Cowboys vs Broncos tryscorer betting tips

Kyle Feldt – While a few of the Cowboys backs are in decent tryscoring form, this man is the most reliable of the lot. Feldt has notched seven tries in a truncated campaign and looks decent value at $2 with Sportsbet to find the line at any time.

Corey Oates – With 13 tries for the season, Oates is not the one to blame for the Broncos’ woes this year. The big winger is the $7 favourite for first tryscorer at Ladbrokes and is a good chance to deliver if the Brisbane halves get on top early.

Cowboys vs Broncos NRL Round 21 predictions

The Cowboys have nothing to lose, but they look low on confidence and may already have an eye on next season. The Broncos undid four weeks of solid form with their collapse to the Storm, so Seibold and his staff will want to see a big response in Townsville.
