The following NRL Round 6 Preview will provide an overview of each game and our best betting predictions.


Sydney Roosters vs South Sydney Rabbitohs

April 12, 2018 7:50 pm @ Allianz Stadium
Odds: Roosters $1.35, Rabbitohs $3.20

Betting preview of the Roosters versus the Rabbitohs at Allianz Stadium on Thursday.

Roosters Form:

For the Roosters, they won against the Sharks last round at Southern Cross Group Stadium. Cronk dominated the Sharks and the Roosters attack looked back on track. After last week’s win, it will be a crucial clash at Allianz Stadium and they’ll be looking for win number 4.
Last 5 Matches:
WON by 18 – Roosters 28, Sharks 10 – Round 5, 2018
LOST by 24 – Roosters 6, Warriors 30 – Round 4, 2018
WON by 30 – Roosters 38, Knights 8 – Round 3, 2018
WON by 18 – Roosters 30, Bulldogs 12 – Round 2, 2018
LOST by 2 – Roosters 8, Tigers 10 – Round 1, 2018

Rabbitohs Form:

The Rabbitohs only just lost against the Dragons last round at Jubilee Oval. Souths were close in the end and they’ll need to improve their attacking options. So in Round 6, they’ll look to rebound against the Roosters.
Last 5 Matches:
LOST by 4 – Rabbitohs 12, Dragons 16 – Round 5, 2018
WON by 4 – Rabbitohs 20, Bulldogs 16 – Round 4, 2018
WON by 28 – Rabbitohs 34, Sea Eagles 6 – Round 3, 2018
LOST by 4 – Rabbitohs 14, Panthers 18 – Round 2, 2018
LOST by 12 – Rabbitohs 20, Warriors 32 – Round 1, 2018

Prediction:

The Roosters attack is similar to the Dragons so the Rabbitohs will likely find it hard to stop the likes of Cronk and Tedesco. I do think it will be a close contest between two rivals, so the 1-12 is good value.
Roosters 1-12 $3.30


Melbourne Storm vs Newcastle Knights

April 13, 2018 6:00 pm @ AAMI Park
Odds: Storm $1.28, Knights $3.65

Betting preview of the Storm versus the Knights at AAMI Park on Friday.

Storm Form:

For the Storm, they suffered a close loss against the Tigers last round at Mt Smart Stadium. Melbourne couldn’t get going in attack and they look sloppy without Cronk at halfback. So in Round 6, they’ll look to rebound against the Knights.
Last 5 Matches:
LOST by 1 – Storm 10, Tigers 11 – Round 5, 2018
LOST by 10 – Storm 4, Sharks 14 – Round 4, 2018
WON by 16 – Storm 30, Cowboys 14 – Round 3, 2018
LOST by 2 – Storm 8, Tigers 10 – Round 2, 2018
WON by 18 – Storm 36, Bulldogs 18 – Round 1, 2018

Knights Form:

The Knights just won in Round 5 as they beat the Broncos 15-10. The Knights just outclassed the Broncos in the end. They now head to AAMI Park and they’ll be looking for another victory, this time against the Storm.
Last 5 Matches:
WON by 5 – Knights 15, Broncos 10 – Round 5, 2018
LOST by 18 – Knights 12, Dragons 30 – Round 4, 2018
LOST by 30 – Knights 8, Roosters 38 – Round 3, 2018
WON by 2 – Knights 30, Raiders 28 – Round 2, 2018
WON by 1 – Knights 19, Sea Eagles 18 – Round 1, 2018

Prediction:

Melbourne aren’t looking great at the moment and they’ve dropped Brodie Croft as a result. But I think they’ll be fired up for a home game and they’re record against the Knights looks impressive.
Storm 1-12 $3.30


St George Dragons vs Cronulla Sharks

April 13, 2018 7:50 pm @ WIN Stadium
Odds: Dragons $1.52, Sharks $2.55

Betting preview of the Dragons versus the Sharks at WIN Stadium on Friday.

Dragons Form:

The Dragons just won in Round 5 as they just beat the Rabbitohs 12-16. St George survived in the end and kept their undefeated record going. So in Round 6, it will be a crucial clash against the Sharks.
Last 5 Matches:
WON by 4 – Dragons 16, Rabbitohs 12 – Round 5, 2018
WON by 18 – Dragons 30, Knights 12 – Round 4, 2018

WON by 4 – Dragons 20, Sharks 16 – Round 2, 2018
WON by 22 – Dragons 34, Broncos 12 – Round 1, 2018

Sharks Form:

The Sharks lost against the Roosters last week 28-10. Cronulla couldn’t convert in attack and that was the major difference. They now head to WIN Stadium and they’ll look to rebound against the Dragons.
Last 5 Matches:
LOST by 18 – Sharks 10, Roosters 28 – Round 5, 2018
WON by 10 – Sharks 14, Storm 4 – Round 4, 2018
WON by 10 – Sharks 14, Eels 4 – Round 3, 2018
LOST by 4 – Sharks 16, Dragons 20 – Round 2, 2018
LOST by 6 – Sharks 14, Cowboys 20 – Round 1, 2018

Prediction:

The Sharks will likely struggle to keep up with the Dragons in attack. St George is 5-0 ATS this season and I’ll back them by 1-2 tries.
Dragons -5.5 $1.92

Broncos Form:

The Broncos only just lost against the Knights last round at McDonald Jones Stadium. Brisbane’s lack of attacking options continues and Wayne Bennett will need to make changes soon. So in Round 6, they’ll be looking to rebound against the Warriors.

Prediction:

Odds: Raiders $1.62, Eels $2.30

Betting preview of the Raiders versus the Eels at GIO Stadium on Saturday.
