Brisbane Broncos vs Wests Tigers Tips - Tigers to cover

Incredibly, the Brisbane Broncos (4-0-12, 10 points) will start favourites in NRL betting this week, but I think that Wests Tigers (5-0-11, 12 points) can have an impact.

Both sides are languishing towards the bottom of the table and neither will make the finals this season, but both have shown glimpses of good footy and there is upside, moving forward.

The Broncos are fresh after the week off and delivered the Sharks a shock defeat the week prior, and that is certainly why they have opened favourites (other than this being a home game).

The Tigers are winless since beating the depleted Panthers in Round 13, and they have unfortunately had some large scores put on them in that time.

Verdict

I think that the Tigers can cover the line as outsiders.
