Bet Of The Day July 8

The NRL Round 17 match between the Newcastle Knights and South Sydney Rabbitohs features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Friday July 8.

Bet Of The Day July 8 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Rabbitohs have won 11 of the last 13 meetings between the teams
  • Rabbitohs have covered the -4.5 line in all 11 of those wins
  • Rabbitohs have covered the -4.5 line in seven of their eight wins this season
  • Rabbitohs have won their last five games at McDonald Jones Stadium
  • Knights have lost five of their last six home games
  • Rabbitohs have won four of their five games vs teams in the bottom five

We’re off to the NRL for today’s best bet as the Rabbitohs look to continue their recent dominance over the Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Souths have been inconsistent all season, but they produced one of their best performances of the year last week, with Latrell Mitchell returning from injury to help lead them to a 30-12 victory over the Eels.

The Rabbitohs are a different team with Latrell lining up and coach Jason Demetriou will be hoping his side can start to build some momentum heading into the business end of the season.

What better way to start than Friday night against a Knights side who have lost five of their last six home games.

Souths also have a great record at McDonald Jones Stadium, winning their last five games at the venue.

We mentioned the Bunnies have been erratic this season, but they’ve generally done a good job of taking care of the lesser sides, winning four of their five games against teams in the bottom five on the ladder.

Furthermore, the Rabbitohs have an excellent recent record against the Knights, winning 11 of the last 13 meetings between the teams.

As a result, we’ll be taking the Rabbitohs to cover the -4.5 line tonight, which they’ve done in all 11 of those aforementioned wins over Newcastle.

Souths have also covered the -4.5 line in seven of their eight victories this season, so we can back the Bunnies at the line with confidence here.
