This shapes as a fabulous matchup making the line of well over a converted try somewhat confounding. Chips in Canterbury +8.
The Bulldogs are going as well as any team in the premiership this season and while the Cowboys have probably been visually more pleasing they have struggled to put away good teams in 2016. With the Bulldogs so good interstate, so good when well rested and so good as an underdog, they have to be the bet in this one at the big line.
The over also shapes as a bet as it often is when a team scored 30 off a bye.
