This is going to be a really interesting clash on Friday in the NRL.

The Wests Tigers have slumped to back to back defeats and are feeling a bit of pressure.

They will be facing the Brisbane Broncos who just broke themselves out of a horrible six match losing streak with a win over the Bulldogs last weekend.

Will the Broncos cause an upset against the Tigers?

Wests Tigers Preview – Can the Tigers get their bite back?

The Tigers lost 10-18 against the Rabbitohs last weekend, their second loss on the spin.

That is a W2 L3 record that they have taken in their last five games now.

The overall season record for the Wests Tigers in NRL is W4 L5.

A positive for them ahead of this one from a betting perspective is that they have superior stats to the Broncos.

Wests have scored an average of 21 points per game this season, compared to an average of just 14 by the Broncos.

On the other end of things, the Wests Tigers have conceded an average of 19 points per game, while the Broncos are up at a whopping 27 per game.

Our betting prediction:

The head to head does not make great reading for Wests Tigers at all. They have gone  only W6 L21 D1 against the Broncos since 1998.

However the Tigers traded wins with the Broncos last season.

This fixture is being played at the Leichhardt Oval, Sydney and Wests have won 2 of their previous 6 games there.

They will be hoping for a big game from David Nofoaluma, the winger being the joint second-highest try-scorer in this season’s Premiership.


Brisbane Broncos Preview – Can the Broncos build?

The six match losing slump is behind them. The Broncos claimed a 26-8 win over the Bulldogs to get that done.

However, it’s worth breaking in mind that the Bulldogs are the bottom side in the ladder.

So the Bulldogs still have a lot of work to do to prove that they have turned a corner in this difficult season.

It is a W3 L6 record that the Broncos are currently sitting on in the Premiership.

The Broncos have the third-worst defensive record in the ladder currently.

In total it’s been 243 points conceded, which is that aforementioned average of 27 per game against them.

Last season’s win for the Broncos over the Wests Tigers came by a 2 point margin.

Because they are underdogs here, a Broncos +6 in the handicap is at 10/11* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 23:15 GMT on Wednesday, 16th July 2020).
