NRL Round 19 2011 Tips, Odds and Predictions

Round 19 of the 2011 NRL season is rivalry round with some huge match ups making footy tipping a struggle. The odds also suggest this with South Sydney paying 1.92 to Sydney 1.90.

Best Bet of Round 19

This week I’m taking the Sharks to beat the Drangons in a straight win paying $3.30 at Sportsbet. The bookies haven’t given them much hope but I think there’s plenty of value for them.

Brisbane V Gold Coast Friday night at Suncorp Stadium

Tip: Broncos

Odds: Broncos 1.23 Titans 4.25

The way the Titans are playing at the moment I can’t see anything but a heavy defeat, they are really struggling at the moment. Brisbane are now focusing on the finals after all the attention of Darren Lockyer’s last Origin game and should finish the season well.

Warriors V Canterbury/ Bankstown Friday night at Mt. Smart Stadium

Tip: Warriors

Odds: Warriors 1.48 Canterbury Bankstown 2.68

The Warriors at home should be right here. They enjoy playing at home and will continue their good season so far.

The Bulldogs do have the game style to beat New Zealand but some errors have crept into their game causing simply turn overs. If NZ can capitalise on these errors they should have a comfortable win.

South Sydney V Sydney Saturday at ANZ Stadium

Tip: Roosters

Odds: South Sydney 1.92 Roosters 1.90

The Roosters have upped their game in the last month or so and I expect them to step it up again in this massive rivalry match at ANZ Stadium. Their attacking run has been outstanding at times which should be enough to get a winning score. Their defense has also held up well against Penrith showing some very good signs.

North Queensland V West Tigers Saturday night at Dairy Farmers Stadium

Tip: Cowboys

Odds: Cowboys 2.20 Tigers 1.69

The Cowboys showed they are a side to be taken seriously without their key man Johnathan Thurston. They not only showed last week that they can cover for him but step up a notch and play some very tough football. Keep an eye on, Glenn Hall and Dallas Johnson for the Cowboys, their attitude towards the game is what is needed to win finals games.

My prediction is the Cowboys by 10 points.

Penrith V Parramatta Saturday night at Centrebet Stadium

Tip: Parranatta

Odds: Prenrith 1.69 Parramatta 2.20

With Nathan Hindmarsh’s 300th game this week one would expect the team to lift to make it a memorable day for him. I think this is exactly how it will pan out for Parramatta and they will go home with a comfortable victory.

Penrith have found it tough against the good side and although have shown a few good signs a cant see them making it a good contest on Saturday.

Canberra V Melbourne Sunday at Canberra Stadium

Tip: Storm

Odds Canberra 2.40 Melbourne 1.59

Melbourne continue to surprise this year and will again this weekend in Canberra. Craig Bellamy has held the club together this year and helped his players to the level needed to be successful.

Although Canberra has had the wood over Storm over the last few year with names like Smith, Cronk and Slater running around the Storm are near unstoppable and will win by around 10 points.

Newcastle V Manly Sunday at Ausgrid Stadium

Tip: Manly

Odds: Knights 2.80 Manly 1.44

I predict a big win for Manly this week. They are coming up against a clumsy Newcastle side who will be overwhelmed by the attacking pressure of the Manly side.

The Knights were disappointing last week and have alot of work to do to get back up to standards.

Manly by 20

St George Illawarra V Cronulla Monday at WIN Stadium

Tip: Cronulla

Odds: St George Illawarra 1.34 Cronulla 3.30

I’m tipping an upset here and going with Cronulla who will continue their streak making it 5 in a row. The sharks beat the Dragons in round 2 this year by forcing errors and making the most of them. If they can replicate the same game style they played that day it will go along way to beating the Dragons.

I’m tipping the Sharks in a very close one.
