We have expert betting tips for NRL Round 13, which kicks off on Thursday with the Gold Coast Titans vs North Queensland Cowboys.
There are only four games on this week as State of Origin kicks off on June 8th. It’s a short but exciting round of rugby league action and we have our best bets available.
NRL Round 13 Tips
7:50pm Gold Coast Titans vs North Queensland Cowboys @ Cbus Super Stadium
It’s hard to bet on the Gold Coast Titans given what happened last week. They blew a 20-point lead against the Brisbane Broncos with 28 minutes left, so it’s not a good sign.
They continue to play well in the first half before capitulating in the second half, so we’re going with the North Queensland Cowboys to win.
The Cowboys didn’t play too poorly against the Penrith Panthers last week but were unable to show much offence. They will find this much easier, and despite missing players to Origin, they’re well-placed.
Betting tip: North Queensland Cowboys –6.5 @ $1.95 Bet @ PlayUp

7:55pm Penrith Panthers vs Canterbury Bulldogs @ BlueBet Stadium
The Penrith Panthers are numerous players missing due to State of Origin but they’re second-string side should be too strong for the lowly Canterbury Bulldogs.
Penrith comes off a devastating win over the North Queensland Cowboys and it’s clear that the defending champions are the favourites to win again.
Canterbury sits in last position and it might not move from there. The Bulldogs were beaten by the Dragons last week, and despite Josh Addo-Carr playing after his Origin snub, it’s unlikely to change the result.
Take the –10.5 line with bookmakers.

7:35pm Manly Sea Eagles vs New Zealand Warriors @ 4 Pines Park
Desperation is the theme for the Manly Sea Eagles vs New Zealand Warriors as both teams need a win.
The Warriors continue to look awful after another loss to the Newcastle Knights and there is no leadership on the field, which makes it tough.
The Sea Eagles aren’t playing any better after losing to Melbourne 28-8, but they get longer to prepare for this game and that could make the difference.
Bookmakers have the current line at –3.5 for Manly, so we’re taking that line with confidence.
Betting tip: Manly Sea Eagles –3.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

4:05pm Canberra Raiders vs Sydney Roosters @ GIO Stadium
Bookmakers have framed an even betting contest between the Canberra Raiders and Sydney Roosters.
Origin makes it a tough game to predict, but given the way they have played recently, we’re going with the Roosters.
It will take a big effort with their Origin stars out of action but we can’t part with our hard-earned money on the Raiders. They’re not playing well enough and the struggles could continue in Round 13.
Sydney is paying $1.65 to win and those odds could firm considerably throughout the week.
Betting tip: Sydney Roosters @ $1.65 Bet @ PlayUp
