NRL R7: Brisbane Broncos v Canberra Raiders preview

The Brisbane Broncos will head into their NRL clash against the Canberra Raiders at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night as heavy favourites with online bookmakers.

The Broncos have been priced at -277.78 to win with NRL betting sites, while the Raiders are at +210 and not without claims following their upset win over the same team at the same ground last year.

The Broncos have won two of their last three games, with their one loss being a narrow two-point defeat against the Storm in Melbourne.

In the Raiders’ last two matches, they have belted the Eels and secured a controversial golden-point win over the Titans in Canberra.

Broncos coach Kevin Walters has named an unchanged line-up following last week’s win over the Dolphins.

Raiders coach Ricky Stuart has been forced to make one change, with Zac Hosking ruled out due to a shoulder injury. Ata Mariota will start in the second row, with Simi Sasagi named on the bench.

Odds have fluctuated for this match throughout the week, with punters clearly remembering the Raiders delivered the Broncos their first loss of the season at Suncorp at a very similar time last season.

Since that match, the Broncos have gone on to win nine home matches in a row, and they’ve covered the line in their last 11 matches as favourites with a rest advantage.

Broncos v Raiders betting picks

The Raiders’ form early this season has been solid. Nevertheless, the Broncos will be expected to put on a show in front of their home crowd again and cover the 7.5-point line at -109.89 with online bookies.

The Broncos have been dominant at home in recent times, winning both halves in four of their last five matches. This side will take an early lead and never surrender it. That sort of form is hard to ignore, and there is decent value in backing Brisbane to win both halves (-129.87).

Broncos centre Selwyn Cobbo’s strong form to start the season was rewarded with a tryscoring double against the Dolphins. This should strike fear into the Raiders, as he’s also scored in each of his last three matches against them. Taking on the smaller Matthew Timoko should allow Cobbo to add to his try tally (+125).
