NRL Tips – Storm v Eels – Round 3 2022

NRL Betting Tips

Harry Grant has Covid and betting has gone one way but Melbourne are primed for a big showing against the Eels.

Best Bet

Melbourne -4.5 ($1.90)

Melbourne-Parramatta games have tended to be low-scoring affairs and the Eels have won three of their last four against the Storm but this is a strong game to play Melbourne laying the small start.

The Storm have covered six of seven at AAMI Park and they cover at 60% off a win. Melbourne really bounce back off a poor attacking showing too with 10 covers in their last 15 off scoring 16 or fewer.

Parramatta are a poor road team and even poorer as an underdog.

Harry Grant is out for the Storm but Brandon Smith may well return while the Eels are looking very thin out wide.

Same Game Multi

Ryan Papenhuyzen Try/Jahrome Hughes Try ($7.50)

Ryan Papenhuyzen has four tries in six games against Parramatta and has 32 tries in 42 starts, a scintillating try rate.

Jahrome Hughes has 28 tries in his last 65 games and he is running the ball very well this year. Against an ordinary Eels defence, he can have a field day.

Value Bet

Xavier Coates First Try Scorer ($8.00)

Xavier Coates has scored 19 tries in 34 appearances and has looked a different player with two tries in two appearances for the Storm. He gets a very good matchup this week against Waqa Blake playing out-of-position.
