The NRL Round 1 match between the Canberra Raiders and Cronulla Sharks features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Friday March 11.

Bet Of The Day March 11 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

We’re off to the NRL for today’s best bet as the Canberra Raiders and Cronulla Sharks look to start the season on a positive note in the nation’s capital.

Both sides narrowly missed out on the top eight last season, finishing ninth and 10th, and will be determined to get an opening win to start 2022 in the right fashion.

Canberra were unlucky last season with various off-field troubles disrupting their season, while their second-half performances ultimately proved their downfall.

Ricky Stuart would have drummed down the important of a complete 80-minute display for this season and they will be aiming to implement that guidance tonight.

The loss of new halfback recruit Jamal Fogarty to a knee injury is disappointing, but we believe the Raiders can still grind out a victory in front of their home fans.

Canberra have a fantastic record against Cronulla, winning the last six meetings between the teams and the last three played at GIO Stadium.

It has all the makings of a close affair as well, with seven of the last eight games between the sides being decided by a 1-12 margin.

The Sharks have signed some big names for 2022, led by Nicho Hynes and Dale Finucane – along with new coach Craig Fitzgibbon – but it might take their team a little while to gel.

Canberra have an extremely strong forward pack and can lay a marker down early when it comes to authority through the middle of the field. We’ll back the Green Machine home in a tight one at good value tonight.

Key Points

  • Raiders have won the last six games between the teams
  • Raiders have won their last three games vs Sharks at GIO Stadium
  • Seven of the last eight meetings between the teams have been decided by a 1-12 margin
