2016 NRL Round 24 Betting Multi


Another 4/5 in our weekly NRL multi last weekend as the Warriors loss cost us over $450 in profit. We will attempt to go one better this weekend as we take advantage of multiple short priced favourites.

In our opening leg we will be predicting the Brisbane Broncos to get the job done against the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs. The Bulldogs managed to earn a golden point win against the Sea Eagles but they still haven’t proven they are a side that can claim the premiership this season. They have ups and downs throughout matches and their inability to apply pressure with repeat sets is a big downfall for the team. If the Broncos defence returns to its best it will be hard for the Bulldogs to penetrate it, especially not that the sides aren’t playing in the middle of the State of Origin period. The Broncos were ordinary in the first half against the Eels but their second half showing is what we had come to expect from the side. Anthony Milford and Ben Hunt recaptured the form that saw them dominant teams throughout the opening 10 rounds of the competition and if they can continue that into this weekend it should be a comfortable win for the home side.

The Penrith Panthers are fighting it out with the Wests Tigers for a finals position but both teams had very different outcomes over the weekend. The Panthers were able to get on a roll in the second half against the Knights and it lead to a comfortable victory as they handed the bottom placed side yet another hiding. On the other hand the Tigers suffered a loss to the Titans and they will be without James Tedesco for the remainder of the season. An accidental swinging arm broke Teddy’s jaw and all of the Tigers player’s will need to step up in order to fill the void left by the New South Wales fullback. In more positive news for the side, halfback Luke Brooks will return from injury to subside the blow but Teddy is the team’s X-factor and is capable of pulling a try out of nothing. Mitchell Moses continued his great form but it won’t be enough this weekend as the Panthers are strong in every position and will take out the victory.

In our third leg we will be backing against the Newcastle Knights and picking the Gold Coast Titans. The Knights are currently on their biggest losing streak in club history and are about to finish their worst ever season. It has been disaster after disaster for the club as injuries have hit the team hard as well as their roster not being up to scratch to compete against the best sides in the competition. Meanwhile the Titans are riding a high as they moved back into the top eight with a victory against the Tigers whilst it was their superstar Jarryd Hayne who kicked them to victory with a field goal in the dying seconds in his second match for the club. He is brought in for the fact he is a game winner and he has delivered almost immediately. He will be a huge reason for the team if they are able to continue their success this season but it needs to be recognised that Ashley Taylor has had a great year for a halfback at just 20-years old.

The North Queensland Cowboys are on a three game losing streak and have hit their worst form slump in over two years. However, they are the defending premiers and you should never write off a champion side and we are predicting them to bounce back this weekend against the New Zealand Warriors. The side has spent the last two weeks on the road and they are returning to a venue where they have lost just one game this year – a match where they played without Johnathan Thurston against the Melbourne Storm. Thurston will be disappointing with his latest performances and a person who chases perfection will want to improve drastically this weekend. The four-time Dally M medallist will produce this weekend, as the Warriors will slump without Isaac Luke to help Shaun Johnson steer the team around and contribute defensively in the middle of the ruck.

In our final leg we will be backing the Sydney Roosters to get the job done against the St George Illawarra Dragons. The two sides are coming off arguably their best wins of the year. Mitchell Pearce was instrumental in the Roosters earning the victory as he took advantage of his forward pack getting the upper hand. This is the area we are predicting the Roosters will excel, as their forward pack is intimidating compared with the Dragons. The Red V were able to unleash the shackles against the Sharks as they were involved in a high scoring match but we aren’t convinced they will find consistency in this area. It is a much safer bet sticking with the home side in this one.
