After 25 Rounds, 8 teams are left in the competition. The teams who finished top 4 have a second chance wherease the other 4 will have no option but to win to stay in the competition. Welcome to our NRL Betting Tips for Finals Week 1.
The Round kicks off Friday Night between the Sydney Roosters and South Sydney Rabbitohs. The two teams met last week in the last Round and it was the Rabbitohs who came out on top. The Rabbitohs needed the win to secure a top 4 spot wherease the Roosters were guaranteed the number 2 position. It’s a great blockbuster to start off the Round.
Saturday sees the number one team in the competition, Melbourne Storm, take on the Canberra Raiders. Many fans won’t forget Round 22 clash between these two teams. Storm were leading 18-0, a lead they’ve never lost from, and the Raiders with 2 players sent to the bin. Miraculously, out of no where, the Raiders caused one of the biggest upsets this year, winning that game 22-18. Melbourne surely haven’t forgotten that game and even more surely, won’t make the same mistake again.
Saturday Night follows with a do or die game between Manly and Cronulla Sharks. There’s no second chance for either teams so whoever loses is out. The Sharks will be full of confidence after last week’s dominant win against the West Tigers (and ultimately kicking them out of the Finals). Meanwhile, the Sea Eagles have a few injuries on the roster plus the suspension of Taupau. It will be an interesting one to watch.
Lastly, Sunday’s clash between the Parramatta Eels and Brisbane Broncos. This game can go either way with both teams showing inconsistency throughout the season. The two met 2 weeks ago and it was a blockbuster to watch with the Broncos winning 17-16. The Eels do come into this game as favourites and we can understand why, but nevertheless the Broncos can’t be written off that easily.
