Storm vs Bulldogs NRL betting preview

This appears to be a massive mismatch on paper, but can the Canterbury Bulldogs actually make a game of it?

Here is a stat that will blow even the most hardcore NRL fan’s mind: the Melbourne Storm have a winning record against every club except Canterbury-Bankstown.

The ledger stands at 21 wins to the Doggies and 20 for the Storm, so there is a weird piece of history on the line in a clash that otherwise lacks any obvious implications.

Melbourne were pushed hard last week by a gallant Knights outfit but had too much class when it mattered.

Canterbury’s last three weeks have been promising. They found a ridiculous way to lose to St George Illawarra, had a great win over Newcastle and almost pulled off a miraculous comeback against Parramatta.

The Bulldogs may be paying $6 to cause the upset, but perhaps taking the Storm 1-12 at $3.10 could be a way of squeezing some value out of this contest.

For the third year in a row, Canterbury have entered that strange phase where they get super competitive when the season is already over. They’ll fight hard and may catch the Storm off their game without the best player in history, Cameron Smith.

The line for the game is 13.5, and given the form line, one may be tempted to take the Bulldogs +11.5 at $2.10 odds.

The Storm are overwhelming favourites in the first tryscorer betting, with both Suliasi Vunivalu and Josh Addo-Carr paying between $6 and $8 at most NRL betting sites.

The outsider for Melbourne you may want to look at is the Kiwi hooker Brandon Smith, who loves a dart close to the line and is extremely hard to stop. At $19, it could be very profitable and a lot of fun.
