2013 NRL Telstra Premiership Round 6 Draw & Betting Preview

One of the most exciting rounds of the 2013 NRL Telstra Premiership will take place this weekend with the sixth week of the competition featuring some truly epic clashes.

The traditional Friday night footy double-shot is back and things couldn’t get any hotter than an explosive Queensland derby to kick things off at Suncorp Stadium where the Brisbane Broncos host the North Queensland Cowboys.

NRL Tip of the Round: Take Melbourne Storm at their juicy $2.11 to beat the Bunnies ($1.76) on Saturday night

Brisbane will start the favourites here after their impressive 32 – 12 win over fellow sunshine state rivals the Gold Coast Titans at Skilled Park a week ago on the back of a gutsy loss to Melbourne.

The Cowboys may have been on fire last week when pulling it all out in both attack and defense to keep the Panthers scoreless (30-0) but they hadn’t done much this year before that and will need to bring it against a progressive Broncos outfit.

The other Friday night treat sees the Sydney Roosters, who were just defeated by Canberra 24 – 22 in an upset last Sunday, play the disappointing Canterbury Doggies.

Expect a fiery clash here too as big boy Sonny Bill Williams with the Chooks this year takes on the club he up and left back in 2008 for the first time.

The other headliner of Round 6 is then on Saturday night at ANZ Stadium where the two best teams of the season so far will come head-to-head with one to suffer their first loss of the season when the South Sydney Rabbithos take on the reigning premiers.

With Souths coming off their first winning five-round-opener since 1971, when they went on to take out the Premiership, they are being tipped to win this clash opening surprise shorties in the NRL odds over Melbourne.

Really juicy odds on Melbourne considering they are the competition’s most consistent crew and that they have won 17 from 20 played against the Rabbitohs including seven of the past nine.

The Bunnies have been scrapping through by the fluff of their tails but are five-from-five after a close result (24 – 22) over the Warriors last week while the Melbourne Storm remain hot favourites to go back-to-back in the Premiership betting markets having easily accounted for the Wests Tigers last Monday night (26 – 12).

Surprisingly the

Other notable fixtures will see the Manly Sea Eagles come off a good 20 – 6 win over the Bulldogs last Friday night and play the Sharks at Brookvale Oval on Sunday arvo, Cronulla having suffered an ego-bruising loss to the Eels at Parramatta last weekend; and the Dragons looking for their third when they play the Wests Tigers at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
