Round 23 wraps up with the Knights hosting the Raiders after Newcastle endured a week from hell that saw two players accused of taking illicit drugs and another two suspended.
The little hope Newcastle held going into this match was diminished even further when outside backs Bradman Best and Enari Tuala were suspended for arriving late to the team bus last week. A disastrous season just keeps getting worse.
Canberra though re not an enticing play laying 10 points. They cover at just 41% off a win.
The over is the strongest play in this game. The over has hit in 11 of 15 Knights-Raiders games. The over has hit in eight of nine Newcastle home games and is 10-4 when the Knights are a home underdog. The over is 5-2 when the Raiders are on the road.
With good conditions forecast, the over is the way to bet this game.
