NRL Round 5 Tips

Thursday 4/4/24

8:00pm Melbourne Storm vs Brisbane Broncos @ AAMI Park

It hasn’t been a good start for the Brisbane Broncos, who are the underdogs against the Storm on Thursday.

It has been a better start for the Storm, and although there is improvement to come, they should feel comfortable with their position.

The –3.5 line is likely to move throughout the week, so take the value now.

Betting tip: Melbourne Storm –3.5 @ $1.82

Friday 5/4/24

6:00pm Canterbury Bulldogs vs Sydney Roosters @ Accor Stadium

Most of the early money has come for the Roosters, and we’re not surprised by those moves.

They are the much better team compared to the Bulldogs, who are likely to be near the bottom of the NRL ladder throughout the year.

However, covering a 10.5 spread isn’t easy. The Bulldogs could lose narrowly, so take them to cover the big number.

Betting tip: Canterbury Bulldogs +10.5 @ $1.90

8:00pm Newcastle Knights vs St George Dragons @ McDonald James Stadium

The Knights didn’t show much against the Warriors, but they didn’t have many favours in the injury department.

Facing the Dragons should give them every chance to get back to winning form, and consistency for the Dragons has always been tough.

We’re backing the Knights to cover the –7.5 spread.

Betting tip: Newcastle Knights –7.5 @ $1.90

Saturday 6/4/24

3:00pm South Sydney Rabbitohs vs New Zealand Warriors @ Accor Stadium

It has been an awful start for the Rabbitohs, who sit in 16th position.

They now face the Warriors, who come off consecutive victories over the Raiders and Knights, which is solid form.

We’re not surprised by the closeness in betting markets, but we’re backing the visitors to get it done.

Betting tip: New Zealand Warriors @ $1.82

5:30pm Manly Sea Eagles vs Penrith Panthers @ 4 Pines Park

It’s tough to bet on the Sea Eagles following their most recent performance, so we’re taking the Panthers.

The defending champions are a quality team, and although playing on the road makes it harder, they should have the class edge over Manly.

Punters don’t often get a –3.5 line for the Panthers.

Betting tip: Penrith Panthers –3.5 @ $1.90

7:35pm Dolphins vs Wests Tigers @ Suncorp Stadium

The Tigers have found form under their new coach, but they could be without their half due to suspension.

That could give the Dolphins all they need to win this game, and they have made a good start to 2024 under Wayne Bennett.

There has been solid betting support for the Dolphins, and the odds could short.

Betting tip: Dolphins @ $1.66

Saturday 7/4/24

4:05pm North Queensland Cowboys vs Gold Coast Titans @ Country Bank Stadium

The Cowboys have been impressive over the last few weeks, and although not perfect, they are good enough to put up a big score.

The Titans lost their captain to a season-ending injury two weeks ago, and it’s going to be hard for them to beat teams like the Cowboys.

Covering a –15.5 spread isn’t easy, but the Cowboys have points on tap.

Betting tip: North Queensland Cowboys –15.5 @ $1.90

6:15pm Canberra Raiders vs Parramatta Eels @ GIO Stadium

The Eels blew a good chance to beat the Tigers on Monday, and that could have a flow-on effect.

We fancy the Raiders to score a win at home on Sunday, and they are the narrow favourites to score at $1.72.

Money could come for them throughout the week, so we’re happy to have them in our NRL picks.

Betting tip: Canberra Raiders @ $1.72
