Rabbitohs vs Storm NRL betting preview

They finally did it!

The South Sydney Rabbitohs defeated a top team for the first time in 2020 and in doing so made the rest of the competition stand up and take notice, thrashing Parramatta 38-0 in what was one of the finest attacking displays in many years.

You know what would really put you in the NRL Premiership race? Taking on the Melbourne Storm without Latrell Mitchell and beating them despite being the $2.60 outsiders.

Melbourne are the $1.55 favourites and have a much stronger side than the one who lost 14-0 to Parramatta in their last visit to Sydney.

While they are still missing the likes of Kenny Bromwich and Suliasi Vunivalu, they look to have unearthed yet another Fijian sensation in Isaac Lumelume.

Souths will get Dane Gagai back at centre and Alex Johnston will fill the big void left by Mitchell, but he has proven to be a capable fullback in the past.

One area where Souths definitely have the advantage is on the interchange bench with the likes of Mark Nicholls and Liam Knight providing fantastic service.

Don’t discount the impact someone like the Storm’s Nicho Hynes can have in a game like this if it goes down to the wire like many expect.

Hynes’ versatility could prove an important factor, as reflected in his $13 price to be the last tryscorer.

The Rabbitohs to win by 1-12 points at $3.75 looks to be an enticing price, but the $3.10 for Melbourne in the same market will be hard to go past.

The professionalism and consistency of the Storm has been on full display in 2020, and the loss of Mitchell for the season could have a huge effect in this contest.

If you’re after a first tryscorer for either side, the $21 on offer for Cody Walker will take no convincing and the $13 for Ryan Papenhuyzen falls into the same category.
