The Wests Tigers have slipped to a three match losing streak as their season has turned a little sour.

They were hammered out of sight by the Knights last weekend and really need a bounce-back performance.

As for the Bulldogs, it has been a tough season all-round with only the two wins on the board for the campaign.

The Bulldogs are currently propping up the NRL ladder.

Wests Tigers Preview – Wests with a chance to snap losing streak

Wests Tigers had a rough time of things last weekend, suffering a 4-44 loss against the Newcastle Knights.

That was their third loss on the bounce after having gone down against the Eels and Warriors.

It’s four losses in their last five games now and it is a W5 L8 record for the season for them.

One positive for the Wests Tigers is that they are the top scoring side down in the bottom half of the table.

The Wests Tigers have scored an average of 21 points per season, but that’s the same average number at which they have conceded.

Our betting prediction:
Wests Tigers 6-10 Winning Margin

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 02:21 GMT Tuesday, 11th August)


The Wests Tigers have already met the Bulldogs this season as they clashed on June 28th.

It was a 34-6 victory that Wests took in the game, so they will be able to carry that positive forward.

This is being played at the Bankwest Stadium, Sydney and Wests Tigers have won 8 of 24 games there since 1998.


Canterbury Bulldogs Preview – Bulldogs still lacking a bite

The Canterbury Bulldogs are at the bottom of the table with only two wins on the board.

They have only put 160 points on the board in their matches this season which is the lowest tally of all teams.

They don’t have the worst defensive record however, they have the best record in that department among the bottom four teams.

The average losing margin that the Bulldogs have taken this season is 16 points.

The bookmakers have a Bulldogs +6 handicap for this one at even money odds* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 02:08 GMT on Tuesday, 11th August 2020) which seems a little risky.

Canterbury Bulldogs are only averaging 12 points per game this season which is almost twice as few as the average of the West Tigers.

Two of the Bulldogs’ last three losses have been by a margin of no more than six points.

But their defence was shattered last weekend as the Melbourne Storm powered to a 41-10 over them.

Only in two of their games in this campaign have the Bulldogs reached the 20-point tally in fixtures.

Both times it happened was against the St George Illawarra Dragons.
