Broncos v Roosters NRL R1 preview

The second game of the NRL Las Vegas double-header this Sunday will feature the Sydney Roosters and the Brisbane Broncos.

The Broncos will be looking to start their 2024 season off strongly in hopes of a possible return to the NRL Grand Final to extract revenge on the Penrith Panthers after their heart-wrenching loss last year.

Ezra Mam, Brendan Piakura and Jordan Riki have all been named to play this weekend despite carrying minor injuries into the the start of the season.

The Sydney Roosters will be without veteran enforcer Jared Waerea-Hargreaves (suspension) and new winger Dominic Young (neck) as they look to return to premiership glory.

Broncos v Roosters NRL R1 predictions

Despite losing five of their last six matches in round one, the Broncos have been backed from as long as +215 into -166.67 with online bookmakers. The 2023 runners-up appear much stronger across the outside backs and forwards, which makes them deserving favourites to win this match.

Selwyn Cobbo will begin this season as the full-time left centre for the Brisbane Broncos and will take on the injury-plagued Billy Smith. Playing in the centres, Cobbo should have more opportunities with the ball in space to isolate his defender one-on-one and use his incredible upper-body strength to beat them. The Broncos are expected to have plenty of attacking possessions, and +200 is great value for Cobbo to cross the try line at some stage.

The playing field at Allegiant Stadium is a metre narrower than a standard rugby league ground, and that could effect the way each team uses its flanks. As both sides like to target their wingers through the air, they may find scoring on the edges more difficult than usual. Expect this one to go under 39.5 total match points at -111.11 with Unibet.
