The Roosters collected a convincing win over Wests Tigers last weekend.

That will have been a welcome return to winning ways after having let one slip against the Storm in their previous match.

This season continues to be a bust for the Broncos, however, who were edged out by the Dragons in their last fixture.

Sydney Roosters Preview – Roosters return to winning ways

There were no problems for the Roosters last weekend as they shook off a loss against the Melbourne Storm to beat Wests Tigers.

It was a handsome 38-16 win that they took in that match as well which left them in fourth place in the ladder.

It is a W10 L5 record that the Roosters are on for the season and they are the top-scoring side in the ladder.

The Roosters are averaging 25 points per game this season, and while they have all that scoring power, they have not faltered in defence.

It has been an average of 14 points conceded per game by Sydney this season.

They currently hold the fourth-best defensive record in the Premiership.

Our betting prediction:
Roosters 21-30 Winning Margin

(odds taken 0600 GMT, Tuesday, 25th August)


The Roosters met the Broncos for the first time this season back at the start of June.

It was a crushing 59-0 victory that they posted over the hapless Brisbane side.

Given the odds in the match outright, bookmakers are expecting another stroll in the park for them.

A Sydney Roosters -26 handicap is at 21/20 and that doesn’t look an unreasonable proposition* (odds taken 0600 GMT, Tuesday, 25th August)


Brisbane Broncos Preview – Broncos continue their miserable season

It is a five-match losing streak that the Broncos are currently riding.

Overall for the campaign they are now at W3 L12 in what has been a nightmare season for them.

They parted ways with their head coach Anthony Seibold this week due to the fallout of the season.

It is so hard seeing them come up with anything here. One positive for them has been the scoring of centre Kotoni Staggs.

He has scored eight tries in his nine matches this season for them and is a 21/20 anytime try scorer for them on Friday* (odds taken 0600 GMT, Tuesday, 25th August).

It has been a tally of 465 points that the Broncos have conceded this season, a league-high.

Only one other team (Gold Coast Titans) have reached the 400-point mark against them.

But to heap more misery on, only the one team beneath them in the ladder, the Bulldogs, have scored fewer points than the Broncos have.

Their average losing margin this season is 23.7 points and overall, they are averaging 31 points per game against them.

Can they at least get on the scoreboard this time against the Roosters? Brisbane have actually won three of the last five against the Sydney Roosters.


Sydney Roosters vs Brisbane Broncos Betting Advice

A win for the Roosters should be coming up. If it doesn’t then it would probably be the shock of the NRL season.

The Roosters were absolutely ruthless against the Broncos back in June in posting their 59-0 win over them.

From that alone, we can heartily look to the handicap margin of -26 on the Roosters for 21/10* (odds taken 0600 GMT, Tuesday, 25th August).


Key Facts – Sydney Roosters vs Brisbane Broncos Betting Tip

  • Sydney Roosters beat the Broncos 59-0 in June
  • Sydney Roosters are the top-scorers in the league
  • Brisbane Broncos are on a five-match losing streak in the NRL


Sydney have won 11 of their last 13 games played at the SGC as well, so this is looking like a one-sided contest.

The Broncos are just in disarray at the moment and are not likely to lay a glove on the Roosters.
