NRL Tips – Sharks v Cowboys – Finals Week 1 2022

NRL Betting Tips

The Sharks and Cowboys have a famous finals history and look set to add to it this weekend in the closest betting matchup of the week featuring two teams returning to September action.

Best Bet

Cronulla -2.5

This is a highly compelling matchup and the fact the Sharks managed to win home field advantage could prove key here.

Cronulla have won five straight against North Queensland at Shark Park while they have won eight on end overall. Four of the last five wins have been by double digits. In the last 14 meetings, Cronulla have covered 12 of them.

The Sharks tend to hold form off a big attacking performance. Craig Fitzgibbon’s team have covered six of seven off a win of more than seven points and eight of 11 off winning by 20-plus. Cronulla have covered eight of nine off scoring 30-plus.

North Queensland have been a bettors dream this year with 16 covers from 24 but they have lost their last four against Top 8 opposition (excluding Penrith last week, who fielded their NSW Cup team). The Sharks look the play in this one.
