Bets For This Weekend’s National Rugby League Games
The beginning of the National Rugby League (NRL) has given us some great games and insights into how the season might end up. Even though it is still fairly early into the season, there might be a lot more room for improvement.
The current standings are already quite tight and every rugby game from here on out will matter. We are still yet to see the standings continuously change many times and the hype is about to get real!
Looking ahead to this weekend, there are plenty of good National Rugby League games and bets to watch out for. The lines prove to have decent value for some of these games to choose from.
Here is my selection of the best rugby games and bets to make for this weekend!
The Cowboys vs Titans
The Gold Coast Titans will go into this game as the underdogs against the North Queensland Cowboys. The Titans are listed at +6.5 in this matchup. What’s interesting about this line is that the Cowboys have been struggling so far this season and currently sit at 16th place with only one win.
The Titans have started their National Rugby League campaign on a fairly good note. Winning 2 of 3 games so far, and coming off a narrow win against a fairly decent Melbourne Storm team.
This rugby matchup could see the Titans cover the spread as they have looked fairly decent so far and should keep this game close against the Cowboys.
Sea Eagles vs Rabbitohs
The Sea Eagles have been playing exceptionally well in the first few starts of the season. Having won 2 of their 2 matches already, this team has shown promise moving forward for the season.
This should be the matchup of the weekend. Both teams are exceptionally strong and are listed as top 7 favorites to win it all. Even though the Rabbitohs have struggled early, they should look to bounce back.
The Manly Sea Eagles are underdogs going into this game at +3.5 against the South Sydney Rabbitohs. This spread seems favorable for the underdog side to cover. The Sea Eagles have been a high scoring team so far vs the Rabbitohs who seem to struggle to score high.
Warriors vs Bulldogs
Another exciting game this weekend that should see both teams matchup evenly against one another. The New Zealand Warriors are currently 4th in the standings and look to climb a step higher over a weaker Bulldogs side.
The Warriors enter this match as a slight favorite, however, this side has proven to be very efficient to defend and keep the opposition at a low score.
The Bulldogs have come off as a hot and cold team in the games they play. They lack depth in this matchup and might show signs of weakness against a strong Warriors side.
For this reason taking the spread or money line on the Warriors to close this game out might prove to be a decent wager.
