NRL TIPS – Round 5

NRL TIPS – Round 5

We had last week off the NRL and what a blessing that may have been. The Eels beat the Rabbits Friday night? did I hear that correctly. Anyway, let’s get back into it again for Round 5. Here are some solid plays for Friday to Sunday.

Remember to grab these on Bet365, and check out their awesome range of alternative lines and markets for just about everything you could think of.


Canterbury Bulldogs vs South Sydney Rabbitohs

Anyone got a lucky coin? because that’s what you will need to pick the winner here. Not even the home ground advantage aspect can give us anything. One thing that seems certain is that this will be a quality contest and the winner is likely to be by just a few points. I am slightly leaning towards the bunnies, so let’s have some fun with it. If it’s a draw then so bet it.

TIP: Bulldogs 1-12 ($3.30) | STAKE: 1 unit

TIP: Rabbitohs 1-12 ($3.00) | STAKE: 2 unit


Gold Coast Titans vs Brisbane Broncos

The Titans got a last gasp win last week, but who against? they are still in struggle street. The Broncos may have lost two players to injury but on closer inspection their replacements are kind of handy (Thaiday anyone). Bennetts’ mob are just too strong defensively and too well drilled to lose to their little brother down the highway. Having said that, they are likely to be playing in a swimming pool here on the Gold Coast, so this game will be tighter than expected.

TIP: Broncos 1-12 ($2.80) | STAKE: 2 units

TIP: Game total UNDER 34.5 ($1.90) | STAKE: 2 units


Manly Sea Eagles vs Canberra Raiders

The Eagles keep coping the hits. They have lost more players and will really struggle in the forward pack this time round. Brooky is their main positive here so I think they grind our a close win. The Raiders are just one of those teams. I want to pull the trigger but can’t type the letters, so I wont. They will however put up a big fight, but will likely fall short. Let’s play it that way.

TIP: Sea Eagles 1-12 ($3.10) | STAKE: 2 units

TIP: Half Time – Raiders +4.5  ($1.95) | STAKE: 2 units

TIP: HT/FT – Raiders/Sea Eagles ($6.50) | STAKE: 0.5 units


Newcastle Knights vs St. George Dragons

This game will have plenty of passion floating about. Forget ladder positions, the Dragons have the second best defence in the NRL. This will be hard fought and low scoring, but the Knights might just win this at home in the inaugural Alex McKinnon Cup.

TIP: Game total UNDER 34.5 ($1.90) | STAKE: 2 units


Sydney Roosters vs Cronulla Sharks

This game is going to be a flogging. The Roosters are bigger, faster, more talented and the list goes on. Sorry Sharks fans but this year (and especially this week), is one to forget.

TIP: Roosters -14 ($1.90) | STAKE: 2 units

TIP: Roosters OVER 4.5 tries ($1.83) | STAKE: 2 units
