Final Thoughts:

Game ResultBroncos: medium confidence. So many different things are going on with this game. This is the second game between these sides since the coaches swapped clubs, and related to that, will the Broncos should be ‘up for it’ after they had their pants pulled down by the Rabbitohs earlier in the season. Speaking of coaches, you've also got Anthony Seibold publicly bickering with the Souths assistant coach Jason Demetriou (no doubt with Wayne Bennett winding him up). Then you've got the player angle, with the Broncos losing Tevita Pangai Jnr and Jake Turpin, and the Rabbitohs expected to lose Sam Burgess. Having said all that, we're going with the Broncos here. Aside from home ground advantage, they got the better form coming into this game, a superior pack in our view and potentially plenty of motivation. They are outgunned in the halves, but if their forwards can get the better of the Rabbitohs, that disadvantage should be nullified.
With The StartBroncos -1.5: medium confidence. See above.
Game TotalUnder 37.5: low to medium confidence. The Broncos have trended to the under this season, with 12/21 of their games going below the total. The Rabbitohs on the other hand have trended to the over, with 12/21 games exceeding the game total, but that is less pronounced in the last ten games where it has happened only four times. The Broncos attack may be impended a little with Jake Turpin out, while the Rabbitohs couldn’t cross the stripe last week against the Bulldogs. Hard to see a barrage of points.
For An InterestMargin / total double, Broncos 1-12 / 30 or less points, for a couple of dollars.
