The Canberra Raiders may have won their last four clashes against the Titans on the Gold Coast, but they’ll face a different beast at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Easter Saturday in round four of the 2021 NRL season. The Titans have won seven of their last eight games dating back to last season, and they are fresh off an enormous 44-8 result that marks the second-biggest win in the club’s 15-year history.

The Raiders could be susceptible to heavy legs after playing 68 minutes against the Warriors with just one substitute. However, it looks like they will only be missing one regular in the back half; Curtis Scott is out with sore ribs, although his replacement, Sebastian Kris, must satisfy concussion protocols.

As with the Sharks vs Cowboys game, this fixture had to be moved due to the COVID situation in South East Queensland. That has already had a significant affect on the match odds, with the Titans blowing out from $2.25 to $2.45 at Sportsbet.com.au.


Key matchup: Jamal Fogarty vs George Williams

Two of the more understated halfbacks in the competition are Jamal Fogarty and George Williams. Both have been terrific in the opening rounds of the season, and the result will come down to who better controls the contest for their team. Williams’ short kicking has been a feature of his game since coming out from England, and he will need to build pressure and play with patience in the red zone in order to crack the improving Gold Coast Titans. Fogarty will take on more responsibility with no Ash Taylor, and he will simply have to do the same at the other end of the field if the Titans are to have any chance of winning this game and cementing themselves as a legitimate contender.


Gold Coast Titans betting info

This is the first time since their run to the qualifying final in 2010 that the Titans have won seven of their last eight games, so there is cause for optimism in 2021. David Fifita has been a wrecking ball in the last fortnight, and punters should gobble up his $21 first tryscorer odds at Neds.com.au. Fifita’s battle with Hudson Young and George Williams should be a ripper, but we like Gold Coast forward’s footwork to get him across the stripe. Anthony Don and Phil Sami are our best picks for anytime tryscorers. We also liked the +4 line the online bookmakers were giving the Titans, but the move to Kogarah has changed things up a bit.

Canberra Raiders betting info

The positive news for the Raiders is that only Curtis Scott wasn’t named to take his place due to a rib injury, leaving them at almost full strength. If Sebastian Kris comes in at right centre as expected, the $3.20 for him to score at any time will be a great value pick. Ryan James is fifth on the all-time appearances list for the Titans and was a renowned try sneak in his time there, so the $4.33 about him to cross at some stage is another one you might like to look at. You can bet James will want to put in a big performance against his old club.
