NRL Round 8 Tips

Thursday 25/4/24

2:00pm New Zealand Warriors vs Gold Coast Titans @ Go Media Stadium

The Warriors were poor against the Dragons last week, but we expect nothing short of a bounce back effort against the Titans.

Gold Coast played better in Round 7, but this is a game the Warriors should be targetting for a massive effort.

Covering a –12.5 line won’t be easy, but the Warriors should be too strong.

Betting tip: New Zealand Warriors –12.5 @ $1.90

4:05pm St George Dragons vs Sydney Roosters @ Allianz Stadium

The Dragons are an inconsistent team, but they can beat the Roosters on ANZAC Day.

We’re loving the $2.58 odds for the Dragons to win outright, and although the Roosters are typically a better team, they have their issues.

Injuries usually play their part, and if the Dragons want a good 2024, beating the Roosters could be the spark they need.

Betting tip: St George Dragons +5.5 @ $1.90

7:50pm Melbourne Storm vs South Sydney Rabbitohs @ AAMI Park

We didn’t expect the Rabbitohs to be this bad in 2024, but we’re prepared to give them one more chance.

They sit in 16th spot, and they’re facing the second-placed Storm. However, it’s usually a close contest involving the Rabbitohs.

Getting +12.5 points is too good to pass up, but the Rabbits are skating on thin ice.

Betting tip: South Sydney Rabbitohs +12.5 @ $1.90

Friday 26/4/24

8:00pm Manly Sea Eagles vs Parramatta Eels @ 4 Pines Park

We have been impressed with the Sea Eagles, who deserve to be favourites against the Eels.

They scored a hard-fought win over the Titans last week, and although the Titans aren’t a good team, Manly had its back against the wall.

Parramatta was dreadful in Round 7, and that gives punters no confidence. Because of that performance, the Eels are +8.5 underdogs, but we’re not parting with our hard-earned money on the visitors this Friday.

Betting tip: Manly Sea Eagles –8.5 @ $1.90

Saturday 27/4/24

5:30pm Wests Tigers vs Brisbane Broncos @ Campbelltown Sports Stadium

Brisbane is starting to turn on the jets after a big showing last week, and the Tigers won’t put up much of a fight.

The Broncos moved into third position on the NRL ladder, and we’re not surprised by the –13.5 line offered by bookmakers.

The Tigers have shown glimpses of potential, but on face value, the Broncos should run over the top of them on Saturday.

Betting tip: Brisbane Broncos –13.5 @ $1.90

7:35pm North Queensland Cowboys vs Penrith Panthers @ Country Bank Stadium

The Cowboys showed nothing against the Sharks, which is a worrying sign for the Queensland team.

Making matters worse is facing the Panthers this week, and that’s not a recipe for success for the $3.70 underdogs.

However, getting +9.5 points at home is too good to pass up. The Cowboys have enough talent to keep the Panthers from running away with it.

Betting tip: North Queensland Cowboys +9.5 @ $1.90

Sunday 28/4/24

2:00pm Dolphins vs Newcastle Knights @ Suncorp Stadium

The surprise package of 2024 are the Dolphins, who sit in third place on the NRL ladder after an impressive Round 7 win.

Wayne Bennett’s team is firing on all cylinders, and they could take care of the Knights, who are off to a slow start.

Getting the Dolphins at –6.5 is a generous line, and they could run away with another big win at Suncorp Stadium.

Betting tip: Dolphins –6.5 @ $1.90

4:05pm Canberra Raiders vs Cronulla Sharks @ GIO Stadium

The Sharks lead the competition after a smashing of the Cowboys. However, we’re not overlooking the chances of Canberra covering the spread at home.

They are a good home team and getting +8.5 at GIO Stadium is too good to pass up on Sunday evening.

It could be a tight contest throughout the game, so take the value and there is potential value with Canberra to win outright at $3.21.

Betting tip: Canberra Raiders +8.5 @ $1.90
