Bulldogs v Eels odds
Both teams sit in the lower half of the table but this game promises more than that after the Eels superb display last week against the Panthers. Based on that performance, a trip to the inconsistent Bulldogs should hold no fears. Fuifui Moimoi can lead the Eels to a comfotable victory here.
Betting tip: Back the Eels minus 5.5pts on the handicap spread at $1.91 with Sportsbet
Dragons v Titans odds
table topping Dragons take on a Titans team that has lost some of the ealry season promise. Only the Roosters in the top half of the table have conceded more points that Gold Coast. The Dragons are the only team in the ladder to have shipped less than 200 points and they have won 4 of their last 5. The bookies have this about right with the Dragons at $1.26 and Titans at $3.90
Betting tip: Include the Dragons in weekend multis at $1.26 with Sportsbet
Raiders v Sharks odds
As with most sports, once a manager goes, the team over performs in the very next game. The Sharks are better and more resilient than recent outings would have us believe. Sportsbet are taking a big chance offering $3.05 for Cronulla here - and the Raiders could be there for the taking.
Betting tip: This is the bet of the week. Take the Sharks +8 points on the handicap spread at $1.91 with Sportsbet
Storm v Panthers odds
The Storm were a bit unlucky in Auckland last week against the in-form Warriors and are not a team to discount lightly. However, we are generally more interested in backing Melbourne when they are odds against. I am struggling to understand, given the current player dealings, how the Storm can be as short as $1.62 against 2nd in the ladder Panthers. Take advantage.
Betting tip: Back the Panthers at a massive looking $2.30 with Sportsbet to win in Melbourne.
Cowboys v Knights odds
A poor game in the offing here as both teams sit near the foot of the ladder with little hope of anything in 2010. 2 awful defences mean that at least there should be some tries to keep punters entertained.
Betting tip: Centrebet offer $2.00 of a try being scored in the first 8 minutes. This could be a value bet.
Rabbitohs v Warriors odds
On current form the bookies have this one all wrong. Rabbitohs are 1-4 in their last 5 games, the Warriors are 5-0. This should be $1.91 for both teams. Sportsbet offer Rabbitohs at a ridiculous $1.67 - so play the odss game and back the Warriors at a very generous looking $2.20
Betting tip: Sportsbet have it wrong here, so back the NZ Warriors at $2.20 to triumph.
Sea Eagles v Tigers odds
6th plays 3rd in a tough looking encounter. Home advantage make the Sea Eagles strong favourites at $1.53 and we cannot argue with that. Not a game to get involved with.
Betting tip: No bet.
Broncos v Roosters odds
Betting tip: A full preview will appear here for the live Monday game when team news is available.
