After the Roosters rubbish performance today, as i expected, this game will be very much a pressure cooker for both teams. Its at Telstra stadium , so the bulldogs have the slight edge. Both teams will need to turn it up. Ill wait till the week to make a suggested tip, i see the Handicap being +2.5 to the roosters, I do believe it will be a grand final repeat with the dogs winning.
Cowboys Wests Tigers
Well Wests are the giant killers, great defence, great running within the ruck and SCOTT PRINCE! man is he playing amazing football. Cowboys met the great defence of the Sharks and got flogged (Sharks at home will be a major force this year imo). Basically Cowboys will fire up and will give it to West Tigers, look for the line to be +4.5 -+ 6.5. Imo it will be the Cowboys will win this one by +6.
Great wins from Both teams this weekend. This game is a very tough call. Brisbance played awesome football, but come on Parra played the worst half of football i've ever seen. Depending what they Give the Dragons at home, ill be putting my money on St George, but only small. Around +5.5 start for Dragons
Knights V NZ Warriors
Well Knights are just down right awful. This will be the Knights first game at home this year and i expect them to lift. However ill wait to mid week for break downs. Expecting Knights +6.5
Rabbitohs V Panthers
Souths are Penriths voodoo team. +10.5 is way to generous for Souths vs Penrith. So depending on the line i think souths can cause my panthers problems. Expecting +10.5
Sea Eagles V Raiders
Expecting Raiders +2.5
Storm bounce back hard after losses, Parra got thumped today, However i think Parra can cause the biggest upset this season when they play down in Melbourne expect stupid lines of like +14.5 and +16.5
The lines thus far i have found are
Bulldogs Vs Roosters Pick (dogs favourite)
Cowboys Vs Tigers +6.5 as expected
Dragons Vs Broncos Pick (Brisbane favourite)
Knights Vs Warriors +2.5 I cant beileve this line, pouding Warriors
Souths Vs Penrith -6 This looks great
Manly Vs Canberra +4.5 Man Raiders are really winning me cash, they can easily beat manly imo.
Storm Vs Eels +12 Very dead on line here, can go either way, i expect the line 2 move 2 +14.5 then ill take it
I am going to hammer the crap out of -6 Penrith(Its my team) +2.5 Warriors, Cowboys ML and Bulldogs ML. Ill break down the games around friday
As mentioned Souths are Penriths Voodoo team just as Tigers are 2 Dogs.
Penirth are missing thier 2 key fowards in Puletua & Galuvao which will be a problem towards the end. Penriths starting line up if much better than Souths but its the bench im concerned about. Ive seen all the Panthers bench play, but rigon and logan from Souths are very good metre gainers. Penrith will have the advantage thru the backs, with all players in good form. Penriths is 0 from 3 @ Aussie stadium since last year, with one loss Vs Souths by 30-6. Priddis will be key to getting my panthers over the line, souths have rubbish defence within the ruck and you dont want Priddis to take advantages of that.
Penrith -4.5 this should drop to -4 or -3.5 then ill jump on it. Its up to the backs in this one and a big game from Pritchard. Also taking Penrith by 1-12 also puttin wagers on Lewis and Rooney to score more tries than thier opposite numbers.
Cowboys Vs Tigers
I was going to hammer the Cowboys ML like no tomorrow, because imo they were gonna turn around thier loss to the Sharkies & rip up the Tigers. Sorry But it aint gonna happen! Cowboys have 5 starters out, major ones being Ty Williams and Hannay. Hannay is always crucial in a good Cowboys victory because of his boot, But with no Hannay the 100% kicking of Hodgson gives the tigers an advangtage.
Taking the Giant killing Tigers +7.5 Cowboys could still win but +7.5 is to hard 2 pass by
Melbourne Vs Parra
Im going for the biggest upset of the season with Parra ML
$4.50 & +14.5 but it will rise to 16 imo
Bg I havent heard that about Priddis and Gower. I know Priddis played with the flu last week and he still had a stellar game. Priddis can handle sickness and same with craig very tough players. However i am waiting for the line to drop. I have already wagered 3 units on Penrith by 1-12 and 2units on Rooney and Lewis. Waiting for the line to Drop...
