"Without a doubt, I would say, one or two of those guys are going to be playing Test cricket in the next couple of months, so it's a very real opportunity for them to put their names forward."
Broad is confident the early-arrival strategy will work for him and his fellow bowlers.
"We've had two fantastic games as a bowling group together. Now it's all about preparation for that first Test match - and I see going up to Brisbane early as a great opportunity to get used to conditions," stated Broad.
"We're full of confidence as a bowling unit. It's all about mental and physical preparation for the first Test match now."
With all four back-up bowlers due to play, England's other selection options are limited - but Eoin Morgan may be given his first opportunity of the tour if they choose to rest a batsman.
Meanwhile, Australia A have brought in bowler Clint McKay to replace injured Mitchell Starc for the game in Hobart.
They had already lost batsman Shaun Marsh to injury, and he has been replaced by Ed Cowan.
Chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch said: "Clint has been a regular member around Australia's limited-overs squads for some time and he will be looking forward to this challenge."
England have made an unbeaten start to their tour.
They beat Western Australia by six wickets in their opening match, before drawing their second game against South Australia.
