Broncos – No changes made

Rabbitohs – In: Tallis Duncan, Shaquai Mitchell / Out: Jai Arrow,  Jacob Host

What We Like

After scoring a double in Las Vegas – including the opening try of the season – centre Richard Kennar will be looking to continue his try-scoring run as he aims to cement a position in the team beyond this week.

Anytime Tryscorer Richard Kennar $4.60

Final Thought

After a disappointing loss to the Sydney Roosters, the Broncos return home to Red Hill as they attempt to earn their first two points of the season. Expect a close match, but the Broncos to finish on top due to the multiple injuries the Rabbitohs have at this current stage.

Sharks- No changes made

Bulldogs- In: Connor Tracey / Out: Josh Addo-Carr

What We Like

It’s always a party at Shark Park! The Sharks’ home ground always manages to produce multiple points and tries, and expect no different this week. The two teams are attacking powerhouses and have incredible backlines.

Total Score (38.5) Over 38.5 $1.90

Final Thought

Although the Bulldogs have completely revamped their roster ahead of this season, the club struggled in their opening game against the Eels. Yet to find elite playmakers, the club have struggled to flow in attack which would see the Sharks take full advantage.

Panthers- In: Scott Sorensen, Mitch Kenny / Out: Matthew Eisenhuth, Luke Sommerton

Eels- No changes made

What We Like

In a rematch of the 2022 NRL Grand Final, the Eels head to Penrith, with both teams eager to claim two points. While it may be hard to pick a winner due to current form, there is sure to be multiple tries throughout the match.

Total Tries 6.5 (6.5) Under +6.5 $1.72

Final Thought

After a disastrous World Club Challenge campaign and losing in Round 1 to the Melbourne Storm, the Penrith Panthers are yet to register a win this season. It’s hard to see them going two weeks into the season and not recording a victory.

Margin Penrith Panthers 1 to 12 $2.55

Raiders- In: Seb Kris / Out: Nick Cotric

Tigers- Club Debuts: Lachlan Galvin, Solomona Faataape, Jayden Sullivan, Aidan Sezer, Samuela Fainu

What We Like

The Wests Tigers are aiming to get to the best start possible this season after claiming back-to-back wooden spoons in 2022 and 2023. With a new and improved roster, including the debut of Lachlan Galvin, the club could produce a surprising win this weekend.

Match Result Wests Tigers $2.85

Final Thought

There has been a lot of hype surrounding young five-eighth Lachlan Galvin, but another player in Tigers colours is set to make his NRL debut this round- Solomona Faataape. Regarded as a top centre in the QLD Cup last season, he has shown its easy for him to cross the try-line.

Anytime Tryscorer Solomona Faataape $3.75

Cowboys- No changes made

Knights- In: Tom Jenkins, Jed Cartwright / Out: Dylan Lucas, Enari Tuala

What We Like

The Cowboys produced a dominate win last week, while the Knights seemed to struggle against the Canberra Raiders. Going off current form, another dominant win for the Cowboys could be on the cards.

Margin North Queensland Cowboys 13+ $2.45

Final Thought

Like last week, the Cowboys will come straight out of the gates during the first half. This would allow an easy bet for the club to take the lead heading into the 40-minute break.

Storm- No changes made

Warriors- No changes made

What We Like

Travelling to Australia for the first time this season, the Warriors will take on the Storm, who are coming off a miraculous win against the Panthers. While the Storm may be filled with confidence, they are still without Cameron Munster and Nelson Asofa-Solomona with their opponents trying to exploit their weaknesses.

Match Result New Zealand Warriors $2.75

Final Thought

After debuting last year and having a breakout season for the Storm, Will Warbrick will be a target off kicks from Jonah Pezet and Jahrome Hughes. With an incredible leap, Warbrick is a chance to open up the scoring.

First Tryscorer Will Warbrick $9.00

Sea Eagles- In: Tommy Talau / Out: Jason Saab

Roosters- In: Dominic Young, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves / Out: Junior Pauga, Spencer Leniu

What We Like

The two Las Vegas winners will face off as the inner-state rivals look to gain the upper hand. However, Manly looked more dominant than the Roosters last week, who will be without star recruit Spencer Leniu.

Match Result Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles $2.15

Final Thought

With the Manly Sea Eagles likely to win the match, a good performance can be expected from star fullback Tom Trbojevic. Trbojevic earned man-of-the-match honours and was easily above the rest of the fold and will be looking to continue the form that saw him earn a Dally M Medal.

Dragons- In: Luciano Leilua, Blake Lawrie / Out: Viliami Fifita, Ben Murdoch-Masila

What We Like

After a lacklustre season in 2023, fullback Tyrell Sloan scored three tries last week and is an easy bet for first try-scorer. This is especially due to the Dragons going up against a poor Dolphins team.

First Tryscorer Tyrell Sloan $12.00

Final Thought

Under Shane Flanagan, the Dragons look like a new team and will be looking to continue their impressive performance from last week against the Gold Coast Titans. On the other hand, The Dolphins failed to impress in their opening round and were out-played by the Cowboys.
