Three big games this Saturday, including what looks an easy win for the Rabbitohs.
South Sydney Rabbitohs v Newcastle Knights
South Sydney pounded the Roosters in round-one and you can expect them to give Newcastle similar treatment at ANZ Stadium on Saturday. The home side will be without Adam Reynolds (jaw) and John Sutton (pec) but are still white-hot favourites. Luxbet and Sportsbet’s $1.32 for a Bunnies’ win looks like money for jam. They have been well supported already at the shorts as many punters look the anchor them in multiples this weekend.
The Rabbitohs scored eight tries against the Roosters and you can back them at a tasty $3 with William Hill and Centrebet’s "race to 30 points" markets to pile the points on the steel city visitors.
South Sydney Rabbitohs - 1pt @ 1.32
South Sydney Rabbitos - 1pt @ 2.95
Canberra Raiders v Sydney Roosters
Despite taking the points in a hard-fought contest against Penrith, Canberra were roughed up at GIO Stadium and have considerable injury headaches as they prepare to host the Sydney Roosters on Saturday. Halves pairing Blake Austin (knee) and Aidan Sezer (eye socket) will miss the clash and as such, the Raiders will start as $2.05 outsiders with Sportsbet. The Roosters will be looking to bounce back after an inept performance against the Rabbitohs where they were thumped 42-10. We are tipping them to turn the tables -especially with the Raiders losing two high calibre and key players: take the $1.85 from Sportsbet about the Chooks.
Sydney Roosters - 1pt @ 1.85
Parramatta Eels v North Queensland Cowboys
Parramatta are confident injured duo Kieran Foran and Corey Norman will be right to go on Saturday night and the Eels will need them against reigning premiers North Queensland at Pirtek Stadium. The Cowboys are $1.62 favourites with Unibet but the tip is to take the $1.82 in the handicap market about the Eels +5.5 points with Luxbet. Expect it to be a close one as Parramatta continue their rebuilding under coach Brad Arthur.
Parramatta Eels +5.5 - 1pt @ 1.82
