After a brutal start to the season, Manly run into an opponent they have roundly thumped in recent years.
Manly -10.5 ($1.90)
Manly have owned Canterbury in recent years, The Sea Eagles have won six straight against the Bulldogs with five of those coming by 12 or more points. Included in that run was an astonishing 66-0 win that could seriously have been much more if the Sea Eagles didn’t take the foot off the accelerator.
Canterbury have defended well but Manly are a different level altogether compared to the Cowboys and Broncos. Matt Burton has been sensational but the fact Jayden Okunbor and Jake Averillo have again been selected again for the Bulldogs.
Manly return to Brookvale and are in need of a dominant performance, making the minus an attractive proposition.
Same Game Multi
Tom Trbojevic 2+ Tries/Jason Saab Try/Reuben Garrick Try ($10.50)
This trio scored an astonishing 77 tries between them last year.
Trbojevic had eight games with multiple tries from 18 appearances including two hat-tricks against the Bulldogs.
Saab scored five tries in two games against the Bulldogs last year while Garrick scored two in two.
Haumole Olakau’atu Try ($4.00)
Olakau’atu is the perfect type to take advantage of Canterbury’s vulnerable edge defence. He crossed eight times last season including against the Bulldogs when the teams met last.
