This should be a highlight of the NRL this weekend with two teams who are in great form, going into battle.

The Rabbitohs have strung together a great five-match winning streak for themselves, so are hot right now.

But the Storm have, once again, been one of the outstanding performers of the season and were back on their game last weekend in thumping the Sea Eagles.

South Sydney Rabbitohs Preview – Can the Rabbitohs keep their winning streak going?

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have hit top form with a five-match winning streak under their belt.

Last weekend they produced a 38-0 win over the Parramatta Eels, one of their big success stories of the season.

Not only have South Sydney been winning, but they have been winning well and have scored at least 30 points in all but one of their last five games.

So they are red-hot right now, but still, they are going into this fixture as the 6/4 underdogs* (odds taken 02:37 GMT, Thursday 3rd September).

Overall for this season, the Rabbitohs have produced an average of 22 points per game, which is just shy of the 24 per game average from the Melbourne Storm.

Our betting prediction:
Storm 1-10 winning margin

(odds taken 02:37 GMT, Thursday 3rd September)


There has been a difference between the defensive output of the two, with the Rabbitohs conceding an average of 18 per game, far above the 12 per game average of Melbourne.

In the last meeting between these two clubs, which was back in early June 2020, the Storm collected a 22-8 win over South Sydney.

That is a three-match losing streak that South Sydney are now on against the Melbourne Storm.


Melbourne Storm Preview – Can Storm blow past the Rabbitohs?

We need to get a little deeper into the recent head to head between these for Rabbitohs v Storm NRL betting.

The Melbourne Storm have dropped just one of their last nine matches played against the Rabbitohs.

So that is some powerful head to head form that they have going against them.

After a loss against the Parramatta Eels in their penultimate match, the Storm were back on form last weekend.

They pounded their way past the Manly Sea Eagles to collect a 30-6 win.

That moved the Storm on to a W13 L3 record for the season and in second place after sixteen rounds.

Only two teams have scored more points in league matches this season than the Melbourne Storm have done.

The average winning margin by the Storm is 19 points this season, but that looks a big stretch in this one against a strong team.

A more reasonable handicap line of Storm -4 is at 8/11 to consider* (odds taken 02:37 GMT, Thursday 3rd September).

This is going to be a really good contest and not much between the two.


South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Melbourne Storm Betting Advice

The Melbourne Storm are going to have their hands full in this one as they are chasing down the minor premiership title.

We do have to take the head to head into consideration here and that means we do just side with the Storm getting the win.

They have been more consistent over the course of the season and while they have to be at their very best here, they can handle themselves.


Key Facts – South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Melbourne Storm Betting Tip
