MELBOURNE STORM vs NEWCASTLE KNIGHTS - Friday night 6.00pm, AAMI Park

Some of the Storm’s big guns will be smarting after the thumping at the hands of NSW on Wednesday night. Speaking of smarting – Billy Slater might be pretty happy he didn’t get the call up that most expected after the result, and he will step out against the Knights with something to prove.

 

I just cannot see the Knights competing here. They are the full package the Storm and with Bromwich and McClean back, they look like they will run away with this. MELBOURNE STORM to win, STORM 13+, STORM HT/FT Double, all box and dice.

 

VUNIVALU ($6) who else for First Try?  A canter for the Victorians.

PARRAMATTA EELS vs NZ WARRIORS - Friday night 7.50pm, ANZ Stadium

Ok. You know I tipped the Warriors last time after swearing not to back them. They are just not a betting option, but they had to win given the circumstances. I have absolutely zero confidence in this game but I am here to tip and tip I will. PARRAMATTA EELS on top. They were pretty good last time out and with Gutherson on fire, they will shake the life out of the ‘you-don’t-know-what-you-will-get’ Warriors. Safest play I reckon.

 

PARRAMATTA 1-12 ($3.10) is the margin play. Again – you don’t know what you will get with the Warriors, if behind they might turn it up completely, but we will place faith in this being a relatively close match.

 

TEPAI MOEROA ($34) is a beast of a man, knows how to run powerful lines and scored a good try last time out. Let’s have a lick at the big odds about him crashing through first up.

ST GEORGE-ILLAWARRA vs WESTS TIGERS - Saturday afternoon 3.00pm, ANZ Stadium

Saints have defied everyone’s early season predictions and have played some stunning footy this season. Their forwards have been excellent and if Frizzell and Dugan back up, as well as Widdop being named on the bench, it augurs well for the Dragons here. Wests Tigers are battling at the moment and whilst Tedesco and woods were enormous for NSW on Wednesday, it has to have taken a toll on them. Don’t expect too many minutes.

 

Saints are very short straight out. They will win the game but yet again this round, I expect it to be a tight affair and as such, SAINTS 1-12 ($3.30) is a handy bet at good odds.

 

JOEL THOMPSON ($34) is great value about a bloke who has scored 5 tries this season. I am on him here to bag the first try of the game.

ST GEORGE 1-12 Winning Margin

SYDNEY ROOSTERS vs BRISBANE BRONCOS - Saturday afternoon 5.30pm, Allianz

The Roosters look like they will be without Pearce and Napa, both sustaining injuries in SOO-1. Added to the question marks on the game, you just do not know how the Broncos maroon contingent will pull up after getting pummeled by the Blues. There will be some battered and bruised Broncos for this clash.

 

I am going to slightly favour the ROOSTERS in this one, playing in Sydney and a side who has been doing pretty well. I wouldn’t go diving into this game with great gusto and again I lean to the added value coming via the margins play here, looking to the ROOSTERS 1-12 ($3) as the best strategy if you want to invest.

 

I am going left field with my play for First Try Scorer. This diminutive hooker has found the line a few times recently, and at 60-1 to score first, I have to have something on. JAKE FRIEND ($61) to send us all into a frenzy on Saturday arvo, giving us some great ammo to pile into the Titans in the next game!

 

 

Outright Match Winner:

SYDNEY ROOSTERS

Margin Betting:

ROOSTERS 1-12 Winning Margin

NORTH QLD COWBOYS vs GOLD COAST TITANS - Saturday night 7.30pm, 1300 Smiles Stadium

All eyes are on JT and whether he will play. I reckon he won’t. As we saw in SOO-1, any team without JT is by far the worse for it. Same with the Cowboys here. Like at other venues, home ground advantage seems to have flown out the window this season. The Cowboys have been beaten at home by the likes of the Tigers and Manly, whilst also sneaking away with it against the lowly Knights. The Titans might be without Peats but they have easily enough cattle to take the challenge right up to the Cowboys. I am tipping the TITANS as sensational odds. $2.50+ is simply massive.

 

You know how much I like the winning margin option, I can see $4.20+ the TITANS 1-12 on Oddschecker, that will do me. Thank you. And if ever you want someone to produce like he did for us earlier this season at 15-1, THE DON – ANTHONY DON ($14) always puts in and expect to be a serious contender for First Try Scorer.

 

I am all over the TITANS in this game.

MANLY SEA EAGLES vs CANBERRA RAIDERS - Sunday afternoon 2.00pm, La La Land

Odds suggest a ‘take-your-pick’ game here but however many chances I have given the Raiders to shine, they really haven’t produced this season. Looking back on games I see the thumping dealt out by the Sharks, their escape against the Warriors, their 1 point loss to Sunday’s opponents but who could forget their slapping about at the hands of the Knights? Alarm bells.

 

The Sea Eagles on the other hand have been going well and whilst Brookvale isn’t the fortress it once was, the good odds on offer a home team win suggests that MANLY are the way to go here. It won’t be a carve up, so let’s also take the value in the EAGLES 1-12 ($3.50) to spice things up.

 

This does look a fabulous match to take OVERS in TOTAL POINTS. The line is set around 42.5, and both these sides score and leak points. Great bet this, get on and cheer the ‘meat pies’. A lad who was unlucky to miss out on Origin selection is the way to go for First Try Scorer – DYLAN WALKER ($15). He has been flying this season and has a habit of scoring at home, so get on Dylan to bag the first four-pointer.

MANLY SEA EAGLES

MANLY 1-12 Winning Margin

Total Match Points O/U:

TOTAL POINTS: OVER 42.5 points

CANTERBURY BULLDOGS vs PENRITH PANTHERS - Sunday afternoon 4.00pm, ANZ

This is a must win game for both these sides as losses in the next few weeks will see them drop to the danger zone, where making the Top 8 will be very difficult. There is a lot on the line. The Bulldogs have a few key players backing up after last night’s SOO, whilst the Panthers are fresh as daisies, raring to go. I like the look of Moylan at 5/8th and Dylan Edwards filled in perfectly at fullback last game. They welcome back Josh Mansour to the side after a long injury layoff which is a huge boost.

 

What there will be under sunny skies are plenty of points, and the line currently sits around 39-40 in total. Go OVER TOTAL POINTS in this game as there looks like plenty of action in store. This is my overall preferred play for this game, and whilst I am going to tip the PANTHERS to win, I do so looking at the value in 1-12 ($3.30). Gee, I like a lot of 1-12 margins this week.  An all-up involving all of them punters?

 

I am also tipping a fairytale return for outstanding winger in JOSH MANSOUR ($13) as First Try Scorer. He has been out for a long time and will be firing on all cylinders from the get go.

 

 

Outright Match Winner:

PENRITH PANTHERS

Margin Betting:

PANTHERS 1-12 Winning Margin

Total Match Points O/U:

TOTAL POINTS OVER 40.0 points

First Try Scorer:
