We head into the final day of regular season NRL action with two interesting matchups. The first of those sees the Titans take on the Warriors which could decide if the Gold Coast scrape into the top eight, while the Bulldogs will look to round out their disappointing season against the Wests Tigers. The first game looks the one with all the interest and depending on earlier round results, could be a huge must-win match for the Gold Coast.
NRL Round 25 Sunday Betting Tips
Titans vs Warriors
Cbus Super Stadium, Sunday 2.00pm (AEST)
The Titans are limping towards the end of the season and just when things looked to be on the up, they’ve come crashing back down to earth with three straight losses. This is a must-win game however, and against a Warriors side who have nothing to play for, they should be very hard to beat. Depending on how results go this weekend, the Titans could have their own fate in their hands and they should be too strong.
The Warriors, as always have been one of the most inconsistent teams to follow all season. They made a nice little run recently and have continued to fight hard all season while being away from home. The season is now over for them and I think most of their players will be looking forward to the time off. They’ve got nothing left to play for and have been struggling as the weeks go on recently. They’ve copped two losses in a row and confidence will be way down. It’s hard to see them turning up.
The Gold Coast will be looking to rack up the points here as they try sneak into the eight. Their fate may come down to for and against as they have to make up some points against the Sharks. With a full strength team I’m expecting them to be too good today and it could end up a big score if the Warriors switch off completely.
Wests Tigers vs Bulldogs
Moreton Daily Stadium, Sunday 4.05pm (AEST)
Well it’s certainly not the most exciting way to round out the NRL season with two of the more disappointing teams doing battle. The Bulldogs have won just two games all year and I can’t see them turning that around now. The Tigers have also once again been poor, as they miss out on the finals yet for another season. They will be keen to give their fans something to cheer about to round out the season and have shown glimpses of good footy this year.
The Bulldogs just don’t have the roster to compete with many teams in this competition at the moment but they might fancy their chances against the Tigers. They have been fighting hard recently for a lot of the match but just can’t keep it going for the full 80 minutes. They will need to start well to be any hope and might fancy their chances if they can scoot out to a sneaky lead.
The Tigers have a strong record against the Dogs, winning their last three matches and would be expecting to finish the season with a win against the last-placed Bulldogs. They’ll be without Adem Douhei but there’ll be a lot of players who want to stamp their mark on the season as they play for contracts next year. On paper the Tigers should be too good but as we’ve seen with both these sides this year, you can never be too confident. I think the points line looks big for two sides who struggle in attack and that looks the safest way to play.
