BetsOutcome
Game ResultSharks: medium to high confidence. A big game for the Sharks here as a win will see them leapfrog them Panthers into the top eight. They can be hard to catch sometimes, but their last game at home saw them put in arguably their best performance of the year when they comfortably accounted for the Rabbitohs. They face an opponent who won their first game in six rounds last week, albeit in a performance that saw them leak 28 points to the bottom placed Titans side.
With The StartSharks -7.5 ($1.82 currently with Unibet): low confidence. The Sharks have a solid record with the start at home, while the Dragon's record away from home is underwhelming. They should be motivated here against an opponent with little to play for that conceded 28 to the lowly Titans last week. You never quite know in a local derby game but we lean to the Sharks to cover here.
Game TotalOver 38.5: low to medium confidence. This is another game where the teams are averaging above the game total at home (Sharks 43.9) and away (Dragons 42.4) respectively. Further to that point both teams have trended to the over this season with the Sharks going 12-8 (6-3 at home) and the Dragons 11-9 (6-4) away.
