Consistency has been a problem for both of these teams this season in the NRL.

The Bulldogs finished round 6 of the campaign second from bottom of the ladder and they are staring at a potential three-match losing streak.

The Wests Tigers gave themselves a bit of a boost last weekend however as they took a good win over the Cowboys. Will they be able to build on that and take down the Bulldogs?

Canterbury Bulldogs Preview – Bulldogs lacking any serious bite

It has been back to back losses for Canterbury after narrowly missing out against the Sharks last weekend.

The Bulldogs lost 18-20 in that match which will have been mighty frustrating against another struggling side.

It is only a W1 L5 record that they have managed this season in the Premiership. Only bottom side the Titans have produced fewer points than the Bulldogs have done.

It has only been a tally of 70 points that they have scored in total across their six games played.

They are currently on a -58 points difference for the campaign and only three other teams are worse off in that stat.

The average margin of defeat for the Bulldogs this season is 15.6. Their one victory happened by a margin of 20points.

They look as if they are going to have a tough time matching the Tigers in the scoring department.

Our betting prediction:
Wests 1-12 Winning Margin

(odds taken 22:49 GMT Thursday 25th June)


The Bulldogs are averaging 11 points per game, while the Tigers who are averaging 23 points per game. The Bulldogs have a 50% success rate at the Bankwest Stadium.

The one thing that they do have going for them is a big head to head record against the Tigers. At least recently. Canberra have won seven of their last eight against Wests.


Wests Tigers Preview – Can Wests Tigers tame the Bulldogs?

The Wests Tigers avoided falling to a three match losing streak last weekend as they came up with a 36-20 win over the Cowboys. That was a really good response from them.

It was a well deserved victory and they looked a lot more convincing than when they lost in round four against bottom side the Titans.

Last weekends’ win takes the Tigers on to a W2 L4 record for the season.

The thing about the Tigers is that they have been a lot more consistent in putting points on the scoreboard than the Bulldogs have done.

The Wests Tigers have more than double the amount of points that the Bulldogs have scored in a match this season. That is a huge factor from a betting perspective for sure.

The main handicap market for this fixture is a little interesting. The Wests Tigers -6 option is at 11/10* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 03:47 GMT on Friday, 26th June 2020).

Given the positive scoring that they have produced this season, the Tigers look good value to cover that. They should have the upper hand at the current moment over their opponents.

The grey area will be the lack of wins in the head to head of course.

So is there enough to overlook that? On current form, yes.

That was a big, positive haul of 36 points last weekend from them.

But on the current standing there is a good chance that Wests can get a rare win on the board against the Bulldogs.

They are just ticking the scoreboard over a lot more frequently than the Bulldogs are.
