Each week of the NRL season, PlayUp’s Tony Caine will review some of the best bets on offer in the round.
The NRL has really spoiled us, with the season opener being a possible preview of the grand final in the first round.
Reigning Premiers Penrith take on Manly who were just one win away from the Grand Final last year.
The tryout form would indicate that Manly is ready to rock this year, if Tom Trbojevic can hold back racing fans through the Manly Corso and tear his hamstrings he has a huge chance to be both in the mix for the NRL top try scorer, paying $9.00 with PlayUp as well as Manly to win the competition paying $8.50.
Friday night is a good night for a quick grab-and-go meal, as you’ll want to be near a TV with a chill in your hand for Friday’s doubleheader games, starting with Ricky’s Raiders vs. Sharks.
The Vikings will be out in force and cheering in hopes they can lead the Raiders to a week-long win, their challenge could be the new look on the side of the Sharks traveling the federal highway looking to show off their star-studded update. line up.
The two sides don’t like each other, and I can’t separate them, so I’d walk away from picking an outcome and look at an exotic bet, maybe something like total tries – maybe a odd number paying $1.90 or even the number of tries paying $1.80 at PlayUp.
Second, Friday night the Broncos play the Bunnies at home. The Broncos are big underdogs. I expect them to be valiant and dig against the Bunnies, but I’d be comfortable charging the Bunnies and relaxed even giving a 10.5 start to get a $1.90 return with PlayUp .
Fast forward to the weekend and here are my top Super Saturday tips:
I think the Roosters will have an extra tryout this weekend and do some light work on the Knights, the loss of Jayden Brailey to the Knights as well as the return of the Roosters’ big guns gives me a lot of confidence to start the Roosters as the first step in my $1.25 multi.
For the second leg I think the Dragons can do it, it’s neutral territory, no home on either side for the second leg of my multi, I like the Dragons one on one at $1.95 .
Capping off Saturday night’s final game we have the Melbourne Storm taking on the exhausted Tigers call me crazy but I feel after what I sore in their last trial the Tigers will fight back and maybe not win but could cover the 11.5 starting point offered by PlayUp which pays $1.85.
Going into Sunday, I actually prefer games in the NRLW. Don’t miss the first game where you have both the in-form Dragons team and the Broncos team. If you have a bet, I’d love to put a few bucks on the Broncos to win against the Eels and get the job done against the rejuvenated Titans.
