The Golden State Warriors may have just missed out on sweeping the Cleveland Cavaliers but we didn’t miss our opportunity to sweep our top plays. Three from three last week in what was a textbook week on the punt.
Lets look to back it up!
Leg 1 – Melbourne / North Queensland Either Team 8 or Less
I really liked Cowboys+4 when the markets opened but the value is now gone with the line siting at 2.5.
With both sides heavily gutted due to origin it will be a close encounter. Great value with the either side under 8 points here.
This game should be an unders game as well, which will leave little wiggle room for a blowout by either side.
Put your money on the final number landing within 8 either way.
Leg 2 – Wests Tigers +4.5 1h
The Tigers played the Sharks close in their last encounter and the Sharks were at full strength.
This time round the boys from the shire will be without Bird, Graham, Fifita and Maloney.
We played against the Tigers last week in the Roosters rout. It was obvious the Tigers haven’t shaken their second half syndrome. In saying that. The Tigers on the first half line at 4 points should be golden.
The Sharks have lost their goal kicker, and arguably four best players. Tigers will keep this close by the half.
Take the Tigers with the points.
Leg 3 – Parramatta Eels 1-12
The Dragons have been a bit underwhelming in recent weeks.
Parramatta comes into this game with Norman working his way back to full strength and not impacted by origin selections.
The Cowboys embarrassed the Eels last week and I think they’re due a bounce back.
The Dragons have 2 less days to prepare for this one. I think the Dragons keep it close, at the end of the day their defence is still good and the Eels do have a turnstile called Mitchell Moses on the park that can keep it close.
The Eels have won 5 straight against the Dragons.
Take the Eels in a close one.
Leg 1: Melbourne / North Queensland Either Team 8 or less
Leg 2: Wests Tigers +4.5 1H
Leg 3: Parramatta Eels 1-12
Approximate odds: 10.71
