There is a NRL encounter on Monday to look forward to and it should be a cracking match between Canterbury Bulldogs and Gold Coast Titans at the ANZ Stadium.
The Bulldogs sit in fifth position in the current standings, so have a great chance of making the season finals and they will be looking to finish as high up the ladder as possible. The Titans are in ninth and if they finish the season well, then a top eight finish is on the cards.
This is a big game for both sides as we head into the final few matches of the season, but it isn’t a surprise to see the Bulldogs leading the way in the betting.
At the moment, you can back the home side at 1.18 to take the spoils with Betfair, so the bookies clearly fancy them here.
It is now three wins in a row for the Bulldogs, so they are in good form and they did manage a 39-0 victory recently, so look good going forward and solid at the back.
A victory here could move the hosts to within touching distance of the top three, so the points up for grabs are precious.
As for the Titans, they ended their shocking run of four straight defeats with a 36-6 win last time out, so they should come into this one with a fair bit of confidence.
As mentioned, they need to end the campaign well to make the top eight and if they manage that, anything can happen.
When looking at the odds, you can see that the Titans have odds of 5.75 with Luxbet to take the spoils on Monday and they need to produce one of their best performances of the season to win in the Bulldog’s back yard, especially as the home side look to be in good shape.
For some extra value on your bets, heading into the half-time/full-time market is always a good one and it isn’t a surprise to see that the Bulldogs leading at both stages of the game is at 1.38 with Centrebet.
The Titans then doing the same thing is at 8.5 with Sportingbet, which might be a decent bet.
For us though, the first scoring play is the way to go and although we think the Bulldogs will win this one, we like the look of a Titans try getting us underway, especially with odds of 3.15.
