IT HAS NOW BEEN PROVEN that the Cowboys have the ability to win without Johnathan Thurston which has seen them move to 3rd on the ladder. The Bulldogs however are struggling to find any consistency and find themselves languishing two wins outside the top 8. The Cowboys have racked up three wins from their past four games and things are looking even better with talk of a possible return for Johnathan Thurston next week. The Bulldogs recent 4 games however bear only one win. The Bulldogs home ground advantage shortens their odds a bit but the Cowboys will go into the game with deserved favouritism.

Mike’s Best Bet: None

Starting Bank: $2000, Current Bank $2547.49
