Prices and previews available online Wednesday;
Melbourne Storm v St George-Illawarra Dragons betting odds (Etihad Stadium)
The 2 NRL favourites slug it out on a Good Friday battle at The Etihad Stadium. The Dragons have started the season in fone form, and are now joint favourites for season 2010, along with World Champions, The Storm. The bookies slightly favour the home side, and with Greg Inglis sure to relish this battle, take the 1.76 available with sportsbet for a Storming victory.
Sydney Roosters v Brisbane Broncos betting odds (Sydney Football Stadium)
Sydney are home bankers for Round 4 against a Broncos team missing Israel Folau, scorer of Brisbane's opening try in each game so far in 2010. 1.36 in the head to head is not great value for The Roosters unless you are playing multis, so take the 1.91 with Sportsbet (-8.5 points on the handicap).
Cronulla Sharks v Parramatta Eels betting odds (Toyota Stadium Sydney)
The Sharks are in a sorry state. In fact any team playing at home and receiving a handicap start of +12.5 looks in trouble. Take the Eels to make life worse for the Sharks by taking 1.91 (-12.5) on the handicap.
North QLD Cowboys v Gold Coast Titans betting odds (Dairy Farmers Stadium)
Titans top the table but are without Scott Prince for the game against The Cowboys. His absence seems to have overly influenced the bookies' view of this game, and with The Titans full of confidence, they are overpriced. For added insurance, take The Titans plus 4.5 points on the sportsbet handicap.
New Zealand Warriors v Manly Sea Eagles betting odds (Mt Smart Stadium)
I marked this game down as a 55% chance win for The Eagles, which would be levelled by The Warriors being at home. So I am suprised to see sportsbet offering The Warriors at 2.25 to come out on top. Get involved, these odds are off the mark.
Canberra Raiders v Wests Tigers betting odds (Canberra Stadium)
This is going to be a tough battle of defences, and very difficult to call. I am not convinced there will be too many points here, so lets hang fire and wait for the bookies to post the under/over spreads.
Newcastle Knights v Penrith Panthers betting odds (EnergyAustralia Stadium)
The Knights, by all accounts, were wretched last week, and if they reproduce that form, we'd be with the Panthers. But we all know the Knights are better than that and although we won't be getting involved financially, the 1.65 offered by the online bookies for a home win looks right.
South Sydney v Bulldogs betting odds (ANZ Stadium)
The Rabbitohs and Bulldogs are both 1-2 for the season, but that doesn't really tell the story with the Bulldogs looking like they are coming into some more cohesive form. We have faith in The Bulldogs, and are happy to take the 3.10 with Sportsbet for them to win by 1-12 points.
