Round 19 is in the books and what a round it was! The Warriors thrashed the Eels, while the Bulldogs upset the Rabbitohs and the Dolphins rallied late to beat the Titans. I hope you hopped on last week because we banged our multi of the week at $9.22. We are back this week with MyBettingAustralia’s NRL Multi of the week and we have found some value across Betting Sites on the Cowboys, Storm and either team by 1-12 in the Warriors vs Sharks game.
NRL Best Tips and Multi Bet of the Weekend | Round 20
Manly Sea Eagles vs North Queensland Cowboy
July 15th, 17:30, 4 Pines Park
For our first leg of the multi of the week, we look to the Sea Eagles hosting the Cowboys. The Sea Eagles have been lackluster this season, sitting in 10th spot, while the Cowboys sit just one spot above them in 9th. Despite the Cowboys sitting in 9th spot, they have been in unbelievable form, winning their last 4 in a row, including a 74-point win against the Tigers, a 25-point win against the Storm and another 25-point win against the Rabbitohs. Their recent uptick in form has been largely due to Drinkwater, who has been playing out of his skin, scoring 5 tries and assisting 11 in his last 5 games.
The line in this game is only 3.5, and I think this is largely due to the Cowboys having Robson, Cotter, Nanai, Taulagi and Holmes playing Origin, but with them sitting in 9th spot, needing a win to continue their quest for the top 8, they should all be backing up. That’s why I am taking the Cowboys -3.5 @1.91 on Bet365.
Sydney Roosters vs Melbourne Storm
July 15th, 19:35, Sydney Cricket Ground
For our second leg of the multi of the week, we look at the Roosters hosting the Storm. Both sides should be well rested, after having the bye last week. The Roosters have been the poorest side this year based on expectation, currently sitting in 13th, with many tipping them to win the competition before it started. The Storm have been doubted by many with Papenhuyzen out and other injuries, yet they continue to get it done, sitting in 4th position.
Historically this game has been dominated by the Storm, with the Storm winning 6 of the last 7 encounters with the Roosters. This is a battered and bruised Roosters side, who are low on confidence, coming up against a Storm side with a great ability to capitalize on other sides’ weaknesses. With the Roosters poor performances this season, I can’t go past the Storm to win @1.60 on Bet365.
New Zealand Warriors vs Cronulla Sharks
July 16th, 14:00, Go Media Stadium
For our final leg of the multi we see the Warriors hosting the Sharks. Both sides are in impressive form and coming off big wins last week. The Warriors are looking to continue their great season and make finals for the first time since 2018, while the Sharks are looking to finish in the top 4 for the 2nd consecutive year. Both sides are playing incredible attacking footy, with the Sharks scoring the most points in the competition and the Warriors close behind in 6th.
Both sides are unimpacted by Origin and should come out guns blazing. This one should be a closely contested game filled with points. Historically this game has been a close affair, with 4 of the last 6 games being decided by 8 points or less. I think this one will be an absolutely awesome game, with both sides having a lot to play for. That is why I am taking either team by 1-12 @1.70 on Bet365.
