Eels looking electric at the top of the ladder

The Eels did come out of the starting blocks slowly this season in terms of only posting an 8-2 win over the Bulldogs in their opener. But with the ring rust out of the way, they have not looked back since.

With a 46-6 win over the Titans and then a breeze past the Broncos to the tune of 34-6 last weekend on return from lockdown, the Eels are red hot. They are the second-highest points-scorers in this season’s ladder so far as we head to round four.

The top individual points scorer for the Eels is Mitchell Moses with 36, and only the Roosters’ Kyle Flanagan has more. The Eels and the Sea Eagles traded wins in last season’s ladder, both claiming a home win.

Our betting prediction:
Eels 1-12 winning margin

(odds taken 21:17 GMT, Tuesday 26th May)

The Eels have won eight of the last ten meetings with the Sea Eagles, so that’s a heavy trend there. The two losses in that sequence were inside the last four meetings, but both were away from home.

So far this season it has been a 24.7 point winning margin on average that the Eels have produced in their games. This will easily be their biggest test of the season so far. Are they up for the task? The bookmakers think so.


Can Manly stop the Eels in their tracks?

It has been an upward swing for the Manly Sea Eagles. They were fantastic last weekend in picking up a 32-6 victory over the Bulldogs.

The followed up on a win over the Roosters by a one point margin just before the lockdown. The Sea Eagles had started the season with a heavy reverse against the Melbourne Storm.

So they do have a bit of momentum going now and they were inspired by fullback Tom Trbojevic last weekend. Will he be able to keep the levels high and cause the Eels some problems?

Parramatta Eels vs Manly Warringah Sea Eagles Betting Advice

The Sea Eagles looked very sharp against the Bulldogs, but they should be reined in a bit in this contest. They have struggled across the recent head to head with Parramatta and we expect that trend to continue.

The Parramatta Eels do look untouchable at the moment as they top the ladder. They have really been on the gas in their last two run outs and picked up in top form after the lockdown.
