2016 NRL Round 10 Betting

The NRL is back after a week off for the annual representative round, during which we saw the Aussies lock out the Kiwis in a 16-0 and the City showed the Country who’s best with a 44-30 victory. This week, however, we are back to playing for plain old premiership points as we offer 2016 NRL Round 10 betting tips!

Parramatta Eels Vs South Sydney Rabbitohs (Friday, May 13 at 7:50pm AEST)

After starting the season with big wins, the Rabbitohs have dramatically fallen away. They have lost four in a row with their last win coming back in round 5 when they narrowly beat Manly 16-12. With this in mind, and after a strong showing during last weekend’s Test match, Coach Michael Maguire has elected to shift Greg Inglis to five-eighth – a move which sends Alex Johnson to fullback and shifts Luke Keary to the bench. Paul Carter is back in the side in the second row and Jack Gosiewksi will make his NRL debut. Jason Clark has also been named on the bench, with Chris Grevsmuhl, Damien Cook, David Tyrrell and Patrice Siolo set to miss the match.

The Eels, meanwhile, will be very eager to get on the field and show how they’re going to move forward after the devastating news last week of a salary cap scandal. Despite a lot of changes that will have to be made during the coming weeks, the Eels have only made one change this week with Tepai Moeroa coming in to lock to replace Tim Mannah.

History says the Rabbitohs will get up on Friday night. They’ve won 9 of the last 10 against the Eels and they are bigger, stronger and faster. History also says teams tend to bounce back after off field issues as a way of bonding together and showing their support. We’re expecting this one to be close as both teams have plenty to fight for.

Bet On: Either team by under 6.5 – $2.90 at CrownBet

Melbourne Storm Vs North Queensland Cowboys (Saturday, May 14 at 5.30pm AEST)

Craig Bellamy has had plenty of work to do this season. During the first nine rounds of the 2016 season, the Storm have sent out eight different back combinations due to injuries. The Cowboys, however, have needed to make minimal changes so far and have stuck with the same line up for the last month. Storm will also enter this match with no lineup changes.

The Storm are coming off two camp shattering performances beating the Warriors 42-0 and the Titans 38-0 during rounds 8 and 9. Defensively, Strom is crushing the opposition with 3137 Tackles compared to the Cowboys 2840, though both teams have conceded the same amount of tries with 19 tries against.

With this one being played at Suncorp, neither side really has a home field advantage, which potentially makes it the most even version of these two side facing off. If Suncorp can draw a crowd, it will certainly feel like a final and not just a final rematch.

With the strongest attack in the competition, the Cowboys wont worry about if they’ll cross the line, but more when they’ll cross the line. Storm’s defence is on fire but the Cowboys will just punch through it. This one will be fantastic to watch and we’re expecting the cowboys to just scrape away with the points.

Bet On: North Queensland Cowboys 1-12 – $3.15 at Ladbrokes

Wests Tigers vs Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs (Sunday, May 15 at 4:00pm AEST)

With the league leading try scorer out this weekend, you’d think the Tigers would be worried, but not this week as they’re set to welcome back star Origin prop Aaron Woods, along with the freak Mitchell Moses who has gone from zero to hero this season as well as Justin Hunt and Tim Grant. Elijah Taylor will make up an extended bench. James Tedesco, JJ Felise, Michael Chee-kam and Asipeli Fine are all out.

We certainly didn’t expect the Tigers to be having such a good season this year. James Tedesco has been a bullet for the opposition, as nobody seems to be able to stop him. When he went down with a shoulder injury during last week’s game, I expected the then injury depleted Tigers to slow right down and let the Rabbitohs get back into the game. To some extent that did happen as the Tigers conceded three tries in the second half and only managed to put two on themselves. Being without Tedesco this weekend will hurt their attack. But the inclusion of Aaron Woods will raise their defence and Mitchell Moses paired with Luke Brooks will ad some flash to their attack.

Canterbury, howeverm is very up and down. They snatched victory against the Titans in Round 8 but then went down to the Eels in Round 9. They will need to improve their ball handling and make the most of their possessions if they plan to beat the Tigers. The Bulldogs tend to start games strongly, but midway through will have a few bad sets and then they’re just playing catchup. The Bulldogs are with out Will Hopoat and have named Sam Perrett in his place. Lloyd Perrett and Craig Garvey making up the extended bench.

This one has the ability to be a monster Sunday afternoon showdown. We like the Tigers to get the win. On paper it looks like a bit of an upset ,but the Tigers are such a well-rounded team this season they’ll be able to cover any gaps left by Tedesco and the others.

Bet On: Wests Tigers +9.5 – $1.92 at Ladbrokes

Gold Coast Titans vs Sydney Roosters (Monday, May 16 at 7:00pm AEST)

The boys from Bondi staged an impressive performance last time out, taking down the Knights 38-0 at home. Jared Waerea-Hargreaes made his return from injury after going down with a ACL last August. Mitchell Pearce also had a successful return after his Australia Day antics kept him off the field. Pearce has a long road ahead of him to regain the trust of his teammates, administration and the Roosters supporters, but he showed he’s still got it on the field. He scored the second try of the night and in his 76 minutes managed 129 metres, 13 tackles and a try assist. The Roosters have made a couple of changes this week with Shaun Kenny-Dowall out, Daniel Tupou will cover the wing and Connor Watson has been named on an extended bench.

The Titans took an almighty beating against the Storm in Round 9, going down 38-0. The Titans were a shamble, they lacked direction and ability. With only one playing change, the Titans have named David Shillington to replace Lachlan Burr at prop. Anthony Don and Eddy Pettybourne will make up the extended bench.

We expect a similar performance from the Titans this week. The Rooster’s lack the class of the Storm but will manage to contain the Titans in attack. This one will likely be a very lacklustre event, though with 2 points on the table, both teams will attempt to string a performance together. Going with the Roosters.

Bet On: Sydney Roosters -6.5 – 1.94 at CrownBet
