Highlanders vs Stormers
The Stormers continue to struggle against New Zealand-based franchises and the Highlanders should be able to record a comfortable win. The Highlanders have won their past seven games as home favourites and they are 4-3 against the line in this scenario, while the Stormers have lost their past six games as away underdogs.
North Queensland Cowboys vs Cronulla Sharks
This is a big occasion for the North Queensland Cowboys as Johnathan Thurston plays his 300th game and they are deserving favourites, but there is not as much between these two teams as the current market suggests. The Sharks won five of their six games as away underdog last season and winning on the road has not been an issue.
Perth Wildcats vs Adelaide 36ers
The homecourt advantage is always massive when the Perth Wildcats and the Adelaide 36ers do battle – the home team has won 11 of the past 12 games played between these two sides. The Wildcats have an excellent record as home favourites and they can take this series to a deciding game.
