The NRL Round 23 match between Sydney Roosters and St George Illawarra Dragons features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Sunday August 22.
Bet Of The Day August 22 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
We’re off to the NRL for today’s best bet as the Roosters continue their push for a top four finish against the slumping Dragons.
The Dragons haven’t won since Paul Vaughan’s infamous barbecue and come into this encounter on a five-match losing streak.
Although still mathematically in with a chance for the finals, the reality is that their season is over after a series of disappointing performances that saw them lose four of those games by 13+ margins.
By contrast, the Roosters have won five of their last six games and have their destiny in their own hands – keep winning, and they will finish in the top four.
The Roosters will be confident of coming out on top here having won the last six meetings between the teams.
We can find some more value in backing the Roosters with under 52.5 total points.
In recent times, clashes between these two teams have been relatively low-scoring affairs, with 24 of the last 25 games producing under 52.5 total points.
Additionally, seven of the Dragons’ last eight matches have seen under 52.5 points and the Roosters last eight consecutive games have seen under 52.5 points.
All signs point to another Roosters win and under 52.5 points on Sunday.
- Roosters have won the last six meetings between the sides
