NRL Round 4 Tips
7:50pm Brisbane Broncos vs. Sydney Roosters @ Suncorp Stadium
The Broncos didn’t show up against the Eels on Thursday night and that doesn’t give us much confidence.
On the other hand, the Roosters looked like the 2018 and 2019 edition when beating the Rabbitohs. It was a one-sided game and we’re not surprised to see money coming for the Roosters.
Brisbane is better than what they showed, but there’s a distinct lack of confidence.

6:00pm Penrith Panthers vs. New Zealand Warriors @ Campbelltown Stadium
The Panthers managed only a draw against the Knights despite Newcastle having their two best players removed from the field.
It wasn’t a good performance and it should give them something to worry about, but getting Cleary back would help.
The Warriors were almost perfect on Saturday afternoon when winning 18-0 against the Dragons. They barely dropped the ball and it was unlike any other Warriors performance.
However, consistency has never been their forte. Therefore, we’re going with Penrith in a tight one.

7:55pm Melbourne Storm vs. South Sydney Rabbitohs @ AAMI Park
The Storm are one team not helped by the new rules, but we’re expecting a bounce-back performance this week.
Canberra were too brilliant against the Storm but Cameron Smith and his men rarely lose two in a row. The same goes for the Rabbitohs, but they didn’t show much last week either.
It’s not quite a desperate time for either club, but getting a win on the board helps.

5:30pm Parramatta Eels vs. Manly Sea Eagles @ Bankwest Stadium
Both teams are coming off impressive Round 3 wins but the Eels looked slightly the better.
Parramatta were miles too good for the Broncos on Thursday night and they are a team to be reckoned with in 2020.
Manly dispatched of the Bulldogs, but most teams will do that this season. It should be a close game but the edge is with the Eels.

7:35pm North Queensland Cowboys vs. Cronulla Sharks @ Queensland Country Bank Stadium
We’re loving the Cowboys this season and they were impressive last week. They could beat some of the top teams this season and the Sharks are there for the taking.
Cronulla did well to lead at halftime against the Tigers but their defense in the second half was dismal. They showed little effort to stop even the most pedestrian of offense.
Playing at home helps the Cowboys and they should win comfortably.

4:05pm Canberra Raiders vs. Newcastle Knights @ Campbelltown Stadium
The Raiders haven’t suffered from a Grand Final hangover this season and they are one of the teams to beat.
They were massive against the Melbourne Storm on Saturday night and they now face a Knights team that could be without their star players.
Bookmakers have opened the Raiders as firm favourites and they should have no problem winning this game.

6:30pm Gold Coast Titans vs. Wests Tigers @ Suncorp Stadium
The Tigers kicked back nicely to beat the Sharks on Saturday and another win looms against the Gold Coast Titans.
The Titans will be the worst team in 2020 and the Tigers could open up the floodgates and put up a big number.
They’re capable of doing so and we thought there would be a bigger difference in the head-to-head market.
Betting tip: Tigers –7.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now

4:05pm Canterbury Bulldogs vs. St George Dragons @ Bankwest Stadium
We don’t know which team was worse in Round 3, but at least the Bulldogs scored some points.
The Dragons were kept scoreless against a Warriors team that doesn’t have many defensive superstars. It was a poor display and heads should be rolling at the club.
Canterbury does play with pride on the odd occasion, so we’ll lean in their favour on Monday night.
