NRL: Broncos to edge Roosters blockbuster

Brisbane Broncos and Sydney Roosters clash in a mouthwatering showdown on Friday evening, while Manly Sea Eagles entertain Canberra Raiders.

The Broncos are priced at 4.25 to win the grand final in 2024, the Roosters 9.00, but neither side has hit top form in the early part of the season.

It is a massive game at Suncorp Stadium and, with so much talent on show, it looks sure to live up to expectations.

The Sea Eagles have started well by picking up five wins to take them to fourth spot on the NRL ladder and they are priced at 2.60 to finish the season in the top four.

Next up is a clash with the Raiders, who have slipped to 10th spot after losing the last two games.

Sea Eagles flying high

. What: Manly Sea Eagles v Canberra Raiders
. Where: 4 Pines Park, Sydney
. When: 19:00, Friday 3rd May 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Manly Sea Eagles 1.22, Canberra Raiders 4.35

Manly are in red-hot form after winning three and drawing one in the last four games.

They were impressive as they fought off Parramatta Eels to win 32-18 at 4 Pines Park last Friday night and will be looking to do the same to the Raiders.

The Sea Eagles have been impressing at home this season and have piled on 139 points over the last four games at Brookvale.

Canberra on the other hand have been conceding too many points and suffered a 40-0 loss to the Sharks last weekend. They also leaked 34 against the Broncos the week before.

Ricky Stuart’s side now need to pick themselves up and go again, but Manly has not been a happy hunting ground for them.

Reuben Garrick was on fire against the Eels, scoring two tries and kicking five out of five conversions and he can be backed at 12.00 to score the first try of the game or 2.70 to score at anytime.

Broncos out for Roosters revenge

. What: Brisbane Broncos v Sydney Roosters
. Where: Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane
. When: 21:00, Friday 3rd May 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel, Channel 9
. Odds: Brisbane Broncos 1.45, Sydney Roosters 2.75

These two sides met in the opening week of the season when travelling to Las Vegas and it was the Roosters who came out on top, winning 20-10.

Both teams have been inconsistent so far, with the Broncos winning five from eight, while the Roosters have won four and lost four.

It looks set to be another tight game, with the Broncos priced at 6.00 to win by 6-10 points, while the Roosters are 7.00 to win by 1-5 points.

The Broncos have been in fine form, winning their last six games at Suncorp Stadium, while Selwyn Cobbo has bagged 21 tries in the last 20 games at the venue.

The centre, who returns this week following a shoulder injury, can be backed at 3.25 to score a try at anytime or 15.00 to cross for the first try of the game.

The Broncos are also boosted by the return of Ezra Mam, who has been in great form so far this season and he is 3.70 to score at anytime.
