Monday night footy doesn’t get much better than this when the Roosters look to rise above their recent defeats and hold off the resolute Titans in a not-to-be-missed thriller at Sydney Football Stadium.
After being hailed as one of the top Premiership chances winning five on the trot, the Chooks have had a recent hiccup losing two straight, first to the Dragons and then a shock loss to the Sharks last week.
Sydney have now dropped down into fifth on the ladder but there is still plenty of love for them as Ladbrokes.com.au have the Chooks at short odds of $1.67 to ‘Make the Top 4’.
The Gold Coast have continued to answer their critics of late stinging together four tidy victories to boost them up to second spot on the ladder, now second favourites behind the Dragons to ‘Make the Final’ at $3.75 through Ladbrokes.com.au.
Despite the Titans great recent form and position on the ladder, playing away from home they will start the underdogs and are at $2.35 through Ladbrokes.com.au while the Roosters are currently paying $1.60.
When they met at Skilled Park back in Round 12 the Titans couldn’t match the Chooks and it could be a repeat result with late-season tensions high.
Another nightmare match for tippers as the Roosters will be hard to beat at home, but the Gold Coast continue to improve and have the determination to win.
There’s also the clash between the Minichiello brothers to look forward to!
Despite the claims for the Gold Coast, we are sticking with the tri-colours here.
