Sometimes the obvious answer is the best answer. It is in the final match of Round 18. Souths look entitled to win this by plenty. It would be a surprise if they didn’t.
Souths are favoured by 25.5 points at writing but it could get notably higher if all four of the Rabbitohs’ Origin players do indeed backup. This could be Manly 2.0 for the Bulldogs, who struggle to contain true attacking powers. How they stop the likes of Latrell Mitchell, Cody Walker and Alex Johnston seems an impossibility and Trent Barrett seems unlikely to be able to figure it out.
The Bunnies have won 12 of 18 against the Bulldogs including a 38-0 win earlier this season that should have been significantly more.
Souths hold form off big wins, covering 9 of 13 off a double digit win and going 18-13 against the spread off scoring 30-plus. The Bulldogs are a poor 2-5 against the spread getting a start of more than 18.
The Rabbitohs blanked the Bulldogs 38-0 in their Round 4 meeting in Sydney last April.
