can go either way. The dragons are starting to play really well with Lomax Dufty scoring tries the forwards making runs & Hunt finishing offsets a lot better than earlier in the year. Latrell Mitchell is back for the bunnies which move Johnston to the wing where he will cause a lot of damage & hopefully finish off the Bunnies wide moves with a try. The bunnies have really missed a finisher out wide & laterals try assist work.

Suggested Bets: SOUTH SYDNEY  1-12  $2.85

TIGERS  Vs WARRIORS

The Tigers play the Warriors in the first game of Friday night rugby & it could end up being a one-sided game. The Tigers are very creative with the Football in hand Harry Grant is really controlling the game for them from dummy half and you couldn’t be more impressed with how the young star is playing. The Warriors look tired they are making some more mistakes and slowly getting back to how they are playing the last couple of years. They can still score points but I see the tigers winning this in an easy game.

Suggested Bets: TIGERS -6.5  $1.50

BRONCOS Vs SHARKS

Friday night ends with The Broncos the side everyone is talking about. They are playing terrible football & everyone knows it after getting smashed again by the Storm on the weekend They have to show some heart against the sharks, a side that won’t go away & will play hard for all 80 mins. The good thing is the sharks are not a high scoring side like the Storm so this game can be a lot tighter & Brisbane have a chance to be in this game for longer if they can limit their mistakes. They will need to stop Koata out wide if they are going to keep this one close.

Suggested Bets: SHARKS 1-12  $3.10

TITANS  Vs ROOSTERS

The Roosters take on the Titans in a game that should be one way the Roosters will be missing Brett Morris out wide, he has been amazing out wide both defensively & offensively a real try-scoring machine. In comes Ryan Hall who was a try-scoring machine as well in the UK but is still waiting for his first try in Australia. This is his chance this week against the titans. The Titans will be looking forward to next year they have signed some great young forwards and that is really what they are playing for right now. If AJ Brimson plays this week watch for a very exciting young player.

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS 13+ $1.30

COWBOYS Vs RAIDERS

Cowboys Raiders won’t be a massive game in the round, actually, it could end up being a forgotten game if not for the in of the raiders new signing Corey Harawira-Naera the big forward will help the raiders be a lot better in the middle of the park & help them get a lot of meters that they have been looking forward from the forwards. The Cowboys have had injuries all year but the shining light has been watching some of the young players getting a go and The Hammer is definitely up to NRL level

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS +6.5  $1.75

SEA EAGLES Vs PANTHERS

Super Saturday ends with the top of the table Panthers playing the Sea eagles who are just in the 8. The Panthers welcome back some big players to their squad with Apisai Koroisau, Charlie Staines who score 5 tries the last time he played & Viliame Kikau who has been one of there best all year. The Sea Eagles are still missing Turbo and they will always be a little venerable. Clearly will steer around the Panthers to a win against the Sea Eagles

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS $1.60

EELS VS BULLDOGS

Sunday starts off with a game with the inform eels and the close to the bottom of the ladder Bulldogs. The Dogs are a side that can’t do anything right they leak a lot of points they struggle to score points & this game won’t is anything different Watch for Sivo to have a field day.  Parra is looking fantastic at the moment they are playing great football and with Moses back they can only get better.

Suggested Bets: PARRA 13+ SIVO A TRY  $2.00

STORM Vs KNIGHTS

The Last game of the Round is the Best in my eyes the Storm take on the improving Both sides are great defensively but the way the storm have been playing since Munster came back has been very impressive. The only thing I don’t get about this game is the line compared to the head to head market. Head to head the Storm are $1.25 to $4.10 while the line is only 10 points in other games around that mark the line would be around 11.5 -12.5 so one of these markets is wrong you just have to figure out if you like the storms attacking play to get on to of the hard Knights defence or the fact the knights will struggle without a dummy half as they are now on to their 5 dummy half for the season due to injuries

Suggested Bets: STORM -10.0 $1.90

The Betting Buddha’s Round 11 Preview & Tips:

EELS Vs TIGERS

Thursday night starts off with a game I think will be closer than the bookies have it with the Eels at $ 1.30 & tigers $ 3.25. I feel this game will be closed as the tigers are building a good side they play good hard rugby every week Harry Grant is the new star of the west with the faithful cheering his name as he left the field last week. For a young player only playing his first year of the game to control aside like he is it’s very impressive. The Eels lost to the under-strength Seaeagle in a massive surprise maybe it was the loss they needed. As they looked tired and just going through the motions.  the line looks to be a great bet in this Tigers +8.5 they are great defensively & look to stop Parras massive forward pack. I think Parra will bounce back from last week 1-12 @ $3.00 may be the best for you

Suggested Bets: TIGERS +8.5  $1.85

COWBOYS Vs SEA EAGLES

The Battle between 2 sides missing star players starts off Friday night. The Cowboys have sacked there coach during the week, a man that only a few years ago took them to the premiership. They are a very high scoring team on their day the cowboys but the problems in defence have caused the sacking of green also the problem with the in the half as they have lost all the key position players. Manly, on the other hand, surprised me last week beating the Eels DEC was great and they are playing some great Rugby without Tommy Turbo. This game should be tight but DCE will control this ball better than the error-filled Cowboys & Fonua blake being back is a massive tick.

Suggested Bets: MANLY $1.65

BRONCOS Vs STORM

Friday night ends with The Broncos taking on the Storms & with the way the Broncos are playing at the moment this game could be the final nail in the Bronco Coffin. The Broncos lost 48-0 last week. While the storm just keeps on winning & moving up the ladder. The Storm has an amazing record at Suncorp & I expect that to continue with the Storm being way too good for the Broncos. Look for the storms forwards to bound the middle of the park as the big boys scored a fair few tries last week and will be looking for some more meat this week.

Suggested Bets STORM 13+ $1.60

WARRIORS  Vs ROOSTERS

Just like the Storm broncos game, This game looks to be very one-sided the Roosters are coming off a loss last week to the Raiders that got a lot of people surprised as they were outplayed & poor defensively which is unlike the Roosters. The Warriors are looking tired they look like a side that has had enough of being in Australia & who could blame them they have tried their hearts out in most games but have fallen short against the big sides & when they play the big boys they lose by a lot. I don’t think this game will be any different

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS 13+ $1.30

SHARKS Vs DRAGONS 

Toss of the coin game here in a lot of peoples eyes but when I look at the last couple of weeks & my KPI for picking a winner one time stands out to me & that the Dragons. They Beat the Sharks only a month ago they have better kick & run meters fewer errors & missed tackles. I like the move of Hunt to dummy-half it helps him get involved more in the game & Norman can be a lot more creative. The sharks are a very good side I love the backline they have with Katoa, Ramien & big Ronaldo but I feel the forward pack isn’t as good as the Dragons & the kicking game of Johnson and Townsend hasn’t been on in the last couple of games

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS 1-12 $3.40

RAIDERS Vs RABBITS

Super Saturday ends with a great game in the making between the Raiders and Rabbits. The Raiders were great to get the points against the Rosters in the Grand final replay. The Rabbits again missing Mitchell will have to get a lot more out of the forward’s Burgess is missing his brothers in the Forward pack and Murry can only do so much. Gagai & Johnson will need big games for them to win but on what will be a cold wet night in the nation’s capital how can you go past the Raiders. I feel this game will be low scoring thanks to the conditions so at a great value we have found a double bet that I’m sure the Raiders can cover

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS -3.5 Under 42.5 $2.80

KNIGHTS VS BULLDOGS

Sunday starts off with the knights taking on the Bulldogs. The Dogs are struggling they are letting in on average 27 points again. you cant win rugby games while letting in that many tries. while the Knights have built this site on defence but have the offensive greatness of Ponga Bradman & Pearce to make them a threat at both ends of the field. They need to get a little better in attack only averaging 3 tries a game but this is an area that will start to come to them once they geat Lee back & start to work better together. With a good crowd in attendance, I’m sure, the Knights will get the job done & give the Newcastle crowd plenty to cheer about.

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS 13+  Under  45.5  $3.30

PANTHERS Vs TITANS

The Last game of the Round is the Panthers taking on the Titans in another one-sided game like most of this round we have a side that is a Premiership contender against a wooden Spoon contender. The Titans are playing for the new year right now they have a lot of great young talent they have signed or looking to sign while the time is now for the Panthers Clearly is playing fantastic football at the moment & the game getting quicker has really been the making of him this year. They love to attack to Naden & side. but with him moving to the centres he may not be the multiple try-scorer he normally is so we will back Crichton in this week.

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS 13+ CRICHTON TO SCORE A TRY    $2.80

The Betting Buddha’s Round 10 Preview & Tips:

RAIDERS vs ROOSTERS

This is the one game everyone was looking for once the draw came out, the grand final replay between the Roosters & Raiders. The Roosters have been fantastic since coming back from isolation & with a couple of star second rowers going down with season-long injuries they have been able to cover the lost & still be defensively sound & high scoring. The Raiders, on the other hand, have been brave as always but have lost key players like Josh Hodgson & with the competition being so close with the top 4 sides it could be the difference between them making the Grand final again or just missing out. They need to find a way to play & finish offsets so they control the ball & create more back to back sets. If they can do this they may be a chance in a low scoring tough game against the Roosters if not the Roosters may open op the raiders defence & run away with an easy win

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS -6.5 $1.55

STORM vs TITANS

The Storm opens up their new home thanks to Iso in the Sunshine Coast with a Friday night game against the Titans. The one thing you know about the storm is that they are the best-coached side in the League. This is proven yet again with the Boys from Melbourne sitting 3rd on the ladder after playing both grand finalists from last year. Defensively they have been really good like normal but in the attack, they can find another couple of gears. Hopefully, with Cam Munster coming back from injury they can get into some attacking form against the Titans who have been a lot better the last couple of weeks even defeating the Warriors last round. They still shouldn’t be much trouble for this Melbourne storm side.

Suggested Bets: STORM  +13 $1.50

BRONCOS vs TIGERS

Friday night ends with what I expect to be a tight game between the West Tigers & Broncos. The Broncos came back to a little form with a win over the Bulldogs while the Tigers went down to the Rabbits @ Bankwest. The Tigers put up a good fight they made a lot of tackles & didn’t really have the ball in their hand when it counted. When they did at the end of the game they started to close the gap. The Broncos finally got a win that was very much needed but they travel to NSW this week and that is a whole different kettle of fish as the Broncos have struggled to win in NSW in recent memory. Xman Xavier Coates is flying for the Broncos at the moment & will need to win his battle on the Wing for the Broncos to go back to back this week. This could be a very tight game and for the line to be set at 6.5 I will have to take the Broncos +6.5 or West Tigers 1-1.

Suggested Bets BRONCOS +6.5  $1.90

DRAGONS  vs BULLDOGS

6 Weeks ago these 2 sides played against each other, I tipped the Dragons thinking they would be the better side with the fine print saying the loser would be close to the worst side in the NRL. That game was won by the Bulldogs 22-2 & what has happened since is a totally different thing to what everyone expected. The Bulldogs have been terrible since that is their only win for the entire year. While the Dragons took the lost as a kick in the bum they needed & have now won 3 of their last 5 games. Which proves that I was right to think that the Dragons will be the better side but it took the Dragons to play Dufty & open up space on the outside for the young centres and winners to take the game by the horns. Hopefully, the Dragons can get the chocolates this time or maybe they are just the bulldog’s Bunnies

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS  -2.5 $1.50

RABBITS vs KNIGHTS 

I know this game is rather close in the market Rabbits 1.80 Knights 1.95 but I feel by the time of kick-off on Saturday afternoon the odds would of changes & the knights start favourites. The Bunnies have listed Cambell Graham & Latrell Mitchell as out on this weeks team list. While the Knights seem to be bruised and batted every week yet every week the get back up & put in a great showing the next week all over again. Kalyn Ponga has been fantastic for the night while Mitchell Pearce & Kurt Mann have given the Knight one of the best all-round 6-7-1 combos in the league in my opinion. adding Andrew Mccullough has taken them to another level. The Bunnies are making a little to many errors for my liking & seem to not make as many meters as you would like by with a good kicking game they have been able to stay in games & Johnson at fullback will add a lot of strength to the side but may hurt them on offence.

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS 1-12 $3.10

SEA EAGLES vs EELS

Super Saturday ends with the Eels taking on the Sea Eagles who just can’t take a break. Yes, some of the problems they are having are from their own stupidity. Others like the injuries to Tommy Turbo have just made Manly look like a shell of them selfs. Things don’t get easier for the boys from the beach, the Eels are on top of the ladder flying Sivo is scoring tries Brown is looking great at 5/8 Matterson & Lane in the forwards are causing teams a lot of trouble. it just a great all-round effort from the Eels & I think it continues this week against the Sea Eagles.

Suggested Bets: EELS -6.5 $1.65

WARRIORS vs SHARKS

Sunday starts off with the Warriors taking on the Sharks. Both sides have been very patchy in stages & in a game that looks to have a lot of firepower & little defence you have to think that tires will be coming thick & fast in this one if both sides can complete their sets. When you look at the Names in the back lines of both sides & the recent scores you will see that the Sharks will put on a lot of points with all there games going over the line & score lines like 24-56, 40-10, 22-40 in the last 3 games while the Warriors Avg 45 points in games they play in this year. Look for Koata Goodwin, Fusitu’a & Maumalo to all be close to scoring tries in this one

Suggested Bets: SHARKS -3,5 OVER 43.5 $2.70

PANTHERS vs COWBOYS

The Last game of the Round is the Panthers taking on the Cowboys who will be without 2 of their major pickups this offseason in Valentine Holmes & Scott Drinkwater. Drinkwater played 30 mins with a torn MCL which is an amazing effort but he will be missing for a long time now & the Cowboys will have to regroup & hopefully young players like Ben Hampton or the Hammer can step up to a side that everything is going peachy in the Panthers. The Boys from the hills are a real top 4 & Premiership side this year if they can keep everyone on the park & whenever someone goes down a new star arrives. This is proven with Charlie Staines scoring 4 tries last week in front of his mates but this week he will be watching from the sidelines. Either way, the Panthers will still be coming to his side & watch for Naden to have a day out this week

The Betting Buddha’s Round 9 Preview & Tips:

COWBOYS vs ROOSTERS

What a game the roosters played last week just going down to the Storm in Golden point. This week they take on the Cowboys who are one of the best-attacking sides in the NRL. They have no problem getting over the Try line but they struggle stopping sides from scoring against them Moving Valentine Holmes to the wing will help them become more well rounded attacking side & a little bit better in defence. I still see the Roosters winning this game their defence is amazing & even with a couple of key injuries they are still one of the teams to beat this year

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS -6.5  $1.51

WARRIORS vs TITANS

This is a battle between two sides that are at the bottom of the ladder but in stages are playing good rugby. The Warriors came from behind to beat the Broncos last week while the Titans lost by 30 against the Sharks but they looked good in stages. RTS is back for the Warriors & this is a massive in for the boys from NZ & may just be the difference between the 2 sides at the end of the day. both sides have some good scoring power in the back but the way Blake green is playing for the warriors controlling the ball and a good kicking game will see the warriors win this won but it will be a high scoring close game

Suggested Bets: WARRIORS  $1.80

RABBITOHS Vs TIGERS

I feel this game between the Tigers and the Rabbits is going to be a lot closer than the Bookies have it. Right now the Bunnies are $1.50 to win this game & they may run out winners at the end of the game but the West Tigers are playing good team football at the moment & it wouldn’t surprise me if the caused an upset in this game. Harry Grant Luke Brooks & Josh Reynolds are the most well-rounded halves in the league. They are a team that limits the error count Runs hard and finishes offsets well in the red zone. The bunnies have more talent & star power but they are also messing up some of the fundamental things which are never a good thing.

Suggested Bets TIGERS +6.5 OVER 35  $3.10

SHARKS  vs PANTHERS

I don’t really know how this happens but after a couple of good weeks the Sharks are back in the top 8 and playing some good football Goodwin has really added some fire power to this side & not getting Ronaldo back on the wing the Sharks have the firepower to be a very high scoring side. This week they take on the Panther who are sitting 2nd on the ladder & taking on the world. Cleary is playing great football but last week they will be missing To’o who has been close to there best Back the last year or so. This will be another close game as both sides are strong defensively but the Panther should win as they limit their errors better than the sharks

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS  $ 1.50

BULLDOGS vs BRONCOS

I know we are in the middle of COVID in Australia at the moment but I think the world may end for Queenslander if the Broncos keep playing like they are at the moment. The Broncos have been very poor they keep dropping the ball missing simple passes and not running hard enough inset. But the worst thing has to be the way Milford & croft are finishing the sets with kicks they aren’t going anywhere near the talented youngsters they have. The Bulldogs aren’t much better they average a try every 20 sets which are terrible & they let in 4 tries a game which is hard to win games with stats like this. so I’m sticking with the Broncos one last time but if they lose this week their coach may also lose his job

Suggested Bets: BRONCOS 1-12 $2.88

RAIDERS Vs STORM

Super Saturday ends with the game of the round & what a match it should be between the Raiders & the Storm. The Raiders have had the wool over the Storm in the last few meetings Ricky Stuart seems to know how to stop the storm slowing up the play the ball & getting through their defence. The Storm will be on a high after winning against the Roosters in a close game last week. the fought for the whole 80 mins & it showed that they are still a major contender for the premiership this year. Cam Smith proved that he is the GOAT playing 5/8 for most of the game & allowing Brandon Smith to play hooker which worked well & we will see Brandon improve the more he plays that position.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM TO WIN BY UNDER 10.5 $1.80

EELS VS KNIGHTS

Sunday starts off with 1st Vs 4th in what will be a tough low scoring game The Eels are sitting pretty at the top of the table still playing good football without Mitchell Moses thanks to Gutherson & Sivo teaming up so well on the left-wing. The knights need to stop this combo if they are going to be a chance in this game. They are the big improvers in defence & they have had a lot of practice as well averaging 420 tackles a game for a side that is in the top 4 is crazy. You expect a side that is in the top 4 to have a lot more ball than that not spend so much time without the ball & defending. They are going to miss Lee on the wing after just getting Bradman Best back. I feel the Eels will still find a way to get through the Knight line & win this in a close one.

Suggested Bets: EELS $1.60

DRAGONS Vs SEA EAGLES

Things aren’t going right for the sea eagles in the final moments of games The Sea eagles could be sitting at 6-2 if they got the rub of the green yet they are currently mid table at 4-4 & a real possibility to finish this round with a losing record. The Dragons took on a couple of very good teams in the Roosters & Raider and put in a good showing they will be looking to get back on the winners list like the Sea Eagles. Duffty has been fantastic for the Dragons & is finally getting a show at playing full back fulltime & is showing the world what he can do offensively but in defence, he is still a little small & can let in points which are never a good thing. The sea eagle will fight for the full 80 mins you know this every time they play & maybe will just outlast the Dragons this week.

The Betting Buddha’s Round 8 Preview & Tips:

STORM vs ROOSTERS

Thursday night we have a game that could be the semi-final preview, The Storm takes on the Roosters with some big changes to each side. The storm loses Cam Munster for a couple of weeks with a sore knee, While the Roosters have lost Sam Verrills & Victor Radley for the year as both players did their ACL in the last game. With Josh Morris & Tedesco back after missing last week the roosters will be a much-improved side. The Storm was much improved last week but with Munster missing, they have to change up the Halves but this may give the ball more to Brandan Smith which could be the making of a young star. The Line of 6.5 points is massive for 2 sides that are very tough to score against but I found a bet that gives us the extra points to work with for the same price.

Suggested Bets: Either side to win -10.5  $1.91

RAIDERS vs DRAGONS

The Raiders finally get to play at home in Canberra & it will be this home come that will help the Green machine get over the line against the Dragons. The Dragons are getting better but last week they proved they still struggle to be competitive against the better sides in the league. The Raiders are a better side, they were favourites for the premiership only a few weeks ago & they should get back on track after a narrow defeat to the Eels last week.

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS -2.5  $1.50

EELS vs COWBOYS

The top of the table Eels takes on the Cowboys after winning a nail-biting golden point game last week. With a new half pairing after the injury to Mitchell Moses. King Gutho will have to help out Brown & Field move the side around the park but with all the firepower in the backline & the Strong Forward pack, the should get the chocolates against the Cowboys. The Cowboys welcome back Valentine Holmes but I just don’t see it being enough to stop the Eels

Suggested Bets: EELS -6.5  $ 1.75

SHARKS  vs TITANS

Not a lot of people would have been thinking that this game between the Sharks & Titans will be much of a game. Both teams are struggling but I have to say the titans are starting to show a lot more on the field than they did early in the season. After the game the put in last week they could go back to back here against the sharks. The Sharks have a better Half Pairing, forwards and points for & against then the Titans & coming off a win against the Sea Eagles they will be full of confidence. This could be a very high scoring game but I feel the Line is very high the Sharks defence & control of the ball will keep this low score

Suggested Bets: SHARKS /UNDER 44.5   $ 3.00

WARRIORS vs BRONCOS

In a game where you have the tired-looking Warriors sitting in 14th place on the ladder. While you have the 15th placed Broncos who are coping it in the newspapers for their lack of intensity in defence & flair in attack. Milford & Croft need to find a way to bring in the key players for the Bronco if they are going to win this one. They dropped their leading try scorers for the last 3 years in Corey Oates to try to bring a spark to a side that is lacking a lot. The Warriors have a real chance in this one if they can tighten up in defence & let RTS be creative.

Suggested Bets: BRONCOS 1-12 $2.88

TIGERS vs PANTHERS

Super Saturday ends with the game of the day with the Tigers and the Panthers. The panthers are flying Too, Kikau & Nathan Cleary are playing the best they ever played. If they can keep this up they will become a major final contender. The West Tigers are playing great rugby behind Harry Grant. They have some of the best young players in the game. I like the way Talau played on the wing he finished off a very fast and powerful backline which included the very consistent Nofoluma & Leila But with the panthers getting Josh Mansour back they will be hard to stop.

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS $  1.50

SEA EAGLES vs KNIGHTS

In what could be a very interesting game the sea eagles take on the Knights with Bradman Best back in the lineup. The Seaeagle will be without Tommy Turbo again & last week proved how much of a hole a star talent like turbo leaves in this Manly side. The Knights put in the worst performance of the year last week against the Cowboys. It was a performance that a defensive side cant put together 2 games in a row. Ponga & Mitchell Pearce won’t let this happen 2 weeks in a row so I will be backing the knights in this one.

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS $1.75

RABBITOHS vs BULLDOGS

The Rabbits play the Bulldogs in the last game of the round. The bulldogs are Struggling to score at the moment. They have a low possession rate & a very low run meters stats, they just don’t make the meters a good side should make. They will find it hard to make meters against this Rabbits side. the Rabbits need to win this game & start moving up the ladder if they are going to be the finals contender we believe they can be Johnson & Mitchell will be looking to score against the this Bulldogs side that is leaking points

The Betting Buddha’s Round 7 Preview & Tips:

PANTHERS vs RABBITOHS

Thursday night we have a very interesting game between the Panthers & the Bunnies. The Panthers have been a little bit of a surprise to me & this was proven last week when they got the better of the Melbourne Storm. The Bunnies got a major confidence’ boost by smashing the Warriors. Their start players are starting to get back into the swing of things after a slow start to the season, but the way the panthers are controlling the ball thanks to Nathan Cleary & the run meters Kikau, Too & Crichton are making early in the tackle count are allowing them to play the game in the oppositions half. In a tight game, I have to go with the Panthers

Suggested Bets: PANTHERS $1.60

STORM vs WARRIORS 

One of the oldest sayings in sports is always back the team that just sacked their coach, but the Warriors take on the Melbourne Storm this week & it’s hard for me to find a way the Warriors win this game. The Storm hasn’t been playing well so far this year. Their defence is still top class but Offensive they have been very disappointing. A couple of key players seem to be playing for themself and not bringing their teammates into the game. A couple of extra passes & the storm could have won a lot more games. They should get a confidence boost this week but if they don’t beat the Warriors, they may be in a little bit of trouble.

Suggested Bets: STORM +12 $1.60

ROOSTERS vs DRAGONS

In what could be a very lopsided game the Roosters take on the Dragons. The Roosters are the best side in the league at the moment. The Dragons just won against the Titans but the Roosters are 20 times better than the Titans. The Morris Twins, Tupou & Tedesco are playing amazing. Teddy may be rested after taking a massive hit last week against the Eels. That shouldn’t stop the Roosters from winning this game by over 2 tries.

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS +12   $1.55

COWBOYS Vs KNIGHTS

Super Saturday starts off with the Cowboys & the Knights. The Cowboys have a lot of injuries at the moment with Valentine Holmes still missing & a couple of players nursing injuries they are really struggling to play there best rugby. The Knights are flying, they sit second on the ladder, defensively they have been fantastic & in the attack, they have been scoring tries from all parts of the field. They are missing Bradman Best who is their leading try scorer to a COVID breach but Edwick Lee should be able to cover the whole Best leaves.

Suggested Bets: KNIGHTS – 4.5 $ 1.70

BRONCOS  Vs TITANS

Not a lot of people would have been thinking that this game between the Broncos & Titans would have been a battle between 14th & 16th at the start of the year but both sides have been that disappointing. The broncos have been very inconstant Croft & Milford need to work together, improve the kicking game & get some help from the forwards that aren’t running the ball like we know they can. The Titans have almost let in 200 points they average 30 points scored against them each week but only scoring 10 themself, you can’t win games like that & I don’t see it changing against the Broncos

Suggested Bets: BRONCOS -6.5 /UNDER 43.5   $ 3.40

RAIDERS VS EELS

The Raiders have looked a lot like premiership favourites a month ago after beating the storm. Now after a couple of below-par games, they take on the Eels that put in a massive effort against the Roosters in a game that ended up a bigger loss than what they deserved. The Eels are at Bank West again a ground they play so well while it another trip for Canberra, who will be looking forward to playing in the capital in the next couple of weeks. What will the game last week will take out of the Eels? Will the Green machine fire up again against a great finals bound team. top me this is a close one & could come down to a drop goal or a penalty

Suggested Bets: Either team to win under 8.5 $1.91

SHARKS Vs SEA EAGLES

A Couple of injuries has made this a very interesting game. Any side that loses players like Tommy Turbo & Dylan walker is going to have a tough time to score points. DCE is going to have to control the game a little different & find a different way to get over the white stripe without Turbo. The sharks are coming off a win and normally have a great defensive side so they won’t be allowing may hole for DCE to run through. they do however continue to make mistakes and can give the opposition a lot of time with the ball. This game has the makings of being very low scoring but i have to stick with the sea eagles again in a close one

Suggested Bets: SEA EAGLES 1-12 $2.80

TIGERS Vs BULLDOGS

In the last game of round 7 puts The Tigers are up against the Bulldogs. Dogs are still struggling they can’t buy a win at the moment. they are slowing building some potency with DWZ, Crichton & Hopoate but they can all go missing at times. Lewis is great defensively but he needs to change up a few plays in attack to see if they can score more points. The Tigers put on a show early last week Brooks, Mbye & Harry Grant are all playing great roles with Grant making the most of his Loan spell with the Tigers by being high up in the Dalley M votes in only his first few games of NRL ever

The Betting Buddha’s Round 6 Preview & Tips:

The NRL season is starting to take shape but Round 5 showed that it can still throw up a couple of surprises especially if you control the ball & field position. This round has a lot of finals bound sides playing against each other so it should be very interesting.

KNIGHTS Vs BRONCOS

The Knights have built a very good side & with a new coach, they have become a side that should play finals later in the year. Defensively over the last few games, they have been superb averaging over 400 made tackles each game. in attack Ponga & Bradman Best lead finish off their sets very well. The Broncos on the other made some changes last week and they seemed to work for the first half of the game but once they lost control of the ball they went on to lose the game. Got to go with the Knights here but the Bronco will put in a better show than what they would of 2-3 weeks ago

Suggested Bets: Knights -2.5 $1.60

RABBITOHS Vs WARRIORS 

Bunnies vs Warriors is the first game on Friday night & it will be a very interesting game. With the Bunnies getting the win against the Titans last week, while the Warriors took advantage of the Cowboys having some injuries & running over the top of them in an impressive performance. Each week the Bunnies are improving their gameplay with all these stars finding their role in the team. Reynolds is still great at controlling the game & their forward pack lead by Cam Murray is getting better each week. The warriors are still very patchy but once Nikorima came on the ground that side completely changes but with a couple of offensive players still out I think the bunnies win just

Suggested Bets: Bunnies 1-12 $2.90

PANTHERS Vs STORM

Last week the Panthers were really good against one of the benchmark sides of the NRL in the Eels only just going down 16-10. They take on another top 4 sides here in the Storm who haven’t been playing anywhere near their best rugby but are still 4-1 sitting 3rd on the ladder and winning games while making a lot of mistakes. The Panthers & Storm are very similar in the way they play rugby they both have a good defence Run hard up the middle & try to allow some skilful halves & talented backs wear you down over the 80 mins. Who does it better? you will have to say the Storm you know what you are getting with them, with Cam Smith, Munster & a bigger forward pack they should be able to get the win over the Panthers.

Suggested Bets: STORM 1-12  $2.70

 TITANS Vs DRAGONS

When I look at this game I have to think its a battle for the wooden spoon, I’m not a big fan of either side & I think that the side that can hold on to the ball and not make stupid mistakes will win this one. The Dragons will be riding high after their first win of the year they played well & look a good side in stages of that game. I really like Duffty as a player but he always seems to be the whipping boy when they lose. The Titans, on the other hand, have picked up a very good player in Cory Thompson who should slip into the fullback spot very easily & could make the be a stronger side in both attack & defence, but that may take a couple of weeks for the side to get used to a new voice in a very key position.

Suggested Bets: DRAGONS $1.60

TIGERS  Vs COWBOYS

In what looks to be a very close game on paper the Tigers take on the Cowboys. The Tiger were good against the Raiders last week just going down to the Green machine in a tough game while the Cowboys didnt have anything go right for them losing key players and just running out of gas in the last 10 mins or so. I the young players for the Cowboys. The Hammer will be taking over from Valentine Holmes at full back & he looks like a very smart Fast player that could get involved behind a bigger forward pack and open up the Tigers. But how fit is that forward Pack JT looked tired while others were making to many mistakes. I feel this will be a high scoring game as both sides can score trys but also a little questionable in defence.

Suggested Bets: COWBOYS +3.5 /Over 38.5   $ 3.10

ROOSTERS VS EELS

Welcome to the game of the Round between the 2 inform sides of the league. The Eels are 5-0 they look amazing but take on the champs here who have been the best side in the league after Isolation. The Roosters played on Monday night after a COVID scare & look like it was more a training drill against the Bulldogs. The Eels won again on the weekend in a good game but didn’t win like we all thought they would & due to this we see the top of the table side @ $2.70 to win the game. both sides have great for & against, the Eels have only let in 40 points this year & the Roosters have only allowed 46 with both sides scoring over 130 points as well. Something has to give & after watching the Eels game last week their Defense was better than their Offense so you have to think they will keep this game rather low scoring. So why not take the Eels in a double while getting a very healthy start

Suggested Bets: EELS +8.5 UNDER 39.5 $2.80

 

RAIDERS Vs SEA EAGLES

Again another great game in this great round of rugby. The Raiders made hard work of the Tigers last week while the Sea eagle didn’t show up in the first half against the Broncos but still found a way to win. The raiders are close to full strength while Manly have a couple of heavy hitters out that will make them a little weaker in defence. Both teams have great playmakers & they will be wanting to set up their sides with extra sets and line dropouts. This game looks to be a real struggle between 2 great teams that should both be in the thick of things come finals time. I have to go with the raiders to win this game but it won’t be by much at all.

Suggested Bets: RAIDERS 1-12 $2.80

SHARKS vs BULLDOGS

In the last game of round 6 puts The Sharks up against the Bulldogs. The Dogs had a really funny week, they had a COVID Scare & a game on Monday night that they would rather forget losing 42-6 to the Roosters while the Sharks put in a terrible performance against the Dragons who were winless before their game. Both sides are struggling in a lot of areas. Missed tackles are up Run meters are down and both sides are struggling to get close to 75% let along 80% completion rate. The Sharks are looking a little better than the Bulldogs but this really is a flip of the coin game & if one of these sides can go back to basics they can win this game. The Sharks are more likely to do this so I will go with them.

The Betting Buddha’s Round 5 Preview & Tips:

Looking back at Round 4 just proved how even the competition is with the flag favourites Canberra raiders losing & the previously winless Bulldogs & Titans getting their first win of the year

BRONCOS Vs SEA EAGLES 

There is only 2 places difference on the ladder between the Broncos & Sea eagle but the difference in form since isolation is a totally different story. Brisbane have let in 90 points in the last 2 games against 2 very good teams, last week the roosters scored over 50 points against them & there defence will take a while to improve. They have moved a couple of players around to hopefully improve but they still miss the big strong forward pack that has been the Broncos side for years. The Sea eagles are moving the ball around well DCE has been great with his kicking game & they are getting a great even spread from all their players.

Suggested Bets: Sea eagles -6.5 $1.55

COWBOYS Vs WARRIORS 

The Warriors play the Cowboys in the first game on Friday night. I have to say I was a little disappointed in both these sides last week, The Warriors couldn’t put any points on the board against the Panthers & they really have struggled to score tries this year with only 24 points scored all year. Cowboys on the other hand can score points at will, they have scored 97 points this year. Their defence needs to improve if they want to become a finals team. If Jason Taumalolo plays this will be an easy win for the Cowboys … if he doesn’t then it will be a lot closer.

Suggested Bets: Cowboys -4.5 $1.80

EELS  Vs PANTHERS

The Eels are playing fantastic at the moment & are taking on a good Panthers side in what will be a great Friday night game. With a strong forward pack Great halves that control the game and kick the ball really well & strong fast outside backs you can see why the Eels are in a lot of peoples top 4 they are the complete side & will take a lot of beating from a Panthers side that is starting to put in a good showing week to week. If the Panthers can get their wingers to improve & run good meters early in the set they may have a chance, I feel like the Eels forward pack is too big and strong & they should run out winners rather easy

Suggested Bets: EELS  HT/FT double $1.70

BUNNIES Vs TITANS

When you look at the sides on paper this game should be a landslide win to the Bunnies & it may well be but the Titans now have a little bit of hope. Ash Taylor was a lot better last week, players like Don, Tonumaipea & Kelly looked to give them a spark as well. I really hope this will grow & the Titans will become more competitive but I just don’t see them winning against a side like the Bunnies, a side with origin stars & international players shouldn’t be sitting in 13th on the ladder with only 1 win. they will win this game but I feel the safest option is to only give away a small start instead of the current line of 12.5

Suggested Bets: BUNNIES -6.5 $1.50

KNIGHTS Vs STORM

This is the game of the round in my eyes The Knights were fantastic last week against the Raiders a side that just beat the Storm in an impressive performance 7 days earlier Bradman Best has been fantastic for them on the edge with Mitchell Pearce & Ponga the Knights have a couple of leaders that are major offensive threats. The Storm on the other hand haven’t been like the Storm of old but they keep winning. Once they figure out their game & sort out how to finish off a set in the last 10 m the NRL will have to take notice. This will be a hard low scoring game & as much as I’m sitting on the fence Sportsbet has options for either team to win under 10.5 points at $1.85 & that looks great for this game

Suggested Bets: Under 40.5 points Total Points $1.90  – Either team to win under 10.5 points at $1.85

RAIDERS VS TIGERS 

How good are the Raiders? Do they deserve to be flag favourites? in one word YES!!! but a week is a long time in sport with one average performance some people have jumped off the Raiders but I’m not one of them.  They are a very good side & got beaten by a good side that controlled the ball & didn’t make mistakes. The raiders are a team that doesn’t make mistakes often & against the Tigers this week they will be a totally different side. Watch for Williams & Wighton to control the game more than last week. Harry Grant, Brooks & Reynolds will be trying to stop but they couldn’t stop the Titans. That’s why I have to stick with the side that will be playing finals in the Raiders

Suggested Bets: Raiders -4.5   $1.65

BULLDOGS Vs ROOSTERS

The Bulldogs take on the Roosters after their first win of the year. The roosters were very impressive against the Broncos & the way they have looked the last 2 weeks they should be too strong for the Bulldogs. The Morris twins are playing amazing & after losing last years Dalley M player of the year in James Tedesco the side look just as good if not better. The Bulldogs changed players around & it worked they look a lot better controlled the game & played better in the attack. They will struggle against the Roosters this week but they look to be a side that can win a lot more games

Suggested Bets: ROOSTERS TO WIN

DRAGONS  Vs SHARKS

In the last game of round 5, we have the Dragons taking on the Sharks. I said last week that if the Dragons don’t win this game it will take a lot for me to tip them again & guess it right. The club is in major trouble they struggle to hold the ball, struggle to make good meters in the middle of the field. It will take a massive turn around for the Dragons to win this game. The Sharks  forwards pack will be too big and strong in this one

Suggested Bets: Sharks to – 6 $1.90

The Betting Buddha’s Round 4 Preview & Tips:

How good was it to have the NRL back?

Round 3 through up a couple of surprises like the Warriors almost having a perfect game, but it also showed what sides have the class to be able to adapt to the new rule changes & still play exciting attacking rugby.

BRONCOS VS ROOSTERS

Thursday night we have the disappoint Broncos taking on the Roosters, who were back to playing fast controlled rugby. The Roosters controlled the ball really well last week & with a rock-solid defence, I can’t see the roosters losing this game. Daniel Tupou, Tedesco & the Morris twins give you the perfect mix of offensive power & rock-solid defence. The middle of the field is also going to be hard to stop the Broncos are missing a couple of their best forwards & I expect the Roosters to just run the ball all night for a solid win. You don’t get any value with the roosters @1.25

Suggested Bets: Roosters -4.5 $1.50

PANTHERS Vs WARRIORS 

Friday nights first game is between to very interesting sides. The Panthers should have won against the Knights after missing 5 field goal shots by the smallest of margins. They had all the favours on Sunday but had to settle for a rare draw. The Warriors on the other hand didn’t make mistakes like they normally do & made the Dragons look like the worst side in the league. Do I think they can do it again? maybe but the Panthers are a much better side than the Dragons & the young Half Matt Burton his game knowledge, kicking skills & passing showed that he is a talent for years to come. Again we not much value with the Panthers @ 1.45 but I don’t expect this game to be blown out

Suggested Bets: Panthers win – 4.5 $ 1.72

STORM Vs BUNNIES

Last round the Storm came out of Iso looking a lot different. Cam Smith had a big beard, they didn’t control the game, some of the forwards & key players went missing. This isn’t what we come to know from the best side of the last 5 years. Watch for the Storm to be a totally different side this week Cam smith & Bellemy will have come up with a way to control the ball & field position to allow the weapons like Addo Carr, Papenhuyzen & Vunivalu more scoring chances as they haven’t been the attacking threat we are used to in the first 3 rounds. The Bunnies, on the other hand, are missing some power in the middle of the field & Latrell Mitchell at full-back isn’t working for me watch for Cam smith to expose this on Friday night

Suggested Bets: Storm HT/FT double $1.70

 

EELS VS SEA EAGLES

Parramatta has put in 3 fantastic games so far this year but they take on a very good Manly side this week. The Eels have only allowed 14 points so far this year but have scored 88 themself. Manly are no pushovers themself only giving up 10 points a game. this is going to be very interesting & very close. With the winner of this game being decided by what half can stamp his presence on this game, DCE & Mitchell Moses are 2 of the very best in the game today & if they can get field position I can see their side controlling the ball for a long time & getting the chocolates. Watch for Jennings & Sivo to be the main side Parramatta go to as Ferguson looked very sore & underdone during last weeks game

Suggested Bets: Eels 1-12 $3.00  – Either team to win under 10.5 $1.83

COWBOYS Vs SHARKS

The Cowboys have another game at their new home stadium in Townsville, this time against the Sharks. This game now goes very interesting thanks to the best forward in the game JT not playing. JT leaves a massive hole in the Cowboy side he runs for over 250m almost every game now & the cowboys need someone to step up and take the load he would normally take. The Sharks can try to take advantage of this if their forward pack was a lot better. I don’t think they can but I expect this game to be high scoring thanks to the skill of the outside backs & the fact the Cowboys are high scoring still let in a lot of points on the defensive end.

Suggested Bets: Cowboys to Win over 38.5  $2.90

RAIDERS VS KNIGHTS

How good are the Raiders? Do they deserve to be flag favourites? in one word YES!!! the Raiders put on a show against the Melbourne storm last week & you have to remember if a couple of things went right last year in the grand final we would be talking about the Green machine going for Back to back flags. Hodgson & Williams are so smart in the way they move the ball around & always have the defence on the back foot. They will again be a tough side to beat for the Boys from Newcastle. The Knights were amazing losing both playmakers in the first 10mins & still being good enough to get a draw against a good Panthers side. How much of last weeks game will it take out of the Knights? I think enough to allow the Raiders to get an easy win.

Suggested Bets: Raiders -4.5   $1.65

TITANS Vs TIGERS

The Titans cant catch a break this year & I don’t think it gets much easier this week against the Tigers. The tigers are a funny side in 3 games they have scored 76 points which is great but they have also let in 72 points. The Titans on the other hand have only scored 18 points in 3 games but let in 108. If you look at that stat alone you have to tip the Tigers & you have to think there will be a lot of points scored in this game as both sides are terrible in defence.

Suggested Bets: Tigers to Win & over 38.5 $2.37

DRAGONS  Vs BULLDOGS

In the last game of round 4 is on Monday between the terrible Dragons & the mediocre Bulldogs. Both sides leave a lot to be desired & I don’t know what to believe. did the Dragons have a bad day or are they really that bad? They did lose a practice game against the 2nds before losing to the Warriors. The Bulldogs can’t complete a set struggle to gain good meters per set & don’t offload the ball enough. The Dragons have so much talent around the park Ben Hunt & his origin forwards need to take control or this will be a long season for the boys in red & white. They get one more chance in my eyes but the loser of this game would be lucky to not finish the season at in the bottom 2 of the ladder.

The Betting Buddha’s Round 3 Preview & Tips:

Finally, the NRL is back & if you have been following Kruzey’s horse racing tips through isolation you would have been tipped into a few very nice winners.

Heres the Betting Buddha’s take on round 3 of the NRL.

BRONCOS VS EELS

Round 3 kicks off on Thursday night at Suncorp stadium between two undefeated teams in the Bronco & Eels. The Broncos have been fantastic in the first 2 games of the season Croft & Milford were starting to make a real partnership before the season stopped. Parramatta have only conceded 8 points in the first 2 games & with the last couple of games at Suncorp between the Broncos & Eels being close low scoring wins to the Broncos  (17-16,18-10)  I see this game going the same way.

Suggested Bets: Broncos 1-12 $3.10

COWBOYS Vs TITANS

Friday night starts with a Queensland derby between the Cowboys & Titans the titans have been very disappointing while the Cowboys had a lot positives in the first couple of games. After a couple of month of soild training, Valentine Holmes & Kyle Felt should have a field day against the titans. Also, how are the Titans going to stop Jason Taumalolo? This looks like it could be an easy win for the Cowboys.

Suggested Bets: Cowboys to win -6 $1.80

ROOSTERS Vs BUNNIES

Friday night Footy ends with the Roosters taking on the Bunnies. Who would of thought that the roosters would be 0-2 after winning the last 2 premierships? On paper, they still have a fantastic team but in the first couple of games they didnt run out the complete game. The bunnies on the other hand were saved by the outstanding play of Adam Reynolds & Cam Murray. Letrell Mitchell looked underdone but I expect him to be back to full fitness & determined to play a great game against his old team. The battle between Tedesco & Mitchell will be very interesting to watch & who ever can gain the most meters for there side will win this game.

Suggested Bets: Roosters 1-12 $2.80

WARRIORS Vs DRAGONS

The Warriors take on StGeorge from there new home at Central Coast stadium. How will being away from their family effect the way they play? could they get any worst? they only scored 6 points in the first 2 games while still being strong in defence. The Dragons looked good in stages against the Panthers but their defence needed a lot of work. Against a lesser side like the warriors the Dragons should be able to control the ball & will try to use Ravalawa & Lomax to score a lot of their points

Suggested Bets: Dragons to win $1.65

SHARKS Vs TIGERS

After 2 very tough games the sharks are sitting @ 0-2 and are lloking to get their first win on the boards against the West Tigers. The sharks need to improve their completeion rate from the first 2 games defensively they were still very strong & if Johnson & Townsend can start to move the ball behind the big forward pack they will win this game. The Tigers have a good mix of youth & experience Benji moved the ball well to Leliua & Nofoaluma’s side, Harry Grant looks to be a great player for the future but i see the Sharks being to strong defensively in a close one

Suggested Bets: Sharks to Win $1.75

STORM Vs RAIDERS

Only one team like to play at Aami park as much as the Storm & they are the Canberra Raiders so expect fireworks in the last game of Super Saturday.                       The Raiders have a better than 50% record at the ground & have won the last 2 times they have played there. The Storm are close to full strength & with stars all over the park they will be hard to beat again. During the time off i expect the storm would of worked on there passing & holding on to the ball as there were a lot of mistakes made by the players in scoring positions. The Raiders wont let Storm play the ball fast or slow up the play the ball. they had some impressive run meters in the first couple of games. This looks to be a cracker of a game, maybe even a Grand Final preview?  but how do you go against the storm @ Aami Park?

Suggested Bets: Storm 1-12 $2.80

PANTHERS Vs KNIGHTS

The Battle between two of the most impressive teams of the first 2 rounds both sides surprised a lot of people & are hoping to keep the winning streak going. The Knights moved the ball around the park with ease in the first 2 games but it was really Mitchell Pearces kicking game that caused them to control the ball. Mitchell was finishing off sets with a perfect kick & making the opposition come off their goal line this puts so much pressure on the opposition. It could be the undoing of the Panthers. The Panthers had a good completion rate & made good run meters behind a big forward pack with finishers like Brain To’o & the way Kikau was playing before the break they can win this game with out surprising people but im happy to go with the Knights in an upset

Suggested Bets: Knights +2.5 $1.90

SEA EAGLES Vs BULLDOGS

In the last game of round 3 Sea Eagles play the injury plague Bulldogs. The sea eagles have stars all over the park in DCE , the Trbojevic brothers Walker & Taufua. They played very well in the first 2 games of the season beating the Roosters & just going down to the Storm. The bulldogs on the other hand had good games from Lewis and DWZ but they need some help from the players around them if they are going to beat the Sea eagles. History shows that not much more than 38 points is scored in this game, so the unders is also a betting option

Suggested Bets: Sea Eagles to win & under 39.5 $2.65

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
