The Dragons made it back to back wins last weekend as they collected a victory over the Broncos.

St George Illawarra Dragons Preview – Dragons look for three in a row

St George upset the apple cart in round fourteen with a shock win over Premiership contenders Parramatta Eels.

That was the highlight of the season for the Dragons. But then they knuckled down to follow it up with another success last weekend.

They took out the ailing Broncos by a four-point margin and now are on the threshold of three in a row.

Given that the Dragons took a 20-8 win over the Gold Coast Titans earlier this season in June, then they look a sound option to collect the win.

The bookmakers agree with that.

St George Illawarra Dragons are the 1/3 odds-on favourites in the match outright* (odds taken 0600 GMT, Tuesday, 25th August)

They do look at a solid option to get it with a quick glance over the stats.

The recent wins that the Dragons have put on the board have taken them to a W6 L9 record for the campaign.

Across the course of the season, they have averaged 19 points per game. That is far superior to that of the 14 points per game average from the Titans.

Our betting prediction:
Dragons 1-12 winning margin

The Dragons have the advantage in the defensive area as well. There they have conceded an average of 20 points per game.

Gold Coast Titans are averaging 26 points per game during this campaign.

So the home win looks very likely here and the head to head backs it all up as well.


Gold Coast Titans Preview – Titans to fall again?

It is a five-match losing streak that the Gold Coast Titans are currently on against the Dragons.

The lowest margin of defeat in those five fixtures was eight points when they met for the second time last year on the Gold Coast.

The Titans are fourth from bottom with a W4 L11 record behind them this season.

Only the current bottom two, the Broncos and Bulldogs have scored fewer points in this NRL season than the Titans have managed.

The Titans have the second-worst defensive record as well, so they are there for the taking.

It has been back to back league defeats for Gold Coast, losing heavily against the Shark and Raiders in those.
