We’re treated to a Friday night rematch of Week 1’s season-opener between the New Zealand Warriors (6-0-9) and the Newcastle Knights (9-1-5), where the seventh-seeded Knights are -6 favorites (-110 juice) over the 12th-place Warriors.
Both teams, despite the win/loss record differential, come into this match with 3-2 records over their past five games played. The first meeting earlier this season was a drubbing on behalf of the Newcastle club; a 20-0 shutout. Here are the highlights:

It may be that loss that plays a bit into the moneyline odds-to-win as well, which finds the Warriors +185 to the Knights’ -220.
The Warriors, while allowing over 100 points more and scoring 96 fewer than their favored opponent on the season, have played some recent convincing matches such as a low-scoring, hard-fought 18-12 loss to the top-seeded Penrith Panthers just two weeks ago. They’ve also beaten teams within their vicinity of the win/loss column.
However, the Knights suffered a loss to the last place Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs five weeks ago, along with two close victories combining for four points difference over the 11th-ranked Manly Warringah Sea Eagles this season. They blew out the Wests Tigers (ninth-place) along the way though, 44-4, so they have the ability within them to run up the scoreboard when possible.
Besides the one blowout win, there isn’t much confidence I have in the Knights to lay six points to a gritty and rebounding Warriors club. And while you may care to play it safe on the +6 (-110), to quote the great Austin Powers, “I too like to live dangerously.”
