We move into Round 7 of the 2016 NRL Telstra Premiership this week and after the opening six weeks of play the Brisbane Broncos are sitting number one on the ladder as the sole team to post five wins for the season to date.
NRL Round 7 Upset Tip: The Roosters to beat Penrith on Monday night @ $2.20 through Ladbrokes.com.au!
Brisbane were impressive last Thursday night holding the Dragons scoreless for a second week with their tidy 26 – 0 win, and play again looking to continue their dominance on Saturday night at Suncorp Stadium.
They will start very short in NRL betting at Ladbrokes.com.au as they host the 15th-placed Knights who only own their first game of the year last weekend by two points over the Tigers.
Round 7 kicks off tonight with the improving Manly Sea Eagles taking on the third-ranked Eels at Brookvale Oval.
Manly are steadily getting better and come off a 34 – 18 win over the Warriors in New Zealand, but Brookie isn’t the fortress it once was and Parramatta will bring their A-game again after defeating the Raiders by 30 points last weekend.
For Friday night footy we head up to Townsville with the competition’s second-best team currently, reigning Premiers the Cowboys, hot favourites to defeat the Rabbitohs who welcome back Adam Reynolds and with him the kicking game they’ve so desperately been missing.
St George will be looking to post their first points in three weeks after scoreless efforts in the past two rounds when they head to the Gold Coast to take on the Titans on Saturday afternoon.
Other highlights include the Raiders looking to bounce back and win at home over the Sharks who are in the Top four after winning 25 – 20 over the Titans last Sunday, and the Monday night game where the Roosters will shoot for their second win of the season after finally breaking their 2016 maiden status last Friday night over the Bunnies when they play the Panthers at Allianz Stadium.
There’s plenty of action and plenty of close matches making Round 7 a must bet-on affair, so check out the full NRL Draw below before heading to Ladbrokes.com.au for the best odds on offer!
