Final Thoughts:

Game ResultRoosters: high confidence. Not sure how you can go past the high flying Roosters here for a number of reasons. From a personnel standpoint they look to have the Warriors outgunned right across the park, they are playing at a venue where they've only lost once this season (Rabbitohs in Round 1) and are clearly in great form, defeating the Raiders in Canberra just last week. The Warriors were good last week against the Sea Eagles, but it is one thing to get the win on a wet and miserable night in Auckland compared to travelling / playing in Sydney in what is shaping up to be a warm day on a fast track.
With The StartRoosters -13.5: low to medium confidence. Both teams have been good with the start this season. The Warriors have been particularly good away from home, going 7-2 and winning the last seven. While not as impressive the Roosters are still 6-4 at home, having won their last two. While this is a big start it is worth noting that their average winning margin at home is 17.9, and we believe if the Roosters can get out to a lead at halftime (there are 8-1-1 at home in the first half this season), then things could open up in the second half and they will run away with the game.
Game TotalOver 40.5: high confidence. Not quite sure what we are missing, but this line looks a few points under to us. Roosters home games this season are averaging 44.5, while Warriors away games are averaging 42.8. Drill that down to ‘day’ games (Roosters home, Warriors away) and both teams have averaged over 50 points per game, albeit with a minute sample of four and three games respectively. While historically games between these teams have tended under, we don't see that happening here. * Note that Ladbrokes and Topsport are at 40.5 at the time of writing.
For An InterestSam Verrills, any time try scorer.
