Brisbane Big Time Favorite

Best Against Worst

The Brisbane Broncos are the best team in the NRL, and now they face the worst team in the Wests Tigers.

That is reflected with NRL lines, which have the Broncos at -16½. It’s one of the biggest lines with the sportsbook so far in 2023, so it’s not expecting a thrilling contest.

Tigers Not Yet Off the Mark

The Tigers have long been the worst team in the NRL, and they haven’t done anything to change that opinion.

They are winless from four games in 2023, including a 22-10 loss to the Gold Coast Titans, and a 24-12 loss to the Melbourne Storm last week. It’s not good enough for the Tigers, who are close to being kicked out of the NRL.

They’re not a profitable club for owners or bettors, hence the big sports betting line available against the Broncos. However, recent success against Brisbane works in their favor.

They are 2-0 in their last two against the Broncos, but those wins came when the Broncos were a different side to what we’re seeing this year. However, it could give the Tigers enough confidence to keep the game close.

Assistant coach Benji Marshall tried to get Mitchell Pearce signed to the club, which shows how desperate they are, according to NRL news.

“I don’t really have much to say. Benji called me yesterday and I told him I’m contracted to Catalans,” Pearce said.

“We are top of the table and I want to win a comp in Super League. That’s pretty much it.”

Broncos Bulldozing Opponents

The Broncos have looked dominant in four wins, including beating the likes of the Penrith Panthers, North Queensland Cowboys, St. George Dragons, and Dolphins.

They were able to handle the pressure last week when beating the Dolphins 18-12 with a late intercept try. It was an impressive finish to the game, but not unsurprising, given their level of talent.

With players like Reece Walsh, Kotoni Staggs, and Selwyn in the back line, the Broncos are such a scoring power it’s not funny. That’s the concern facing the Tigers, who don’t have a stout defense at the best of times.

We haven’t mentioned their forwards, including Payne Haas and Patrick Carrigan. Both are State of Origin representatives, so online gambling markets are right to have full confidence in the Broncos beating the Tigers, and by a handsome margin.

Winning by 14 or more points is never easy in the NRL, but the Broncos can pile on the points quickly, just as quickly as the Tigers can give them up.

Broncos vs Tigers Head-to-Head

The Tigers have had recent success against the Broncos, winning 32-18 and 42-24 in their two most recent meetings.

However, the Broncos have a 21-9-1 lifetime advantage, which stands out.
