The Storm have their fingertips on the minor premiership as they look to make it 19 wins in a row on Thursday against the Titans.

Melbourne has also carved out a healthy six-game winning streak over the Gold Coast dating back to 2018, and it is no surprise to find the premiership favourites laying a healthy -22.5 points at the line this week.

Craig Bellamy’s side had its hands full against the Raiders last week in a rollercoaster second half, but like all great sides, the Storm managed to capitalize on some costly Canberra penalties to put the game to bed in the late stages.

The Titans, on the other hand, come into this game looking to bounce-back from a humbling loss to the Rabbitohs.

Three consecutive wins prior sees the Titans still inside the eight, but there’s no doubt this is another tough challenge against a Storm outfit that leads the league in all major scoring categories.

Gold Coast coach Justin Holbrook should feel good about the fact Phillip Sami is a chance to return this week, but the fact his side ranks fifth in points conceded is an obvious concern.

The Storm beat the Titans 20-14 in Round 13. Another win for Melbourne will allow them to match the NRL all-time best 19-game winning streak set by the Eastern Suburbs Roosters in 1975. 

Verdict

Given their recent history and the Titans’ questionable defence, backing the Storm to cover seems the only logical play.
