With the NRL tipping is it hard? NRL shifting its focus away from certain states and venues, and tipping is becoming more challenging. Standard factors like a home-ground advantage, crowd support, player motivation, and even starting 17’s have all become more volatile than ever before, leaving tipsters with no choice but to rely on luck – which may not always be advantageous for their pocketbooks.

NRL Betting Previews and Expert Tips
With so many NRL games, it can be difficult to pick a winner each week. That is why we’ve joined forces with some of the top NRL betting tipsters in the business to bring you up-to-date NRL betting previews and expert picks so you can make informed wagers.
The Grand Final: Get Prepared For A Low-Scoring Decider
With the Grand Final rapidly approaching, it’s time to begin getting ready for this year’s biggest competition. There is much anticipation surrounding this year’s decider but it could be one of the lowest-scoring matches in recent memory. With everything on the line, get ready to celebrate!
Since 2001, only three deciders have scored more than 46 points and eight of the last nine have fallen under the total. It’s no secret that NRL’s best teams don’t usually end up winning them; so we expect a low-scoring contest with plenty of value in the Half Time/Full Time market.
The Cowboys are in desperate need of a victory and while they were good enough to beat the Tigers last Saturday night, we’re backing the Dragons to take it away on Saturday night. In their last four matches, they’ve scored an impressive 68 points while only one win in seven has come from them in seven attempts; thus, it will take all of their best effort for them to overcome this defensive-minded outfit on Saturday night.
Penrith vs Sydney: A Covering Affair
The Panthers are heavy favorites at home and will be looking to maintain their impressive form against a weaker Sydney side. This could be another close game, but I don’t believe it’ll end at the same score as last week against the Rabbitohs; with some luck on their side, we could see Penrith come out on top.
Penrith has covered in 19 of their last 23 games when favored by more than a converted try, while Sydney Roosters are just 47% winning at home and Tigers 78% losing away from home.
Grand Finals: A Draw Can Happen
There is often value in the opening half of the Grand Finals, and this one has a particularly strong record. Out of the last 12 grand finals, nine went into halftime at 12-all.
Both teams are still at the top of the table and have momentum on their side, making this a highly-charged contest. While the Titans have struggled at home this season, the Broncos are in an advantageous position and should come out on top here.
