Team News

Panthers – In: Matt Eisenhuth / Out: James Fisher-Harris

Broncos – In: Jock Madden, Xavier Willison / Out: Adam Reynolds, Payne Haas

What We Like

In a rematch of last year’s Grand Final, the Broncos unfortunately enter the match without star duo Adam Reynolds and Payne Haas. The latter is a significant omission due to his ability to lead the forward pack and will create a big hole in the forwards.

Margin Penrith Panthers 13+ $2.10

Final Thought

Izack Tago could potentially be the most in-form player in the NRL right now and is coming off a career-best performance in Round 2. Aiming for an Origin berth, Tago can put his name in the hat from a good showing against the Broncos.

Warriors – No changes made

Raiders – In: Elliott Whitehead, Nick Cotric / Out: Seb Kris, Ata Mariota

What We Like

Although the Canberra Raiders have won their opening two games, their run should come to an end this weekend. The Warriors are near unstoppable at home and have had two close losses to begin the season.

Match Result New Zealand Warriors $1.40

Final Thought

After two tries last week, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak to become a tryscorer in the match is a no-brainer.

Roosters – In: Angus Crichton, Connor Watson / Out: Luke Keary, Siua Wong

Rabbitohs – In: Dean Hawkins, Jack Wighton, Jacob Host / Out: Lachlan Ilias, Shaquai Mitchell, Richie Kennar

What We Like

In the news for the past couple of weeks, the Rabbitohs desperately need a victory (in particular, coach Jason Demetriou). Halfback Dean Hawkins will be looking to cement his spot in the side and can do so with a quality performance.

Match Result South Sydney Rabbitohs $2.26

Final Thought

The two Roosters wingers seem to find the tryline with ease. The club’s halves will be looking to kick to them everytime due to their height and being much taller than the Souths wingers.

Titans – In: Kieran Foran / Out: Tom Weaver

What We Like

The Bulldogs will make their way back to Belmore this weekend and will be looking to impress their home fans. Yet, to register a win, they go up against a side that struggled in Round 1.

Match Result Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs $1.80

Final Thought

The crowd will go ballistic if Crichton is able to get over the line this weekend. Since joining the club, he has unfortunately struggled to find the ball in his hands as he adjusts to the club.

Cowboys – In: Jack Gosiewski / Out: Heilum Luki

What We Like

Shane Flanagan’s men will enter most games this season as the underdogs and look to pull off several surprises. After a poor performance against the Dolphins, Flanagan will look to his leaders to stand up and deliver.

Match Result St George Illawarra Dragons $2.95

Final Thought

If newly-appointed captain Tom Dearden can continue last week’s form, there is no end to how far the club can go this season. The Cowboys will be looking to continue last week’s win with a dominant performance.

Margin North Queensland Cowboys 13+ $2.35

Team News

Tigers – In: Justin Olam / Out: Starford To’a

Sharks – In: Billy Burns / Out: Briton Nikora

What We Like

Both clubs enter the match with a poor defensive rating. The Sharks especially will be looking to use their outside backs (like the Raiders did to the Tigers last week) to score tries.

Total Try Markets 11+ $5.10

Final Thought

The Sharks should continue off their good form and add an extra win to the NRL table. After a poor showing against the Raiders, the Wests Tigers should be easily be beaten by more than 13 points.

Margin Cronulla Sharks 13+ $1.86

Team News

Sea Eagles – In: Raymond Tuaimalo Vaega / Out: Tommy Talau

What We Like

The Manly Sea Eagles dominated last week after a great Round 1 in Las Vegas. The club can be expected to get off to a hot start and should easily finish the clash.

Half-Time/Full-Time Manly Sea Eagles/Manly Sea Eagles $2.80

Final Thought

The Parramatta Eels have one problem with their team this week, and that is the lack of quality outside backs, as shown by Morgan Harper playing on the wing. Manly will be looking to exploit this to the best of their ability.

Team News

Storm – In: Kane Bradley, Tepai Moeroa / Out: Jahrome Hughes, Christian Welch

What We Like

The Knights and Storm are both lacking in the halves this week, with Jackson Hastings, Cameron Munster, and Jahrome Hughes ruled out. Due to the lack of attacking options, expect the match to be a close encounter.

Total Score (40.5) Under 40.5 $1.90

Final Thought

The Melbourne Storm are surprising outsiders despite winning their opening two games against good team – Panthers and Warriors. It’s hard to bet against them considering their current form.
