I doudt that they would be dogs against Manly who are away. I'm fully confident in a Tigers high scoring win. The over looks very appealing as Tigers defence and Seagles defence can leak tries.

Not as badly as they need 13 players on the field for the entire game this weekend ...

See value in the Sharks at $2.25 against the Gold Coast ... Roosters +12.5 v Cowboys also stands out .. Canberra +12.5 at home :eek: must surely be an all time record points start for a Raiders side at home ... Since 1987 anyway ..

With TAB, you can bet on how many points each team will score.

The 0-10 option for the Raiders looks very appealing.

= crapshoot ... if you're serious about betting that way you're better off spreading your stake across two points brackets .. ie half a unit 0-10, the other half 10-20 ... given that each pays $3.20+ you'll profit as long as it stays within that 20 point range ...

The Raiders were lucky to score a try against Manly. Why would they have any better chance to cover +12.5 over the Storm. Manly aren't better than the Storm and really shouldn't have trouble breaking there woeful defence. Although the Raiders may look to bounce back and play better defence and try to spoil Melbourne. I can't see much in the Raiders +12.5. Keeping in mind, just because there at home they will play better. Not over night/week will they play better.

Incredible odds on the Rabittohs @ 6.00+:eek:
I don't think the Eels are worth a price of a 1.20 to beat a team thats just beaten the Roosters for the 2nd time in 7 games (correct me on that stat).

Huh the Els are slight dogs nearly everywhere :confused:

Titans injury update .. Scott Prince had an MRI on his right ankle today but the results weren't known this afternoon and he's still touch and go for monday night against the Sharks ... Preston Campbell trained at halfback and will slot in there if Prince is out .. Matt Peterson moves onto the wing to replace Chris Walker ...

That loss is not as big as one thoughts,he hasnt been on the field too much over the last couple of yrs so the Dogs are use to playing without him although this time there's no Asotasi for backup but Mason/Meley/Ryan should get the job done over another Big Ferious Forward back minus the trouble making Preston who has caused Dogs some problems in previous times,Wesser also seems to go well too against the Dogs of late!!

Can someone please tell me why you would be placing bets with the Panthers. They were god awful against the Sharks. They couldn't get a single try with players that they have in Gower, Wesser, Rooney etc. Why would the Panthers have any chance against a Bulldogs team that suffered a pretty ridiculous defeat last week and if i remember, the Bulldogs do well against the Panthers.

Cause they are @ Home and its not wet. there's no sunny bill and matthew elliot this week said he feels the side have had a massive turn around in attitude

This seriously is a tough round to pick. This is what i went with.

Dragons v Knights

Warriors v Broncos
Souths v Eels (Eels have a big chance there, still 50/50 on that.
Titans v Sharks

Trying to adjust to a new coaches playing style doesn't always become second nature. The level they are at doesn't look like first class quality and just like the Roosters, there trying a new style of play that hasn't fully suited the team.

True but I feel they are value as the dogs were totally unimpressive too me last week and I feel they should be only slight faves imho tonight. If you take a look through both sides I feel their is not much between them at all.

Agree tough games to call 2nite,leaning on the Dogs to win but the Forward pack of Penrith is always a worry,i like the Dogs more due to the Exclusion of Preston Campbell who could been the difference,him and Gower combined really give the go forward of Penrith uin the past!!Dragons at home to Knights,i remember this game quite clearly when Joey Johns ran an absolute muck to make the Dragons look like School boy rugby,could this be in the back of the minds of St George,who knows we shall find out!!

Gotta Love the NT,lol!!Lets get back to business for 2day games and winners!!Dragons still have mental issues on putting teams away,while i cant wait for Shifty Sherwin to get the boys into gear!!

Sea Eagles over Tigers - I dont believe Orford will be out n feel he will be the match winner at the end of the day!!

Storms by how much,should cover the line and win by 3-4 tries atleast!!

Cowboys over Roosters - Remember this game last yr when the Roosters pulled of an upset of a pretty decent Cowboys outfit but this time the Roosters are running scared,seems to have too much old legs or something,Cowboys in a canter but by how much,you would think quite abit!!

sports freak
03-24-2007, 02:46 AM
Tigers have been hammered,Orford must be out or word has gonna around!!Maybe more value on the Unders again for Jimbo!!!

Cowboys -12.5pts over Roosters - This could be in trouble by HT!!

I fell into that trap last week thinking the conditions would be a leveller - unfortunately there is no leveller to compensate for a lack of depth and talent. The Storm could play in snow and still put up a score on these mugs.

The only play I'm thinking about it the Roosters +12.5 believe it or not against the Cowboys. Mitchell Pearce will provide so much more in attack for the Roosters than Lewis did last week, I've seen this kid play close up and he can definitely play.

I've only read positive things about him as well subsequent to the junior Kangas tour of Great Britain over Christmas last year.

I'm steering well clear of this. If we play 1 marker we are likely to be carved up. If we play 2 markers we are a chance of making a game of it. Too many question marks for me.

Seriously, that win from Penrith should give them tremendous confidents in the camp and seriously the dogs look like a wreck.

The Dragons really should have taken that game against the Knights. As Guss Gould said all night, the pretty Dragons let the Knights have the game as the Dragons couldn't put the game away. They failed to find touch on a penalty and also turned the ball over way to much. What an absolute disgrace. I was speechless with the effort by the Dragons. Sack Brown, he sucks big time.

Early bird catches the worm. Love this play and a big one it is.

Prince is likely to play for the Titans but his ankle is pretty suspect .. he has torn some of the smaller ligaments and playing him will be a risk imo this early in the season ... If he's out Preston Campbell will move to halfback and Smith Saeo to fullback ...
