2015 NRL Round 7 feature game betting, Rabbitohs vs. Raiders

Round 7, Sunday 26th April, 2015, 4pm EST, at Barlow Park, Cairns, Queensland.

TV: Channel Nine, Fox Sports

Weather: Sunny, 32 Degrees.

THE Raiders lead the historical contests between these sides, having won 28 of 49 encounters.

Last time these two teams met was in round 20, 2014, where the Rabbitoh’s dominated the Raiders in a spectacular 20-point victory.

Despite coming into this match on the back of two-straight losses, punters have hammered South Sydney all week, making them red-hot favourites at $2.70 with CrownBet.com.au

On the back of an outstanding comeback victory from 22-0 down against the Wests Tigers last weekend, Canberra are great value at $3.30 for anyone optimistic of another Raiders upset on Sunday afternoon.

Rabbitohs vs. Raiders odds

South Sydney (1-12) $3.15
South Sydney (13+) $2.30

Canberra Raiders (1-12) $4.75 at sportsbet.com.au
Canberra (13+) $10.00

Sportsbet.com.au are offering over the odds for Canberra to defeat South’s by 1 to 12 points at $4.75 and if the Raiders can carry their form from last week into this match, punters could easily recoup their losses from Anzac Day two-up.

With Michael McGuire’s men at ridiculously skinny-odds in the head-to-head market, punters would be clever to play with the margin markets, as both the 1-12 at $3.15 and 13+ at $2.30 will give punters are much healthier return.

First try scorer markets

There is plenty of value across the board for first try scorers in this match-up, with South’s devastating fullback Greg Inglis at juicy odds of $9.50 with Sportsbet.com.au.

Exciting winger Alex Johnson is the only other player under double figures, paying $7.50. Edrick Lee is the most-preferred Raiders player to cross the try-line first at $14.00 with crownbet.com.au.

Other favourable players at crownbet.com.au include:
Joel Reddy (Souths) $10.00
Dylan Walker (Souths) $11.00
Bryson Goodwin (Souths) $13.00
Jarrod Croker (Raiders) $15.00
Jordan Rapana (Raiders) $15.00

Match summary from a betting perspective

South Sydney look certain to bounce back in this match-up, however, halfback Adam Reynolds is such an integral mark of their structure and will be sorely missed once again.

Canberra have good momentum after winning its past two matches and both will be desperate for the win, having won just two from its past five games.

Punters are expecting the Rabbitohs’ to lead from the get go, with the Souths half time and full time double just $1.67 with Sportsbet.com.au. Those who believe another Canberra comeback will be on the cards, can secure an enticing $11.00 for the Souths/Canberra double, however the best value certainly lies with a Canberra/Souths double, paying desirable odds of $7.00.

This match can certainly go down to the wire if the Raiders can handle the unfavourable conditions in Cairns. Betting certainly doesn’t reflect the closeness of these two teams, particularly with Souths missing many key players and green machine faithful can access a multitude of betting options to enjoy a healthy dividend return.
