NRL Round 11 Tips

Thursday 19/05/22

7:50pm Newcastle Knights vs Brisbane Broncos @ McDonald Jones Stadium

There is something in the water at Brisbane, who have exceeded expectations even to this point.

The Broncos have moved into the top eight with a stunning 38-0 victory over the Manly Sea Eagles, which holds them in good stead.

Newcastle showed ability in beating the Bulldogs, but it was a dour game. Stick with the Broncos to get the job done easily.

Betting tip: Brisbane Broncos –7.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

Friday 20/05/22

6:00pm Wests Tigers vs Canterbury Bulldogs @ Leichhardt Oval

The poor season continues for the Tigers and Bulldogs, who are languishing at the bottom of the NRL ladder.

There were no positives to take from the Bulldogs loss to the Knights last week, so we have to go with the Tigers to win.

They have more attacking flair and punters get fair odds for the home side.

Betting tip: Wests Tigers @ $1.85 Bet @ PlayUp

7:55pm Parramatta Eels vs Manly Sea Eagles @ CommBank Stadium

The Parramatta Eels fought back against the Roosters last week but chalk it up as another loss. However, they played much better than Manly.

It was a poor performance from the Sea Eagles, who failed to score a point against Brisbane and that could have a lengthy flow-on effect.

We’re not surprised by the weight of money coming for the Eels with bookmakers.

Betting tip: Parramatta Eels –8.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

Saturday 21/05/22

3:00pm St George Dragons vs New Zealand Warriors @ Netstrata Jubilee

Just when it looked like the New Zealand Warriors were in for another drubbing, they make a comeback to lose by only two points against the Rabbitohs.

Showing that they haven’t given up is a good sign, especially against a St George Dragons outfit that isn’t playing any better.

We’re expecting a close game but the $2.60 for the Warriors is too good to pass up in this situation.

Betting tip: New Zealand Warriors @ $2.60 Bet @ PlayUp

Warriors by 4

5:30pm North Queensland Cowboys vs Melbourne Storm @ Country Bank Stadium

There are some injury concerns for the Melbourne Storm and we think the North Queensland Cowboys could capitalise.

They are playing excellent footy at the moment and it has been a big turnaround from the start of the season.

Melbourne comes off a tough loss to the Panthers, but they’re missing key players and we can’t take the $1.50 available. We would prefer to take the risk with the Cowboys at the much better odds.

Betting tip: North Queensland Cowboys +5.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

Cowboys by 2

7:35pm Sydney Roosters vs Penrith Panthers @ SCG

The Penrith Panthers couldn’t have been more impressive when beating Melbourne last week and that form should continue.

It’s never easy to back up a big performance with another, but the Roosters haven’t looked incredible and there are no weak spots in the Panthers roster.

Bookmakers have the Panthers at $1.25 despite being on the road, so there is market confidence and that’s likely to continue throughout the week.

Betting tip: Penrith Panthers –10.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

Panthers by 14

Sunday 22/05/22

2:00pm South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Canberra Raiders @ Apex Oval

The Rabbitohs did their best to choke against the Warriors last week but they held on for the two-point win.

It wasn’t a confidence-inspiring win and losing Adam Reynolds has had a bigger effect than they would have imagined, but they are better than the Raiders.

Canberra comes off a win but it wasn’t a high-quality game. We expect them to struggle against the Rabbitohs, who should be more focused in the second half.

Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs –5.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

Rabbitohs by 10

4:05pm Gold Coast Titans vs Cronulla Sharks @ Cbus Super Stadium

The Cronulla Sharks need to rebound from a disappointing 30-10 loss to the Canberra Raiders, but the sportsbook believes they will.

They have a better team on paper than the Titans, but Gold Coast comes off a 20-16 win over the Dragons and that could see it improve.

Punters get +6.5 points for the Titans at home and we’re not turning down that value.

Betting tip: Gold Coast Titans +6.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
