TAB Betting Blog: Take Tedesco for a try as Roosters face Tigers


Sunday afternoon, Campbelltown Sports Stadium

The Sydney Roosters look the bet of the round as they take on a side they love to face this Sunday afternoon.

Unfortunately for punters you aren't going to get a price for the Roosters, but what do you expect? They have completed dominated Wests Tigers in recent years, losing just twice against them since 2010. That is 18 wins in their past 20 clashes!

No, they aren't value at the $1.27 but the Roosters have to be a 'lock' for your multis this weekend despite missing several stars including Boyd Cordner and Jake Friend.

Trent Robinson's side were the most impressive winners in Round 1, smashing Manly by 42 points with hat-tricks to James Tedesco and Brett Morris.

The play here is definitely in the Margin and Tryscorer markets.

I think the 1-12 option is the way to go here especially with heavy conditions expected for Sunday's game.

Surprisingly, Tedesco has never scored against his former club in three matches but I think that will change this weekend. He is $1.90 to bag a four-pointer while Morris has 15 tries in 20 matches against the merged entity and is $1.85 to cross the line at anytime.

So when it's all said and done, I will be taking a Same Game Multi with the Roosters to Win, 1-12 margin into Tedesco to Score.

TIP: Roosters / 1-12 Margin / Tedesco to Score at Anytime (Same Game Multi) @ $5
