Upset NRL Round 15 Tip: Dragons to beat the Eels @$2.20 – Ladbrokes.com.au

Friday night footy pits the Rabbitohs against the Titans, both teams desperate to return to winning form after Round 14 losses.

The ladder-leading Storm made it 11 from 13 for the season so far last weekend with their gritty win over the Sharks and take on the seventh-ranked Cowboys in the game most affected by the State Of Origin teams roster.

The Saturday night league game has the reigning NRL Premiers the Sharks taking on the Tigers as clear favourites in betting despite Cronulla missing five of their rep stars.

The round concludes on Sunday afternoon with a full-strength Eels outfit favourites at ANZ Stadium to beat the fourth-ranked Dragons who were embarrassed 16 – 2 by the Bulldogs on Monday night.

South Sydney Rabbitohs ($1.30) vs Gold Coast Titans ($3.65)

Friday June 16, 2017 (7:50pm) – ANZ Stadium

Little separates these two teams on the NRL Ladder in a 14th hosts 13th clash at ANZ Stadium, but all the money is on the Bunnies after their tough loss to Brisbane last Friday night. Souths were at big odds heading up to Broncos HQ, but game the home side a run for their money in a narrow 24 – 18 loss. The Titans meanwhile were defeated 12 – 34 by the Warriors on the Gold Coast and this is tougher travelling and playing with the Origin duo of Jarrod Wallace and Jarryd Hayne. South Sydney are unaffected by Origin, but they have lost both their recent games as home favourites so still present unders. That said, hard to see the depleted Titans crew atone.

Melbourne Storm ($1.65) vs North Queensland Cowboys ($2.25)

Saturday June 17, 2017 (5:30pm) – AAMI Park

The Storm secured their spot at the top of the table with a hard-fought 13 – 18 win over Sharks in the second Grand Final rematch of the season last Thursday night. They get a nice turnaround then and play at home hosting the Cowboys who ran all over the Eels (32 – 6) last Saturday night. This Top 8 clash though isn’t the showstopper it should be with State Of Origin taking away all the headline attractions out of both sides. Melbourne are clear favourites to make it four wins on the trot, especially with the Cowboys playing without JT again after their skipper only returned from injury last round. Historically Storm hold the advantage with 23 wins from 33 played against North Queensland and they should be able to get the job done again here.

Cronulla Sharks ($1.26) vs Wests Tigers ($4)

Saturday June 17, 2017 (7:30pm) – Southern Cross Group Stadium

The Sharks weren’t quite good enough to stop this season’s benchmark club in their loss to Melbourne last week, but they have a much easier assignment at home this weekend hosting the Tigers who start the longest odds of any club this round. Wests were thrashed 18 – 40 by the Roosters last Sunday and find themselves in a Wooden Spoon battle with the Knights. Cronulla are without five Origin stars, but they play a Tigers outfit looking to win without James Tedesco or Aaron Woods. That should make the big cats easy prey, but the game will be tighter than the odds suggest especially if Wests can break through the fortress Sharks defence.

Parramatta Eels ($1.70) vs St George Illawarra Dragons ($2.20)

Sunday June 18, 2017 (4:00pm) – ANZ Stadium

The Eels were woeful against the Cowboys last Saturday night, but they are favourites to return to winning form with the Dragons coming off an equally disappointing Monday night loss to Canterbury. Before last weekend Parramatta enjoyed back-to-back wins, as did the now fourth-ranked Dragons but with a bye in between their victories. St George lose Josh Dugan and Tyson Frizell to State Of Origin duties, while their competition have no one away for Game 2. The Eels usually drop the ball when taking on a team higher up the ladder and that could give the Red V an advantage at a nice price.
