South Sydney Rabbitohs v Canterbury Bulldogs

Burgess has been immense since returning from his ‘kick and clap’ stint and his loss hurts. That’s why we’re keen on Sportsbet’s $2.10 for Canterbury to score first and win. This will be a close one, though, so get on the Bunnies with a 9.5-point head start ($1.54 with Luxbet).
It’s also worth remembering the Doggies will be boosted by the return of Greg Eastwood. The forward has been named after a foot injury kept him out of Canterbury’s 20-6 beating by Parramatta at the weekend so they will be a stronger prospect.
Brisbane Broncos v North Queensland Cowboys
The fact this game is in the big smoke tips it in favour of the Broncos, who welcome back winger Lachlan Maranta from a wrist injury for the first time this season.
We recommend the $1.68 offered by Unibet for a Brisbane win. Maranta, who scored 15 tries in his 20 games last year, to cross at any time is also paying $2.2 with Sportsbet.
Canberra Raiders v Gold Coast Titans

The Titans notched their second victory of 2016 when putting the brakes on Wests Tigers’ fast start to 2016 with a 12-point triumph at home in round three.
Both teams go into this one unchanged and we think a Raiders Half-Time/Full-Time double at $1.94 with Unibet is where the smart money will be in the nation’s capital. You should also not miss Sportsbet’s $2 for the Green Machine to score first and win.
Sydney Roosters v Manly Sea Eagles
It has been a dreadful opening three rounds to the season for Sydney, culminating in a 40-0 thrashing at the hands of North Queensland last Thursday night.
The Roosters have lost Dale Copley (pectoral) and Ian Henderson (leg) but speedy Brendan Elliot comes into the centres for his first game this season.
We think the Sea Eagles will be too good on Saturday so don’t be afraid of taking Unibet’s $1.64 for a Manly victory. We will also be getting involved in the $10 on offer with Hills, Sportsbet, bet365 and Centrebet for winger Jorge Taufua to score the first try of the match.
St George Illawarra Dragons v Penrith Panthers
Penrith prop Jeremy Latimore copped a one-week ban for a crusher tackle in last week’s shock triumph over Brisbane but lock Trent Merrin, who missed the win last week with a virus, has been named to take on his former team.
We like the Dragons in a close one and Palmerbet’s $1.80 is the best price. Get on Panther Peta Hiku, who has helped himself to tries in all of Penrith’s games so far this season, to dot down at any time at $2.88 with Sportsbet.
