Super Saturday kicks off with a game that will have huge Top 8 ramifications when the Roosters host the Cowboys with the Chooks celebrating James Tedesco’s 200th.
There is plenty on the line when the Roosters host the Cowboys at the SCG on Saturday afternoon. The Roosters are fighting for a spot inside the Top 8 while the Cowboys are desperate to remain in second spot and ensure a home final in week one of the semis.
The Roosters have an excellent record against the Cowboys with four straight wins by 14 or more, scoring 28-plus in each of those. The Cowboys have covered 14 of 20 this year though including eight of 10 road games.
The top play in this one is the over.
Five of the last seven meetings between these two have topped 45 points. The over hits at 65% when the Roosters are off a double digit win and is 20-11 when they play at the SCG. The over is 22-12 when the Roosters are off scoring 30-plus.
The over has hit in eight of 11 Cowboys games too and in 14 of 21 when they bring in hot attacking form off scoring 28 or more points.
