2016 NRL Round 16 Betting Multi

Last week we were unsuccessful with out multi with just one leg failing. We were unlucky as Cameron Munster and Blake Green were both ruled out an hour before kick off against the Dragons and their chances of winning without their entire spine was incredibly low. It was unfortunate but we look to bounce back with a win this weekend with our NRL Round 16 multi of the week.

In the first leg of our multi we will be backing the Penrith Panthers to earn a victory at home against the struggling South Sydney Rabbitohs. The Panthers pulled off a miraculous comeback in their last match two weeks ago against the Sea Eagles. They were trailing by 20-points and scored 27 unanswered to earn the seven-point victory. Nathan Cleary needs to be given a lot of credit for producing a great performance in just his second NRL match whilst Matt Moylan was dangerous as always in the fullback position. The Rabbitohs haven’t been able to find any consistency this season as they are making far too many errors and aren’t as strong as they used to be. Their attack is poor and they haven’t been solid in defence either allowing big score lines against them on multiple occasions. Greg Inglis and Adam Reynolds will be backing up from Origin, which won’t help the Rabbitohs as the Panthers will be too strong in front of their home crowd.

The Newcastle Knights have just one win this season and we are predicting them to suffer another loss against the St George Illawarra Dragons on Saturday. The Knights haven’t had much to cheer about this year and their defence is by far the worst in the competition as they are averaging over 35-points scored against them each match. They have conceded over 50-points twice on home soil this season and they are up against the Dragons who have won 14 of the 17 clashes at Hunter stadium. However, in a boost for the Knights the Dragons have struggled to score points this season which could mean they could avoid another embarrassing score line. In an interesting match up, Tariq Sims will be facing his former club just two weeks after walking out on them.

The Brisbane Broncos will be on the road against the Canterbury Bulldogs and they will have six players backing up from Origin duty. Coach Wayne Bennett has preferred in the past to rest his star players after the big midweek match but with the Broncos falling away from the top spot he could elect to play them all this weekend. The Broncos bounced back to winning ways in their last match against the Raiders after three straight defeats. Meanwhile the Bulldogs have improved in their performances in the midpoint of the season as they are begging to find some consistency. The Dogs earned a big win against the Dragons in their last match as their forward pack was too strong and they played with a lot of freedom and often looked for the offload. If the Bulldogs are willing to chances their arm they may come up with a shock victory but we are predicting the Broncos defence to be too strong as the Bulldogs struggle to maintain pressure on their opponents.

The Canberra Raiders will be on the road against the Gold Coast Titans in a seventh versus 8th match up and we will be backing the higher side the Raiders to earn the victory. The Titans have surprised everyone this season as they were expected to be on the bottom of the table but find themselves in 8th position more than halfway through the season. The injuries and losses they had over the offseason have opened the doors for other players to make a name for themselves and Ashley Taylor has taken his opportunity with both hands as the rookie has been superb in leading the side around. However, their forward pack may not have enough punch to stick with the Raiders side that has been bolstered recently by the return of Jeff Lima, Iosio Solioa and the signing of Junior Paulo. On the back of their monster pack the Raiders will be able to score a lot of points and if their defence can match it they will come away with the win.

In our final leg we will be backing the North Queensland Cowboys to earn victory on home soil against the struggling Manly Sea Eagles. The Cowboys will have five players backing up from Origin duty but it shouldn’t affect the side too much as they will have five days to rest and prepare for the contest. The Cowboys have averaged over 30-points on home soil this year and are undefeated at the venue. Meanwhile the Sea Eagles suffered their sixth straight loss on Monday night and looked awful in both attack and defence. They are down on troops due to injury and it would be a massive upset for them to pull off a win in this one.
