Roosters vs Dragons NRL betting preview

Who would have thought a month ago that the St George Illawarra Dragons would be playing for three wins in a row?

That’s the good news if you’re a Saints fan. The bad news is you’re coming up against the red-hot Sydney Roosters in Friday night footy.

We have seen enough in the 2020 NRL season to know the result of this one is academic, with top eight versus bottom eight becoming increasingly lopsided.

If you thought the Warriors were a long price in a two-horse race, the Dragons are a whopping $6.50 just for the win – and that’s after coming in from $7 at some NRL betting sites.

What’s more, the line is at a staggering 17.5 points – a head start of three converted tries, if you don’t mind.

A concussion to superstar James Tedesco has him in doubt to take his place for this contest despite being named in the fullback jersey.

Such is Sydney’s depth that the last time Tedesco missed a game, back in round four, they dealt the Broncos a 59-0 thrashing at Suncorp Stadium, so his absence shouldn’t affect anyone’s confidence in the Chooks.

The recent head-to-head record heavily favours the Tricolours, with the Dragons last recording a win in this fixture on ANZAC Day 2018.

Much like the Storm vs Warriors game earlier on Friday evening, it might be best to take the Roosters 13+ option in this one to boost the price to $1.60 with Bet365.

For an even better price of $2.72, you could back both the Storm and the Roosters to win handsomely in a multi.

There are certainties like death, taxes and the Morris twins never ageing, so the $9 for Brett Morris to score first is worth a shout.

He will be marked by either Jason Saab, who is a great young talent, or Mikaele Ravalawa, who can be found wanting when forced to make defensive reads or chase kicks.
