St George Illawarra are in a bang-up spot to cover against Penrith in a high confidence betting game.
St George Illawarra +11.5 ($1.90)
This is a massive spot for the Dragons, who should be backed with unfettered enthusiasm and great energy this week getting a double digit start.
Let’s look at some league-wide trends. Home underdogs of more than a try in the first four rounds are 54-28 against the spread since 2008 with two covers from two spots in Round 1. It is also notable that before the league went through a major shift the last two years, home underdogs of 8 or more off a win covered at 74%.
The Dragons have covered five of their last seven against the Panthers and it is notable that Penrith are have covered just one of eight as a favourtie of 10 or more points on the road. This is a major smash spot on the Saints.
