The Grand Final preview is set to be a captivating affair as the Storm and Panthers battle for top spot on the premiership ladder in a brilliant final act of the Saturday Magic Round slate.
Melbourne +2.5 ($1.85)
Melbourne may have lost Ryan Papenhuyzen to injury for an extended period of time but this line is deeply insulting to a Melbourne Storm team that has broken all kinds of records across the opening nine rounds. The Storm are a better team than the Panthers. They should be favoured.
Melbourne are playing in rarefied air and they hold form. They have covered 11 of 13 off a win of 30-plus. They are 27-11 against the number off scoring 30. They are 39-20 against the number away from AAMI.
The Storm have also historically dominated this matchup, winning 20 of 25 and going 15-7 against the spread in 22 meetings since 2008.
Penrith are at full strength but have covered just 4 of 12 on the road off a loss and 7 of 20 away from Penrith Stadium when favoured.
Melbourne have a statement to make and will win this game.

Same Game Multi
Justin Olam Try/Jahrome Hughes Try ($13.75)
Justin Olam has scored six tries in his last five games and is in blockbusting form and currently sits in the Top 10 for tackle breaks.
Jahrome Hughes has seven tries this year and has scored six in the last five games.
Melbourne 13+ ($6.00)
Melbourne’s last six wins have all been by 13 or more with the last three games being 162-18. The Panthers are significantly better than any of that opposition but they did roll the Sharks by 16 prior to that run. Melbourne are relentless and will be looking to make the Panthers hurt.
