Betting Week: Round 23 of the NRL season


Penrith Panthers vs. Melbourne Storm

The standout match this weekend takes place on Friday morning, as the table-topping Penrith Panthers host the Melbourne Storm. These two sides have played out one of the great modern-day rivalries in recent years, and the Panthers appear on the cusp of a rare three-peat.

Penrith have been in excellent form at home in recent months, as they have won their last seven at BlueBet Stadium. But the Storm have won on seven of their previous nine visits to the Panthers. Penrith are without back-to-back regular season wins over the Storm since 2005, but they have won four of their last six against their rivals.

Melbourne are the huge +260 outsiders this weekend, and we find it challenging to overlook the Panthers, despite being priced up at -333.

North Queensland Cowboys vs. Brisbane Broncos

Any slip-up from the Panthers on Friday will open the door for the Brisbane Broncos this weekend. The Broncos currently sit second in the standings, but they are level on points with their NRL rivals. It could be challenging to overlook Brisbane this weekend, as their attacking players have been on-song throughout the season.

Only Parramatta have scored more points this term than the Broncos, while the visitors have scored an incredible 144 points over their last four matches. The Cowboys hold claims of their own as they chase a seventh straight home win to enhance their playoff spots. Murray Taulagi could be their key player, as he has scored five tries in his previous three appearances at QCB Stadium.

North Queensland are the outsider in the betting at +148, while the Broncos are available at -178. Given the form of their attacking players, we fully expect Brisbane to cover the spread this weekend.

South Sydney Rabbitohs vs. Cronulla Sharks

A huge match in the race for a playoff spot takes place in Perth on Saturday as the Rabbitohs take on the Sharks. The sides are level on points in the current standings, with South Sydney sitting above their rivals on points difference. However, the Rabbitohs have dominated their previous encounters against the Sharks, as they have won five of their last seven.

The Sharks will also have questions to answer this weekend, as they have allowed a huge 102 points across their last three matches. It should be a tight match between these two rivals, which is highlighted by the fact that the sides lead the NRL in terms of line breaks this term.

But, the recent form of the Sharks is a huge concern, which is reflected by their price of +360 in the odds. Therefore, we will be taking the slightly safe option of siding with the Rabbitohs on the moneyline at -500.
