NRL round 4 betting odds and fixture
A revamped Brisbane Broncos line-up will go in as deep underdog against Sydney Roosters in Thursday night football, as the restarted NRL season heads into round 4.
The Broncos’ season has seemingly come crashing down after being thrashed 34-6 by Parramatta and suffering several key injuries and suspensions, which will force several changes to an already undermanned outfit.
A laceration injury to Broncos captain Alex Glenn and a one-match suspension to Kotoni Staggs for a high tackle have seen the Broncos’ odds of defeating the Roosters blow out to $2.68.
The Roosters defeated South Sydney 28-12 on Friday night to record their first victory of the season, and they did plenty to alleviate doubts about their ability to handle the new six-again rule.
Priced at $1.43 with leading NRL bookmaker Unibet, the Roosters have been the subject of some speculation that they may need to tweak their game-plan to combat the COVID-19-impacted rules.
On Friday night the Penrith Panthers have been installed a $1.42 favourite to defeat the New Zealand Warriors ($2.85), after their thrilling 14-14 draw with the Newcastle Knights.
The Melbourne Storm will be desperate to atone for their capitulation at the hands of the Raiders on Saturday, when they clash with the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
The Storm’s odds of $1.44 appear to be short given their error-ridden display against the Raiders, but the Rabbitohs were far from convincing in their thrashing at the hands of the Roosters.
Parramatta Eels ($1.60) restarted their season in fine fashion and will be confident of defeating Manly ($2.30), while North Queensland ($1.53) are the bookies’ favourite against Cronulla ($2.52) in Saturday’s other match.
On Sunday, Canberra Raiders have been installed a $1.35 favourite in the betting to defeat the Newcastle Knights ($3.20), who will feel they still have plenty of improvement despite drawing with Penrith, after errors and injury cost them dearly in the opening half.
In Sunday’s other match of NRL round-4 action, the Gold Coast Titans are outsiders at $2.90 to defeat Wests Tigers ($1.41).
NRL round 4 will finish on Monday with a clash between the Canterbury Bulldogs and St George Illawarra Dragons, with teams priced at $1.90 by leading NRL betting sites.
