Eels vs Sea Eagles NRL betting preview
Saturday’s NRL Premiership clash at Bankwest Stadium is comfortably the game of the round in what should be an unreal edition of one of the sport’s best rivalries.
For all of their brilliance in attack, it is the Parramatta Eels defence that is doing the business in 2020.
They have kept their first three opponents to a combined 14 points, which is a new record for the NRL era.
While it’s important to remember Parra have played the Bulldogs, Titans and an under-strength Broncos side, they can only compete with what is in front of them.
The Manly Sea Eagles present a huge step up in class for the Eels and the game will be a lot closer than the odds suggest.
Des Hasler sides thrive on flying under the radar and he has the Sea Eagles perfectly placed heading into this clash.

Expect the Trbojevic brothers to combine with Daly Cherry-Evans regularly on set plays as they look to stretch the Eels out wide to generate points.
Manly’s props in Martin Taupau and Addin Fonua-Blake will go toe-to-toe with Junior Paulo and Reagan Campbell-Gillard to establish dominance in the middle.
It will be a slugfest in the centre of the park, but whoever gets the chocolates in that battle will go a long way to determining the victor.
The over/under total for the match is set at 40.5, which may cause plenty of headaches for punters who enjoy same-game multi bets.
Tom Trbojevic at $12 with Neds is terrific value in the first try scorer market considering his unbelievable performance last start.
On the flip side, the Eels pairing of Maika Sivo and Blake Ferguson are also good value at $9.50 and $10 respectively.
Sivo is almost certain in the anytime scorers market having crossed the line 24 times in his 28 games with the Eels, while Ferguson has scored at a strike rate of better than 50% across his 214-game career.
Eels vs Sea Eagles margin betting
Manly’s sensational attack will give Parramatta’s defence all it can handle, so the $3.40 for the Sea Eagles 1-12 must be considered.

The quality of attacking outlets on both sides makes this a tough one to call, but the extra few bucks on ‘Tommy Turbo’ gives him the edge over Parra’s star wingers.

Maika Sivo’s scoring record speaks for itself. Backing the Fijian flyer to cross for a try at any time might be the easiest decision you will make this week.
