NRL Round 23 Tips

Thursday 3/8/23

7:50pm Sydney Roosters vs Manly Sea Eagles @ SCG

The season is all but over for the Roosters, who are surprise favourites against the Sea Eagles this week.

Given their respective positions on the NRL ladder, we expect Manly to win, especially coming off a Round 22 victory.

Take the $2.35 available, which could shorten throughout the week.

Betting tip: Sea Eagles @ $2.35

Roosters vs Sea Eagles – 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 don’t expect much to separate the Roosters and Sea Eagles, in what could become a defensive struggle. Therefore, include the under total match points and the Sea Eagles +4.5 in your same game multi. We’re happy to take the points as some insurance, and to boost payouts, take Jason Saab to score a try. The Sea Eagles flyer could get on the outside of the defence and score.

Friday 4/8/23

6:00pm Gold Coast Titans vs New Zealand Warriors @ Cbus Super Stadium

The Titans scored a great upset win over the Cowboys last week, and they’ll need to produce a similar effort to beat the Warriors.

New Zealand is inside the top three teams in the competition after a series of quality performances, and coming off the bye makes them dangerous.

They should be too much for the Titans to handle.

Betting tip: Warriors @ $1.47

8:00pm Penrith Panthers vs Melbourne Storm @ BlueBet Stadium

The marquee game of the week sees the flying Panthers host the Storm, in could be the game of the year.

There doesn’t seem to be any slowing down for the Panthers, but the Storm smashed the Eels last week, and they usually improve as the playoffs approach.

Bookmakers have 9.5 points difference, which is too good to pass up for the Storm.

Betting tip: Storm +8.5 @ $1.90

Saturday 5/8/23

3:00pm North Queensland Cowboys vs Brisbane Broncos @ Country Bank Stadium

The winning run of the Cowboys came to a screeching halt on Sunday when losing to the Titans.

It was disappointing to see, and now they need to beat the Broncos, who won’t just lie down and let the baby brothers get the job done.

The market is trending in favour of the Cowboys, which is interesting, but it pays to follow betting moves. Therefore, we’re taking the Cowboys to bounce back.

Betting tip: Cowboys @ $2.10

5:30pm Dolphins vs Newcastle Knights @ Optus Stadium

The Dolphins were disappointing when losing to the Bulldogs last week. It was a poor-quality game, and at times they looked disinterested.

They need to be much better to hold off the Knights, who have stormed into playoff contention with a series of top performances.

We can’t see the Knights losing based on their current form, so they should score a comfortable victory.

Betting tip: Knights –9.5 @ $1.90

7:35pm South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Cronulla Sharks @ Optus Stadium

The Sharks look like a fish out of the water at the moment, which is being reflected in betting markets.

They looked excellent a few weeks ago, but after some disappointing losses, the Rabbitohs could pile on the pressure.

South Sydney hasn’t looked overly impressive either, but it’s the –11.5 favourites, so expectations are big on Saturday.

Betting tip: Rabbitohs –11.5 @ $1.90

Sunday 6/8/23

2:00pm Parramatta Eels vs St George Dragons @ CommBank Stadium

The Eels were rampaged by the Storm last week and there were some concerning signs with the defence.

The likes of Clint Gutherson didn’t try hard enough, and considering they’re on the outside looking in, you would expect the opposite.

Bookmakers have 12.5 points between, and although the Dragons are terrible, the Eels aren’t good enough to win by 13 or more.

Betting tip: Dragons +12.5 @ $1.90

Eels by 8

4:05pm Canberra Raiders vs Wests Tigers @ GIO Stadium

The Raiders didn’t fire a shot last week, but now they get an opportunity to produce the goods against the worst team in the competition.

The Tigers just aren’t good enough to compete in the NRL, which is why bookmakers have the line at 13.5, despite the Raiders struggles.

We see the scoreline going one way and one way only.

Betting tip: Raiders –12.5 @ $1.90
