Gold Coast Titans vs Newcastle Knights Predictions and Betting Tips


Both teams come into this match with injuries to their creative halves with Tyson Gamble and Kieren Foran missing. The Titans have also lost A.J. Brimson which will hurt their point scoring production, while the Knights will be seating on Bradman Best and Dane Gagai.

With all of the injury concerns in this game and a fairly high total expected of 45.5 points, the Under is too tempting to pass up.

Betting Tip: Under 45.5 Game Total @ $1.91 Unibet


Cronulla Sharks vs Sydney Roosters Predictions and Betting Tips


With Joey Manu missing from the Roosters lineup, Sydney’s scoring power that has put on 138 points in the past 3 games will slow down against the Sharks, who are the best defensive team in the league, conceding just 8.5 points on average over their past 4 matches.

Nicho Hynes return will see the Sharks put even more pressure on the Roosters than his team did without him in their win against Melbourne last week. Hynes will add the spark that Cronulla need to put up points on the Roosters which will see them cover the line as the Dog.

Betting Tip: Cronulla +4.5 @ $1.84 BoomBet


South Sydney Rabbitohs vs North QLD Cowboys Predictions and Betting Tips


Two teams that have been atrocious in defence will lock horns to close out Saturday’s matches at Magic Round. The Total is tied highest of the season at 50.5 and it is expected that this one will hit the Over this time. 

The Bunnies will get Alex Johnston back from injury while the Cowboys see the return of Murray Taulagi which will help the cause of a high-scoring free-flowing game on Saturday night.

Betting Tip: Over 50.5 Game Total @ $1.93
