Weekly Expert Betting Tips - Join our free mailing listNRL betting markets are gearing up for the final home-and-away round of the season, with punters' eyes on the form of teams readying themselves for a crack at the finals.
St George Illawarra, second in the ladder, are playing Parramatta at WIN Jubilee Oval on Friday night and the pressure is already on Dragons coach Wayne Bennett.
His side went down 41-6 to South Sydney at the weekend, making it three losses in a row for them and prompting speculation the Dragons can start to struggle when it really matters.
Tipster "The Adjudicator", writing on FoxSports.com, also feels it could be a fourth loss in a row for St George.
Betfair has the tie evenly matched with the Eels at 1.98 for the win and St George at 1.96 for a victory.
Quoted in the Daily Telegraph, Dragons coach Bennett defended his record at the business end of NRL seasons.
He said: "My record suggests to me that I'm not a choker.
"It doesn't interest me that term. I haven't choked when it's mattered. If it is a problem here, I'll get it sorted out. But I don't see it as a problem.
"I don't think anyone is running around here scared about the position they've found ourselves in."
When it comes the premiers, NRL betting sees St George on 5.20 with Betfair, with the Bulldogs out in front on 4.90 and Manly on 6.60.
