Tigers v Rooster NRL Betting Guide

The Monday night fixture in the NRL sees league-leaders Sydney Roosters make the journey to Wests Tigers in what is set to be an entertaining encounter between two teams at different ends of the ladder.

At the moment, the Roosters are top of the standings, but the Tigers are sitting in 15thplace and are on an awful run of form. It is going to be tough for the hosts to take anything from this one.

Sydney Roosters could be in second place by the time this one gets underway and that will mean they are desperate for a result, which could be a worrying sign for their opponents.

The Roosters have now won seven matches in a row, so are in fine form and look to be the best side in the NRL right now.

Even when not playing at their best, they seem to grind out results and if they are strong in the opening stages of this one, it could turn into an extremely one sided clash.

When looking at the odds from the bookmakers, you can see that Sydney Roosters are the big favourites to come out on top. The best value you can get on a win for the league-leaders is 1.06 over at Betfair, so there might be other markets you want to look at to get some decent odds on your bets.

As for the Tigers, they are the team bang out of form in the NRL and take on the Roosters at the worst possible time.

It is now five defeats in a row for the Wests Tigers and they haven’t looked good going forward or defensively. It is tough to make a case for a win for the underdogs, but with odds of 11.00 over at, some might like the look of a punt on the Tigers as you never quite know what is going to happen in this cracking tournament.

It might be worth heading into the first scoring play market though as the bookies have more appealing odds here.

If you think the Roosters will score a try to get the scoring underway, you can back that happening at 1.33 with Sportsbet.

The same bookie than has odds of 3.6 on Tigers grabbing the first try of the match.

We think Sydney Roosters will win this one, but can’t see it being the drubbing that many think it will. That is why for us, backing the Roosters to win by less than 12.5 points is great value at 5.00 over at Betfair.
