Brisbane Broncos vs New Zealand Warriors Predictions and Betting Tips
🏈 NRL Semi-Final Match Preview
⏰ 23 September 2023 - 19:50 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Suncorp Stadium (Brisbane)
Brisbane and the Warriors will clash in a huge preliminary final on Saturday night at Suncorp Stadium, with a spot in the decider up for grabs.
The Broncos are chasing their first Grand Final since 2017 and first title in 17 years. The Warriors are contesting their first prelim since 2011 as they bid for a maiden trophy after entering the competition in 1995.
Brisbane have built an excellent season after last year's late capitulation, winning 8 of their last 9 including the 26-0 finals demolition of Melbourne. The week off has allowed coach Kevin Walters to name an unchanged 17.
The Warriors took the hard route after losing their opening final 32-6 to Penrith. But they bounced back impressively by thrashing the Knights 40-10 in Auckland behind returning star Shaun Johnson.
However, the Warriors will likely need to find another level to challenge Brisbane's electric outfit on their intimidating home deck.
The Broncos have a perfect scenario to book a long-awaited Grand Final berth in front of their passionate home fans.

💡 Match Prediction:
Brisbane Broncos to win. The Broncos have been in excellent form, especially at home, while the Warriors have been patchy. Brisbane's well-rounded squad gives them a significant edge.
Betting Tip: Broncos -10.5
Given Brisbane's strong record covering this line in recent wins, combined with the game being at Suncorp, the Broncos should comfortably cover the -10.5 spread.
Tip: Under 44.5 total points
These teams' low-scoring head-to-head record suggests we'll see another grind. With finals intensity, points could be at a premium.
Broncos to win Broncos -10.5 Under 44.5 points
Brisbane have too much firepower across the park and will be extremely tough to beat at home. Their defence should hold the Warriors down in another low-scoring affair.
