2017 NRL Multi Round 21

The 2017 NRL season continues this weekend and we take a look at the best value head to head matches for our weekly NRL Betting Multi.

To kick things off we will be predicting the Penrith Panthers to get the better of the Canterbury Bulldogs on Thursday night. The Bulldogs season is all but over and there is continued turmoil and questions surrounding their coach Des Hasler despite him signing an extension earlier this season. The style of footy they play is boring to watch and it is no surprise they have the worst attack in the league. Meanwhile the Panthers have the ability to score from anywhere on the park. They have a lot of talent and it is easily forgotten they were competition favourites heading into this season. They are on the cusp of the top eight and we think they will comfortably earn the competition points in this one.

In the second leg of our multi we will be backing the Cronulla Sharks on the road against the New Zealand Warriors. The Sharks have managed to grind out a lot of victories this season without them hitting their full potential. They will need to be at their grinding best in this one as they will be without James Maloney as he broke his hand in their victory over the Rabbitohs last week. However, the Warriors will be without halfback Shaun Johnson and despite the side putting together a brave performance last week, we don’t think they will be able to back it up again.

In the third leg of our multi we will be taking the Brisbane Broncos against the Parramatta Eels. The blue and yellow have almost secured their spot in the finals series but they were dealt a massive blow last week with Clint Gutherson suffering a season ending ACL injury. He has been their best player this season and filled in across the backline. His injury will force Bevan French back to fullback and even though he is a great scorer, Gutherson will be missed. Meanwhile the Broncos flexed their muscles last week as they crushed the Bulldogs on home soil. They will continue to build momentum as they head towards the finals and it will start with another win here.

We will continue our trend of backing sides that play against the Newcastle Knights and get on board the St George Illawarra Dragons for Saturday afternoon’s meeting. The Dragons won’t take this match lightly after they faced an 18-point deficit heading into half-time when these two sides last met. True to the nature of the Knights, they managed to lose the match from there and we can’t see them upsetting a Dragons side that bounced back to form with a thumping win over the Sea Eagles last week.

In our fifth and final leg we will be predicting the Manly Sea Eagles to bounce back and defeat the Melbourne Storm. The Sea Eagles are outsiders in this one but the side has bounced back from losses to earn surprise victories all season. They dropped to sixth place with their loss last week and they won’t want to lose touch of the top four with back-to-back defeats. Meanwhile the Storm suffered a loss with Billy Slater being unable to be named for the contest as he overcomes concussion while there is still a chance Cameron Smith would be ruled out. If those two players aren’t on the field for the Storm they will be vulnerable.
