This could be a one-sided affair in the NRL on Friday. If this game produces anything other than a dominant win for the Storm, it will be an upset of some magnitude.

The Brisbane Broncos have fallen a long way in this campaign and slumped to another embarrassing defeat last weekend.

Are the Broncos about to suffer another major hit as they face the red-hot in-form Melbourne Storm?

Melbourne Storm Preview – Storm hitting their stride again

Let’s start with the staggering 1/14 odds-on favourites for this match, the Melbourne Storm.

They powered their way to a fourth straight league win last weekend putting a 42-6 win on the board over the Titans.

The Titans are, for context, second from bottom in the ladder with the same season’s record as that of the Broncos.

The Melbourne Storm are now W8 L2 for the season after their ten round of action.

They continue to be impressive and look to be getting stronger in all departments.

Defensively they have been very good, with only the Parramatta Eels bettering their record.

The Melbourne Storm have conceded only 12 points per game on average, while the Broncos have in contrast, conceded at 29 per game on average.

Our betting prediction:
Storm Winning Margin 31-40

So there definitely is a big win scenario in front of the Melbourne Storm one would imagine.

They have averaged 23 points per game this season, a long way ahead of the 13 per game on average produced by the Broncos.

There is also the strong head to head between the two in favour of Melbourne.

It is a seven match winning streak that the Storm are on against Brisbane.


Brisbane Broncos Preview – Season’s slump continues

The Brisbane Broncos are W3 L8 for the season now.

Last weekend they suffered a humiliating 0-48 loss against the Wests Tigers, hitting a new low of not even getting a point on the board.

That was their fourth loss in their last five games in the NRL and are just leaking points everywhere.

As mentioned above they are averaging 29 points per game against them.

They have the worst defensive record in the entire ladder to boot.

It’s hard to see them turning the corner and putting things together to collect a shock upset from 7/1* (odds taken 01:13 GMT, Wednesday 22nd July)

It is likely going to be all change in the starting line up for Brisbane once again.

They should have Kotoni Staggs back in the centre and Herbie Farnworth on the wing.

Last year the Broncos lost 40-4 against the Melbourne Storm and this could get just as ugly.
