The Sydney Roosters will start round seven of this season’s Premiership in 4th place in the table. They are the top-scorers this term and have some hot momentum going.

As for the Dragons, they have started to turn their season around with back to back wins. This is going to be a really tough task for them to keep their streak going, however.

Roosters are flying at the moment

The Sydney Roosters came up big last weekend. They pounded out a 24-10 win over the ladder-leading Eels.

In doing so the Roosters became the first side to topple Parramatta in this campaign.

So that will have done absolute wonders for their confidence.

It is a four match winning streak that the Roosters are currently on. Their tally of 175 points in matches is the highest in the ladder.

This winning streak has been built against the Rabbitohs, Broncos, Bulldogs and then the Eels

It has been such impressive scoring from them, not having fallen short of 24 points in any of the victories in that streak of form.

The Roosters smashed the Broncos 59-0 and then the Bulldogs 42-6 in back to back games in the sequence.

What is equally impressive is that the Roosters have been on the front foot so much, that they are only averaging 9 points per game against them this season.

Our betting prediction:
Roosters 13-18 winning margin

(odds taken 04:21 GMT, Wednesday 24th June)

The Roosters have conceded in total, 57 points only across this campaign in matches. Their average margin of victory is a whopping 31 points.

Given that they are taking on relatively weak opposition in this one, another big haul of points will be expected from the Roosters.

A Roosters -18 handicap is at a quote of 11/10* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 05:30 GMT on Wednesday, 24th June 2020).

The Sydney Roosters won both league meetings with the Dragons last season, by a 22-point and a 10-point margin.

It could be another comfortable victory that they rack up against them.


Can the Dragons pull of a shock upset?

Back to back wins for the season has lifted the Dragons onto a W2 L4 record for the campaign.

Those wins were crucial ones against the Sharks and the Titans, who are both down in the bottom six with them.

What the Dragons will be most pleased about is their upward swing in scoring, having tallied 50 across their last two matches.

That’s more than they managed in their first four combined.

St George Illawara have a poor history at the Bankwest Stadium, Sydney. From 16 visits there since 1998 they have secured just three victories at the venue.

Because they are underdogs for this contest, it is worth having a look at their average losing margin.

That is currently at 13 points for the season, something to bear in mind for the handicaps.

St George have not been within 10 points of the Sydney Roosters in any of their last three games against them.

With a really poor head to head going against the Roosters as well, we can only see this meeting going one way.

The recent wins that the Dragons have taken should rightly give them confidence. But they were against teams of nowhere near the level at which the Roosters are playing at the moment.
