Broncos vs Storm Preview and Prediction

Reigning premiers Melbourne will be confident of extending their brilliant recent record in Queensland and registering their 10th straight win over the Broncos when the two sides square off at Suncorp on Thursday night.

The Storm have dominated this match-up over the last few seasons – they’ve won the last nine meetings between the teams and prevailed by 34 points or more in their last three encounters, scoring at least 40 points in all of those games.

Additionally, Melbourne are averaging 38.6 points per game when winning this season, along with 41 points in their last seven matches at Suncorp. With those numbers, it comes as no surprise the Storm have won their last eight NRL games by 13+ margins.

Making their run even more impressive is that they’ve been doing it the last couple of weeks without their spine. Indeed, Ryan Papenhuyzen, Cameron Munster, Jahrome Hughes and Harry Grant ALL missed last week’s game against the Raiders, but Melbourne still managed to win and put on 34 points in the process.

If that’s not intimating, we don’t know what is.

However, Brisbane will be feeling confident heading into this showdown after recording one of the biggest upsets in the last decade in Round 11.

The Broncos were given next to no chance of beating the Roosters, but Kevin Walters conjured up a miracle win, with his side chalking up victory by 18 points at the SCG.

It was a strong response from leaking 50 points to Manly the previous week, but we’re going to need to see more from the Broncos before we start taking them seriously – after all, they haven’t won back-to-back matches since Rounds 1 and 2 last season.

The Storm own this match-up and have a tremendous record in Queensland and at Suncorp. Another routine win for Melbourne with plenty of points is on the cards to kick off Round 12 (Storm win & over 48.5 points best odds with Sportsbet).
