Richmond Tigers vs Adelaide Crows
Richmond To Win @ $2.10
The Richmond Tigers were awful against Collingwood last weekend, but I expect them to bounce back this weekend. The Tigers have won five out of their past six games as underdogs and they are normally able to quickly bounce back from a loss. The Crows were excellent last weekend, but they could regress here and Richmond really stand out at their current quote of $2.05.
Parramatta Eels vs Canberra Raiders
Canberra Raiders To Win @ $2.55
The Parramatta Eels are clear favourites here, but they have really struggled in this scenario. The Eels have won only 3 of their past 12 games as favourites and are 0-4 as the punters elect at Pirtek Stadium in the past 12 months. In contrast, the Canberra Raiders have been a clear winning betting proposition as underdogs and they have won five of their last eight games in this position. $2.55 is big overs and I am confident they can get the job done this weekend.
Penrith Panthers vs North Queensland Cowboys
North Queensland Cowboys To Win @ $1.70
The North Queensland Cowboys were ruthless against St George Illawarra last weekend and they have won five of their last six games against the Penrith Panthers. The Cowboys have been a winning betting proposition as away favourites over the past 12 months and they simply have too many weapons for the Panthers to deal with.
Reds vs Highlanders
Highlanders To Beat The Line (-9.5 Points)
The Reds continue to struggle this season and it is tough to see that changing this weekend. The Highlands have only lost one game as favourites in the past 12 months and they are a most impressive 8-4 against the favourite as punters elect. Taking on the Reds has proven to be a winning betting proposition for several years and 9.5 points does not look like it will be anywhere near enough.
