Best bets below for this one are in!
head to head
May 23rd 4:05pm
The Parramatta Eels host the Manly Sea Eagles as the home team launch into Round 11 with a five-game winning streak as well as an unblemished 2021 home record.
The second-placed Eels will deploy their third-ranked defence against the revived and rejuvenated Manly squad that has been hoisted into form by fullback Tom Trbojevic.
Since his return from injury, the Sea Eagles have surged from last place into finals contention.
Manly, last week, slammed home 50 points on a lamentable Broncos outfit with the effervescent partnership between Trbojevic and jet-propelled winger Jason Saab producing a brace of tries.
This is one of the sternest tests Manly will face this season but it is surely up for the task.
Suggested Bet: Manly Sea Eagles +6.5 at $1.90
first try scorer
Maika Sivo/Jason Saab
Going to side with the biggest try-scoring threats in this game and that is both Maika Sivo for the Parramatta Eels and Jason Saab for the Manly Sea Eagles.
Both Sivo and Saab have thus far scored 10 tries each for their respective teams this season and have been the offensive foundation of their squads.
These are the games where the big names and big players lift another notch and expect this to be exception to the rule.
Even though the pair are at the top of the market, think the current prices are value.
Maika Sivo first try scorer at $7
Jason Saab first try scorer at $11
total points scored
Parramatta’s defence has been absolutely rock solid this season having only conceded 142 points.
The Eels will be aware of the attacking threat posed by the likes of Jason Saab, Tom Trbojevic Reuben Garrick.
This is going to be a hard fought contest with neither giving each other an inch on offence.
With showers forecast for Sunday afternoon, this had the makings of a grind fest.
Doubt this one goes over the 47.5 line set at the moment.
Suggested Bet: Total points scored under 47.5 points at $1.90
