Panthers v Raiders – CUA Stadium 7:30pm
Team news: No late changes for either team.
Game news: Raiders have some key players out. They lost some players during the off-season but only brought in Danny Galea. Panthers have a decent squad, with quite a few ex-Raiders in their team.
Centrebet odds: Panthers – $1.39, Raiders – $3.00
Footy TAB: Raiders +7.5
Analysis: Can the Raiders be competitive away from home? If they can keep it close early on, then it may be a contest. The problem for the Raiders is Jennings can break the game open any minute with a flash of brilliance. The start is just about right and there is no clear edge.
Tip: Panthers by 6
Titans v Warriors – Skilled Park 2:00pm
Team news: No late changes to speak of.
Game news: Warriors are decimated by injury. After their woeful performances last year, it’s hard to think that they’ll get close to a full strength Titans team at home.
Centrebet odds: Titans – $1.32, Warriors – $3.35
Footy TAB: Warriors +8.5
Analysis: Playing at home the Titans should be too strong. My line for his game is 12 and this game opened at 6.5 for the Titans. Clear bet for the Gold Coast team.
Tip: Titans by 16
Bet: Normal play on Titans -10
Rabbitohs v Roosters – ANZ Stadium 3:00pm
Team news: No late changes to advise of.
Game news: The Rabbitohs say they have the best pack in the competition. The Roosters will be looking to make amends for last season.
Centrebet odds: Rabbitohs – $1.50, Roosters – $2.60
Footy TAB: Roosters +5.5
Analysis: The Rabbitohs pack should lay the foundation for Sutton and Sandow to set up a win. The Roosters will be competitive and I expect them to get better as the season goes along. It’s a derby game, and my line is around 6. Too close to call.
Tip: Rabbitohs by 6
Tigers v Sea Eagles – SFS 7:00pm
Team news: No late changes expected for either team.
Game news: The Tigers have recruited well and are close to full strength. Interesting to see how the Sea Eagles perform without Orford.
Centrebet odds: Tigers – $1.73, Sea Eagles – $2.10
Footy TAB: Sea Eagles +1.5
Analysis: The Tigers should have too many attacking options with Farah, Marshall and Moltzen. Manly will rely squarely on Jamie Lyon. My line for this game is Tigers by 4, so again, a clear bet for them.
Tip: Tigers by 4
Bet: Normal play on Tigers -2.0
