Best NRL Round 9 Betting Tips

South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Manly Sea Eagles (Friday 6pm AEST)
The Bunnies will be out for vengence this weekend after their tough loss last week. They were on the wrong end of a number of decisions in their one point defeat at the hands of the Broncos. It was a tough pill to swallow for a side that has been struggling this season and in one of their best performances they were essentially robbed. They will take confidence into this match having beat the Sea Eagles earlier this season, in a come from behind victory.

Meanwhile the Sea Eagles bounced back to form last week against the Raiders on the road. Manly has been hot and cold this year and extremely hard to predict. Their form has bounced up and down on the back of the performances of Daly Cherry-Evans. However, it was their forward pack that stood up last week and their defence was at its best as they stopped one of the best attacking teams in the competition. We are predicting a similar performance this weekend and for the Sea Eagles to get over the line in a tight one.

TIP: Sea Eagles to win at the margin (1-12) – $3.10 at Sportsbet

Gold Coast Titans vs Newcastle Knights (Saturday 3pm AEST)
The Knights seem to be playing to the same script every week. They are competitive against a strong side, hit the lead early, fall asleep just before half time and into the second half before stepping up a gear late in the match only to fall short. It has happened to them all season, except for in their one victory. We are predicting them to have a similar storyline this Saturday, except they will be on the wrong end of a bigger scoreline with their key players hitting the sidelines with injury. Mitch Barnett joins Jamie Buhrer and they will be without two of their key forward pack members while Trent Hodkinson will play NSW Cup this weekend.

The Titans put on one of their best performances of the season last week and it was no coincidence that it was in Jarryd Hayne’s return. We are predicting him to ciontinue these strong performances as he wants to earn selection for NSW in the State of Origin. The side is still suffering a lot of injurys but Ryan James and Konrad Hurrell make their return too. They will be too strong at home and earn a big victory in this one.

TIP: Titans to win at the line (-13.5) – $1.90 at William Hill

New Zealand Warriors vs Sydney Roosters (Sunday 2pm AEST)
The Warriors almost upset the Storm on the road on Anzac Day but it wasn’t to be as they fell away in the final 10 minutes. Their attack was strong as they created plenty of opportunities and their defence was just as good. Keiran Foran is definitely making his presence felt on the field and we believe he will be instrumental in the side’s win this Sunday. Shaun Johnson has been let of his reigns as Foran takes on a lot of the control of the side. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is continuing to build confidence after he missed the majority of the season last year with an ACL tear and started off the season missing a pair of games due to concussion.

Meanwhile the Roosters earned a golden point victory over the Dragons in an exciting match. However, they may not have secured the victory if Gareth Widdop didn’t go off due to injury at the end of the first half. They struggled to capitalise on their opportunities and it took a bit of luck for them to hit the lead. Their defence has been caught out this season and the Warriors will make them pay.

TIP: Warriors to win at the margin (1-12) – $3.40 at Sportsbet
