panthers vs sharks; nrl round 15, nrl round 25, nrl round 3, nrl ladder, panthers v souths

Read on for NRL Round 3 early mail and betting leans for each game…

NRL Round 3: Dragons vs Sharks, Thursday night

Early prediction: Close
The value: Total points under at TopSport

  • How Moses Mbye handles the move to 9 will be key for the Dragons chances
  • Sharks riding high off a strong win, but the Dragons are at home and playing tough footy
  • Tough game to pick, market about right
NRL Round 3: Tigers vs Warriors, Friday night

Early prediction: Warriors
The value: Warriors H2H at TopSport

  • Both teams winless, but with the Tigers missing one of their few solid players in Jackson Hastings
  • Warriors have been a little unlucky in their losses and are going better than the Tigers
  • At Campbeltown and backs against the wall, the Tigers could come out firing.

NRL Round 3: Souths vs Roosters, Friday night

Early prediction: Close
The value: Total points under at TopSport

NRL Round 3: Panthers vs Knights, Saturday afternoon

Early prediction: Knights to surprise
The value: Knights +12.5 at TopSport

  • Big injury news will centre on Nathan Cleary and James Fisher-Harris for the Panthers
  • Kalyn Ponga and Daniel Saifiti are likely to return and the Knights look strong
  • Very keen on Knights at the plus here, they are being criminally underrated
NRL Round 3: Storm vs Eels, Saturday afternoon

Early prediction: Storm
The value: Eels +4.5 at TopSport

  • Harry Grant has COVID and although Brandon Smith could play, this is huge loss
  • Eels have not been great so far this year, losing to the Sharks and just scraping home against Titans
  • I think the Eels are a chance of covering but doubt they will win against the gritty Storm
NRL Round 3: Raiders vs Titans, Saturday night

Early prediction: Raiders
The value: Raiders H2H at TopSport

  • Error riddled Raiders were hopeless against the Cowboys, but can bounce back at home
  • Titans were lucky in their win against the Warriors and are not going as well as people think
  • Raiders to bounce back at home, but not tipping this with much confidence

NRL Round 3: Broncos vs Cowboys, Sunday afternoon

Early prediction: Closer
The value: Cowboys +5.5 / Total points under at TopSport

  • Broncos defence has been awesome and they look a different team
  • These games are always close and I expect no different, with the Cowboys form line understated
  • Both team teams are defending very well
NRL Round 3: Manly vs Bulldogs, Sunday night

Early prediction: Closer than expected
The value: Bulldogs +10.5 at TopSport

  • Manly has had two tough games to start the year, so it’s hard to gauge just how bad they are
  • Bulldogs have copped some unfair criticism and despite their clunky attack, show some real grit in defence.
  • Doggies copped a few tough calls last week and I think they are right in this game
