Bet Of The Day June 16

The NRL Round 15 match between the St George Illawarra Dragons and South Sydney Rabbitohs features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Thursday June 16.

Bet Of The Day June 16 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Rabbitohs have won the last eight NRL meetings between the sides
  • Rabbitohs have won four of their last six games
  • Dragons have defeated just one top eight team all season
  • Over 36.5 points has landed in 10 of Rabbitohs last 11 games
  • Over 36.5 points has landed in four of Dragons last five games
  • Rabbitohs have scored 30+ points in their last five wins
  • Dragons have leaked 30+ points in four of their last six defeats

We’re off to the NRL for today’s best bet as the Rabbitohs look to continue their recent dominance over the Dragons.

Souths are aiming to win three games in a row for the first time this season and they’ve got an excellent chance to do it against a team that is off the pace when it comes to the top eight.

The Dragons have only beaten one team in the top eight all season and their last three wins were against the embattled Tigers, Warriors and Bulldogs. Those are the three clubs who have sacked their coach this season.

Furthermore, the Dragons have also lost to the Titans within the last month – the team currently anchored to the bottom of the ladder.

The Rabbitohs have been hovering around the lower half of the top eight all season as they search for some consistency and fluency in attack.

There’s been some promising signs lately, with the Rabbitohs winning their last two games and scoring 30+ points in their last five victories. That certainly shows their attack is starting to click. Alex Johnston is also starting to reap the benefits, scoring a hat-trick in his last two outings.

Overall, the Rabbitohs have won four of their last six games, but it’s their recent record against the Dragons that gives us confidence here, with the Bunnies winning the last eight NRL meetings between the teams.

For some extra value, we’re also going to chuck in a small total points option. We mentioned before that Souths have scored 30+ points in their last five wins – the Dragons have also conceded 30+ points in four of their last six defeats.

Additionally, the Rabbitohs have seen over 36.5 points in 10 of their last 11 games, so a high-scoring Souths win looks the best bet here.
