NRL Round 10 Tips
6:00pm Wests Tigers vs Newcastle Knights @ Suncorp Stadium
The Tigers managed to score 28 points against Gold Coast last week, but allowing 36 points won’t get the job done.
It was been a frustrating season for the Tigers and beating Newcastle should be a tough ask on Friday. The Knights come off an upset win over Canberra, so their confidence is right up.
Bookmakers have the Knights as firm favourites and it’s tough to disagree.
Betting tip: Newcastle Knights –5.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Knights by 10
8:05pm Manly Sea Eagles vs Brisbane Broncos @ Suncorp Stadium
It took 40 minutes for Manly to hit top gear against the Warriors, but it was a strong second-half performance.
It’s much better form than what the Broncos are delivering, which added another loss to the North Queensland Cowboys.
Punters are having a hard time getting behind the Broncos and it’s not surprising. There is a lack of pride in this unit, so take Manly to pile on the hurt.
Betting tip: Manly Sea Eagles -8 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

3:00pm Canterbury Bulldogs vs Canberra Raiders @ Suncorp Stadium
It doesn’t get much worse for the Canterbury Bulldogs after suffering another big loss to the Dragons last week.
They are the whipping boys of the NRL and we can’t see it improving anytime soon. Saturday’s game provides Canberra with some respite after being beaten by Newcastle.
Coach Ricky Stuart won’t be pleased with their position on the ladder, but an easy two points is up for grabs and they should score comfortably.
Betting tip: Canberra Raiders –15.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Raiders by 22
5:30pm Cronulla Sharks vs South Sydney Rabbitohs @ Suncorp Stadium
The Sharks and Rabbitohs failed to score a point in Round 9, so expectations aren’t high for a quality game.
Cronulla has hammered 48-0 against the league-leading Penrith Panthers. It was completely one sided and awful to watch for Sharks’ fans.
However, it was worse for the Rabbitohs. They were beaten 50-0 by Melbourne and that’s not good for a top-four outfit. South Sydney did have some players missing, which could have attributed to the score line.
Take the Rabbitohs to bounce back.
Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs –8.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rabbitohs by 10
7:45pm Sydney Roosters vs North Queensland Cowboys @ Suncorp Stadium
The injury toll continues to increase for the Sydney Roosters, which failed to get past the Parramatta Eels in what was a close contest for the most part.
It’s not going to be easy for the Roosters to recover from losing top-quality players and the odds are short for a victory on Saturday. Bookmakers have them at $1.28 against the Cowboys, which is too short.
We like the Cowboys to cover and they got momentum after beating Brisbane with a field goal. 11.5 points is enough of a start.
Betting tip: North Queensland Cowboys +11.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Roosters by 6
1:50pm New Zealand Warriors vs Parramatta Eels @ Suncorp Stadium
It was a game of two halves for the Warriors against Manly. They lead 20-12 at the half, but that was quickly overturned in the blink of an eye.
They did well to fight back and get within six points, but the Warriors have a knack of clocking in and out of games. If that happens against the Eels on Sunday, it will result in another loss.
Parramatta looked good against the Roosters and they are still an underrated team. The Eels are in second place and they should get past the Kiwis.
Betting tip: Parramatta Eels –7.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Eels by 10
4:05pm Melbourne Storm vs St George Dragons @ Suncorp Stadium
St George got back on track after beating Canterbury in Round 9, but it will do well to get past the flying Melbourne Storm.
Melbourne comes off a 50-0 drubbing of the South Sydney Rabbitohs and we could be looking at a similar score line against the Dragons.
St George will do well to keep in touch, but with the line at 20.5, punters should expect Melbourne to be miles too good.
Betting tip: Melbourne Storm –20.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Storm by 30
6:25pm Gold Coast Titans vs Penrith Panthers @ Suncorp Stadium
Penrith has dispatched of all comers this season and it shouldn’t be any different in Round 10.
Gold Coast did well to score a win last week, but that came against the Tigers. The level of opposition increases tenfold against the Panthers and it should be another one-sided contest.
Bookmakers have an 18.5-point difference and that’s tough to disagree with. The Panthers have been beating harder teams by more, so expect another big score line.
Betting tip: Penrith Panthers –18.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
