Rabbitohs – In: Cameron Murray, Latrell Mitchell / Out: Liam Le Blanc, Jye Gray

What We Like

The Rabbitohs have won their past three matches in a row and have looked like their best in recent times, while the Eels’ struggles have continued under Trent Barrett’s tenure.

Match Result South Sydney Rabbitohs $1.64

Final Thought

The brother of Penrith centre Izack Tago, Jake Tago will make his NRL debut this Thursday in place of Maika Sivo and will be looking to score in his opening match. Tago has been a standout in the NSW Cup in recent weeks.

What We Like

An upset could be on the cards for the Gold Coast Titans after they demolished the Warriors 66-6 in their last game, while the Sharks have failed to deliver in their past two matches and are going in a downward spiral.

Match Result Gold Coast Titans $3.05

Final Thought

After struggling in recent weeks, that saw him fail to ice the match against the Bulldogs and Dolphins, Hynes will be looking to lift as he is puts a bad month of football behind him.

What We Like

The Grand Final rematch will take place yet again and like last time it’s hard to go past the three-time defending premiers despite the match taking place at Suncorp Stadium.

Match Result Penrith Panthers $1.56

Final Thought

With the Panthers set to walk away with the victory after the match at Suncorp Stadium, one can expect a brilliant performance from winger Brian To’o who’s consistency has made him one of the best players in the NRL.

What We Like

Fighting for a finals berth, the Canterbury Bulldogs are amazing at home and yet to lose a game at their home stadium of Accor Stadium this season.

Match Result Canterbury Bulldogs $1.50

Final Thought

While the Warriors have had their ups-and-downs this year, Te Maire Martin has been a standout performer and really stood up in the absence of Shaun Johnson.

What We Like

While the Melbourne Storm are favourites to walk away with the victory on Saturday, the Tigers will be hoping to narrow the lose to less than 13 points after an abysmal performance against the Roosters last week.

Margin Melbourne Storm 1-12 $3.00

Final Thought

Melbourne forward Josh King has been in impeccable form in attack having scored tries in consecutive matches for the purple outfit.

Team News

What We Like

Star winger Zac Lomax is back on deck this weekend and is likely to add another four-pointer to his resume and try-scoring tally this week.

Anytime Tryscorer Zac Lomax $1.78

Final Thought

The Roosters may be favourites heading into the match on Sunday but the Dragons have produced some of the biggest upsets this season and have been brilliant under Shane Flanagan. An upset could be on the cards.

What We Like

Bradman Best found his Origin-best form last week. The star centre will be looking to keep his great form intact, especially with the Blues team being selected this weekend.

To Score 2 or More Tries Bradman Best $6.00

Final Thought

Both teams have struggled recently, but the Knights showcased their talents last weekend, especially with the re-inclusions of Bradman Best and Will Pryce.

Margin Newcastle Knights 1-12 $2.85
