NRL Grand Final: Storm v Sharks: Best Bets

Wed, Sep 28, 9:49am by Christopher Duffy

The NRL Grand Final between the Cronulla Sharks and Melbourne Storm is shaping up to be a scintillating contest. As the Sharks chase their first ever Premiership the world of rugby league is looking for a possible fairy tale finish to this season. Despite many detractors of the Cronulla club supporters would be hard pushed not to have a slight hope that they can overcome the favourites, the Melbourne Storm, and claim victory.

The Storm are priced with Sportsbet at $1.83 and continue to appear to be the best value bet for this year’s Grand Final. Their wealth of experience throughout the side at this stage of the competition and under the spotlight gives them a slight edge. Cronulla will have to overturn a price of $2.00 if they are to be the ones crowned at NRL Premiers.

Whichever side is victorious in this match can expect a tough battle to get across the finish line. The addition of a margin to a win for either side highlights the expected close nature of the game. A Little Win of 1-12 points with Sportsbet currently stands as clear favourite with the Storm priced at $3.00 and the Sharks at $3.10. It will take a herculean effort from both sides if they are to give themselves the cushion of a 13+ point Big Win priced at $4.50 for the Storm and $5.00 for the Sharks.

The Storm looked continually exposed out wide on defence throughout their Preliminary Final against the Canberra Raiders. Meaning that Cronulla will again look to inflict damage in that area to gain the advantage. With this in mind Sportsbet’s price for Valentine Holmes to score appear to be a good call. He is at $2.10 to score a try at anytime and $9.50 to be the first tryscorer of the match.

A Win-Try combo, however, may well be best put with a Melbourne Storm player. In his last game for the club before he moves to rugby union, Marika Koroibete is bound to be putting in the hard yards. It was his break against Canberra that ultimately set up the closing stages victory after the sin binning and he will again look to exploit the space. For him to score and the Storm to win is priced at $3.25, with a Cronulla win despite him scoring at $4.50.

When it comes to the Clive Churchill Medal, it is even tougher to call than the winning team in the Grand Final. It is the experienced men of Melbourne who head the prices with Sportsbet as favourites to claim the honour. Even in defeat Cooper Cronk and Cameron Smith are capable of putting in man of the match performances. They are both priced at $6.00 to win the Clive Churchill but will want the Premiership more than the personal glory.

It all comes down to this now. For so long this season these two sides were vying with each other for the Minor Premiership it seems right they meet in the Grand Final. With everything on the line who can produce the good on the biggest stage.
