Parramatta vs New Zealand

Friday June 2, 7:50pm AEST – ANZ Stadium

There is no more unreliable team in the NRL than the New Zealand Warriors. They have covered just 4 of 12 games this year. They have been inside the handicap in just 5 of their last 15 away from Mt Smart. They have covered just 2 of their last 10 night games. The resilient Eels have covered 9 of their last 12 at ANZ and 8 of their last 12 off a win and after a ‘Come to Jesus’ week following a humiliation at the hands of the Roosters, their toughness should prove enough.

BACK – Parramatta -2.5

North Queensland v Gold Coast

Saturday June 3, 7:30pm AEST – 1300SMILES Stadium

North Queensland have won four on the trot against Gold Coast and look set to make it five on end. The average margin of victory over those four wins has been 18 points. The Cowboys have downed the Titans in 6 of their last 7 in Townsville with double digit margins being recorded in all those victories. The Cowboys have covered 9 of their last 12 in Townsville off a loss. It is hard to go past the Cowboys in this one.

BACK – North Queensland

Canterbury v Penrith

Sunday June 4, 4:00pm AEST – ANZ Stadium

Canterbury’s attack has been awful this year – second worst in the NRL – but gets every chance to atone against a Penrith team that has conceded at least 18 points in seven straight matches. There is no doubt Matt Moylan will be target heavily by the Canterbury forwards now he has moved into the front line of the defence. The Bulldogs bounce back well from defeat, covering 12 of 18 off a loss. Penrith shouldn’t be favoured away from home against a competent team.
