Canberra Raiders vs Canterbury Bulldogs Preview
The Raiders could potentially leapfrog the Roosters into the top four this week if things somehow go their way.
Canberra faces Sydney next week in a blockbuster at GIO Stadium, which makes this week’s game against the Dogs all the more important if the Raiders wish to maintain touch with the top of the ladder.
The Green Machine is currently firing on all cylinders after putting up 36 points in each of their last two games against the Broncos and Titans.
Obviously, the Bulldogs are of similar calibre to the two struggling Queensland clubs, and it would be no surprise to watch the Raiders pile on 30 points again on Sunday.
Canberra has no injury news to report, while the Dogs will play their last game this week without the suspended Dylan Napa.
The Raiders have won three straight over the Bulldogs dating back to 2018 and have also been the fifth-best side at the line this year going 8-6-1.
Canterbury hasn’t won in Canberra since 2015, but it is worth noting the Dogs have lost three of their last four games by no more than a try.
After keeping it very tight with the Tigers and Warriors over the last fortnight, the +17.5 line looks a little too generous here.
