Season 2018 + 202 Units
10 Units = 2 Leg Multi @ $2.20 - Pick Your Own Line Souths +10.5 v Roosters @ $1.42 into Penrith to win @ $1.55 v Parramatta
Think given its round 1 this local derby will be fiery and very competitive throughout. Souths first game under Wayne Beentt so i expect them to be hugely motivated given the Roosters knocked them out of the Preliminary final last season. Persistent showers the past few days should see a heavy track at the SCG so hard to see the Roosters potent attack being suited in those conditions. Penrith put simply have a far stronger roster then the Eels and are playing at home. The Eels turned them over 20-0 in a trial two weeks ago in the same ground so there is no chance Penrith will be complacent here.
8 Units = 2 Leg Multi @ $2.26 Pick your own line Newcastle +5.5 @ $1.53 Into Pick Your Own Total Storm v Broncons Over 34.5 $1.48
Playing conservative with the Knights as i think they can probably win at home. They have a good record first up at home. The Sharks have beaten them 8 times in a row so i expect them to use that as motivation. The Sharks have a strong side but have had a worried pre season so I expect them to a be a little underdone. Given find conditions in Melbourne I reckon we could get a high scoring game between the Storm and Broncos. Melbourne have a potent backline whilst Brisbane have plenty of size and power with new coach Anthony Siebold known for his attacking style.
2 Units = 2 Leg Multi @ $10.20 Storm to win 1-12 v Broncos @ $3 into Raiders to win 1-12 v Titans @ $3.40
Still think the Storm will be mighty hard to beat at home they have a great record in round 1 games and against the Broncos overall. The Raiders have spent their whole season training to win close games and they can get off on the right foot in a game that is sure to be close against the an equally unreliable team in the Titans.
