The absence of Luke Brooks and Api Koroisau due to injuries has left the Tigers lacking ideas in their attacking plays, resulting in a meagre total of 18 points scored over the past two weeks.
On the other hand, the North Queensland Cowboys have been on a rampage, dismantling the Storm with a commanding 45-20 victory and overpowering the Rabbitohs with a dominant 31-6 performance. They have also displayed their resilience by clinching a golden point victory over the Panthers, despite missing their State of Origin stars. Surprisingly, the Cowboys find themselves just two wins away from securing a spot in the top four. With a bye and a game against the Sea Eagles scheduled in Round 20, they have a favourable opportunity to accumulate six more points over the next three weeks.
The Cowboys had a disastrous start to the season, reaching their lowest point when they suffered a humiliating 66-18 defeat against the Tigers last month, marking their most lopsided loss during the Todd Payten era. However, the team has impressively rebounded from that setback, recording victories over formidable opponents such as the Storm, Panthers, and Rabbitohs – all considered strong contenders for the premiership.
📋 Players to watch:
- Jeremiah Nanai has showcased his try-scoring prowess by finding the try line in each of his last five games against teams positioned in the bottom four. This consistent performance highlights his ability to capitalize on the weaknesses of such opponents.
- Starford To'a has been in excellent form, scoring four tries in his previous four encounters against the Cowboys. His impressive scoring record against this particular team demonstrates his effectiveness and impact during these matchups.
- Valentine Holmes has proven to be a potent attacking threat when facing the Tigers, having scored seven tries in 10 games against them. This statistic showcases his ability to consistently find the try-scoring opportunities and make a significant impact against this opponent.
⚡ Match Facts:
- In their most recent three victories, the North Queensland Cowboys have demonstrated their offensive prowess by scoring a total of 103 points. Furthermore, they have emerged victorious in their last three encounters against the Storm, Panthers, and Rabbitohs, showcasing their ability to triumph over formidable opponents.
- On the other hand, the Wests Tigers have suffered setbacks in their previous three games, unable to secure a win during that period.
- The North Queensland Cowboys have proven to be a formidable force on their home turf, winning six out of their eight games played at home this season. Their strong performances in front of their home crowd have contributed significantly to their overall success.
- In recent wins against the Storm and Rabbitohs, the Cowboys have not only emerged victorious but have also exceeded expectations by covering the -16.5 line. This further emphasizes their dominance and ability to surpass the predicted margins of victory.
💡 Match Prediction:
The upcoming clash between the Cowboys and Wests Tigers is accompanied by a prediction that heavily favours the Cowboys, with an 81.1% probability of winning compared to the Wests Tigers' 18.9% chance. Based on this assessment, the fair odds for the match are calculated to be Cowboys $1.23 and Wests Tigers $5.28.
