NRL Tips – Sharks v Storm – Round 17 2022

NRL Betting Tips

Melbourne are missing some key players due to Origin but still look ready to bounceback in a mouth-watering clash with Cronulla.

Best Bet


Melbourne don’t tend to put two horrid performances together and after last week’s debacle they look primed to bounce back even without stars Cameron Munster and Harry Grant.

Though the Storm’s depth has undoubtedly taken a hit, they maintain a formidable spine of Papenhuyzen-Hughes-Smith with Meaney to chime in at No.6. Cronulla got the job done against Canterbury and Gold Coast but have hardly looked impressive in doing so.

One of the top angles to play is being with the Storm off a loss. They are 12-6 against the spread off a loss and 13-6 against the number off conceding 20-plus. This is a huge bounceback spot after Craig Bellamy reportedly delivered a spray for the ages at halftime.

When layering in the Storm have covered 27 of 39 off scoring 30-plus and they cover at 65% away from AAMI and the dominant record Melbourne have over Cronulla with five straight wins, four of which have been by 12-plus, then Melbourne are the play.

Ryan Papenhuyzen Try/Jahrome Hughes Try
Same Game Multi

Ryan Papenhuyzen has five tries in five games against the Sharks and is arguably the most potent tryscorer in the premiership with 47 tries in 51 starts.

Jahrome Hughes has nine tries in 13 games and will be required to do plenty of running.

Value Bet

Brandon Smith
To Score A Try

Brandon Smith loves having a crack or two when he gets to wear the No.9 and the forecast wet weather is only going to increase the number of times the talented Kiwi international darts from dummy half. Smith has 11 tries in 36 games as a starting hooker.
