Melbourne Storm odds

Melbourne Storm NRL
Despite being one of the youngest teams in the National Rugby League, the Melbourne Storm already rank among the most successful of the modern era. But for some well-documented salary cap breaches, the men in purple would have six premierships since joining the competition in 1998.

Melbourne were among the standout teams throughout the 2020 regular season, finishing second to the impressive Penrith Panthers. Those roles were reversed in the NRL Grand Final, where Craig Bellamy’s men capped a unique campaign with a memorable victory.

Will the Storm subside in 2021, or will they be there or thereabouts once again? Let’s see what Australia’s best NRL bookies are saying.

Storm players to watch in 2021

Cameron Munster NRL oddsCameron Munster
Born: 13/9/1994
Games: 131
Tries: 28
Position: Five-eighth

This guy is one of the reasons Melbourne were always going to be OK once the likes of Cooper Cronk and Billy Slater moved on. Now to top it off Cameron Smith is officially gone which means we will see exactly what Cameron Munster is capable of this season. Munster being under the leadership of some of the top players will set him up for a successful season. He will be one to watch with the ball but also watching how he leads the team in the tough moments.

Storm winger Josh Addo-CarrJosh-Addo Carr
Born: 28/7/1995
Games: 105
Tries: 79
Position: Winger

This guy was a decent player when he left Wests Tigers at the end of 2016. Now he is a certified star of the competition. Addo-Carr has turned out to be much more than I think the Storm ever thought he would be. Having a 75% chance of going over in every game the opposition can never take him lightly when the Storm are attacking. With Suliasi Vunivalu leaving the team at the end of 2020, we can only expect they will be leaning on Addo-Carr a little more until Reimis Smith finds his feet in the team. There is no reason his current performance will not continue throughout this year.

Ryan Papenhuyzen NRL bettingRyan Papenhuyzen
Born: 10/6/1998
Games: 42
Tries: 20
Position: Fullback

People were worried for whoever had to come and fill Billy Slaters shoes, however Ryan filled those shoes perfectly. 2020 Clive Churchill medalist Ryan had 11 tries, 15 try assists, 70 tackle breaks and 15 line breaks in 20 games last year. Moving into his third year with the storm and not too many changes to the side we are expecting this to be his best year yet with having two years experience in first grade footy and will be competing with the likes of James Tedseco for the fullback position in the New South Wales squad.
