These are Chris’ tips for this week and weekend, good luck!
Grand Final Winners
Odds: 11 Various
NRL Thursday 8:50am
Melbourne Storm v Brisbae Broncos
Bet: Melbourne Winning Margin 1-10
Odds: 3.4 Ladbrokes Coral Bet365
Rationale: So both these sides are held in the same regard pre season pereniel favourites behind the Roosters. I have doubts over both teams. The Storm just look like they lack enough quality while the Broncos under a new attacking coach. The Storm also boast the greatest home field advantage of ay tea in the legue and at this price the 1-10 looks too good to ignore,
NRL Friday 7:00am
Newcastle v Cronulla
Bet: Newcastle Winning Margin 1-10
Odds: 3.5 Ladbrokes Coral 3.4 Bet365
Rationale: The Knights have signed a ton of quality in the off season and with Flanagan departing the Sharks I expect their defence to take a downturn particularly with the amount of bodies being replaced on the edge. The Knights were good value at home last year when Ponga, Pearce and Watson all played they could give anyone a game and while Im not convinced by Ponga at 6 I still like the Knights too much here.
NRL Sunday 5:05am
Penrith Panthers v Parramatta Eels
Bet: Penrith Panthers -4
Odds: 1.95 Redzone 10Bet SportNation SportPesa 1.91 Bet365
Rationale: Th Panthers are the 2nd best team in the competition for me and the Eels still have a long way to go. With home field factored in this rice is too good to pass up. This line would be closer to the 8 point mark later on.
NRL Sunday 7:10am
Gold Coast Titans v Canberra Raiders
Bet: Gold Coast Titans Winning Margin 1-10
Odds: 3.6 Ladbrokes 3.5 Bet365
Rationale: The Raiders were the kings of losing by this margin last year. They’re away to a team with a good home field advantage and their defensive edges still look bad.
