There are some dominant favourites this round and I haven’t seen lines this big since KFC did 24 nuggets for $10!
Manly Sea Eagles ($7.75) VS Penrith Panthers ($1.08) – Lottoland
Penrith have one of, if not the best, left edge attacks in the game and Manly’s right edge couldn’t contain the Dragons last week. Penrith by plenty.
Suggested Bet – Same Game Multi – Penrith Panthers -18.5/Brian To’o anytime tryscorer/Viliame Kikau anytime tryscorer @ $5.99
Canterbury Bulldogs ($7.25) VS South Sydney Rabbitohs ($1.09) – Stadium Australia
The dogs would make excellent golfers as they always produce a low score. The Bunnies will attack to their left and should have a field day against a poor right edge defence.
Suggested Bet – Same Game Multi – Rabbitohs -21.5/Alex Johnston anytime tryscorer/Dane Gagai anytime tryscorer @ $5.06
Melbourne Storm ($1.09) VS Brisbane Broncos ($7.25) – AAMI Park
Another lopsided affair and another matchup where the Storm’s left edge attack should have a night out against an awful right edge defence of the Broncos.
Suggested Bet – Same Game Multi – Melbourne Storm -19.5/Justin Olam anytime tryscorer/Kenneath Bromwich anytime tryscorer @ $9.93
Cronulla Sharks ($1.40) VS North Queensland Cowboys ($2.90) – Netstrata Jubilee Stadium
Cows coach Todd Payten has wielded the axe but it is hard to have any faith in them until they show some resolve. Sharks went with the Eels last week before being crippled with injuries. Won’t be pretty but the Sharks should cover.
Suggested Bet – Cronulla Sharks -8.5 @ $1.90
