The Warriors slumped to a massive defeat last weekend as they crumbled at the hands of the Melbourne Storm. That leaves them with three losses in their last four games now.

As for the Broncos, nothing is going right for them this season. They were hit with yet another defeat in round seven, as the struggling Titans managed to get the better of Brisbane.

New Zealand Warriors Preview – Can Warriors raise their game?

It has been a defensive issue after defensive issue for the Warriors in their last two games.

They have conceded 90 points in total across their last two Premiership fixtures.

The first of those was a 12-40 loss against the Rabbitohs and then it got worse last weekend as they were beaten 6-50 by the Storm.

To be fair the defensive problems of the Warriors have been there all season and only two teams in the ladder who have conceded more points than they have done now.

The average losing margin that the Warriors have been beaten by this season is a huge 26.4 points.

The average margin of points that they have given up in all games this season in the Premiership stands at 26.

The New Zealand Warriors are sitting on a W2 L5 record for the campaign and have lost three of their last four.

Our betting prediction:
Total Points Over 46.5

(odds taken 0101 GMT Friday, 3rd July)


This fixture is being played at the Central Coast Stadium and the Warriors have won all four previous games played there.

So that’s one little positive. The head to head is tight with the Warriors trailing 18-19 (D1) in the last 38 meetings.

The last time they met there there was an 18-18 tie between them after the Broncos had edged an 8-2 win in the season’s first meeting.

The Warriors have averaged just 11 points per game this season in the Premiership.


Brisbane Broncos Preview – Can Broncos buck their losing habit?

This has rapidly turned into a season to forget for the Brisbane Broncos.

They are W2 L5, the same as the Warriors are, but Brisbane are on a five match losing streak at the moment.

The Broncos suffered another tough loss last weekend as they were beaten by the struggling Gold Coast Titans who cruised to a 30-12 win against Brisbane.

They just can’t seem to stop the rot and now have the worst defensive record in the ladder having conceded a total of 209 points in matches.

The average losing margin for the Broncos this season is 25.6 which is only marginally better than the Warriors.

It has been the one win in their last four games against the Warriors that Brisbane have taken (D1 L2).

They have been marginally better on the scoring front than the Warriors have been but still, this looks as if it is going to be a tight game.

In the handicap a Broncos -6 is at 11/10 which won’t be a great tempter for punters most likely* (odds taken 0101 GMT Friday, 3rd July).

Brisbane Broncos are dealing with a couple of key injuries to Matt Lodge and Joe Ofahengaue, but overall they have a star-studded line up which is just not firing.

The Broncos have had two matches on the Central Coast this season already and have lost both of them.

In contrast the Warriors have won four from five played there, so how much of that will be a factor in this big basement battle on the weekend?


New Zealand Warriors vs Brisbane Broncos Betting Advice

What a tough game to call. On paper, looking at the lineups, the Broncos should be taking the win in this one.

But we have said that about them before this season and supporters of them have been let down.

So that leaves New Zealand Warriors vs Brisbane Broncos betting right up in the air.


Key Facts – New Zealand Warriors vs Brisbane Broncos Betting Tip

  • New Zealand Warriors have won 4 of 5 at the Central Coast Stadium
  • The Broncos have the league’s worst defensive record

There is a possibility that one of these could finish bottom of the entire ladder on the week and the pressure is high.

They have a bit of head to head form going, have enjoyed themselves at the Central Coast Stadium and have at least won a couple of times in their last five fixtures.
