NRL Week 1

Updated: Mar 17


Round 1 of the NRL is here, season 2021 without Cameron Smith.

Some criticism of Smithy and how he's gone about it all, I think he's a farken legend.

The league previews this year, we're going to provide our best bet for the weekend and a suggested multi.

By the end of the season, there's just some games that no one really cares about, so we'll be focusing on the big games or bets that we like.

Alright, week 1.

Match of the Round is clearly on opening night, Storm ($1.85) vs Rabbitohs ($1.95).

Bellamy vs Bennett, this is going to be a ripper. I've tipped the Storm to win the whole thing this year, but perhaps they might be vulnerable in week 1 against the Bunnies. Really not sure who wins, I'll be backing either team to win by less than 8 points, I think you can get about $2 for that. That being said, the Storm haven't lost in Round 1 for many years and Souths haven't won down in Melbourne for just as long. So maybe slight lean to Melbourne but not convinced.

The Knights ($1.52) look under the odds on Friday evening against the Bulldogs ($2.50), while the Broncos will be wanting to be at the very least competitive @ Suncorp on Friday night. I would love to think the Broncos with 8.5 start @ $1.90 is a good bet, but I am weary. No betting for me on Friday night.

Three games on Saturday, starting with the Warriors ($2.20) & the Titans ($1.65). I think the Titans are in for a big year and they'll start off well here, then the Roosters and Panthers should be too good you'd think in the matches that follow.

Sunday afternoon rugba leeg, ahhh how good is it, that'll be the Raiders ($1.33) too good for the Tigers ($3.25) and then the Sunday evening game is probably a Round 1 grand final for both these teams, Dragons ($2.20) & Sharks ($1.65).

I think the Dragons are nearly the value bet of the weekend, Hunt & McCullough in the #7 & #9 jerseys respectively and the centre pairing for the Dragons is red hot. I think the Sharks could be almost wooden spooners and John Morris will be first coach fired in 2021.

I know that sounds awful without it even being Round 1, but jeez the Sharks look thin this year.

Weary in week 1, just want to see what teams can do this weekend, 5 or 6 on the tips would be a good result.

Here's what I'll be doing this weekend.

Starting Bank = $100

Best Bet: $50 on Panthers 13+ @ $2.10

Multi: $50 multi Roosters, Panthers & Raiders @ $2.21
