Manly Sea Eagles vs Sydney Roosters (Semi Final 1)

September 17 – BB Print Stadium – Mackay – 7.50pm

Betting on the NRL doesn’t get more interesting than this match-up featuring two of the world’s best players, the Roosters’ skipper James Tedesco up against Manly’s try-scoring machine, Tommy ‘Turbo’ Trbojevic. Both men were kept reasonably quiet by the Titans and Storm respectively last week and whoever emerges with the best performance might well determine the match.

The Roosters have overperformed this season, somehow winning their way through to this playoff despite missing a galaxy of the best players and biggest star play makers. On the other side of the coin, Manly seemed to rarely get out of second gear against the Storm last week. We believe that the Sea Eagles have more improvement left in their game, and may well end the Roosters season and progress through to the Preliminary Final.

Penrith Panthers vs Parramatta Eels (Semi Final 2)

September 18 – BB Print Stadium – Mackay – 7.50pm

The top bookmakers have the Panthers as out-and-out favourites to win their way through to a Preliminary Final against the Storm, but they’ll need to do it in the hard way. Key players and talisman of their campaign in 2021, Liam Martin and Issah Yeo, both face a nervous wait to beat an appointment with the judiciary, facing possible suspension trouble for respective crusher tackles.
For their part, the Parramatta Eels are good value of triggering an upset, with BoomBet odds of +11.5 points @ $1.91 available for Parramatta to win a surprise way through to face the Storm. However, it will largely depend on which Eels team turns up on the day. Parramatta are consistently inconsistent, while Penrith have been solid all season long and should win, but it will be close.

Bet on the Panthers to Win – $1.28
