Roosters vs Knights NRL betting preview

Much like the Panthers vs Eels clash on Friday night, this one is also worthy of main event status.

Sadly for NRL fans, Kalyn Ponga has been given a week off to rest some bumps and bruises now the Newcastle Knights have a finals place locked up, but there is still a ton to be excited about.

Even with Ponga out, the $8.25 in the head-to-head market for Newcastle is an absurd price for a clash between fourth and sixth on the NRL ladder.

It’s also worth remembering this fact: the Knights are undefeated in Sydney in 2020.

While many expect that to change this weekend, there is enough reason to take Newcastle at the +19.5 line.

That kind of line is reserved for top four against wooden spoon contenders, and this is not one of those matches.

Mitch Barnett and Hymel Hunt are also resting this weekend, but the Novocastrians are boosted by the big inclusions of Daniel Saifiti and Edrick Lee.

The Sydney Roosters are as healthy as they’ve been in 2020 and looked at their defensive best against Canberra, only conceding six points.

Without Ponga the Knights will struggle to score, but their defence is only leaking 16.3 points per game, so taking the under 46.5 match total seems wise.

Four Roosters players are in single figures to score the first try, and you can make a case for all of them, but Daniel Tupou is the pick due to his clear height advantage over rookie winger Starford To’a.

Knights fans have been screaming out to see more of Tex Hoy, and this week they get their wish as he replaces his great mate Ponga in the fullback jersey.

Hoy is $23 to score first, and call us crazy, but we think it’s worth a few bob.
