Manly vs Newcastle

Friday June 9, 6:00pm AEST – Lottoland

The Sea Eagles have been the revelation of the 2017 season and should have absolutely no problem disposing of a Newcastle team going backwards from an already low base. Manly have won six straight against Newcastle with five of those wins by more than 16 points. Newcastle have been particularly bad bets at night covering just 2 of their last 11 as an outsider of 10 or more under lights. The likely return of Tom Trbojevic should just add to Newcastle’s woes.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Manly -13.5

Parramatta v North Queensland

Saturday June 9, 7:30pm AEST – TIO Stadium

North Queensland have been very good on the road of late with five straight covers. The Cowboys have had the wood on the Eels of late with seven wins in the last 10 meetings. The Eels have managed to cover the start in just one of their last five away from ANZ. North Queensland are starting to find some form and look well over the odds.

Betting Strategy

BACK – North Queensland

Canterbury v St George Illawarra

Monday June 12, 4:00pm AEST – ANZ Stadium

There is no doubt Canterbury were utterly humiliated by Penrith last week – they tend to bounce back from poor losses well though. The Bulldogs have covered 8 of their last 9 after conceding 30 or more points. Canterbury have won nine of their last 10 against the Dragons and have covered 7 of their last 10 as an underdog of more than a try.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Canterbury+6.5
