The Sydney Roosters and Gold Coast Titans travel north to Mackay for Saturday’s NRL clash at BB Print Stadium with both clubs looking to snap losing streaks. The Titans have lost four on the bounce and they have even played the Wests Tigers into form this season.

Life will get no easier for the Titans on Saturday as they have lost David Fifita to injury. For the Roosters, Daniel Tupou and Paul Momirovski return to reinforce their backline. The last two clashes between these sides have been decided by a single point, could it possibly be three matches with the same outcome?

Betting for this match has been incredibly interesting, as the Roosters opened $1.15 favourites and have drifted out to $1.32 in head-to-head markets. That has seen the Titans shorten from as long as $5.20 into $3.45 with some online bookmakers. Of only 22 clashes between these clubs, Easts have won 14 of them.

The Roosters are still one of the best sides in the NRL on paper, while the Titans are struggling to field their best side due to injury. Easts not only remain favourite to win, but by a 13+ margin, paying $2.30 at BetOnline.

In their clash with the Bulldogs last week, Joseph Manu was marked and bested by a rookie, Aaron Schoupp. Manu is one of the best outside backs in the NRL and will not allow that to happen two weeks in a row. Look for Manu to proactive in getting his hands on the ball, as well as getting the ball on his left-hand edge with time and space. Manu is great value as an anytime tryscorer at $2.15. On his outside is Joseph Suaalii, who is a young gun on the rise and should find the try line as well at $1.87.

The weather in Mackay is predicted to be less than ideal for scoring points. Further to that, both teams have had their struggles scoring in recent weeks. Both factors play heavily into the total points market for this match. With the points line set at 42.5, expect this match to fall short of that total.

Key matchup: Sam Verrills vs Erin Clark

Both hookers on Saturday evening will have the important job of bringing their forwards onto the ball as best they can to win the middle third of the field battle. Another aspect that will be key in this match is their running game. Whichever hooker does the better job of juggling their passing game with their running game will be a pivotal factor in the forward packs winning the battle of the middle to set up their side for a victory.
