Eagles v Storm NRL Betting Guide

There is a big game coming from the NRL on Saturday afternoon as Melbourne Storm make the journey to Manly Sea Eagles in what is a battle between  the teams sitting in third and fourth respectively right now.

Storm are two points clear of their opponents, but the Eagles are on home soil here and are sure to fancy their chances of moving level with the team in third. Although both are going to make the season finale, they will want to finish the campaign strongly and build some much-needed momentum ahead of the big showdown at the end of the season.

Looking at the home team to begin with, they have been consistent throughout the majority of the campaign and it is now seven wins out of eight matches, so they do come into this one in good form.

The Manly Sea Eagles have been strong offensively as well and scored 36 points last week, but they didn’t find things easy against Melbourne Storm earlier in the season as the two teams played out a surprise 10-10 draw.

That was a good result for the Eagles, but now they are on home soil, they will be looking to take the spoils and if you fancy a bet on the hosts, they currently have odds of 2.25 with bet365, so are considered the underdogs with the bookies and might just prove to be good value.

As for Melbourne Storm, they come into this clash on the back of four straight wins and confidence will be sky high in the camp.

The visitors are just three points off the top of the table with two games to go, so they know that if results go their way, they could finish in first position, which would be a big boost for them.

Those betting on Storm will get odds of 1.8 over at Bookmaker and although they are playing well, this might be a little bit short considering they take on one of the best teams in the NRL and are of course away from home.

For more value on your bets, it is all about the betting on the first scoring play and you can see that a try for Sea Eagles currently has odds of 2.20 over at Sportingbet, which might just be a decent punt for this match.

Then, if you think Storm will score a try first, you can back this happening at 1.95 with Luxbet.
