Two teams sitting at 1-1 through the first two rounds of the NRL season do battle when the St George Illawarra Dragons play host to the Cronulla Sharks on Thursday night.

St George was stiff not to go 2-0 after playing some great football against reigning premier Penrith last week. 

The Dragons fell short 20-16, but lost no admirers with the performance, while the Sharks held firm to register their first win of the year by defeating Parramatta.  

The Sharks are favoured to win this as the $1.68 favourite and it understandable given their recent success against the Dragons. 

Cronulla has won the last four fixtures in a row against the Dragons. 

But this Dragons team looks to have turned the corner this year and could make some big inroads. 

With Zac Lomax coming off a try-scoring double last weekend, the home team presents as a great bet. 

Suggested Bet: St George Illawarra head to head at $2.11

total points scored under 36.5

Four of the last five games between St George and Cronulla have gone well over the 36.5 points margin set for this contest. 

Both teams have good attacking options on the try-scoring front, but what makes us side with the unders here is the weather and most recent form between the clubs. 

Last year’s contest only garnered 25 points and with forecast rain about, scoring will likely be hard to come by. 

Suggested Bets: Total points under 36.5

The wet weather forecast for this contest looks as though it is going to cause some havoc.

We are expecting a low-scoring game which brings St George right into it at the head to head.

Take the home team head to head, total points under 36.5 and we will back Zac Lomax to score a try given he is in a strong patch of form.  

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: St George Illawarra head to head 
Leg 2: Total points scored under 36.5
Leg 3: Z. Lomax anytime try 
Combined odds = $11
