NRL Round 15 Tips
7:50pm Brisbane Broncos vs South Sydney Rabbitohs @ Suncorp Stadium
It could be time to give up on the Brisbane Broncos. They were hammered by the Canberra Raiders last week and there is no energy with this club. It’s sad to see, especially for a team that used to be the highlight team of the week.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs took care of business when beating the Knights 24-10 and they are progressing nicely this season.
Bookmakers have the Rabbits as 16.5-point favorites. It’s a big line, but based on recent results, they should cover.
Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs –16.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rabbitohs by 24
6:00pm North Queensland Cowboys vs Cronulla Sharks @ Country Bank Stadium
The Sharks held an 18-0 lead over the Panthers last week and just held on to win 19-18 thanks to a Shaun Johnson field goal.
It was a nervous moment, especially considering the Panthers were playing without five of their best players.
North Queensland’s momentum came to a sudden end with a 50-18 loss against Manly. They are favourites to win this game, but we give the slight edge to the visitors.
Betting tip: Cronulla Sharks @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sharks by 4
7:55pm Penrith Panthers vs Sydney Roosters @ BlueBet Stadium
It’s a shame the Panthers have their players missing during the Origin period. We think they could have almost gone unbeaten this season, but it’s never that easy.
They will be strengthened this week with the return of their Origin stars, however, the Roosters are also fieldiong a stronger lineup so we should be seeing a competitive game with bost teams near their best.
We give the edge to the Panthers, who almost came from 18 points down to beat the Sharks. That should galvanise this team, but the –10.5 line is too much to cover against the competitive Roosters outfit. Add Penrith head-to-head in your multis.
Betting tip: Penrith Panthers to win @ $1.33 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Panthers by 6
3:00pm Newcastle Knights vs New Zealand Warriors @ McDonald Jones Stadium
The season went from bad to worse for the Warriors, who lost Chanel Harris-Tavita for the season. He’s added to a list of players missing for the Auckland-based franchise.
Ken Maumalo was traded to the Tigers, so they’re down a sizable winger. It won’t help against the Knights, who are also struggling with Kayln Ponga.
There won’t be much between them and we’ll take the value with the Warriors because of the odds.
Betting tip: New Zealand Warriors to win @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet

5:30pm St George Dragons vs Canberra Raiders @ WIN Stadium
The Canberra Raiders got back to their best form with an outstanding win over the Broncos in Round 14.
It didn’t come against top-level opposition, but that’s the case again on Saturday and they should be able to take care of the Dragons.
We are surprised to see the Raiders paying $2.25, even with State of Origin players out of action. It’s a generous price and one we’re happy to take.
Betting tip: Canberra Raiders to win @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Raiders by 4
7:35pm Melbourne Storm vs Wests Tigers @ Sunshine Coast Stadium
The Melbourne Storm destroyed the New Zealand Warriors on Sunday and another easy win looks likely.
Despite not having Origin players, the Storm should be too classy for the Tigers, who were pumped against the Parramatta Eels.
The current line is 21.5 points, which is a sizable line. However, we can’t see where the Tigers will score their points and that’s an issue.
Take the Storm to score another comfortable victory over one of the NRL’s lower-level teams.
Betting tip: Melbourne Storm –21.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Storm by 26
2:00pm Parramatta Eels vs Canterbury Bulldogs @ Bankwest Stadium
It should be another comfortable victory for the Parramatta Eels, who are still one of the underrated teams in the NRL.
They sit in third place on the ladder after putting the Tigers to the sword last week. Playing the Bulldogs won’t put any fear into this team and it should be one-way traffic from the opening whistle.
Covering a 20.5-point spread is never a given, but the Eels are a team that can pile on the points on their day.
Betting tip: Parramatta Eels –20.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Eels by 28
4:05pm Gold Coast Titans vs Manly Sea Eagles @ Cbus Super Stadium
The Titans did well to lose by a point to the Sydney Roosters last week. They were down 18-4 at the half, but produced a spirited comeback.
However, it was yet another loss and this team is struggling to win. They are 12th on the ladder and playing the Sea Eagles, who rebounded back to winning form with a blistering win over the Cowboys.
Manly has been enigmatic this season, but talented at best. It’s a tricky game and we think it will be close.
Betting tip: Gold Coast Titans +7.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
