Canberra Raiders vs Canterbury Bulldogs Predictions and Betting Tips


The Bulldogs put it in their best performance of the season last week, especially defensively, despite losing to the Penrith Panthers, 16-10. If it wasn’t for a little poor execution in attack the Doggies could have got the upset of the season so far, failing to convert enough on their 7 linebreaks they made throughout the game. 

Canberra have been poor defensively over the past month and the Bulldogs will attack on the back of the majority of the territory, which they have won in their past 7 games this season. 

If the Dogs put in the performance they did last week expect them to run away with this one.

Betting Tip: Canterbury Bulldogs -3.5 @ $1.90 PlayUp


Manly Sea Eagles vs Brisbane Broncos Predictions and Betting Tips


Manly are at breaking point without their go-to fullback Tom Trbojevic and their win rate falls to only 33% when he isn’t in the team. They face one of the toughest opponents in the NRL on their home turf in the games biggest spectacle bar Origin. It is going to take a miracle not for Manly to win but to not get flogged by 50. 

Best bet here is Brisbane 13+ as the trends and history point to a big Brisbane win.

Betting Tip: Brisbane 13+ Winning Margin @ $2.00 Elitebet
