2017 NRL Round 11 Betting Tips

May 16, 2017 by Posted in NRL Tips

The 2017 NRL season enters the final round before the attention turns to State of Origin and the bye period. We take a look at the best value matches of NRL Round 11 and offer our Preview and Betting Tips.

Cronulla Sharks vs North Queensland Cowboys (Thursday 7.50pm AEST)

The Sharks will enter this match as favourites after earning a victory against the Dragons in their last start. The Sharks have been cruising under the radar this season, despite being the defending premiers. They have been inconsistent at times but put together strong performances against the tougher opposition, which includes a victory against the Storm in Melbourne earlier this year. We are predicting them to put together another one of their better showings, but it will be a hard task against a healthy Cowboys outfit.

Johnathan Thurston travelled with the Cowboys to Sydney on Tuesday and he is expected to take the field earlier than expected with a quick recovery from a shoulder injury. He is obviously a huge boost for the side and it comes a week after Lachlan Coote and Jake Granville made successful returns to the side. The two played a huge role in taking the pressure off of Michael Morgan and contributed to them cruising to victory over the Bulldogs on the road. It won’t be as easy for them this time around, but the Cowboys will earn the two competition points.

Brisbane Broncos vs Wests Tigers (Friday 7.50pm AEST)

The Broncos will enter this match on the back of a five game winning streak and they will be full of confidence heading into this one after turning around a 14-0 deficit against the Sea Eagles into a 24-14 victory. The side aimed up in defence and did enough in attack to come away with the victory on home soil. The Broncos have been without Ben Hunt throughout this stretch and Kodi Nikorima has played well in his absence. However, the real dominance has come from their forward pack which has aimed up in the middle of the field and allowed their outside backs to excel on the back of their hard work.

Meanwhile the Wests Tigers will be competing against the Broncos minus Mitchell Moses who was granted his early release from his contract. The youngster had been expressing his desire to leave for over a month and it was finally allowed on Tuesday. The Tigers will now be starved for halves but in a positive Aaron Woods will line up earlier than expected. He will bring a lot of punch in the middle of the field but unfortunately for the Tigers they won’t be able to match it with the Broncos in this area, or in the backs.

Newcastle Knights vs Penrith Panthers (Sunday 2pm AEST)

The Knights picked up their third win in two seasons last week after they were able to overcome the Raiders in a tough contest. It was a huge victory for the club who had been putting in a lot of effor so far this season. Unfortunately for them they face a side that defeated them 40-0 earlier this season and we are predicting a similar score line in this one. The Knights still have a very young side and unfortunately for them they will be caught out on Sunday.

The Panthers trailed 28-6 at half time but pulled off one of the more spectacular comebacks you will see. The side put points on the Warriors with ease and they proved what they are capable of when the ball sticks in their hands. They did the same to the Broncos a fortnight earlier, but they fell short in that match. They will need to improve on their starts and work through the grind of the match but ulitmately they are a dangerous prospect to come up against and if they are to make a run for the finals, it will start with a big victory against the Knights.

TIP: Panthers at the line (-10) – $1.90 at Sportsbet
