Friday night footy is set for a ripper of a game this week when 14th spot (West Tigers) on the ladder hosts the 13th spot (South Sydney Rabbitohs).
With Souths coming off a 3 game losing streak we should be set to see them bounce back this weekend. WHO WILL WIN…..
Both teams are putting on an average of 2.6-2.8 tries per game this season we should be looking for an unders of around 32 total game points. Tigers know how to offload so I would not be surprised if they take on the Souths big men up the middle and pop an offload for the supporting man.
With the tigers poor right hand defense, we would be looking for any time try-scorer who plays on that left hand side of attack.
If you are looking for some fantasy try-scores, then look no further then the lightning David Nofoaluma for the West Tigers. On avg he scores 51.3% of the time and has an electric turn of foot. Keep an eye out for his name on the team list as he had a knee injury last game against the Sharks but stayed on the field. He is set to line up against England for Samoa this weekend.
Tough game to pick and could go either way with the way these two teams are playing, if you are looking for a betting strategy then try find value in the overs/unders markets or the anytime try-scorer on the left hand side attack for Souths or for Wests around the left hand side of the upright. Where Aaron Woods, would usually be floating. The line is only 1.5+ for the Tigers and looks to be a very close game on paper, I am recommending waiting for the team sheet to be released before deciding what is the best line margin to take. With Woods out and Nofoaluma in doubt I would be looking towards the Rabbits to take this out!
