Gold Coast Titans vs Canberra Raiders Predictions


The Gold Coast Titans have won seven of their last eight Premiership games and look to be getting stronger every week. They come up against a Canberra Raiders side who had their hearts broken last weekend against The Warriors. 

The in-form Titans are tipped for a narrow victory at underdog odds.

  • Gold Coast Titans have equalled their best ever run of form. 
  • Gold Coast Titans have won 7 of their last 8 matches.
  • Canberra Raiders gave up a 21-point lead when losing to New Zealand Warriors last week.

Head-to-Head


There have been 25 games played between Gold Coast and Canberra with the Titans winning 12 games and the Raiders slightly better with 13 wins.

Canberra has won eight of their last 11 games against the Titans, several by big scores. The Titans haven’t kept Canberra under 20 points since Round 24 in 2015.

These sides will clash at Jubilee Oval for the first time on Saturday.

Gold Coast Titans Form


The much-hyped, new-look Gold Cast Titans started their 2021 season with a rather meek performance in Round 1, as they fell to the New Zealand Warriors 19-6. 

They were vastly better in Round 2 as they comfortably accounted for the Brisbane Broncos 28-16. 

Last week, The Titans ran riot over a very poor North Queensland outfit, scoring a 44-8 win.

Gold Coast Titans Team News


The Titans will field the exact same side that decimated the Cowboys last weekend. 

Centre Brian Kelly is looking like he may be available next week at the earliest, while five-eighth Ash Taylor is on track for a return in a fortnight’s time.

Canberra Raiders Form


Canberra hit the ground running to open their 2021 campaign, racking up a comfortable 30-12 victory over the Wests Tigers. 

In Round 2, Canberra were fortunate to beat a Cronulla side 12-10, whose inability to kick goals cost them a victory. 

Last weekend, the Raiders had a solid 25-6 lead over the New Zealand Warriors at halftime. But injuries decimated their playing numbers, reducing them to just one reserve for the remaining 65 minutes of the game. 

The Warriors fought back to run down the weary but gallant Raiders side with a last gasp try to win 34-31.

Canberra Raiders Team News


Forwards Dunamis Lui and Hudson Young have both been moved into the run-on side, forcing Ryan Sutton to Lock in order to cover for the injured Joseph Tapine. 

Sebastian Kris will return to centre after last weekend’s shift to the back row to cover for the injured Curtis Scott.

Ryan James and Kris have been named to play this weekend, but have to pass concussion protocols during the week before they can be cleared to play.
