NRL Round 9 Tips

Thursday 2/5/24

7:50pm South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Penrith Panthers @ Accor Stadium

The Rabbitohs are officially the worst team in the NRL, and we didn’t think we would be saying that during pre-season talks.

They need to fire up this week, but they play the Panthers, who are going about their business in fine style.

Bookmakers have 14.5 points between them, which is a big line, so we’re prepared to give South Sydney one last chance, but they’re on thin ice.

Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs +14.5 @ $1.90

Friday 3/5/24

6:00pm Manly Sea Eagles vs Canberra Raiders @ 4 Pines Park

The Raiders were thrashed 40-0 by the Sharks on Sunday, which makes them tough to back this week.

Therefore, we’re taking the Sea Eagles at home, who could be one of the bets of the week at the –8.5 line.

Manly is good enough to pile on the points against a hurting Raiders outfit, who looked to give up way too easily last week, and we have predicted Ricky Stuart’s departure for many years.

Betting tip: Manly Sea Eagles –8.5 @ $1.90

8:00pm Brisbane Broncos vs Sydney Roosters @ Suncorp Stadium

Heavyweights collide when the Broncos and Roosters meet on Friday night, and we’re picking the Broncos to prevail.

They come off an easy win over the Wests Tigers, and although Sydney destroyed the Dragons, we believe the Broncos have more upside.

Getting a –5.5 line is too good to pass up for the home side.

Betting tip: Brisbane Broncos –5.5 @ $1.90

Saturday 4/5/24

3:00pm Canterbury Bulldogs vs Wests Tigers @ Accor Stadium

The Bulldogs find themselves inside the top eight, which didn’t seem likely a few weeks ago.

Looking to take advantage of playing easier teams, they should be well-favoured to beat the Tigers on Saturday, so the –7.5 line appeals.

Despite the Tigers starting well, they are falling back to earth as expected. We predict their struggles to continue for the rest of the year.

Betting tip: Canterbury Bulldogs –7.5 @ $1.90

5:30pm Gold Coast Titans vs Melbourne Storm @ Cbus Super Stadium

The Melbourne Storm i starting to fire up in a big way, and the Titans could be in for a wakeup call.

Gold Coast scored its first win of the year against the Warriors last week, but facing a rampaging Storm outfit is a different kettle of fish.

The line is –13.5, and we’re not surprised it’s so one sided. Take the better team to score a comfortable victory.

Betting tip: Melbourne Storm –13.5 @ $1.90

7:35pm North Queensland Cowboys vs Dolphins @ Country Bank Stadium

The Queensland teams come off Round 8 losses, but the Cowboys were the more impressive team.

They lost 26-20 to the Panthers, which was expected, but they did well to cover the +9.5 spread, so punters were happy.

The Dolphins lost to the Knights, which wasn’t expected, so we’re going with the Cowboys to beat their little brothers.

Betting tip: North Queensland Cowboys –7.5 @ $1.90

Sunday 5/5/24

2:00pm Newcastle Knights vs New Zealand Warriors @ McDonald Jones Stadium

It’s always an exciting contest between the Knights and Warriors, but we’re surprised by the odds.

Newcastle scored a good win over the Dolphins last week, and the Warriors lost poorly to the Titans despite having a 12-0 lead.

It’s not good enough from the Warriors, so we’re taking the $2.26 odds for the Knights to win in front of their home fans.

Betting tip: Newcastle Knights @ $2.26

4:05pm Cronulla Sharks vs St George Dragons @ PointsBet Stadium

The Sharks lead the way after dismantling the Raiders last week, and the inconsistent Dragons don’t stand much of a chance.

St George can be great one week and terrible the next. Unfortunately, it has been terrible on one too many occasions.

Professionalism is with the Sharks, who should have enough in the tank to put up a big number in consecutive weeks.

Betting tip: Cronulla Sharks –13.5 @ $1.90
