NRL 2019 – Round 20 – Betting tips, Odds and Predictions

NRL 2019 Round 20
NRL Season 2019 Round 20

Wests Tigers vs North Queensland Cowboys – August 1

Tip – West Tigers are always a tough unit to defeat at their Balmain spiritual heartland at Leichardt Oval, but the Cowboys playing for Top 8 survival won’t be an easy opponent.

This match has all the feel of a classic in the making with West Tigers perhaps only marginally our tip on the back of the home ground advantage only.

New Zealand Warriors vs Canberra Raiders – August 2

Tip – Unfortunately, it seems the Warriors are a one-man team, with the game’s best player, Roger Tuivasa-Scheck, keeping the Warriors alive in the last few weeks.

However, the visiting Canberra Raiders are a class side and even the great RTS cannot beat this quality Raiders team all by himself.

BET ON THE RAIDERS WITH BETSTAR

Brisbane Broncos vs Melbourne Storm - August 2

Tip – The Storm have a phenomenal record in Brisbane, so what makes this match any different?

Brisbane really need to win and win well to have any chance of a Top 8 finish, while the Storm are well clear at the top of the table. Great odds are available on a Broncos upset in Brisbane.

BET ON THE BRONCOS WITH BETSTAR

Manly Sea Eagles vs Newcastle Knights - August 3

Tip – 2 months ago, the Knights were being heralded as possible upset Premiers when they dismantled the Roosters in Newcastle. Reality has bitten. It should be a great game at Brookvale and we’re predicting that Manly will continue their march to the finals with a close win.

BET ON MANLY WITH BETSTAR

Canterbury Bulldogs vs Penrith Panthers – August 3

Tip – The time of the season has come for the cream to rise to the top. Unfortunately, the Bulldogs aren’t part of the cream of the crop in 2019.

Watch for the Panthers to carry on with their winning ways and get ever closer to securing a finals spot that appeared unlikely 2 months ago.

BET ON THE PANTHERS WITH BETSTAR

Cronulla Sharks vs South Sydney Rabbitohs - August 3

Tip – The bookies love South Sydney, and have them short-priced favourites again this week at Cronulla.

We going to take advantage of the bookies generosity and predict that the Sharks will win at home at much longer odds than they should be.

BET ON THE SHARKS WITH BETSTAR

Sydney Roosters vs Gold Coast Titans – August 4

Tip – This game has the feel of a total mismatch, with the defending Premiers looking to pile a mountain of points on the hapless Titans to consolidate their for-and-against points record.

That’s precisely how it should play out, with the Gold Coast officials continuing to seriously consider relocating the team to Brisbane to cure their financial ills.

BET ON THE ROOSTERS WITH BETSTAR

St George-Illawarra Dragons vs Parramatta Eels - August 4

Tip – St George-Illawarra promised so much early in this season and last, but they seem to continually underperform which the season reaches its pointy end.

The Eels, on the other hand, have played some great footy throughout 2019 and we’re predicting them to have the better in this one and beat the Dragons at Kogarah.
