2016 NRL Round 19 Betting Multi


There are six NRL matches this weekend and we will be able to take advantage of the Sportsbet Promotion that gives us cash back up to $50 if one leg fails! Our NRL Round 19 multi of the week is below.

To kick things off we will be backing the St George Illawarra Dragons to get the job done on home soil against the Gold Coast Titans. The Dragons may have lost their last match in embarrassing fashion but they have been able to get the job done this season on home soil and despite their lack of attack they sit in the top eight. They will no doubt have learned a lot from their performances against the Sea Eagles and the bye week off would have given them a lot of opportunities to improve in those areas. Meanwhile the Titans have impressed a lot of people with their development this season but their injuries are beginning to pile up as they are running out of options in the outside backs. They already had two youngers in the centres but they have gone down with season ending injuries as they were forced to play back rowers in the centres. This was an area that they were exploited, as they didn’t have enough speed out wide to defend whilst they didn’t have much in attack either. The Dragons got the job done against the Titans earlier in the season on the road and they should replicate that on home soil.

The New Zealand Warriors have stuck to what they know best and that is midseason revivals as they have climbed back into the top eight. The side always gets an advantage against a lot of their opponents during the origin period, as they normally don’t lose many players and this season it is only Jacob Lillyman who has been selected to represent his state. The Warriors key players are beginning to find their best form as Isaac Luke has started to dominate and has been darting out of dummy half to get his side on the front foot whilst Bodene Thompson has taken his game to another level recently and is a real threat on the right edge. However, it all starts with Shaun Johnson and despite being hampered by a quad injury he has been able to have a huge impact on his sides recent victories. The Manly Sea Eagles were able to snap a six-game losing streak with a massive win over the Dragons two weeks ago but their joy was short lived as Brett Stewart was ruled out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury whilst Dylan Walker broke his hand punching his door after a night out drinking. Walker will miss at least 4-weeks as the injury list grows. We will be predicting the away side to come away with the two competition points in this one.

In our third leg we will be taking essentially a ‘sure thing’ by backing the Melbourne Storm to defeat the Newcastle Knights. The Storm will have Cooper Cronk and Cameron Smith backing up from State of Origin but that shouldn’t deter the side that has already won two matches after Origin this season. The Storm has by far the best defence in the competition and their latest victory against the Broncos was dominant. They defeated the Grand Finalists from last year 48-6 at Suncorp Stadium as the Storm sent out a statement to the rest of the competition as they were without a lot of key stars that will be returning in the coming weeks. The Knights were able to put together an improved performance last week but they blew a 22-0 lead against the Raiders to suffer another loss. There is no way they will be able to stand a chance against the Storm side as they will fall by a big margin.

The Penrith Panthers had their second straight poor performance, as they weren’t able to snap the winning streak of the Sharks. The Panthers were expected to win as the Sharks were without five of their stars who were away on Origin duty. It was disappointing of the Panthers as they missed out on an opportunity to push into the top eight and they will be feeling the pressure this weekend as they take on the Eels who have nothing to lose after being stripped of 12-competition points last week. They are still a chance of reaching the finals but nearly every game is a must win for them which will see them continue to attack. However, another controversial story in the media surrounding Corey Norman and Semi Radradra suffering a knee injury that will keep him out for up to six weeks is another massive blow to the club. The Panthers will be able to get the job done on home soil as they return to winning ways and end the Eels hopes of playing in the finals series.

The Sharks were expected to have their winning streak end last week as they were without five of their stars. However, Ben Barba starred for his side as he crossed for two tries and laid on another in a man of the match performance. He has been great all season, as he has recaptured his speed and confidence that he showed in 2012 when he won the Dally M medal. The rest of the team has clearly bought into the system, as they were able to produce a great performance without their big names. They are taking on the Sydney Roosters this weekend who have been competitive in their recent matches but they haven’t been able to get the job done as they have lost three straight games by a combined margin of just 8-points. The Sharks will have five players backing up for Origin but luckily for them they have a 5-day turn around and it shouldn’t affect them too much as they will make it 14 in a row.
