The stage is set for a pivotal clash in Mackay on Thursday night with plenty on the line for both clubs.

For the Raiders, the top-eight is still very much on the cards if results go their way, while the Roosters are still a serious top four chance if Manly and Parramatta lose.

The recent form of both teams has left a ton of value on offer in the market, especially after the Roosters suffered a humiliating 54-12 loss to the Rabbitohs last week.

Canberra, on the other hand, kept its season alive with an eight-point win over the Warriors, but no one would blame you for feeling a little wary of the Raiders right now.

Back-to-back wins have proven hard to come by recently for Ricky Stuart’s men, while their 44-16 loss to the Tri-Colours earlier in May was a night Raider fans would rather forget.

To make matters more complicated, the injury bug also bit both clubs last week with Joey Manu suffering a broken cheekbone courtesy of Latrell Mitchell, and both Bailey Simonsson and Joseph Tapine coming off early against the Warriors.

As far as betting goes, this is a tough game to pick at a neutral venue, but if there’s been one constant all year, it’s been the Roosters bouncing back from a loss.

Verdict

Trent Robinson’s side has won seven of their last 10 games following a previous defeat, so it’s worth taking the Roosters to win a tight one.
