2016 NRL Round 20 Betting Multi


The NRL bye rounds are behind us, as we will have a full compliment of eight matches every week for the remainder of the 2016 NRL season. Below we have previewed five of the best value matches to create our NRL Multi of the Week using the Sportsbet promotion.

To kick things off this week we will be backing the North Queensland Cowboys to remain undefeated on their home soil for the 2016 NRL season by defeating the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs. The Cowboys will be looking to turn things up a notch now that the Origin period has passed and they will no longer have the distraction of half the side coming in and out of the squad. Meanwhile the Bulldogs are the dark horse in the competition and quietly gone about their job and have moved into the top four. Their forward pack is one of the biggest in the competition and it will be a big match up between both of these sides this weekend. However, we will be sticking with the home side that has averaged over 30-points at their stadium and are undefeated.

The Brisbane Broncos were able to right their ship last week and return to winning ways. However, it was against an injury ravaged Rabbitohs outfit that was without their captain Greg Inglis who will be suspended for another two games. The Broncos defence was able to hold the Bunnies to just 10-points which is a positive after they leaked over 40-points in their previous two matches. They will be returning to Suncorp stadium for the first time since their embarrassing 48-6 loss against the Storm, which is their worst defeat on home soil in their history. They will be desperate to make amends for this and unfortunately for the Panthers they will be on the wrong end of it. Anthony Milford hasn’t been able to recapture the form he showed in the first third of the season but he will be licking his lips at the opportunity of facing Bryce Cartwright in the defensive line up as the back rower will be defending in the five-eighth position.

In the third leg of our multi we will be backing the Raiders to come out on top in Canberra against the Warriors. The Green Machine had a week off last week for the bye and it came at a great time as the team was without Josh Papalii due to injury. The big forward will return to the line up this weekend and it will benefit the side drastically. The Warriors suffered a disappointing loss on the weekend against the Sea Eagles as they were unable to capitalise on the opportunities they created to earn the victory. The team was playing in terrible conditions, which definitely doesn’t play into their hands, as they are one of the more flamboyant teams in the competition. It should be a high scoring and entertaining contest between these two sides but the home team will come out on top.

The Storm are another side that will be glad the Origin period is over as Cameron Smith and Cooper Cronk will be with the squad to lead them into the finals series. They haven’t been rested this season as the two players are so competitive they want to play every game and luckily for the Storm they did last week as they were almost upset by the competition cellar dwellers the Newcastle Knights. Will Chambers and Cameron Munster also returned from injury last week and they will have their timing and fitness back after playing a game at the top level. They are up against the Roosters, a side they defeated 46-0 just over a month ago and it will be hard for the Chookies to take a victory away from the Storm in Melbourne and they will remain in second last spot on the ladder.

In our last leg we will be backing the Sea Eagles to win their second straight match in the NRL as they take on the Bunnies. The Rabbitohs will be without their captain Greg Inglis due to suspension and it is unknown whether Adam Reynolds will be fit to take the field on Monday night. He will have an extra few days to get the nod to be able to play but the side is still without a lot of key players. The Burrow still has hopes of reaching the finals this season but it is almost certainly out of reach and the Sea Eagles will be the more desperate side for the two competition points as it would put them in a great position for the remaining six games of the year.
