New Zealand v Canterbury

Friday June 23, 6:00pm AEST – Mt Smart Stadium

The Bulldogs have had the best of the Warriors in recent meetings with six wins in the last seven outings. New Zealand are a total mess at home, failing to cover nine straight night games at Mt Smart while they have covered just four of their last 17 at the ground when favoured. Canterbury have covered 9 of their last 13 away from ANZ getting a start of more than a try and look a bet getting a big start.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Canterbury +5.5

Wests Tigers v Gold Coast

Friday June 23, 7:50pm AEST – Campbelltown Stadium

The Wests Tigers are last on the ladder but it seems strange that the Titans are favoured on the road in this one. The Titans have covered just 7 of their last 20 as a favourite and just four of their last 14 night games. The Tigers get James Tedesco and Aaron Woods back off a good attacking performance and they have covered 8 of their last 12 as a home underdog after scoring 20 points.

Betting Strategy

BACK – West Tigers +3.5

Cronulla v Manly

Sunday June 25, 4:00pm AEST – Southern Cross Group Stadium

Cronulla have struggled a little bit home this year with just one cover from eight games and they have struggled historically against Manly. The Sharks will be spurred into gear after an ordinary showing against the Tigers though and Manly are looking increasingly thin on troops. Cronulla have won nine of their last 11 matches.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Cronulla -3.5
