NRL Round 13 Tips

Thursday 25/5/23

7:50pm Dolphins vs St George Dragons @ Kayo Stadium

The Dolphins haven’t been the most consistent team in recent weeks, and they could be down a few players, but bookmakers are confident of a winning result.

The Dragons have shown improvement, but they too are affected by Origin. Therefore, with the Dolphins playing at home, we’re happy to back them to win.

Betting tip: Dolphins @ $1.55

Dolphins by 2


Dolphins vs Dragons – betr Same Game Multi

We’ve teamed up with betr to provide the GoBet Multi for the first game of every round of the 2023 NRL season.

We’re taking the Dolphins to win the game at $1.55, but we’re not prepared to take the –4.5. It should be a close contest, so take the Dolphins to win and the under in the total match points. We can’t see it being an overly high-scoring contest to open the week, but one player who could cross the line is Kodi Nikorima. The 29-year-old who lines up at full back this week is always a threat around the try line, and we like his chances to cross.

Friday 26/5/23

8:00pm Parramatta Eels vs North Queensland Cowboys @ CommBank Stadium

We’re not sure what happened with the Cowboys last week but they were shocking in defeat to the Wests Tigers.

It’s hard to fathom a team with such talent could be so poor, but looking to pounce on them are the Eels, who are the firm favourites.

The current line is –10.5, which seems high, but given the low confidence levels of the Cowboys and missing players, they should get thumped again.

Betting tip: Parrmatta Eels –10.5 @ $1.90

Saturday 27/5/23

5:30pm New Zealand Warriors vs Brisbane Broncos @ McLean Park

The Warriors won’t get a better chance to score two premiership points with the Broncos missing a stack of Origin players.

They have been playing good rugby league, so they would have had a chance based on their merits anyway, but they should be too good.

Playing in Napier isn’t as ideal as in Auckland, but we’re confident that the home side will win and cover the generous –2.5 spread.

Betting tip: New Zealand Warriors –2.5 @ $1.90

7:35pm South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Canberra Raiders @ Accor Stadium

Having Origin players missing helps bridge the gap between the Rabbitohs and Raiders, and the bookmakers can’t split them.

The Raiders were back to their terrible ways on Sunday when getting hammered by the Sea Eagles in a one-sided affair.

It was tough to watch, so despite missing players, the Rabbitohs should be too strong. They are the better team, and they’re well coached, which can make the difference.

$1.90 for a team like the Rabbitohs is worth taking.

Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs @ $1.90

Sunday 28/5/23

4:05pm Newcastle Knights vs Manly Sea Eagles @ McDonald Jones Stadium

The Sea Eagles were emphatic winners last Sunday against the Raiders, and they looked more like the team tipped to make the top four.

They could be affected by Origin, especially if Tommy Turbo wriggles his way into the team, which could make beating the Knights tough.

That is reflected in betting markets with the Knights at $1.55, so we’re taking the home side to take advantage of the situation.

Betting tip: Newcastle Knights –5.5 @ $1.90
