Manly will be looking to avenge a Round 1 defeat when they travel to Melbourne to face the struggling Storm on Saturday evening.
The Sea Eagles led 22-0 at half time on that occasion, before capitulating in the second half to eventually lose in Golden Point, and they will be desperate to get one back on their bitter rivals here.
Unfortunately their task has been made more difficult by the loss of a number of key players here, and this presents the Storm with a great opportunity to turn their struggling season around.
Melbourne have lost just 2 of 10 clashes with Manly at home, however they are currently a shadow of their former self, conceding nearly 24pts per game and having the 3rd worst defence in the competition.
Melbourne will be eager to gain some momentum heading into the Origin period, and if they are any chance of mounting a serious challenge this season, should account for an under strength Manly side here.
Verdict: Melbourne Win at $1.50 with
