After a shock last play loss to the Knights, Melbourne will be looking to get back into the winner’s circle when they host the decimated Sharks.
Melbourne have been dominant in recent times against the Sharks, having won the past 5 clashes played at this ground.
They have also won 7 of the past 8 matches at all venues, with the Sydney side recording just one victory since 2009.
Interestingly low scoring encounters have ensued, with only 1 of the last 8 matches at this ground exceeding 40pts, and just 1 of the last 10 at all venues exceeding the same mark.
I have no doubt Melbourne will be winning this, however they may take their foot off the gas at some point and it’s debatable if Cronulla have many/any points in them.
I’m going to go with the under in the Total match points market, but also wouldn’t put anyone off having a sneaky wager on Cronulla not to score a try.
