Canberra host a Manly team that has not recovered from their disastrous pride jersey fiasco and with the Raiders needing to win, the market thinks Ricky Stuart’s team will show up.
There are no numbers to dictate the bet in this one. No notable trends. This is simply a bet on a team that has to win to keep their finals hopes alive against a divided team that imploded four weeks ago.
Since the Sea Eagles had their seven players return from their one-week protest against inclusiveness they have conceded 36, 44 and 48 points in three losses of 16 or more points. It has been ugly and is getting uglier with no Reuben Garrick or Jake Trbojevic.
The Raiders have a poor home record in terms of covering but they have a pack that, if switched on, should dominate the Sea Eagles. The backline is also a massive plus-matchup for Canberra.
The Raiders should have their way with the Sea Eagles.

Sebastian Kris is the Raiders’ leading tryscorer this year with 12 four-pointers.
Xavier Savage has speed to burn and should be able to slice a Manly team who has given up tackling to shreds.
Nick Cotric has four tries in his last seven appearances.
The market is finally starting to catchup to Hudson Young’s tryscoring ability but with the Raiders heavily favoured and Young involved in everything, he remains value this week. He has nine tries this year including three in his last four games.
