The Newcastle Knights take on the North Queensland Cowboys at the Energy Australia Stadium with the home side sitting comfortably in the top eight.
Fox Sports tipster 'The Adjudicator' has earmarked this one for a home win as "the visitors have been as cold as stone over the last month and haven't travelled well all season".
His view is backed by the fact the Knights rolled over Melbourne Storm by 26 to 14 on Monday night.
The performance also demonstrated a renewed sense of purpose among the ranks after Rick Stone was installed as the Knights' new coach.
The Cowboys, meanwhile, lost their last game at home and have not performed well on the road all season.
IASbet is offering 1.53 for a Knights win and 2.50 for the away side to snatch victory.
Betting on who will secure a top eight spot sees 1.45 on the Knights to make the grade, with the same bookmaker, while the Cowboys are at 2.00 to make the nut.
When it comes to who will seal the premiership, IASbet has St George at 2.75 with the Knights way out at 29.00 and the Cowboys down at 41.00.
