2016 NRL Round 8 Betting Multi


The 2016 NRL multi continues this weekend as we have reached round 8 of the competition. We narrowly missed out on a $618 payday last week as we lost just one leg of our multi. Continue reading as we look to go one better this week with our NRL Round 8 Betting Multi.

To start out multi off this week we will be backing the Broncos to win on home soil and continue their great start to the season. They are coming off the back of a 53-0 victory against the Knights as they put on their best attacking display of the year. Anthony Milford and Ben Hunt are continuing to dominate in the halves whilst the rest of their back line is paying dividends because of that. However, a lot of that success needs to be credited to their forward pack that is laying a great platform, gaining a lot of metres whilst working for the quick play the balls. However, the same can’t be said for the Rabbitohs that have struggled this season with injuries playing their part in the sides lack of success. They are currently at their worst head-to-head odds since 2009 and we are expecting them to lose by a large score line this weekend when they face a similar opponent to what defeated them by 26-points last week. The Broncos will come out on top on home soil in this one.

The Raiders will enter this weekend’s match on the back of two losses by large margins but we are backing them to turn things around against the Tigers. The Raiders were without Blake Austin but he will return to the side on Saturday and bolster their attack. The Green Machine will need to improve defensively but if it turns into a shoot out match we are backing the Raiders to have more points in them than their opponents. The Tigers put on their best performance since the second week of the year as they showed a lot more composure, especially when the game was on the line. However, it wasn’t enough, as the young side still hasn’t found a way to take their game to another level for a consistent period of time.

The Eels are arguably the most improved side of the competition and a lot of their success has come down to their solid defence. They are second in that area conceding just two more points than the Broncos. However, they will face their biggest challenge of the season so far as they head to Townsville to take on the defending champions. It is the first time the Eels will leave Sydney this season as they have had a favourable draw with little travel across the opening seven rounds. These two sides faced in the second round of the competition with the Eels earning the victory. Beau Scott was again causing havoc for Johnathan Thurston in that match as the NSW back rower has a way of getting under the Dally M player’s skin. They will need him to do the same this weekend but the Cowboys have proved this season that they don’t need to rely as heavily on the star playmaker. Michael Morgan has regained his best form whilst Lachlan Coote always does his job and gets his hands on the ball a lot. We are predicting the defending champions to continue their unbeaten streak on home soil.

The Sharks are currently sitting in third position on the ladder and are one of the stronger sides in the competition. They have a great balance across the park with one of the biggest, athletic and strongest forward packs in the competition whilst they have a young and skilful back line that constantly has a lot of impact in the match. Ben Barba is continuing to grow in confidence every week and whilst he may never recapture the form that saw him win the Dally M medal in 2012, he is becoming a solid fullback and attacking weapon. Meanwhile Jack Bird is one of the most dangerous players in their side and looks threatening whenever he has a little bit of space and the ball in his hands. The Panthers won on Monday night against the Roosters but they should have won by a lot more. Their inability to close out matches will come back to haunt them as the Sharks will show too much class.

In the last leg of our multi we will be backing the Roosters to earn their second win of the season against the Dragons. It will be the traditional Anzac Day clash that always gives us an entertaining encounter and it will also be the return of new captain Boyd Cordner and international Jared Warea-Hargreaves. The two will give a much-needed punch to their offence whilst they will improve their defence as they are experienced campaigners. They currently have the second worst defence in the competition but that will improve with these two back in the side. They are up against one of the weaker forward packs in the competition and they should get a lot of momentum in this area and off the back of that Jackson Hastings and Latrell Mitchell will thrive. The Dragons do have a solid defensive outfit but they lack the ability to score points and we are predicting the Roosters to be too desperate in this one.
