Souths vs Sydney NRL Round 25 odds

Sydney Roosters – $1.58

The 2019 NRL season has come full circle for two old rivals who met in the opening week.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs triumphed on that occasion at the SCG, kicking off a run of 10 wins in their first 11 games.

While their form has been streaky since mid-year, one more win – or even a respectable defeat – will guarantee the Bunnies a double chance in the finals.

If there were any doubts about the Sydney Roosters and the state of their premiership defence, seven consecutive wins have put them to bed.

The Chooks have blitzed the competition in the run home, although it is worth noting they have played only one team in the current top eight – Canberra Raiders – in that winning stretch.

It looks like Sydney will face either the Raiders or the Rabbitohs in the first week of the NRL finals, so Thursday’s clash at ANZ Stadium will serve as excellent preparation regardless of the outcome.

It might sound odd, but the Roosters could do with a loss. They have beaten up lower-half teams over the past two months and need a proper workout on the eve of the finals. Souths look dangerous with Johnston back on the wing and might just do the double over their arch-nemeses.
