Sportsbet Round 25

The Bet King’s NRL betting Pick of the Week for Round 25 will see us look at the Dragons to beat the Titans – both by a big margin and by utilising a Sportsbet offer that will give us our cash back up to $100 on head-to-head bets if the Dragons lead at half time but go on to lose.

With only two weeks to go, everything is on the line this Sunday when the St George Illawarra Dragons travel to the Gold Coast to take on the Titans. After 14 meetings the Dragons have a clear dominance over the Titans, winning 10 including the last two 19-18 and 34-6.

The Titans aren’t faring too well, losing three of their last five. They have, however, won their last two home games, beating the Raiders 28-12 last week and the Eels 24-14 in round 21.Sitting on just 20 premiership points the Titans wont be making a post season appearance.

This week will be all about crushing the dreams of the Dragons. Subject to passing a fitness test second-rower and Origin star Nate Myles will play his last home game in Titans colours before moving south to play for Manly next season.

The fact the Dragons aren’t guaranteed a finals spot is ridiculous. 12 weeks ago they were sitting clear at the top of the NRL ladder and were in fantastic form. Now however they are
sitting in 8th position and have won only 3 games since round 12. Last week they knocked off the Panthers, winning 19-12. The Dragons don’t mind traveling. Only a couple of week ago they faced off against the Warriors in Auckland defeating them 36-0.

Only a couple of changes in the Dragons line up this week – veteran winger Jason Nightingale comes in for Justin Hunt and Joel Thompson will replace Jake Marketo who is suspended for his lifting tackle on Penrith’s Lelani Latu last week.

It’s all coming up Dragons in this one. We expect the Dragons to put on a show and overpower the Titans. The Titans home field advantage shouldn’t be too much of a factor in this one. Watch as the Dragons score hard and fast and just about guarantee themselves a finals appearance.
