2016 NRL Round 14 Betting Tips

June 11, 2016 by Posted in Betting Tips, NRL Tips


South Sydney Rabbitohs Vs Wests Tigers (Friday, June 10 at 7:50PM AEST)

At the beginning of the season, this one would have looked like a one sided affair. The Rabbitohs would be the clear winners. Nowadays its a little harder to tell. While the Tigers are having roughly the season most predicted, the Rabbitohs have dropped off substantially.

Sitting 5-7 with a -6 point differential the Bunnies are struggling. Manly due to their inconsistent performances. Competitive one week, lackluster the next. Last weekend they took on the Titans in Perth. In a high scoring match, the Rabbitohs conceded the opening three tries, followed by a dominate 2nd half before eventually losing a golden point in the 88th minute via an Ashley Taylor field goal. The Rabbitohs have stuck with the same line up as last weekend. We are expecting to again see Sam Burgess elevate his game. Last weekend he had 260 metres gained, 53 tackles while playing the entire 88 minutes.

Over at the Tigers, they are also coming off a tough loss last weekend as they went down to the Roosters. James Tedesco crossed the line in the 63rd minute to add to his impressive tally of 10 tries this season. Robbie Farrah has been named to return this weekend after being rested last week. Tim Grant has also been named on an extended bench with JJ Felise being omitted.

We are expecting the Rabbitohs to over-power the Tigers. Defensively the Tigers have struggled in recent weeks and with the Rabbitohs recent shuffle, shifting GI to five-eight and Cody walker to fullback, we have seen an improvement in their attack.

Bet On: South Sydney Rabbitohs 13+ – $3.10 at CrownBet

Sydney Roosters Vs Melbourne Storm (Saturday, June 11 at 7:30PM AEST)

This one is just about as clear cut as you can get in the NRL. It’s the second-place Melbourne Storm taking on the 15th place Sydney Roosters. Storm are looking like a competition favourite where the Roosters are lucky to not be the Wooden spoon favourite.

Defensively the Storm are the best team in the league. They average 353 tackles per game, while conceding only an average of 1.92 tries per season. Compare that with their attacking stat being an average of 1578 metres and 3.92 tries per game and you ca see why they’ve managed to be so dominate this season. The Roosters, on the other hand, make a similar amount of tackles per game but struggle as they concede an average of four tries per game.

Storm was menacing last week when they took on the Panthers. Despite backing up from Origin, both Copper Cronk and Cam Smith were superb. Cameron Munster continued his growth at fullback. The real menaces were Jesse Bromwich and Tohu Harris. They moved the ball a combined 396 metres, had 55 tackles and a try.

In a game that was played in the wet, the Roosters were surprisingly good and managed to over come the Tigers 32-18. Sio Siua Taukeiaho’s kicking game was exceptional as he converted five tries and kicked a penalty goal to top it off. Mitchell Frei has been included as part of the 17- man squad with Isaac Liu being omitted.

While we believe the Current weather in Sydney will slow down the Storm on Saturday night, we don’t think it will impact the overall outcome of this one.

Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles Vs Penrith Panthers (June 12 at 4:00PM AEST)

Manly suffered another blow last weekend as Daly Cherry Evans, Jamie Lyon and Brenton Lawrence all went down with injuries. DCE got the vsitors off to a fast start before an ankle injury ended his night. Brenton was next to drop with a pectoral injury that will see him sidelined for the remainder of the season, while Lyon’s hamstring gave out in the second half.

These injuries will again see a major reshuffle. Apisai Koroisau will shift to half back, Jorge Taufua will slot on to the wing. Addin Fonua-Blake and Blake Leary have also been named on an extended bench.

The Panthers were overcome by Melbourne last weekend. Despite Josh Mansour scoring the first try of the match, the Panthers spent most of the eight minutes being pummeled into the pitch. Penrith isn’t with out their own woes. Jamie Soward was dropped earlier in the week for, funnily enough, not being selfish enough. Both Soward and James Segeyaro will take the fill for the Panther’s reserves side. Moses Leota and Sitaleki Akauola have been named in the 17 man lineup replacing Soward and Sam Mckendry.

If Penrith can get off to a quick start they are strong enough to just about lock up the 2 points in the first half. We’re expecting Manly to lift, but cant see them getting the edge on Penrith this weekend.

Bet On: Penrith Panthers -4.5 – $1.92 at CrownBet
