Penrith Panthers vs Melbourne Storm

March 25 – Panthers Stadium – Sydney – 8.05pm

The Storm make a second successive journey to the suburbs on Western Sydney this week as the Panthers host Melbourne with a chance to enact revenge for their 2020 Grand Final loss.
We feel that is precisely what Penrith will do. The Panthers are playing attacking footy and are yet to concede a point against them in 2021.

Bet on the Panthers to Win – $1.90

St George Illawarra-Dragons vs Manly Sea Eagles

March 26 – WIN Stadium – Wollongong – 6.00pm

The early Friday night match is one for struggling teams – the Dragons and the Sea Eagles. Manly did extend the Rabbitohs last week, while the Dragons won against an underwhelming Cowboys side.

This match has the feel of both sides being Wooden Spooners in the making. Take the Dragons on the back of their fanatic home crowd support in Wollongong.

Bet on the Dragons to Win – $1.90

South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Sydney Roosters

March 26 – Stadium Australia – Sydney – 8.05pm

In any other week than a Grand Final Replay week, a match between the Rabbits and Roosters would be match of the round. This one is expected to be a cracker. The Roosters will be looking to avenge their 60-8 thrashing by South Sydney the last time that the two teams met running into the finals in 2020.
The Roosters appear to be in ominous form, while the much-vaunted Rabbits are yet to produce their best in 2021. Just like last year, South Sydney are taking their time to warm into the season, while the Roosters have started strongly.

Bet on the Roosters to Win – $1.70

Canberra Raiders vs New Zealand Warriors

March 27 – GIO Stadium – Canberra – 3.00pm

An intriguing match-up is set for the nation’s capital with two of the biggest and toughest sets of forwards in the NRL going head-to-head. The Warriors lost a tough match to Newcastle last week, while the Raiders are always a tough proposition to beat at home.

SportsBetting line betting markets for the Raiders/Warriors match-up appear an excellent punting option this week, with the Warriors at good bet at a +10.5-point line @$1.83 and the Raiders [email protected]$1.95.

Bet on the Raiders to Win – $1.33

Brisbane Broncos vs Canterbury Bulldogs

March 27 – Suncorp Stadium – Brisbane – 5.30pm

A difficult assignment for the Bulldogs this week who head to Brisbane to take on a Broncos rejuvenated by Kevvie Walters’ new coaching style, although still looking for their first win under the coach.
It should come this week, with the Broncos set to get some injured stars back and the Bulldogs are scratching their heads after being held pointless last week against the Panthers.

Bet on the Broncos to Win – $1.70

Parramatta Eels vs Cronulla Sharks

March 27 – Bankwest Stadium – Sydney – 7.35pm

2021 is already feeling like Groundhog Day for the Sharks. Good enough to beat the bottom 8 but struggling the compete with the 7 sides directly above them.
Expect more of the same this week as the Eels are expected to pick apart Cronulla’s softness up the centre of the park.

Bet on the Eels to Win – $1.39

Newcastle Knights vs Wests Tigers

March 28 – McDonald Jones Stadium – 4.05pm

Wests Tigers get another test to prove themselves against a quality team. The Knights are 2-0 to start the season and appear to be a much tougher unit in 2021, particularly in the forwards led by new recruit who are playing hard in defence and attack in 2021.

However, defeating the Wests Tigers is never an easy task in Campbelltown. Can the promise that Wests Tigers have promised in times in 2021, finally be converted into their first win of the season? We like the Knights to win an a close one.

Bet on the Knights to Win – $1.35

North Queensland Cowboys vs Gold Coast Titans

March 28 – Queensland Country Bank Stadium – Townsville– 6.15pm

Two teams heading in different directions – the Cowboys simply hoping to compete, while the Titans have Top 8 aspirations – do battle in an oddly-timed Sunday evening twilight clash in Townsville.
If all goes to script in Townsville, the visiting Gold Coast team should be able to atone for last year’s 36-6 drubbing in last year’s corresponding match. Stranger things have happened in footy than a Cowboys upset. Be on alert to possibly cash out.

Bet on the Titans to Win – $1.50
