We have expert betting tips for NRL Round 12, which starts with the Broncos vs Storm on Thursday night.
Punters get some excellent games to bet on this week and we do the form for every Round 12 game.
NRL Round 12 Tips
7:50pm Brisbane Broncos vs Melbourne Storm @ Suncorp Stadium
The Broncos created a huge upset when beating the Roosters last week and that should give them a lot of confidence.
They were helped by Victor Radley getting sent off twice and the Roosters have injury problems, but it was still a classy performance.
Melbourne defeated the Raiders 34-10 and that was a statement win. They looked excellent and we can’t see the Broncos beating two top-level teams in consecutive weeks.
Betting tip: Melbourne Storm –18.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Storm by 22
6:00pm North Queensland Cowboys vs New Zealand Warriors @ Country Bank Stadium
The Warriors fought bravely to beat the Tigers last week, which unearthed potential star Reece Walsh.
He had a huge game for the Kiwi-based franchise and we expect their form to continue against the improving North Queensland Cowboys.
Bookmakers have them at $1.90 a piece, which is a value price for the Warriors. They have more upside than the Cowboys this season.
Betting tip: New Zealand Warriors to win @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

7:55pm Wests Tigers vs St George Dragons @ Bankwest Stadium
The Tigers didn’t play too poorly when losing to the Warriors last week, so they should derive plenty of benefit.
It was a better display than that of the Dragons, which lost to the struggling Cronulla Sharks by a late field goal. It was a tough way to lose, but it could be that kind of season for St George.
Betting on the Tigers with confidence isn’t easy, but they should have too many guns.
Betting tip: Wests Tigers –5.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tigers by 10
3:00pm Penrith Panthers vs Canterbury Bulldogs @ BlueBet Stadium
The Penrith Panthers are in cruise control and we’re not sure when they’re going to lose their first game.
It certainly won’t be against the Panthers on Saturday and the bookmakers agree. They are 31.5-point favorites against the worst team in the competition and it should be a cake walk.
Canterbury hasn’t been playing too poorly, but Penrith are on another level.
Betting tip: Penrith Panthers –31.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Panthers by 42
5:30pm South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Parramatta Eels @ Stadium Australia
The Rabbitohs were mauled by Penrith in Round 11 and it’s going to take a big effort to bounce back.
Luckily, the Parramatta Eels also suffered a big loss, so both teams are licking their wounds. The Eels were smashed by the Sea Eagles and it was a concerning effort.
South Sydney has a chance to get back to its best and although we’re expecting a close contest, we give the edge to the home side.
Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs to win @ $1.71 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rabbitohs by 8
7:35pm Sydney Roosters vs Canberra Raiders @ Central Coast Stadium
The Roosters and Raiders are two more teams needing to bounce back after disastrous Round 11 performances.
Sydney was hit for six against the Brisbane Broncos and putting up only six points against that defence is a poor effort.
Canberra was outmuscled and outclassed against Melbourne, but they could keep this game close against a team struggling with consistency.
Take the Raiders with the double-digit head start.
Betting tip: Canberra Raiders +11.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Roosters by 10
2:00pm Cronulla Sharks vs Gold Coast Titans @ Coffs International Stadium
The Titans hit back nicely with a convincing win last week and that should give them confidence against the Sharks.
Cronulla also comes off a win, but the 13-12 performance against the Dragons wasn’t the most inspiring effort.
We’re not surprised the Titans are favoured to win and we agree with bookmakers. They should have the class edge, especially in the forwards, to get the job done.
Betting tip: Gold Coast Titans to win @ $1.71 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Titans by 6
4:05pm Newcastle Knights vs Manly Sea Eagles @ McDonald Jones Stadium
Not much is going right for the Knights, but it’s the opposite for Manly, which has won five of its last six games.
The Sea Eagles were far too good for the Eels and despite being only sixth on the ladder, they are playing like a top-three side.
Newcastle will struggle to stay in touch and it should be a comfortable cover for Manly.
Betting tip: Manly Sea Eagles –11.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
