The NRL Round 19 match between North Queensland Cowboys and Melbourne Storm features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Friday July 23.
Bet Of The Day July 23 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
We’ve had success backing Melbourne over the last couple of months and we’re hoping for more of the same for today’s best when the reigning premiers face the slumping Cowboys in NRL Round 19 action.
The Storm are absolutely flying and head into this clash on a 14-match winning streak.
Craig Bellamy’s side have won 13 of those games by 13+ margins, while they’ve also scored 40+ points in 10.
With 11 straight wins over the Cowboys, it doesn’t get much more dominant than that.
Melbourne will only get stronger for this encounter as well, with electric fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen set to play his first game since Round 10.
Then you have the Cowboys, who are in shambles right now.
North Queensland are on a five-match losing streak and are struggling big time, especially in defence where they’ve conceded an average of 38.5 points during that aforementioned losing run.
With the Storm consistently scoring at least 40 points and the Cowboys leaking 38 over the last month, all signs point to a big Melbourne win with tons of points being scored tonight.
