Join us for the 2018 NRL Grand Final

This is it. The 2018 NRL Grand Final is here and no question that it’s a tight call with the bookies just shading favouritism to Melbourne Storm in the betting market.

The Roosters have slowly fought their way to the summit this season, they had some luck along the way, but who hasn't at this stage of the game?  However, they’ve improved dramatically over the last couple of months, they've just beaten the South Sydney Rabbitohs last weekend. Brilliant!

There are concerning things that the Roosters will have to deal with, none more so than the prospect of a Cronkless team. Cooper Cronk really does seem like a big longshot to be able to take the field due to a shoulder injury and he's been given until kick off to prove his fitness. Can they keep it going without him?

Better news for Melbourne Storm fans after fullback Billy Slater successfully challenged his shoulder-charge suspension and has been cleared to play in the Grand Final.

Melbourne have been dominant enough in Sydney for the ANZ stadium not to be an issue, they have won eight of their 12 games on the road this season, but they are only 4-7 against the line.

Tip: Back Melbourne Storm @ 1.67

Josh Addo-Carr

Total Points line has been set at 32.5 points and the starkest indicator in this market is that backing the Under has been a profitable play in games involving either of these two teams this season.

We've also dived into the numbers for the past seven Grand Finals and the Under has also saluted in five. That does a pretty good job of convincing us to back the Under.

Josh Addo-Carr and Latrell Mitchell are joint favourites in the First Try Scorer betting market and both are priced at $9. 

Blake Ferguson is on the second line of betting at $10 along with Daniel Tupou and Suliasi Vunivalu, while the two full-backs, Billy Slater and James Tedesco, are $12.

It’s up to you if you wish to join us here but in light of the fact that Josh Addo-Carr scored first try in the Grand Final last year and with his big game contribution this season we are happy to add the Melbourne Storm winger to our bet slip.

Choose your side. Sit Back. Enjoy.
