This is a bottom-four clash in the ladder and of the two teams, it is the Brisbane Broncos who are in danger of finishing bottom of the ladder.

They have won just three matches all season and are only two points above bottom side, the Canterbury Bulldogs.

It’s been a long time since they got themselves a win, so will the Titans strike them down?

Gold Coast Titans Preview – Titans seek three in a row

There is a chance on the weekend for the Gold Coast Titans to make it three league wins on the spin.

Their recent success have come against St George Illawarra and then the Bulldogs. Those were victories recorded only by narrow margins.

It was actually a 4-point winning margin for the Titans in both of those successes.

Still, that moved them on to a W6 L11 record for the campaign and they have a six-point cushion over the Broncos with three to play.

The Titans are the second lowest-scoring team in the ladder at the moment, at an average of just 15 points per fixture.

They have not managed to put more than 18 points on the scoreboard in any of their last four league games.

So this will probably be a low-scoring fixture.

Just back in June the Titans however, romped to a big 18-point success against the Broncos.

Our betting prediction:
Titans 1-12 winning margin

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 04:25 GMT Thursday, 10th September)


That was a 30-12 scoreline that the Titans managed in that fixture and it has balanced out the recent head to head meetings.

The Titans and Broncos have split the last six meetings with three wins each. But interestingly each of the last six wins have gone to the away team on the day.

In the match outright for this fixture, the Gold Coast Titans are the 4/6 favourites for the victory* (odds taken 04:25 GMT Thursday, 10th September).

They are boasting a significantly better defensive record this season than the Broncos.


Brisbane Broncos Preview – Can the Broncos avoid defeat?

Brisbane actually threw their best foot forward in challenging the ladder-leaders the Penrith Panthers last weekend.

But they couldn’t hold on to a lead that they had created for themselves in that one and eventually fell to a 12-25 defeat.

That extended their big losing run to eight matches now and moved them on to a W3 L14 record for the campaign.

After their loss last weekend the Broncos were left as the lowest-scoring team in the ladder, but they are the only team to have conceded at least 500 points.

It has been a tally of 548 points that Brisbane have conceded this season and that is over 100 more than the next worst defensive league record currently in the NRL.

The Brisbane Broncos have conceded an average of 38 points per game during this eight-match losing streak.

Brisbane Broncos have never lost two games in a season against the Titans. So at least they have that going for them.

Another concern for them will be how much they burned themselves out last weekend in trying to hold onto their lead against Penrith.

That was a tough game for them and it is a little hard to see them picking themselves up to win this far more winnable fixture.

A Broncos +2 handicap line is at 10/11 for NRL betting on this game* (odds taken 04:25 GMT Thursday, 10th September).


Gold Coast Titans vs Brisbane Broncos Betting Advice

So here’s the set up. Five times before in the history of the Titan’s 14-year existence, they have won the first meeting of the season against the Broncos, but haven’t managed to secure the double.

That has been the case in the last two seasons and now here they are in the same position. Only this time, they have to make a very good case to get that elusive double.

Already, with three games of the season left, the Titans have won two games more than they did last season.


Key Facts – Gold Coast Titans vs Brisbane Broncos Betting Tip

  • Gold Coast Titans beat Brisbane 30-12 in June
  • Gold Coast Titans have never done the season-double over Brisbane
  • Brisbane Broncos are currently on an eight-match losing streak


We can see them getting another on the weekend, as they comprehensively beat the Broncos recently.

There is not a better opportunity for them to get that season-double recorded over Brisbane and we would consider some support for a Titans 1-12 winning margin at 11/5 odds* (odds taken 04:25 GMT Thursday, 10th September).

Will the Broncos slip ever closer to that wooden spoon position in the ladder?
