Unlike their AFL cousins, league fans didn't fare so well last week when only four of the eight favourites won.

The biggest upsets were the wins by Newcastle over Canberra and Parramatta over Brisbane, and on paper this week looks just as difficult.

There has never been a league season like this, and every match this week is important as far as all of the 'futures' books are concerned. The Bulldogs are $4.00 to win the competition ahead of Souths ($4.50) and Melbourne ($5.50), but on form there are several other sides in form that are capable of winning - they just have to make the finals!

Gold Coast were $13.00 to make the final 8 three weeks ago, but are now $21.00 to win it, and Newcastle have finally struck form and are in to $34.00, but they also need to maintain form to feature.

It doesn't get much bigger than this week for the Knights as they host the Bulldogs, and if they can win here they should just about make the play-offs. Plenty think they can as action has been split between them at $2.45 and the Bulldogs at $1.55.

The Titans will be without Greg Bird, but that hasn't put too many off as they have been well backed at $2.35 to beat the rampaging Souths ($1.60) on Sunday afternoon. There is some question mark over Souths 'away' form, but they have been in terrific form, and can still mathematically grab the minor premiership.

A month ago Wests Tigers would have been $1.15 to beat Parramatta, but the Tigers have faltered, and the Eels had a big win over Brisbane last Monday, so the betting gap has closed. The Tigers are $1.60 with the Eels at $2.35, and a loss for the Tigers would almost certainly end finals aspirations. At the other end of the ladder, the wooden spoon looked certain to be heading Parramatta's way prior to last weekend, and a win here would also see that unlikely to happen.
