Canberra will be expecting to improve returning to home but face a difficult matchup against Gold Coast.
Under 39.5 ($1.90)
Canberra see the cavalry return with Brad Schneider back at halfback and Jordan Rapana and Nick Cotric returning on the wing. They will be scarred from last week’s loss to the Cowboys and the news Josh Hodgson will miss the season will hardly lift spirits.
Gold Coast are unchanged and have been excellent as an underdog but have a poor recent history against the Raiders.
The top play in this one is the under, which has already seen the line drop. The under has hit in four of the last five Titans-Raiders games and the Raiders are a huge under team at home and when favoured. The under has hit in five of six Titans games off a win. The total for this should be 36.5 so the 39.5 is very enticing.
Same Game Multi
Alternative Total Under 30.5/Greg Marzhew Try ($11.00)
Scoring has been well down this year with the under 15-1 and six of the 16 games have tallied 30 or fewer.
Greg Marzhew has scored eight tries in 10 games and the beast has a tremendous combination of strength and speed.
Joseph Tapine Anytime Try ($8.00)
Raiders forward Joseph Tapine is a quality tryscorer for a prop with 22 tries in 142 games. The Titans have shown some vulnerability through the middle. Tapine is over the odds here.
