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.
Sydney (4-1) @ Brisbane (2-3)
Canterbury (2-3) @ Newcastle (1-4)
South Sydney (2-3) @ Penrith (2-3)
St George Illawarra (4-1) @ Manly (3-2)
Canberra (2-3) @ Gold Coast (1-4)
Wests Tigers (1-4) @ North Queensland (4-1)
Parramatta (2-3) @ New Zealand (2-3)
Cronulla (3-2) @ Melbourne (5-0)
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.
