Despite only being backed by 33% of Superbru tippers in Round 4, the Warriors beat the Roosters 30-6 to maintain their 100% record in this NRL season so far - a feat that only the Dragons have also managed to achieve after four games. That NZ win wasn’t the biggest upset of the round though as the Broncos were shocked by the Titans leaving 96% of tippers very upset!
Here, we’ll be looking at how many people are maintaining faith with the Broncos for Round Five in terms of tipping, as well as providing some insight into all the other fixtures that are taking place this week.
Raiders vs. Bulldogs
Round Five of NRL begins in Canberra as the Raiders’ search for a first win of the season continues against the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs have only won one game themselves (a 2 point victory over the Panthers in Round Three) and the slight majority are actually going for a home win that would see Canberra pull level with the away side on the ladder. 55% of Superbru players are tipping a home win with the average margin pick currently standing at just 0.31. A tricky one to call!
Sharks vs. Roosters
Another game that is looking quite even at Superbru as things stand, 61% are currently tipping the Sharks to defeat the Roosters. Both sides are currently 2 from four meaning many are perhaps leaning with home advantage. The Sharks also have some momentum heading into this one with both their wins coming in their last two.
Dragons vs. Rabbitohs
4 from 4 for the season and 90% of tippers expect the Dragons to make it 5 from 5 this weekend. The Rabbitohs have won two on the bounce heading into this game but the average margin pick of Dragons by 8 suggests this one should be comfortable for the home side.
Wests Tigers vs. Storm
The fact that this is another evenly split match with the Superbru audience emphasises how tough tipping is likely to be in Round Five as it has been for much of the season so far. 55% are backing an away win for the Storm and the average margin pick for their win is just 1.2.
Warriors vs. Cowboys
As is the case with the Dragons, there’s a large majority tipping the Warriors to maintain their 100% win record this weekend. They face the Cowboys in Auckland and 85% expect them to pick a fifth win of the season. The average margin pick currently stands at Warriors by 7.4
Knights vs. Broncos
Can the Broncos bounce back immediately from their defeat against the Titans that shocked the majority of NRL tippers? 56% of players are keeping faith with Brisbane as they take on the Knights in Newcastle.
Titans vs. Sea Eagles
Manly’s up and down season has been endured by plenty of NRL tippers as the Sea Eagles tend to have a majority backing them at Superbru. Round Five is no different but the relatively even split of 42% for the Titans to 58% for Manly suggests this one could go either way.
Eels vs. Panthers
Finally, the last game of NRL Round Five is set to be a walk in the park for the Panthers if Superbru tips are anything to go by. The Eels are of course yet to win this season and 89% of players expect that to still be the case come full time in Sydney.
