The NRL Round 20 match between the Newcastle Knights and Wests Tigers features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Friday July 14.
Bet Of The Day July 14 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
- Knights have won the last three meetings between the teams
- Knights coming off 66-0 win vs Bulldogs in last game
- Knights have won their last four home games vs teams on a losing streak
- Tigers have lost 13 of their 16 games this season
- Tigers have leaked 166 points across their last four defeats, including 100 in their last two
We’re off to the NRL for today’s best bet as the Knights look to move up the ladder when they meet the embattled Tigers at McDonald Jones Stadium.
If the Knights are serious about mounting a late charge for the finals, then this is a game they must win. The Tigers are bottom of the ladder and have been demolished over the last month or so.
Indeed, it looks as if the Tigers are set to pick up their first wooden spoon since becoming a joint-venture, with the club winning just three of their 16 games this season.
For a while it appeared the Tigers could be turning things around, but they’ve slipped to new lows over the last month, losing their last four games and conceding 166 points in the process, including 100 in their last two.
Going on the road, it’s unlikely the Tigers will be able to mount any sort of challenge here.
Newcastle have won their last three games against the Tigers and prevailed in their last four home outings against teams on a losing streak, so they know how to get the job done in these sorts of situations.
Furthermore, the Knights are coming off a seismic 66-0 crushing of the Bulldogs in their last outing. Kalyn Ponga and Bradman Best are playing some cracking footy at the moment, so I think Newcastle’s attack has a lot of points in them at home against the worst team in the competition.
The Knights should be able to cover a relatively small -10.5 line in victory tonight.
