Brisbane Broncos vs Melbourne Storm Preview

Things went from bad to miserable last week for the Broncos as they suffered an embarrassing shutout loss on Friday night to the Tigers.

The Storm were on the opposite end in their 42-6 thumping over the Titans on the Sunshine Coast, and not surprisingly, Melbourne find themselves as the odds-on favourites as they venture down the highway to Suncorp this week.

Ordinarily, this would be a blockbuster game, but considering how dreadful the Broncos have looked on defence since the restart, it’s tough to build a case for a Brisbane upset.

As we’ve seen a few times already this year, coach Anthony Semibold is looking to reshuffle his lineup in the hopes of providing a much-needed spark.

Anthony Milford will switch to fullback this week, while Brodie Croft slots in at five-eighth. Katoni Staggs returning is a huge plus, but the absence of Corey Oates going forward will be felt significantly.

For the Storm, there’s also good news on the wing with Suliasi Vunivalu a chance at returning from a two-game absence.

In terms of trends, the Storm have won seven straight over the Broncos dating back to 2016, but you will have to get creative with the market if you actually want to bet on this game.

The last four games between these two sides at Suncorp have gone Over the Total, so that looks to be the play here.
