Preliminary Finals of the NRL season


Penrith Panthers vs. Melbourne Storm

NRL Odds: Panthers -12.5; Storm +12.5 / Panthers -588; Storm +413 / O/U 38.5
Friday, September 22nd, 2023 at 5:50 a.m. EST
Accor Stadium, Sydney, Australia

For many, the standout match this weekend will see the Penrith Panthers and Melbourne Storm collide in a rematch of the 2020 Grand Final. On that occasion, the Storm came through with a 26-20 win, but that only kick-started the dynasty enjoyed by the Panthers in recent seasons.

The hosts come into the weekend as the defending champions and the minor premiers, and they will be heavily favored to continue their dominant run to the Grand Final.

Penrith comes into this match well-rested, as they cruised through against the Warriors to book their spot at this stage at the beginning of September. Their record at this stage is incredibly hard to ignore, as they have won their last seven matches in the finals. They have also won four of their last five against the Storm.

However, the Storm built momentum with a dramatic last-minute win over the Roosters last weekend, and they have appeared at this stage of the NRL in eight of the last nine years.

But, the key trend could be the fact that the Panthers have won seven of their last eleven against their rivals, and that could see them as the standout pick to secure their spot in the Grand Final once again.

Brisbane Broncos vs. New Zealand Warriors

NRL Odds: Broncos -10.5; Warriors +10.5 / Broncos -384; Warriors +293 / O/U 42.5
Friday, September 23rd, 2023 at 5:50 a.m. EST
Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Australia

History will be made regardless of the outcome at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday, as the Brisbane Broncos and Warriors are both looking to end their wait for an appearance in the Grand Final.

The Warriors have defied all expectations this term to reach this stage of the competition, as they will be competing in the Preliminary Finals for the first time since 2011 following victory over the Knights last weekend.

Meanwhile, the Broncos have made an extended period to prepare for this showdown, as they bolted past the Knights in the opening round of the postseason. Brisbane will take confidence from the last clash between these sides at this stage, as they won 40-10 in 2011. However, they haven’t won the title in 17 years.

The Warriors are chasing a first title since entering the NRL in 1995, and they appear to be a team that are looking stronger with every passing week. We will be siding with the visitors this weekend, as the hosts have won just three of their last eight at Suncorp Stadium.

Marcelo Montoya could be a player to watch for the Warriors, as he has scored in three straight appearances against the Broncos.
