We’re off to the NRL for today’s best bet as the North Queensland Cowboys play host to Newcastle Knights in Townsville.
Both sides are 4-6 for the season after 10 rounds, but it’s the Cowboys who are in far better shape heading into this encounter.
North Queensland have won four of their last six matches and have tasted victory in their last three games at home.
Additionally, the Cowboys have defeated Newcastle in the last four meetings between the sides in Townsville.
The Knights have struggled away from home for a while now and are travelling to Townsville without their two most influential players in Mitchell Pearce and Kalyn Ponga.
Newcastle’s last four defeats have also been by 13+ margins, including a last-start 36-18 loss to the Tigers during Magic Round.
We’re still not super confident in the Cowboys to blow the Knights off the park, but they should still be able to win somewhat comfortably.
As such, we’ll be using the ‘Pick Your Own Line’ market for this bet. Taking the Cowboys at -8.5 at $2.15 with Sportsbet gives us some solid value while also playing it safe.
The Knights have lost six of their last eight matches and their last four by 13+ margins – with the Cowboys winning the last four encounters between the sides in Townsville, we’re confident today’s best can land.
- Cowboys have won their last four home games vs Knights
- Cowboys have won four of their last six matches
- Cowboys have won their last three games in Townsville
- Knights have lost six of their last eight matches
- Knights’ last four defeats have been by 13+ margins
