Titans vs NQ Cowboys
The Titans host the Cowboys in this round 22 encounter in the NRL. This game will be challenging for the home team because the away team is on a great run, and they sit above them on the log. Apart from that, the Cowboys won the last three meeting between the sides, and their performance since the league started has been impressive.
The Cowboys have won a league-best six matches on the bounce, leaving them just two points behind the third-placed Warriors with a bye still up their sleeve. The home team will be all out to avoid a fourth straight loss to the visitors.
TIP: In a big blow for the Cowboys Jeremiah Nanai will miss 4-6 weeks after suffering an AC joint injury. Kulikefu Finefeuiaki will start in his place this week and the young tearaway has shown much promise to be an able replacement. The Titans will be relying on their home grown stars, with Boyd, Brimson, and Verrill showing some better form in the last month. The bookies have the Cowboys as favourites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.40, Gbets 1.42 and Hollywoodbets 1.42

Latest results for both teams
The Titans lost 36-18 to the Sydney Roosters in their last match while the Cowboys beat the Eels 24-16 in their last match.
The Titans were stunned last week by the Roosters, leaking five tries in the first half alone. Finals rugby is looking increasingly out of reach for the Titans this season, whilst the Cowboys still have plenty to fight for as they push for position in the top eight. Coach Todd Payten’s side are also riding a six-game win streak, scoring at least 24 points in five of those matches. The Cowboys defence has been the foundation of this winning streak, allowing an average of just 7.5 points over the past four wins. A porous Titan’s defence and in-form Cowboys side should mean we see plenty of points in this match. I am predicting a Cowboys win by more than 10 points.
