Penrith Panthers vs Wests Tigers Predictions and Betting Tips


Despite the Panthers dominating the competition over the past few years the Tigers have been able to keep things on level terms with the defending premiers, winning 2 of the 4 games played from 2021-2023. The prediction isn't that they run away with a victory here but the trends are telling us that the 14.5 point start is a value bet and the chances of the Tigers keeping things close are very high.

Wests have also covered the line in each of the last 4 games and in this corresponding game in Bathurst last year came away with the win. This week Lachlan Galvin returns to the team after serving a two game suspension and will add a dynamic running option to the Tigers backline movements. 

I don't expect there to be many tries scored in this one with the Panthers struggling to score without Nathan Cleary on the park, it just makes it all the more easier to back the Tigers to cover the line!

Betting Tip: Wests Tigers +14.5 @ 1.95 Unibet

Gold Coast Titans vs Manly Sea Eagles Predictions and Betting Tips

The Titans are still chasing their first win of the season under new head coach Des Hasler and the new Titans boss would like nothing more than to get it against his former club. Hasler has been fiddling with the combinations, some forced and some not and found some success with A.J. Brimson and Kieren Foran in the halves which has produced points.

Manly have looked lucious in attack and will be out to exploit the second-worst defence in the NRL with the likes of Daly Cherry-Evans, Luke Brooks and Tommy Turbo. Manly have need all of the attacking flare they can get as they also average over 21 points allowed per game.

Both teams still have a lot to work on defensively which has me looking at the over in this game, however, at 47.5 points it is a bit of stretch. I am leaning towards the Titans to break through again this week and score 18 points or more for the third week in succession.

Brisbane Broncos vs Canberra Raiders Predictions and Betting Tips


This club rivalry is one for the ages even if it has calmed down a bit in recent years. With the Broncos being one of the most efficient attacking teams scoring a try for every 6 tackles in their Opposition 20m zone the Raiders will need to make sure they control the territory if they are to be any chance of winning. My prediction is that they won't be able to achieve that and the Broncos will methodically move the ball down the field and capitalise on their chances on the Raiders goal line. 

5 of the last 6 games between these teams have gone Over the Game Total indicating that there will be a number of tries scored. Jesse Arthars has scored 4 tries in his 6 games so far this season with the Raiders conceding 47% of their tries down their right side opposite Arthars the chances are good he crosses for a meat pie!
