NRL 2019 – Round 21 – Betting tips, Odds and Predictions

NRL 2019 Round 21
NRL Season 2019 Round 21

North Queensland Cowboys vs Brisbane Broncos – August 8

Tip – Always a great battle in the Queensland derby game, the Broncos and Cowboys both look to cement their ladder positions.

It feels like it could be another classic in the making with the Townsville team fancying themselves to produce the upset and put a major dent in Brisbane’s finals tilt.

BET ON THE COWBOYS WITH BETSTAR

New Zealand Warriors vs Manly Sea Eagles – August 9

Tip – In what is a really tough match to pick, it may well be determined by which Warriors team turns up, the world beaters on some days on the most disappointing team in the NRL on others.

For their part, Manly are in superb touch and their recent big wins should give them the confidence to win in Auckland.

BET ON MANLY WITH BETSTAR

Penrith Panthers vs Cronulla Sharks – August 9

Tip – An excellent match is predicted for the TV Friday night footy game, the entertaining Panthers and Sharks putting their skills on show and both looking forward to hopefully playing finals.

Penrith have the league’s best record over the second half of the season and should be able to repel the challenge of the Sharks.

BET ON THE PANTHERS WITH BETSTAR

St George-Illawarra Dragons vs Gold Coast Titans – August 10

Tip – With neither team in great form, it makes it all the more challenging to pick a winner in Kogarah.

Look for the Dragons to impress their home crowd with a victory as the fans think about what could have been for St George in season 2019.

BET ON THE DRAGONS WITH BETSTAR

Parramatta Eels vs Newcastle Knights - August 10

Tip – Another opportunity arises for the Eels to show their fans how much they love playing at their new home ground.

Their victims this time around will be the Newcastle Knights who won’t be a pushover but may well fall just short of an upset win in Western Sydney.

BET ON THE EELS WITH BETSTAR

Canterbury Bulldogs vs Wests Tigers – August 10

Tip – If the Bulldogs struggle to score points continues here, expect Wests Tigers to run away with a good win.

Despite controlling possession and making the least number of mistakes in the NRL, the Bulldogs can’t score tries, and the Wests Tigers can.

BET ON WESTS TIGERS WITH BETSTAR

Canberra Raiders vs Sydney Roosters - August 11

Tip – The Raiders host the Premiers in the nation’s capital, a venue where visitors regularly struggle.

Coach Ricky Stuart will have his Raiders troops primed for this one and we’re predicting the Raiders and their parochial home crowd will send the Roosters back to Sydney with a loss.

BET ON THE RAIDERS WITH BETSTAR

South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Melbourne Storm - August 11

Tip – Bookies are struggling to separate the Top 2 teams in their Central Coast match-up.

Souths haven’t been playing well yet winning, while the Storm are churning out high quality Rugby League like clockwork. It is a tough match to predict but we’ll take Souths to sneak home with a narrow win.
