2016 NRL Round 18 Betting Multi


For the second straight week we predicted 4 of our 5-leg multi correct and missed out on a nice payday. This week there is only four matches due to half the teams having a bye but we still have our preview and NRL Round 18 multi of the week below.

In the first match we will be predicting the Sydney Roosters to compound the poor season of the Parramatta Eels by earning victory on Friday night. The Eels raced out to an 18-0 lead against the Sharks but that was as good as it got as they fell apart for the remainder of the match. They will be without Michael Jennings this weekend due to Origin duty whilst the Roosters were looking stronger with Mitchell Pearce returning from injury and Boyd Cordner is a slim chance of taking the field this weekend. Since the Eels lost Junior Paulo and Nathan Peats, they have lost a lot of impact in the middle of the field. Peats is one of the best defenders whilst Paulo was a damaging runner. The Roosters will get the advantage in the forward pack and if Pearce can repeat his performance from last week then the Roosters will create a lot of chances and earn their fourth victory of the season.

The Canterbury Bulldogs are on a four game winning streak and we are predicting them to make it five in a row this weekend and cement their spot in the top four on the ladder. They will be without Josh Jackson and David Klemmer who are representing New South Wales in State of Origin but the loss for the Wests Tigers is a lot worse as they will be without their captain Aaron Woods as well as James Tedesco and Robbie Farah. Tedesco is playing his first match for his state and he will be missed by the Tigers as he is their most dangerous player and has the capabilities of making his team score a lot of points. Meanwhile they will be without the leadership that Woods and Farah bring to the side. The Bulldogs have more depth in the forward pack and will be able to fill the void left by Jackson and Klemmer. On the back of this strong forward pack, the Bulldogs will have a platform for Moses Mbye and Josh Reynolds to create opportunities for their strong outside backs and with Josh and Brett Morris returning from injury to combine in attack, we see them winning this match comfortably.

In our third leg we will be predicting another favourite to win with the Penrith Panthers to end the Cronulla Sharks 12-game winning streak. The Sharks rewrote their history books as they strung together their longest winning streak in history as they won their 12th straight game this season on the weekend as they overcame an 18-point deficit to claim victory against the Eels on the weekend. However, the Sharks will be without five of their best players this weekend as they have been selected to represent the Blues in State of Origin. James Maloney, Paul Gallen, Wade Graham, Jack Bird and Andrew Fifita will all need to be replaced in this match up and it will leave a huge hole as these players play big minutes for their club and are a main reason for their success this season. Meanwhile the Panthers will be without just Josh Mansour after Matt Moylan was dropped for James Tedesco after just two games at the fullback position. Moylan will want to have a big match this weekend to prove his doubters wrong and regain his confidence. Nathan Cleary continued to have a strong performance despite his side losing to the Tigers last week as it was his outside backs that let him down, as they weren’t able to capitalise on the opportunities they created. Bryce Cartwright made an incredible 10-offloads but he was caught out defensively as he isn’t a natural five-eighth. The Sharks will no doubt be looking to target that area this weekend but with the Sharks missing the majority of their superstars we will be picking the home side to earn the two-points.

In our final leg we will be predicting another side that is hampered due to the State of Origin to lose as we are predicting the Canberra Raiders to win against the North Queensland Cowboys. The defending champions will be without Johnathan Thurston, Michael Morgan, Gavin Cooper, Matt Scott, James Tamou, Justin O’Neill and Kane Linnet due to Origin and injury. It is a massive blow for the side as they are without the majority of their starting line up and it leaves a massive hole that is nearly impossible to replace. They are without their leaders, forwards and creative players. The Raiders will be without Josh Papali but he is ruled out due to injury but wouldn’t be available regardless as he would be playing for Queensland. However, he will be the only player missing from the Green Machine as they will be close to full strength. They should get a massive advantage in the forwards against the weakened Cowboys outfit and their backs have shown they are capable of taking advantage of this. The Raiders should win this one comfortably as they look to move into the top four on the ladder.
