The Raiders get no better chance to turn their embattled season around when they host a Thurston-less Cowboys side in the nation’s capital on Sunday afternoon.
The Raiders showed an improved effort last week despite losing to the Panthers, however defence still seems to be their Achilles heel as they continue to leak points.
Conversely, the Cowboys were ultra-impressive putting the cleaners through the Roosters, however this is a different kettle of fish and without a number of key players they appear up against it here .
Canberra have won 9/13 at the ground against the Cowboys, with high scoring being the norm as 10 of these encounters has tallied over 40pts.
The Cowboys are also winless on the road this year, so this will further enhance the Raiders prospects of attaining a much needed victory.
Make no mistake, the Raiders should be winning this game, however at the price I’d need my head read even contemplating backing them, so will let this one go through to the keeper.
Verdict: No Bet
