Dragons vs Raiders NRL betting preview

This is a fixture the Canberra Raiders have dominated for many years, and it looks as though that will be the case once more on Saturday afternoon.

The Raiders will start as $1.45 favourites despite travelling to Wollongong, while the Dragons will go into the contest as the outsiders at $3.10.

A big inclusion for the St George Illawarra Dragons is Paul Vaughan, who will push Josh Kerr back to the interchange and help stiffen up the middle.

Another name that jumps off the team list for the Saints is Cody Ramsey on the wing to make his NRL debut.

Ramsey lit up the Perth Nines and fans have waited for him to get a chance ever since, so you can guarantee there will be plenty of support for the youngster at $14 to score the first try of the match.

While he is in jersey no.21 for the Raiders, Iosia Soliola is looking close to a return before the 2020 NRL Finals begin, which will make the likes of Hudson Young rise to another level as the competition for spots heats up.

Canberra can all but guarantee a home final with a win this weekend, and taking them at $2.55 for a 13+ win makes a ton of sense.

The Raiders’ last three victories were by margins of 28, 20 and 14 points, all against bottom-eight opponents, and the Dragons are right in that wheelhouse.

We think Ramsey will be half a chance to cross first for the Saints, but Jordan Rapana at $14 is the value pick in the back line for the Raiders.

George Williams managed to cross the line when these teams met in round eight, and he offers good value at $29 for the opener and $4.33 to score at any time.
