Comparing the bookmakers live NRL odds we see that currently Brisbane are offered between $1.46 up to $1.50 in the Head to Head market while New Zealand are trading between $2.67 up to $2.87. The Line Handicap is steady amongst the sportsbooks with a line of Broncos -6 Warriors +6 and the early over under total is O/U42.5.
Brisbane: The Broncos are coming off the bye and will be happy to be through the tricky Origin period of the season. Anthony Griffin's side are sitting in 4th place with a 10-6 record having averaged 23.13 points per game while conceding 17.88 for a differential of +5.15 points per game. In recent NRL Results the Broncos have lost to the Sharks (12-16), defeated the Rabbitohs (26-12), lost to the Cowboys (0-12) and beaten the Roosters (40-22). In NRL betting results the Broncos have a 9-6-1 (+$255) record against the line handicap bet and they are -$2.30 against the head to head odds for $100 bets each week.
New Zealand: This will be the Warriors second game in QLD in as many week, having disposed of an under manned Titans outfit last week (32-14). Their assignment this week will no doubt be much more difficult with the Broncos rested from the bye and their Origin stars returning. In other recent results for the Warriors they have had a convincing win over the Cowboys (35-18), a narrow loss to the Sharks (19-20) and a 14 point win over the Panthers (30-16). New Zealand is currently sitting in 8th place with a 8-8 record having averaged 24.25 points per game while allowing an average of 22.25 for a differential of +2. In NRL Line betting results the Warriors are 7-9 (-$235) while against the head to head odds they are -$346.60.
Brisbane v New Zealand History: The last eight regular season games have resulted in 3 wins for Brisbane and 5 wins for New Zealand.
