NRL Tips – Rabbitohs v Roosters – Round 3 2022

NRL Betting Tips

The oldest rivalry in Rugby League is going to see the sparks flying on Friday when the Bunnies and Chooks meet for the first time since Latrell infamously broke Joey Manu’s jaw.

Best Bet

South Sydney +4 ($1.90)

South Sydney are a top-class play getting a try against the Sydney Roosters in a match that shapes as a fire-and-brimstone classic where neither team will be ready to give an inch.

This is a huge spot for the Bunnies, who have a great recent record against the Roosters. They have won three straight against the Roosters by double digits, topping 54 in two of those. Souths aren’t going well enough to pull that off but criticism of the likes of young half Lachlan Ilias are unwarranted.

Early season big home underdogs are tremendous value with those getting a try in the opening four rounds covering at 67% including in all four instances this year.

The Roosters have covered just five of 15 off a double digit win and just one of seven at ANZ.

Same Game Multi

Latrell Mitchell Try/Joey Manu Try ($6.50)

It seems serendipitous that this duo will score. Mitchell has 13 tries in his last 18 games and has scored twice in three games against the Roosters. Manu has scored 27 tries in his last 71 games.

Value Bet

Latrell Mitchell 2+ Tries ($10.00)

Souths fullback Latrell Mitchell will be fired up for this one and all the Roosters will be gunning for him, which only draws the best out of Mitchell. He has scored 28 tries in 48 games at fullback with eight doubles.
