Best Rugby Odds for this Week: NRL Takes Centre Stage This Weekend

All eyes were on the Six Nations last weekend, with the Northern Hemisphere rugby union tournament seeing plenty of action unfold. Ireland extended their lead and have one hand on the trophy now with two games to go, while Scotland and France fought out a tight encounter in Paris.


Weekly Rundown of Rugby Games | NRL Takes Centre Stage This Weekend

Six Nations rugby will take a breather this weekend ahead of Round Four in a fortnight’s time, however, another fantastic competition is about to kick off in the league’s sister code: The NRL.

The world’s largest rugby league competition will get underway this Wednesday EST, with the first of 27 rounds playing out. We break down all of the best bets to take on the opening weekend, and check out the latest rugby odds.


NRL Week One (2-5 March)

With such a feast of rugby league action coming up, here are the best matches we suggest wagering on.

Round one of the NRL will see rugby league action return to the Southern Hemisphere after five months off. Here are the matchups that will take place over the next few days:

  • Eels vs Storm (2 March)

  • Warriors vs Knights (3 March)

  • Panthers vs Broncos (3 March)

  • Sea Eagles vs Bulldogs (3 March)

  • Cowboys vs Raiders (4 March)

  • Sharks vs Rabbitohs (4 March)

  • Dolphins vs Roosters (5 March)

  • West Tigers vs Titans (5 March)


Eels vs. Storm

Last season, the Eels and Storm finished fourth and fifth, respectively on the ladder. Opening their 2023 seasons against each other should make for a fantastic clash. To date, the Eels have gone 1-1 in their pre-season, losing to the Panthers and beating the Knights, while the Storm are also 1-1, beating the Warriors and losing to the Roosters.

With their last match ending 22-14 to the Eels, and the one before that 28-24 to the same, the best wager feels like one on the Eels again here. They’re the slight underdog in the betting odds at +109 to -151, making this a healthy bet too.

Dolphins vs. Roosters

Our next match to bet on is an exciting one, with the Dolphins making their NRL debut. The Brisbane-based side will host the Roosters in their opening match, and will be eager to start on a strong note.

The Dolphins have had a mixed pre-season, drawing 22 all with the Cowboys before losing most recently to the Titans 40-16. The Roosters have been slightly better, winning against the Storm 32-23 before losing to the Sea Eagles 28-16.

With the Dolphins new to the competition, and the Roosters finishing sixth last year, this result should favor the visitors. However, the Dolphins will be focused in on getting a win, and have some strong signings already this year. An upset at odds of +553 is not entirely off the cards, but with the Roosters paying -1428 to win, is looking pretty unlikely.
