Okay, MyBookie betting faithful. If you love professional rugby, then you should be jumping for joy as the NRL makes its return to action after approximately two months off due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The NRL is the top-tier rugby-league in Australia and New Zealand. It features 16 teams that battle it out over 25 rounds to be crowned the premiership champion. Now, with the North Queensland Cowboys playing host to the visiting Gold Coast Titans, let’s find out which team is offering the best value against their NRL betting odds.
NRL Cowboys vs Titans Round 3
Why Bet On North Queensland
The Cowboys are sitting in seventh place in the NRL standings with 44 points scored and 45 allowed (-1). After dropping their opener 28-21 against Brisbane, the Cowboys rebounded to beat the Bulldogs 24-16 in their last match back on March 19. Winger Valentine Holmes has scored a team-high 26 points and four goals while 2nd row Coen Hess has a team-high 65 tackles.
Why Bet On Gold Coast
The Titans are sitting in last place in the NRL standings with 12 points scored and a whopping 70 points allowed (-58). Gold Coast lost their opener 24-6 against the Raiders and followed that up with a discouraging 46-6 blowout loss against Parramatta on Sunday. Halfback Mitch Rein has a team-high 99 tackles while winger Anthony Don has scored a team-high four points and halfback Ashley Taylor has a team-high two goals.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
While both of these teams have played just two matches so far, it’s painfully clear that Gold Coast is an absolute mess heading into this contest. The Titans were completely overwhelmed in this past weekend’s loss and I expect them to fall in this matchup against North Queensland, even if it’s not as emphatic as their most recent defeat. Keep it simple and back North Queensland to get it done despite being on the road.
