Tip – The Bulldogs have shown incredible steel and bravery over the last 6 weeks to be a very different side than the one that started 2019 so badly.
The finals-bound Eels have an imposing record at their new home stadium and their loyal fans love to come to this ground to offer them fervent support. Parramatta should win.

Tip – Rarely do the home side figure as outsiders in the odds in Townsville. The Cowboys pride will take a dent, so look for a tough performance from the Cows.
For their part, the Panthers have been in good touch and are scrapping to nail down a spot in the eight. Penrith should win – just.

Tip – Brisbane haven’t got a great record against the Top 4 sides at home at Suncorp in 2019.
South Sydney haven’t been in the best of form of late, but should have just that little bit too much class for the Broncos this week. Look for Damien Cook to shine.
BET ON THE RABBITOHS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The Sharks are beginning to get back to their best and should relish the return home to Sutherland Shire to take on the Warriors.
The Warriors are forever hot-and-cold, and our feeling is on this occasion they’ll be the latter with the Sharks’ Shaun Johnson poised for a big game against his former team.
BET ON THE SHARKS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – Wests Tigers love getting back to see and perform in front of their fans in Western Sydney and they generally play like a 10 point-per-game better side at Campbelltown.
The Newcastle Knights who won’t be a pushover for the Westerners, but we expect Michael Maguire’s men to emerge victorious in Western Sydney.
BET ON THE WESTS TIGERS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The Dragons are now only playing for pride. They are playing like a tired team that is mentally shot and face a monster struggle to defeat the reigning Premiers.
The Roosters are beginning to click at just the right time of year and we like their chances to win here on the pathway to attempting to be the first team to repeat since the 1992/1993 Broncos.
BET ON ROOSTERS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – There’s no easy way to say this – the Titans don’t have a hope to win this weekend in Melbourne.
Coach Craig Bellamy will have his troops forewarned of an unlikely upset win, and ready to test their positional play and combinations ahead of the finals.
BET ON THE STORM WITH BETSTAR
Tip – Quite easily the match-up of Round 23, the in-form Raiders and Manly should provide a bellringer of a match in the nation’s capital.
Manly have been super-tough away from home this year, however, we like Canberra’s strength in the forwards and tight defence to overcome the Sea Eagles in what could be a very close match.
