The Broncos suffered another defeat last weekend as they shipped another boatload of points in going up against the Melbourne Storm.

That’s almost 100 points contended in their last two fixtures.

So the Cronulla Sharks will be fancying their chances in this one as after having won four of their last five fixtures. They have the momentum.

Brisbane Broncos Preview – Broncos in more trouble

The Brisbane Broncos took an 8-46 hit against the Melbourne Storm last weekend.

That came right after they were hounded 0-48 by the Wests Tigers in their previous fixture.

It is a W3 L8 record now that the Broncos are on and they are sitting second from bottom in the ladder.

With them having conceded 337 points this season, that is the worst defensive record in the NRL in this campaign.

They have conceded an average of 30 points per fixture this season and it’s just getting worse.

In attack the Broncos, who do have a star-studded team, have only taken an average of 12 points per fixture.

Our betting prediction:
Sharks 11-20 Winning Margin

(odds taken 22:12 GMT Tuesday, 28th July 2020)


The Brisbane Broncos have suffered eight losses in their last nine league games now.

It is hard to see how they turn around this nightmare of a season around on its head.

The one positive that they have going for them is that the Broncos are on a six match winning streak against the Sharks.

Not going so well is the fact that in six of their 11 fixtures in this NRL campaign, the Broncos have failed to score a second-half point.


Cronulla Sharks Preview – Sharks on the hunt for a top-four place

There is no problem with the form of the Cronulla Sharks who are hunting a top-four place.

It has been four wins in their last five games now after edging past the Dragons 28-24 last weekend.

They have been a free-scoring side this season and the Cronulla Sharks have scored at least 40 points in three of their last five.

The Sharks are averaging 25 points per game this season which is double the average of the Broncos.

Definitely the Sharks have averaged 22 points per game against them in this campaign.

At the Suncorp Stadium the Sharks have won five of fifteen visits there since 1998.

The Sharks are 15-25 down in the head to head against the Melbourne Storm.

The average winning margin for the Sharks this season is 16.7 points which is a good mark for the handicap.

The Cronulla Sharks -6 handicap is well worth a punt at 11/10 with Boylesports* (odds taken 22:12 GMT Tuesday, 28th July 2020).

It has been a positive W4 L2 record that the Sharks have taken in their designated away games this season.

One big thing for Cronulla is that they have lost their last six fixtures against the Broncos.

But there is likely not going to be a better time for them to snap that streak against the Broncos.


Brisbane Broncos vs Cronulla Sharks Betting Advice

The Sharks should have more than enough in attack to take apart the Broncos who have been flimsy in defence.

Cronulla have scored 142 points more than the Broncos have done this season in their matches and we can only see a comfortable win happening.

This is likely one of those occasions where the head to head form can be thrown out of the window.


Key Facts – Brisbane Broncos vs Cronulla Sharks Betting Tip

  • Brisbane Broncos are W3 L8 this season
  • Brisbane Broncos have conceded 94 points in their last two games
  • Cronulla Sharks have lost their last 6 against the Broncos


The form of the Broncos is just so woeful at the moment, sitting just two points ahead of bottom side the Bulldogs with a far worse points-difference, that the Sharks have to be backed.

Given how many points the Broncos have conceded in their last two games, a wider line in the handicap margin may be worth considering.
