Wests Tigers vs Newcastle Knights Preview
The Knights finished last season 4-8 on the road, but they still look massively over the odds here against a Tigers team that is being a little overvalued in the market.
Newcastle shutout the Warriors in style last week at home by dominating possession and also keeping the penalties to a minimum.
Wests were also big winners against the Dragons, but it remains to be seen how they respond to a quiet Leichardt Oval that is usually buzzing with noise at this time of year.
On the injury front, the Tigers were dealt a bit of a blow last week with Luke Brooks ruled out for at least a month due to a calf injury. The return of Moses Mbye, meanwhile, still looks a week or so away.
The Knights made it through Round 1 relatively free from injury, so they do look the value play of the round – especially with a 2-1 record as the away underdog at the line against the Tigers.
Considering you’re getting the same price head-to-head as you are against the spread, it’s worth taking the +1.5 insurance here.
