Storm vs Eels Preview and Prediction

More history is on the line for Melbourne when the reigning premiers come up against Parramatta at Suncorp on Saturday night.

After notching up their 19th straight NRL win over the Titans last week, the Storm have the chance to break the all-time Australian rugby league record for most consecutive wins in this encounter.

Craig Bellamy’s side are overwhelming favourites to do just that – they’ve won 30 matches on the trot in Queensland, and even though they’ve understandably taken their foot off the pedal over the last month, they’ve still been winning games relatively comfortably.

The Titans raced out to a 10-0 lead last week before Melbourne snapped into gear and ultimately won at a canter by a 34-20 scoreline.

With a host of key figures returning for this match and history on the line, we can expect the Storm to lift accordingly here.

Melbourne will also have revenge on their mind after Parramatta became just one of two teams to beat them all the way back in Round 2.

The Eels edged a 16-12 win in torrential rain back in March, but Brad Arthur’s side have stumbled with the finish line in sight, losing four of their last five games.

Parramatta broke their four-match losing run with a 32-16 win over the Cowboys last week, but suffice to say this is an enormous step up in class.

VERDICT:

The Eels have struggled in attack since the Origin period and it’s tough to see them scoring enough points to hang with the Storm.

As mentioned, Melbourne have plenty of incentive to produce a big performance here and with some big names back, they should do just that.

We’ll be backing the Storm home in a comfortable and record-breaking 20th straight victory (Best Storm win & under 51.5 points odds $1.90 with Sportsbet).
