Round 13 concludes with the Roosters up against the Tigers at Allianz Stadium. Both sides have a 7-5 record and sit just inside the top eight. So this is a key 2 points for each side. In terms of lineups, the Roosters have a number of key players out. Which includes: Tedesco, Mitchell, Cordner and Napa. But they’ll still have an unchanged lineup in the halves with Cooper Cronk the key against Brooks and Benji. The Tigers don’t send a player to Origin which will help them in their attempt to beat them once again. They caused a massive boil-over in a Round 1 10-8 victory over Sydney. Last round, the Roosters did finally show some good signs in an attacking second half against the Titans. However, the Tigers D will be a challenge and they can start slowing in first halves. So the Tigers should be able to contain the Roosters with their strong defence. Also at this venue, the Roosters are scoring just 12.5 points per game in 2018 and have a 1-3 record. So I do like the unders again, especially after a 10-8 scoreline in the last meeting. The Tigers are ranked 4th last in the NRL for points scored and haven’t scored over 20 points in their last 4 games. Also, both sides rank inside the top 3 for points allowed.
