NRL Round 9 Tips

Thursday 9/7/20

7:50pm North Queensland Cowboys vs. Sydney Roosters @ Queensland Country Stadium

The Cowboys were disappointing last week and we’re not sure where they fit in this season. They had looked good at times prior to that loss, but facing the Roosters won’t make life any easier.

The Roosters will be keen to get back to winning form following a shock loss to Melbourne. The result wasn’t a shock, but they looked home and were run down in golden point.

It should be a comfortable victory for the Roosters.

Friday 10/7/20

6:00pm Gold Coast Titans vs. New Zealand Warriors @ Cbus Super Stadium

A close game is expected this week as the Titans square off against the Warriors. The Titans were comfortably beaten by the Sharks last week, losing by 30 points.

On the other hand, the Warriors scored a comeback win against the lowly Brisbane Broncos. However, inconsistency has been the Warriors’ downfall in recent seasons.

We are leaning towards the Titans in a close contest.

7:55pm South Sydney Rabbitohs vs. Wests Tigers @ Bankwest Stadium

The Rabbitohs weren’t overly impressive in beating the Bulldogs, but they looked better than the Wests Tigers.

It was a strange game against Penrith and they lead by four points at halftime. However, some crazy high tackles ended the game on a sour note and they will be without some players for this contest.

South Sydney have also been hard to follow but they are the better side and the –5.5 isn’t a big line.

Saturday 11/7/20

3:00pm Cronulla Sharks vs. Penrith Panthers @ Netstrata Jubilee Stadium

The Sharks have looked good in recent weeks, but Penrith has established itself as one of the top teams in the NRL.

Coming off an action-packed win over the Tigers, the Panthers will look to eat into the premiership lead of the Parramatta Eels.

Cronulla is a dangerous team, so punters have to be aware of an upset, but Penrith should prevail for the two competition points.

Betting tip: Panthers –5.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now

5:30pm Brisbane Broncos vs. Canterbury Bulldogs @ Suncorp Stadium

We are seeing a Broncos team that is completely lost and it doesn’t bode well. Emotion was showed by some players following the loss to the Warriors on Saturday and more tears could come.

Brisbane has been awful since the NRL resumed and although management is sticking with the coach, losing six on the bounce isn’t good.

Canterbury aren’t much better but at least they haven’t given up. More pain could be coming for Brisbane this week.

Betting tip: Bulldogs to win @ $2.30 Bet Now

7:35pm Canberra Raiders vs. Melbourne Storm @ GIO Stadium

The Raiders and Storm do battle and it should be a quality game. The Raiders took care of the Dragons last week, but they have taken a backwards step in 2020.

Melbourne came from behind to upset the Roosters last Thursday and they get nine days to prepare for this game.

The offense didn’t look great for most of the game with Cameron Munster out, but they still managed to beat the best team in the league.

Stick with Melbourne as their confidence is up.

Sunday 12/7/20

4:05pm Newcastle Knights vs. Parramatta Eels @ Central Coast Stadium

The Knights dug deep to score a win over the Manly Sea Eagles last week but it wasn’t overly comprehensive.

They also suffered quite a few injuries during that game and now they face the Eels, who are occupying the top position on the ladder.

The Eels were emphatic winners last week and their confidence is sky high. It is likely to continue this week and the head-to-head odds are good value.

Betting tip: Eels –3.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now

Eels by 8

6:30pm St George Dragons vs. Manly Sea Eagles @ Netstrata Jubilee Stadium

Things are getting a little desperate for both teams but it is Manly who should come away with the win.

Not much has gone right for the Dragons and although they beat the Titans, that’s hardly a standout victory.

Manly needs to recover following a loss to the Knights but they looked good at times and Cherry-Evans is due for a big game.

Betting tip: Sea Eagles –3.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
