Thursday night football under the lights of Sunshine Coast Stadium. 

The best bets for the game of the round are in.

head to head

August 26th 7:50pm

Newcastle welcomes Gold Coast to Sunshine Coast Stadium on Thursday night with a finals berth up for grabs.

The Knights have put themselves in the pole position to ensure they will play finals this year having won their last three games with the most recent being a 22-16 victory over wooden spooner Canterbury. 

Gold Coast, meanwhile, has lost its past two games, but those matches have been against superior opposition in the form of premiership favourite Melbourne Storm and premiership contender South Sydney. 

The neutral venue probably favours Gold Coast here and its form looks to have a bit more depth than the Knights who only battled against the Bulldogs last week. 

Let us not all forget the massacre the Titans imposed on the Knight earlier this season. 

A 42-16 drubbing saw David Fifita cross the line three times and he will be the threat after being well held by the Storm.  

Suggested Bet: Gold Coast -1.5 at $1.86

Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: Gold Coast head to head
Leg 2: Total points over 46.5 
Leg 3: D. Fifita anytime tryscorer
Combined odds = $5.75

first try scorer

David Fifita/Kalyn Ponga

David Fifita’s try-scoring feats last time the two teams played each other should have him poised for a big performance in this match.

The marquee Titan was kept very quiet against Melbourne Storm last week and will be keen to atone for that performance. 

Kalyn Ponga also poses a threat as the first try-scorer against a Titans who can be vulnerable on defence early in games. 

Suggested Bets: 
David Fifita first try at $15
Kalyn Ponga first try at $12

total points scored

Over 46.5

With a perfect night predicted on the weather front, we fully expect this game to get well beyond the 46.5 points.

It was a try-scoring feast last time these two teams met back in Round 5 at CBUS Super Stadium. 

The score blew out to 58 points for the whole game. 

Gold Coast looked super dangerous in offence against the Storm last week, while the Knights defence looked shaky against Canterbury. 

Referee is going to have a long night blowing that whistle for scores. 

Suggested Bet: Total points over 46.5 at $1.90
