West Tigers v North Queensland Cowboys

Friday August 25, 7:50pm AEST – Campbelltown Stadium

The Wests Tigers have been a good betting team of late but have rarely been in the position of favourite of late. The Tigers have covered just four of their last 15 as a favourite. The Tigers have also covered just four of their last 15 at Campbelltown and this is a must-win situation for the Cowboys. North Queensland have covered five of their last seven interstate after conceding 26 or more points.

Gold Coast Titans v Canterbury Bulldogs

Saturday August 26, 3:00pm AEST – CBUS Super Stadium

It is hard to see how the Titans are so heavily favoured in this one after sacking their coach on Monday following five straight losses where they were defeated by a combined score of 176-44. The Titans have covered just five of their last 17 as a home favourite while they have covered just one of their last six at home during the day. The betting gap here is just too wide.

New Zealand Warriors v Manly Sea Eagles

Sunday August 27, 2:00pm AEST – Mt Smart Stadium

Manly are shocking bets as a favourite away from Brookvale, covering just four of their last 17, including outright losses as big favourites to the Tigers and Bulldogs in the last fortnight. Manly are 0-5 against the line as an interstate favourite of more than a converted try this year. The Warriors are struggling but so too are Manly making the home underdog the bet.
