Manly Sea Eagles – $2.10 at Sportsbet
Canberra Raiders – $1.70
Don’t look now Raiders fans but there’s a chance the Green Machine could sit atop the NRL ladder if they can deliver a win on Saturday.
Canberra has been electric to start the season, winning five of their opening six games including last week’s gritty win over the Brisbane Broncos in the nation’s capital.
that win comes off the back of a powerful 19 point win over the Parramatta Eels, who they kept scoreless for the entirety of the match.
It was the second time the Raiders have kept a team scoreless in 2019.
The Manly Sea Eagles still sit inside the top eight but will be desperately looking to get back on the winner’s sheet following last week’s loss to the Dragons.
The Sea Eagles lost in extra time, leaving them with a record of 3-3 heading into round 7. Despite the disappointment of the loss Manly will take plenty from the game given they pushed one of the best teams in the competition right down to the wire.
It is all to play for at Lottoland this Saturday.

Jordan Rapana hasn’t been as prolific as he has in other years for the Raiders, with just two tries to his name so far in 2019.
But we’re anticipating a huge outing from the star Kiwi.
In a game that will solidify their position inside the top 4 a huge match from the fullback could prove pivotal, and we’re backing him in to deliver a mammoth game against the Sea Eagles.
Key stats and betting trends
- Jordan Rapana has scored at least one try in each of Canberra’s last eight matches as an away favourite following a win
- Daly Cherry-Evans has scored a try in five of Manly’s last six matches against Canberra
- Nick Cotric has been the first try-scorer in each of Canberra’s last two day matches
- Canberra has lost the first half in each of its last seven Round 7 matches
Manly vs Canberra betting predictions
The Raiders fans have been here before but the false dawn might actually be the true sunrise on a new day.
The Green Machine has been stellar this season, based on the back of brilliant defensive efforts. The Raiders have conceded the fewest points so far in 2019, keeping two teams scoreless already across the opening six rounds.
Manly’s struggles so far in 2019 have been on the scoring end.
The Sea Eagles have the least points accrued this campaign, which makes their task of overcoming stingiest of defenses all the more onerous.
It all points towards another strong showing from the men in green, who should be able to get over the Sea Eagles in the land of lotto.
