With the finals starting next week, Friday will be the last chance for the Brisbane Broncos  to sneak into the eight when they face the Melbourne Storm .

The Storm may be having an up and down season, but punters still see them as one of the powerhouses. TattsBet had them at $8 to win the premiership at the start of the season, and apart from a few weeks when they drifted past the $20 mark; they haven’t wavered, heading into Friday’s clash at $9. Melbourne has a fantastic record against the Broncos, having won nine of their last ten meetings, including seven straight, and one courageous punter has put his faith in the Melbournians, placing $20,000 on the home side. Since Marika Koroibete signed mid-season, he has been one of the Storm’s stand out players, scoring six tries in eight games. Since three of those have been the first try of the game, Koroibete is not bad odds to pin another one on the board.

The Broncos have been one loss away from dropping out of the finals over the last two weeks. Lucky for them, they have won both those games, beating the Dragons last week 30-22 and the Knights the week before 48-6. But the Broncos have a massive challenge ahead of them, given the fact they haven't beaten the Storm at AAMI Park in four years. The only big change for the Broncos is Todd Lowrie coming into the side for the suspended Sam Thaiday.

The Storm are again heavy favourites, just like they were in Round 20, but the value is still there for the Broncos, and majority of the money is for the visitors.
