As far as tonight's game goes .. on principle alone, the Wests Tigers deserve support with the +7.5 tonight against the Eels. The prices in this game reflect a side that's turned the corner, the Eels certainly haven't. The big 'if' though is how the premiers will perform without Hodgson in the lineup. Still, their up tempo approach and speed around the rucks should worry Parramatta.

Good call Flamboyant, Farrah is going to cause hell around the ruck. I dont like John Morris playing hooker, but if that means a ginuine 5/8 is playing thats good. This will be Smiths biggest game of his career and hopefully he can get Tahu and the putside backs some more ball. I like Eels -7.5 with the return of the great FUI FUI. Eels pack will steam roll the smallish Tigers and the likes of Tahu and Grothe will add the points. NO Marshall and NO Hodgson = loss for Tigers.

Might be one stay away from, from a punting point of view .. just has that feel about it that anything could happen .. Tigers could nick a win, Eels could scrape home, or the dam wall might bust and the hosts could run away with it .. too many if's buts and maybe's ..

Agreeed Flam, Im just throwing a bit of coin on Eels because theyre my team. Cant wait to see Fui's return.

on the head to head or with a margin? 1-12 does look the play if you were going to make one .. most likely scenario points to the Eels grafting out a win .. think a bit of wet weather is the forcast tonight too.

Thanks for the info. After all the Eels troubles I think they will win 13+ tonight. But they are the worst attacking team in the comp so theres a high chance it could be a low scoring game, especially if the weathers bad.

Agree 100% Andrew,Didnt know FUI FUI was back but he will definetely liftem through the middle!!!Im with ya on the Eels -7.5pts 2nite aswell,i think the Books made this line to get the Tigers backers rooted imo!!Eels should be switched on n when they are can be a headache,i actually see Tahu running amok n Grothe backing up strongly!!Watch Vella n Hindmarsh to cut sick,ya i see a touch up comin aswell!!!

Adding!!!

40 units on Parramatta Eels ML 1.49/Hawthorn ML 1.43 = 2.13 over West Tigers/Carlton Blues - Both teams should win 2nite imo and comfortably aswell!!!

Eels did it pretty easily in the end. A bit nervous when Tigers scored 2 trys in 1 minute though.

Good stuff Andrew and Sports Freak .. That was a pretty brave punt on the Eels but they obviously played exactly as you expected them to. Good start to the weekend!

As for today .. the Cowboys should roll the Sharks, but I just have a sneaking inkling of a feeling something could go amiss.. Coming off a tough game last sunday, could there be a let-down factor? Skipper Travis Norton is also out.

Does anyone have a definite answer on Andrew Johns? Is he out or is he playing?? He was spotted in the crowd at Telstra Dome last night, so is in Melbourne, but the talk asll week has been about his injury and subsequent absence for at least a fortnight.??
if he's out, the $1.55 about the Storm is worth sucking up with a straw IMO.

As for that other game across the ditch, well, is anyone brave enough to even consider a punt on anything to do with that one??

Andrew Johns is down in Melbourne using Collingwoods state of the art Hyperbaric room to work on his injury. He will not be playing.

As for the game across the ditch I think the Warriors are specials. Souths are a team that follow a good effort ie last weeks 8 point loss to the Bulldogs with a bad effort. Generally one of their good efforts rarely come up with a win and there bad efforts lead
to 30 - 50 point losses

Agree Flamb,Cowboys should roll the Sharks but this game may not look as easy since the things you have pointed out,also Sharks comin of a hiding!!!This seems like the perfect scenario to get on the Sharks but after last weeks effort of both sides you gotta have guts to go against the Cowboys n back the stinkin Sharks!!!JT might cause havoc again!!!
I believe Kones was never gonna play this week,just more mind tricks from Hagan!!Stroms played to well to give this one up but in sayin soo the Knights are out there to prove critics wrong!!!

Manly Sea Eagles could be the Dog this weekend,Bulldogs didnt look to sharp against Rabbitohs while i feel Manly are hitting their straps!!!!

Nqld 1.39/Storms 1.50!!!
Warriors 1.43!!!
Manly 2.20!!!

Thanks for the info on Johns Gucci .. With him out, should be all over Melbourne like a rash against the rudderless Knights. First game back at the 'grave yard' should be a 'W' for the Storm.

BTW, few anxious moments in last night's unders play on the Reds v Stormers ey? A win's a win in the end though.

Manly demand to be backed at $2.15. They've got the type of game to really worry the Bulldogs. Look to have a few more options in attack, especially in the halves. If their forwards can hold their own, the Sea Eagles will cause the Dogs a lot of headaches. I've tipped em but I won't put any cash on them - at the end of the day if could go either way.

Gee a Cowboys - Storm double looks very tempting at $2.06 ..

I just can't understand why the $1.55 about the Storm hasn't shortened due to money coming for the hosts..? For mine, melbourne are specials to beat the Knight now Joey's out. I'd expect them to shorten over the course of the day.

Agree with ya mate,just that everybody is weary about if the Knights less Jones want to prove some critics wrong n win a game without him,although this one will be tough the way the Storm is going along!!!!How do you know money is comin in for the Storms????

Couple of other snippets of info I have heard about the Storm v Knights game. Apparently there is fair chance Milton Thaiday is out and will be replaced by David Seage. Also for the Storm Chris Walker is out with Geyer going to the Wing and Crocker to 5/8.

Mr Flamboyant

Where is the creativity in attack going to come from for either side if that's the case..???

Mr Flamboyant
04-22-2006, 10:26 AM
Damn, shoulda taken the Storm - Cowboys double as I suggested to everyone else!!

Just a bit of chump change on a few 'odds on' teams in a multi .. Lions X Storm X Cowboys X Newcastle (Eng Soccer) X Bolton (Eng Soccer) @ $7.03 ..

Everyone scared off the NRL today..? Doesn't surprise cos it's tough to get a strong feel for anything in particular.

Tough to pick a winner with any great confidence .. Plenty like the Sea Eagles with 3.5 start, they've shortened from $1.85 to $1.80, but that strikes me as the sort of game where anything could happen.

Thinking of having a bit 'each way' on the Broncos 1-12 and the Panthers 1-12 ($3.20 & $3.75 respectively) .. Should be a close one.

Just a bit of team news from the Bulldogs v Sea Eagles game.

Matt Utai has been passed fit to play for the Doggies and will replace Trent Cutler on the wing. Manly will be missing Brett Stewart for the game, Chris Hicks is moving to fullback and Paul Stephenson comes into play on the wing.

Cheers,

Sparks

Broncos are 'unders' specialists .. Their games rarely get out of hand in a scoring sense because they're methodical with the ball and generally defend pretty well. If the lines keep getting set in the mid to high 40's for their matches, keep playing them.

I know it's Anzac Day, but I'm still leaning on a St George X Collingwood double tomorrow .. Something keeps telling me not to back the Dragons though. Although with Minichiello now added to the Roosters' injured list, they're really up against it.

An inform Collingwood against a Lloyd-less Essendon also demands to be played.

Absolutely Flam,Those 2 teams look like absolute certainties 2morro!!Can see both camps winning comfortably!!!No Minni for Roosters is a major blow and cannot see them recover from it,while Dragons are starting to hit full strength especially with Head getting more game turn to feed the troops!!!

The loss of Minichiello is a big blow but it will still be close.

Gucci .. I can't really get a read on this game as far as an unders/overs play is concerned. Traditionally these games are fairly dour and low scoring, and I honestly can't see where the Roosters are going to get their points this afternoon.

Still leaning towards simplicity though .. ie Dragons - Collingwood double ..

Do it champ ,no need to hesitate and talk ur self out of it!!It is what you see!!!Both camps will do the job 2day even cover the line if the weather is right,but BG mentioned a downpour in Sydney while there gonna be an absolute Massive cyclone comin my way!!!!!!

Adding!!!

40 units on Collingwood 1.42/ St George 1.30 @ 1.84 over Essendon/Roosters- Pies are red hot and Bombers this time are undermanned for awhile against the Dons,see Pies winning this by 5+ goals imo!!!Dragons like playin the Roosters since they got the wood over them lately and are better team on paper,the most important part is the playmakers where Dragons have it all over the red legs,Watch on for Trent to hav a huge game,he is due if not Head ( Mr consistency n brain) will do the job!!!
