Betting preview of the Bulldogs versus the Roosters at ANZ Stadium on Thursday.

Bulldogs Form:

The Bulldogs won in Round 6 as they comfortably beat the Cowboys 27-10. It was a great win for the Bulldogs, especially away from home. The Bulldogs start to the season hasn’t been overly impressive as they hold a 2-4 record. They have lost by an average of 14 points in 2018. While in attack, they’re scoring just 17 points per match.
