NRL Betting Tips Round 19 Preview: Sunday afternoon footy

Tagged: NRL

Warriors looking to weather the Storm

Warriors  Storm 

NRL Odds: New Zealand Warriors $2.25 (+3.5) / Melbourne Storm $1.65 (-3.5)

The Warriors were back to their brilliant best last week, defeating the Broncos in front of a packed Suncorp Stadium.

Sparking the form reversal for the Warriors was hooker Isaac Luke, who was at his best with several probing runs from dummy half. 

This week the Storm welcome back five Origin stars and will look to continue their dominance over New Zealand.

Melbourne has won their last five against the Warriors and has kept them to under 14 points in every one of those games. 

However, if Melbourne is to come away with the two points, they must improve their completion rate where they are currently ranked last in the NRL. 

For the Warriors to win, they must play some off-the-cuff footy. With the Storm's major weakness being their inability to adapt to adlib play, the Warriors' best chance of victory is for Shaun Johnson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck to be at their elusive best. 

NRL Player In K Maumalo (Warriors), B Slater (Storm), W Chambers (Storm), J Ado-Carr (Storm), C Munster (Storm), F Kaufusi (Storm)

NRL Player Out A Gelling (Warriors), J Hughes (Storm), J Stimson (Storm), C Blair (Storm), Y Tonumaipea (Storm), R Jacks (Storm)

NRL Weather Chance of showers and 14 degrees.

NRL Stats Key NRL stats

  • Average points scored: Warriors 19.6 / Storm 23.5
  • Average points conceded: Warriors 19.1 / Storm 15.6
  • The Storm have won their last five games against the Warriors 

NRL Betting TipKey NRL Betting Stats

  • The Warriors have covered the line at 64.7% this season: Warriors +3.5 @ $1.90
  • David Fusitu'a (3) leads both teams in first try scorers this season: David Fusitu'a first try @ $10
  • Clashes at Mt Smart Stadium have averaged 32.8 total match points: 'Under' match line of 36.5 points @ $1.90

NRL Betting Tip NRL Betting Tip: 'Under' total match points line of 36.5 points @$1.90  NRL Betting Tip

Reasoning: With showers predicted in the lead-up, this game could be played on a slippery surface.

If that's the case, this could be a gruelling encounter, much like the round 16 Roosters v Storm at Adelaide Oval.

Sea Eagles  v  Roosters

NRL Odds: Sea Eagles $2.55 (+5.5) / Sydney Roosters $1.52 (-5.5)

The Sea Eagles fell narrowly to a depleted Melbourne team last week in a result sure to take the wind out of their sails.

With finals footy now out of the picture, they have little to play for and coach Trent Barrett will do well to get his team pumped up for this clash. 

The Trbojevic brothers will carry some Origin fatigue into this week, so Manly fans shouldn't expect miracles from them. 

A depleted Roosters side got the win over the Titans in Round 18 and they'll welcome backsix of their best for this clash.

Off the back of a good rest, expect the Chooks stars to be firing on all cylinders. 

The Roosters will come into this game well aware of their recent poor record against the Silvertails. 

With only two wins from their last seven encounters, there will be no room for complacency.

NRL Player In J Tedesco (Roosters), L Mitchell (Roosters), C Cronk (Roosters), B Cordner (Roosters), V Radley (Roosters), M Aubusson (Roosters)

NRL Player Out N Butcher (Roosters), L Collins (Roosters), M Ikuvalu (Roosters), S O'Sullivan (Roosters), P Momirovski (Roosters), P Faamasuili (Roosters)

NRL Weather Fine and 17 degrees.

NRL Stats Key NRL stats

  • Average points scored per game: Sea Eagles 19.5 / Roosters 20.1
  • Average points conceded per game: Sea Eagles 22.4 / Roosters 14.1
  • Manly have won 5 of their last 7 against the Roosters 

NRL Betting TipKey NRL Betting Stats

  • The Roosters have covered the line at 58.8% this season: Roosters -5.5 @ $1.90
  • Latrell Mitchell (4) leads both teams in first try scorers this season: Latrell Mitchell first try scorer @ $10
  • Clashes at Lottoland Oval have averaged 41.2 total match points: 'Over' match line of 40.5 points @ $1.90

NRL Betting Tip NRL Betting Tip: Roosters to cover the line of -5.5 @ $1.90 NRL Betting Tip

Reasoning: The Chooks have been outstanding in defence all season, which will prove difficult for the Sea Eagles to break down. 

The return of six Roosters stars will provide a massive boost.

Look for those players to deliver a huge spark in attack and nce the game gets away from Manly in the latter stages, expect the Roosters to pile on the points.
