NRL Round 14 Tips
6:00pm Manly Sea Eagles vs North Queensland Cowboys @ Lottoland
The momentum of the Sea Eagles took a big hit in Round 12 when suffering an 18-10 defeat at the hands of the Newcastle Knights.
That form hasn’t been franked by the Knights since, so although they were a touch unlucky, it was an untimely and unexpected loss.
The Cowboys come off a stunning 29-28 win over the Warriors. It was a nice comeback late in the game and they could continue that momentum on Friday.
Betting tip: North Queensland Cowboys +9.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cowboys by 2
7:55pm Cronulla Sharks vs Penrith Panthers @ Netstrata Jubilee Stadium
The Panthers are no longer unbeaten after losing to the Tigers last week. However, they struggled without their State of Origin stars.
Losing the likes of Nathan Clearly, Jarome Luia and Brian To’o is tough to overcome and a bounce back is expected against the Sharks.
They will have to back up after Wednesday’s representative game, but we’re not keen on the Sharks and the Panthers should take care of business.
Betting tip: Penrith Panthers –9.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

3:00pm Gold Coast Titans vs Sydney Roosters @ Cbus Super Stadium
The season hasn’t gone to plan for the Gold Coast Titans, which are sitting in 12th despite making some solid off-season acquisitions.
Looking to add to their hurt are the Sydney Roosters, who have dropped out of the top four but they’re always around the mark during the Origin period.
We can’t back the Titans with any confidence and until they show otherwise, we’ll be backing against them in the foreseeable future.
Betting tip: Sydney Roosters –11.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

5:30pm South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Newcastle Knights @ Stadium Australia
Just when you think the Knights have turned their season around, they suffer a 40-4 defeat to the Parramatta Eels.
They were unable to follow up an upset win over the Sea Eagles, and they couldn’t have been more disappointing. Allowing 40 points can’t be happening to a team of their ability, but not having Kayln Ponga is the reason.
We expect the Rabbitohs to provide the Knights with another heavy loss. They are sitting in the top four and this shouldn’t be a tough game.
Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs –16.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rabbitohs by 24
7:35pm Canberra Raiders vs Brisbane Broncos @ GIO Stadium
What has happened to the Raiders? They are 13th after a shocking start to the season and we believe coach Ricky Stuart’s job is under fire.
They face the Broncos on Saturday night, which are sitting one off the bottom of the table. It has also been a disastrous season for the Broncos, but they are capable of producing an upset.
Bookmakers have the line at 8.5, which is enough points for the visitors to keep it close.
Betting tip: Brisbane Broncos +8.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Raiders by 4
2:00pm New Zealand Warriors vs Melbourne Storm @ Central Coast Stadium
The Warriors let one get away when losing by a point to the Cowboys in Round 12. It was a disappointing finish after leading by six points with 10 minutes to go.
They will need to rebound quickly against one of the best teams in the competition, which won’t be easy. Melbourne is $1.18 to win, which isn’t giving the Warriors much respect.
The Warriors are without Reece Walsh, which is a shame. Melbourne could take advantage, but the team could be affected by injuries from Origin, so keep an eye on the team lists.
Betting tip: New Zealand Warriors +14.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Storm by 10
4:05pm Parramatta Eels vs Wests Tigers @ Bankwest Stadium
The Eels and Tigers come off impressive Round 13 victories and it should make for an exciting clash on Sunday.
Parramatta put the Knights to the sword with a 40-4 win. It was a blowout effort that should have sent warning signs to the rest of the opposition.
Wests got past the Penrith Panthers without their stars, but it was still a good showing. We’re not sure it’s good enough to get past the Eels, but 10.5 points is a lot to cover.
We like the Tigers to keep this one close.
Betting tip: Wests Tigers +10.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Eels by 6
4:00pm Canterbury Bulldogs vs St George Dragons @ Stadium Australia
Not much is going right for the Bulldogs and the Dragons should take care of business on Monday.
They come off a strong win over the Broncos and scoring 52 points should give St George plenty of confidence against the Dogs.
Bookmakers have only 13.5 points the difference and although the Bulldogs could keep it close at the half, expect the Dragons to pull away.
Betting tip: St George Dragons –14.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
