The NRL Round 11 match between the Wests Tigers and Canterbury Bulldogs features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Friday May 20.

Bet Of The Day May 20 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Betting Points

  • Bulldogs have lost eight of their 10 games this season
  • Bulldogs have lost 10 of their last 11 games at opposition venues
  • Tigers have won three of the last four meetings between the teams
  • Bulldogs have failed to cover the -4.5 line in seven of their eight defeats this season
  • Josh Addo-Carr has scored five of the Bulldogs’ last eight tries and is sidelined for this game
  • Bulldogs haven’t scored more than 16 points in a game this season

We’re off to the NRL for today’s best bet as the Tigers look to pile more misery on the embattled Bulldogs when the two teams square off at Leichhardt Oval.

It’s been another nightmare season for the Bulldogs as they remain anchored to the bottom of the ladder after 10 rounds with just two wins.

Trent Barrett has departed the club as head coach, with former player and Tigers coach Mick Potter taking over in the interim. Good luck Mick!

Despite splashing the cash with several high-profile recruits arriving in 2022, the Bulldogs are still a basket case and can’t score points to save their lives.

The Bulldogs have scored eight tries in their last four games and Josh Addo-Carr has scored five of them.

In more bad news for the Dogs, Addo-Carr will miss this game with the flu. Which begs the question, just where are Canterbury’s points going to come from?

They’ve only managed one try in each of their last two games, including last week’s terrible 16-6 loss to the Knights, which was arguably the worst game of the season so far.

Yes, the Tigers aren’t travelling much better, but at least they can score tries and they have beat the likes of the Rabbitohs and Eels this season.

The Tigers have scored 20+ points in three of their last five games, while the Bulldogs haven’t even surpassed 16 points in their 10 games.

As a result, we’re backing the Tigers to prevail at home and to cover the -4.5 line, with the Bulldogs failing to cover that line in seven of their eight defeats this season.
