Canterbury are in the rare position of favourite and that means betting against them.
Canterbury will go into a game favoured for just the fifth time in the last four years. New Zealand, with the second fewest games as favourite and stuck in Australia for three seasons, have been the odds-on pop 23 times in that period. The Dogs have covered just one of four in the spot so clearly cannot be bet at such a short price.
The Tigers were awful last week but there were excuses. They are also a strong bounce back team covering 12 of 19 off a loss of more than 20 and 17 of 28 off conceding 30-plus.
The Wests Tigers have won 4 of 5 against the Bulldogs and look very good value this week even though they must be taken on trust.
Same Game Multi
Canterbury have been beaten 13+ six times this season and three of the last four Tigers wins against the Bulldogs have been by at least 12.
Ken Maumalo has 10 tries in 12 games this season.
Luke Garner has been excellent as a tryscoring proposition of late crossing four times in his last five games and all at odds of better than $4. He has scored five tries in his last five games against the Bulldogs.
