Gold Coast Titans vs South Sydney Rabbitohs, Round 14 2024 - Expert Prediction


Are Souths back? The question will be on everyone’s lips following Origin as this game shapes up to be a thriller. My prediction is that the game will be extremely close and am therefore not backing a side but instead a short margin.

South Sydney have conceded the most points on average of any team this year and the Titans aren’t far behind them in 3rd spot. My predictive model has this game as high scoring and the set total of 53.5 is one of the highest we have seen this year so far. Whether you choose to take the Over or Under depends on how you view the attacking prowess of these two teams.

In my opinion with Kieran Foran returning to the Titans line up as well as some key backline figures the Titans will be able to score against a Souths team that has lacked that spark in defence. The Rabbits will also get their chances to put points on and with the dynamic halves combination they have will convert their opportunities. 

  • The Titans have finished 7 straight games with a Winning Margin between 1-12 points
  • South Sydney allow on average 34 Opposition Points per game, the most in the NRL
  • 5 of the last 6 games between these teams have gone Over the Game Total
  • The Rabbits have allowed 31 opposition tries down their left side defence this year


Head to Head 


Since the beginning of the 2019 season the Titans and Rabbits have met on 6 occasions with South Sydney winning all 6. You have to in fact go back to Round 13 of the 2016 season to find the last Titans win against the Rabbitohs.

The last 2 games in a row as well as 5 of the last 6 have gone Over the Game Total. The Winning Margin in the last 3 games straight has been 13+ points with only 2 of the last 6 coming in between 1-12 points.

Souths have not only won the previous 6 games outright they have also covered the line in 5 of 6, all as favourites and 3 as double digit favourites.

South Sydney had the bye last weekend leading into Origin but the week before they snapped a 6 game losing streak, downing the Eels 42-26. 

The Rabbits finally were able to play a complete game of footy, getting out early and dominating the first half. The Eels pushed back in the second stanza with the majority of the Territory but Souths were able to hold them out with tough defence. 

Souths had 563 Kick metres in the game and were tackled in the Eels 20m zone 46 times.

Verdict

Neither of these teams are especially good in defence this year so points will be on offer. In the end it could come down to goal-kicking with my predictive model having this game almost at a draw.
