Storm vs Knights
There is not much to say here other than Billy Slater, after being left out of the Queensland Origin team look to Billy to stick it up the selectors with a performance for the ages. This will not be the only reason why the Storm wins Jesse Bromwich comes back from a club lay off and we look to repay the teams trust in him. The knights face a huge task the storm have won 8 of the last 11 against this team that sit on the bottom on the ladder if the knights are any sprt of chance then they really need Daniel Saifiti to stand up and be the match winner that people say he can be. Stranger things have happened before in NRL like titans beating the storm but in this case it wont happen lightning wont strike twice, the Storm are too strong across the field to let this happen again.

Billy Slater to score a try
Eels vs Warriors
Warriors and road trips equals disaster. This season the warriors have not won on the road and average a very poor 14.8 points when playing away. The eels are a very powerful team if they score early and can play the game they want. Last week the warriors had 1849 run meters but are very inconsistent and just can not see them doing that again. The warriors have played one game at ANZ stadium that was back in 2011 which they lost.
Prediction Eels by 6
Best bet Eels 1-12
Roosters vs Broncos
This game is a clash of the titans game and could very well have a finals type of feel to it origin stars return and a broncos team back to full strength. The broncos have lost 4 of their last 5 games against the roosters in Sydney by under 12 points and given the battered and bruised Bronco players it may happen again Mitchell Pearce and star fullback Michael Gordon are in super form. For the broncos hooker Andrew McCullough returns to the side he avarges 52 tackles a game. Brisbane got the points early in the season and will look to repeat it again
Prediction Broncos in golden point
Best best. Either team 10.5 or less
Smokey bet draw after 80 mins
Dragons vs Tigers
Looking to lock in a top 4 position on the ladder the dragons have been quite a powerhouse this season who are the second best attacking side in the comp at the moment. The Dragons defence has also been rock solid and are ranked in the top 5 for stopping teams. Tigers have won just 1 game in 5 attempts at this ground. The Tigers average 2.2 trys a game to the dragons 4.3 and just can not see how the tigers can win. If they are to shock the dragons then they will need their stars to stand up and be counted and play to their very best and hope the Dragons are down.
Prediction Dragons by 10
Best best Dragons over 12.5 first half points
Cowboys vs Titans
The Cowboys welcone back Lachlan Coote and Jason Taumalolo back in the side and JT is named as a reserve. The cowboys have been playing some really good football of late and should get the job done. While the Titans on the other hand have been so up and down this season beating the Storm then loosing the next. The Titans have never won agsinst the cowboys at this ground and if they are to win then Hayne will need to lead from the front and bring his Origin form to the game.
Prediction Cowboys by 8
Best bet Titans +4 half time margin
Bulldogs vs Panthers
This match up again is between twoteams that have been poor this year so much was talked about Panthers and Dogs being in the top 8 but have been well below their best. The Dogs have been run down recently in games and if they can lead this week expect their defense stocks to make a stand and be stronger. The last time the Panthers won at ANZ against the Dogs was back in 2014 and are currently on a five game loosing streak at ANZ. The Dogs should have to much spark and power for a depleted Panthers.
Prediction bulldogs by 2
Best bet bulldogs at the line +2.5
Sea Eagles vs Raiders
Their last meeting between these two teams was an epic battle, it was fast paced full of big hits and heart break. Dylan Walker was in the thick of it blowing a chance to win the game in the last few moments before nailing a long bomb inextra time. The Raiders have won just 5 of 19 games against the Eagles and have lost 6 of the last 8 at this ground. But Manley have won just 1 home game from 6 attempts this season. The Raiders are fast and can score heavy in a short amount of time, but the Sea Eagles off load count is ranked up there with the best this season and just keep moving the ball well. Expect another epic battle as these two match up well.
Prediction Sea Eagles by 4
Best bet tri bet either team under 10.5
