Sea Eagles vs Knights NRL betting preview

Two teams who came off embarrassing losses last start will be looking to set the record straight and remain in touch with the top four in the 2020 NRL Premiership.

The Newcastle Knights endured a horror first half in Townsville, while Manly were blown away by Cronulla either side of half time on the Central Coast.

A huge boost for the Sea Eagles is returning to Lottoland, where they have an excellent record historically.

Without Tom Trbojevic, Manly are the outsiders at $2 and change after starting at $1.90 when betting opened.

Newcastle’s good start to the season has earned them favouritism, coming in as short as $1.68 during the week after also starting at $1.90.

While the Manly Sea Eagles showed their limitations without their star fullback, it’s important to remember one statistic.

In their 32-year history, the Knights have only won one game on the Northern Beaches without Andrew Johns in the lineup.

It is the one ground in the NRL they have always struggled at, and that makes the $3.40 on offer for a Manly 1-12 win look very tantalising.

Newcastle looked indecisive in their edge defence last start, so the returning Moses Suli ($21) and left winger Jorge Taufua ($12) are the pick of the first tryscorer options for Manly.

Given how dependent the Knights are on their left-side attack and the Swiss cheese defence Manly produced against Cronulla on their right, Bradman Best is another good chance to cross the stripe first at $15 with Sportsbet.

The over/under line is set at 42.5 and given the excellent weather forecast, many punters will be taking the overs in what promises to be a sensational Sunday afternoon of rugby league.
