Utilising a vast array of variables and proven statistical methods, the NRL Prediction Model takes a purely statistical approach to predicting NRL outcomes.

Predicted NRL probabilities can be used to identify value Back & Lay bets. Factors such as injuries and weather aren’t considered in the assessments but can be manually considered in your wagering to give you an added edge.

Data Scientists Comments

Canberra Raiders are the form team of the competition after notching their seventh-straight win in most impressive fashion against ladder-leading Melbourne Storm. The model has put the line through the Eels in their season from hell, rating them just a 6% ($14.55) of knocking off the Raiders in the nation’s capital. The $1.22 (81%) available in early markets on the exchange represents value for Canberra with the Model rating them as low of $1.07 (93%).

The Model expects Melbourne to bounce back immediately when they face arch-rivals Manly at Brookvale on Saturday Night. The early market suggests Melbourne Storm are a ‘good thing’ at $1.32 (75%), but the Model has rated the storm at $1.76 (56%). The Model rates Sea Eagles a 44% ($2.26) winning chance compared to the 25%($3.95) market price. Don’t be surprised to see the Storm to drift heavily opening up a great Lay-To-Back opportunity.
