South Sydney v Canberra

Saturday April 21, 3:00pm – Central Coast Stadium

Canberra have had the best of South Sydney in recent meetings with three straight wins including victories of 14 and 50 in the last two. The Raiders have also won six of the last nine meetings with the Rabbitohs and have covered seven of their last 10 on the road off back-to-back wins. Canberra have found some form and look to be in a good spot to continue it.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Canberra +4.5

Wests Tigers v Newcastle

Saturday April 21, 5:30pm – Scully Park

The Wests Tigers have enjoyed an incredible start to the season and their success seems to be built on the sustainable foundation of defence with Ivan Cleary’s team conceding just 11.2 points per game.

The Tigers have covered 13 of their last 15 games with a perfect 6-0 cover record this year. Having covered seven of their last eight after conceding 12 or fewer, they should have few problems with a Newcastle team who rank 15th in defence and have won just one of their last four games.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Wests Tigers –4.5

Parramatta v Manly

Sunday April 22, 2:00pm – ANZ Stadium

Parramatta are winless through six games here but look to be in a good spot to break through against rivals Manly. The Eels were whipped 54-0 when the teams met in Round 2 but Parramatta had won the six previous encounters. Manly have covered just four of their last 19 as a road favourite away from Brookvale and on that alone they are a bet against team.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Parramatta +4.5

Canterbury v Sydney Roosters

Thursday April 19, 7:50pm – ANZ Stadium

The Bulldogs look to be in a great spot as a big home underdog against the Roosters here. Canterbury enter this off their best performance of the season, a dominant 27-10 win over the Cowboys in Townsville. The Roosters have been hot and cold this year but have struggled to really get any go forward happening. The combinations through the spine are also concerning.

The Bulldogs have covered 11 of their last 17 as an underdog at ANZ and six of their last nine at the ground after scoring 25 or more. The Roosters have covered just one of their last six away from Allianz after scoring 14 or fewer.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Canterbury +6.5
