Wests Tigers vs Gold Coast Titans, Round 15 2024 - Expert Prediction


Two teams coming off big losses meet in this Saturday afternoon spectacle which is expected to go down to the wire.

The Tigers have been forced to reshuffle their halves whilst the Titans finally have some stability in their team putting out an almost unchanged lineup. Both of these teams are at the bottom of the rankings for Run Metres and Run Metres conceded so it will be interesting to see which team is able to control Territory and create opportunities close to the line to score points. 

The most sane tip in this game for mine is for any team to win by 1-12. The data modelling has the Tigers getting the win with the Home Ground Advantage but it could come down to Goalkicking or a last minute effort and we can cover all bases with an any team hit. 

  • 7 of the last 8 Titans games have finished with Margins of 1-12 points
  • 3 of the last 5 Tigers games have finished with Margins of 1-12 points
  • The Tigers (4) and Titans (4.2) are 3rd and 4th worst respectively in Linebreaks in the NRL 
  • Philip Sami has scored 3 tries in his last 2 games against the Tigers

Verdict

With two teams as poor in both attack and defence as these two have been this season it is hard to pick a side and see statistically where they are better than the other. I am riding the fence on this one and expect it to finish closely. The Over numbers on Game Totals are currently higher across the league so banking on them evening out in this one, 48 is a key number in the NRL.
