Panthers ($1.45), even without Gower, will have way too much zip.
Like the chances of Manly ($1.70) ending Melbourne's winning run at Brookvale .. Storm without Smith will struggle even though they're not the sort of side which relies heavily on individuals. Storm haven't won at Brookvale for a thousand years either.
Sharks ($2.50) are value plus against the Origin depleted Bulldogs, regardless of whether Kimmorley returns or not.
Wests Tigers should ask too many questions of the Warriors, although if the Kiwis can hold the ball they're always a chance.
On last week's evidence the Knights should rout the Raiders in Newcastle, but the visitors could be similar nuisance value as they were against Brisbane if the Knights turn up a bit complacent.
Roosters look a little in the "don't touch" category even at $1.50 against Souths.
Like Manly alot aswell Flamb,lets cash it champ!!!Sharks are definetely good value over the Dogs,those 2 bets do look like the standouts of the week,Rooster should crush the Rabbits,Liking the Wst Tigers over Warriors alot aswell mate!!!
