Newcastle Knights Tips & Prediction

The Newcastle Knights are one of the best teams heading into the 2024 NRL season. 

Last year they looked dangerous, and this year in the pre-season matches the team looked deadly. With a hard-working forward pack, and a backline that is unpredictable backline that can turn a game around at the drop of a hat. This team has what it takes to surprise the tipsters and NRL experts.

One of the elements that make the Knights so dangerous is that they play as a team.

Coach Adam O’Brien has had his hands full full. With several key players injured, hooker Jayden Brailey, fullback Kalyn Ponga and halfback Jackson Hastings. The team’s depth is being tested from the Geko.

With 10 new faces added to the squad fans and NRL tipping experts are pumped to see the team play their first official game in the NRL competition for 2024.

Betting Tips Prediction – Knights to win head-to-head. Bradman Best first try scorer for the Newcastle Knights.


Canberra Raiders Tips & Prediction

The Canberra Raiders looked woeful in their pre-season trials. Having fans and tipsters highly concerned for their round 1 first game of the NRL season.

If you are a betting man and looking to have a punt on the Canberra Raiders this weekend proceed with caution!

The Raiders will need to keep this game tight to stand any chance of winning. In 2023 the Raiders turned a lot of tight games into wins, but can they keep this form in 2024?

The Canberra Raiders are starting to look a bit old and battered with the majority of the team getting up there in age. Their fresh imports are super green and lack experience. 

The consensus amongst tipsters and experts is the team won’t be as good as 2023. We are not predicting much from this team this year. Betting tip, save your money!

Betting Tips

Knights – for the win $1.36

Knights – First try scorer Bradman Best $11.50

Knights – Under 18 points paying $4.10

The Knights are almost impossible to bet against, and we won’t be betting on the Raiders this weekend at all. Head to Head the odds are tight, with the Knights looking set for the win.

The first-try scorer is always a punt, but Bradman Best is a try-scoring unit and could be worth the risk.

Knights under 18 points at $4.10 is a great deal!
