Knights vs Sea Eagles NRL betting preview
This game always brings out the old ARL diehards, and it’s another Sunday afternoon clash with plenty on the line for both clubs.
For the Newcastle Knights, it’s about winning consecutive games for the first time since round two on the back of a positive outing against the Wests Tigers.
For the Manly Sea Eagles, two points on the road would keep them alive in the 2020 NRL finals race for another week.
Without Tom Trbojevic they have struggled to generate enough points to win games, and their struggling defence has conceded 24 or more points in each of their three straight losses.
Conversely, Newcastle have finally figured out how to score points, running up 44 on the Tigers in what was their highest total in seven years.
They come into this clash as the $1.40 favourites, and the general consensus is they will take care of business.

At $3.25, Manly are still missing the aforementioned Trbojevic as well as Addin Fonua-Blake, which will once again test their depth severely.
Newcastle get Daniel Saifiti back into their starting line-up, which forces his twin brother back to the interchange.
If you like the Knights, taking them at the -8 start can get you as much as $2 at some NRL bookmakers.
Kalyn Ponga carved up the Tigers, and this week he is paying $13 to back up his first tryscoring efforts and $9.50 to score a double.
The man who is overdue is Lachlan Fitzgibbon. Once a scoring weapon, he is sitting at $20 and could burst through a hole off the mercurial Ponga.
With a win the Knights keep alive their slim hopes of a top-four finish, so they also have that carrot to chase.
