The Sydney Roosters got back to winning ways last weekend as they powered their way past the Cowboys.

So they are still in hot form currently with four wins in their last five played.

The Raiders took a hit last weekend as they fell to the Melbourne Storm. They are just struggling to put things together at the moment.

Sydney Roosters Preview – The Roosters are rolling on

After a blip in such a dramatic game against the Melbourne Storm in Round 8, the Roosters got back to winning ways last weekend.

They powered their way to a 42-16 success over the Cowboys.

That left the Sydney Roosters in fourth place in the table with a W6 L3 record on the board.

They remain the highest scorers in this season’s Premiership by a fair distance.

Kyle Flanagan is the points-leader in the NRL currently with 102 individual points having been recorded.

With the Roosters having claimed three wins over the Raiders last season, and with current form, they are naturally favourites here.

The average winning margin by the Roosters is a highly impressive 27.5 this season.

Over in the handicap market for Sydney Roosters v Canberra Raiders betting, a Roosters -10 is at 10/11* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 22:24 GMT on Tuesday, 14th July 2020).

Only the Parramatta Eels, who are at the top of the ladder, have conceded fewer points than the Roosters as well.

Our betting prediction:
Roosters winning Margin 1-12

(odds taken 07:38 GMT Tuesday 13th July)


At the Sydney Cricket Ground, where this is being played, the Roosters have won 11 of 14 played there since 1998.

The Raiders in contrast, will be playing their first ever game there.

Will this be another show of power from the Roosters as they face up to a side who have just lost their way a little?


Canberra Raiders Preview – Raiders need a boost

A narrow defeat at the hands of the Melbourne Storm in round 9 saw the Raiders misfire again.

It was a 14-20 loss that they suffered in that one, leaving them with three defeats in their last four games.

They have been competitive and tend to lean towards the defensive side of things.

But the wins haven’t been coming and it is getting increasingly telling that they are the lowest-scoring side in the current top nine.

Just twice in their last five fixtures now have they managed to get at least 20 points on the board in a game.

The Raiders are averaging 18 points per game this season, which is well behind the average of 29 that the Roosters have.

The last time that the Canberra Raiders met the Roosters was in the Grand Final. The Raiders lost.

It is worth reminding for Sydney Roosters v Canberra Raiders betting, that the Raiders have been hit with injuries. That’s not helping their cause at the moment.

Their three losses last season against the Roosters were 30-24, 22-18 and then in that Grand Final 14-8.

What we can take away from that is potentially the Raiders can keep things tight.

The average margin of defeat for Canberra this season is only 7.8 points.

The +10 in the handicap for the Raiders is at 11/10* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 22:24 GMT on Tuesday, 14th July 2020) as they take on the top-scoring side.


Sydney Roosters vs Canberra Raiders Betting Advice

The Roosters were made to work early on by the Cowboys last weekend.

However then they produced a half hour period where they were just unstoppable to run away with the win.

They get the boost of having back Brett Morris into the line up after missing him last weekend, and he’s been one of the stars of their campaign.
