NRL Tips – Round 6, 2017

I am very skeptical that anything good can come of tipping from the ELO models and my record this year is testament to that. Before I get into it, I’d like to reiterate that I am no expert. Plainly.


Eratos is, contrary to all common sense, showing the way forward this year. I, on the other hand, am less accurate than a coin toss, the lowest possible bar that I will manage hurdle over eventually.

Looks like a pretty straightforward round with plenty of consensus from the collection of idiots with tipping rates below 50%. The only split round is Newcastle vs Canterbury with the home ground advantage tipping it in the Knights’ favour for Euclid and Archimedes. Me, the more reliable Eratosthenes and I think everyone else knows better.
