The Sea Eagles have a strong head to head record going for themselves over the Cronulla Sharks. Will they be able to taste a bit of success over them once again when they meet on Sunday?

Both teams go into this fixture at the Central Coast Stadium on the back of a win in the last round of action.

But the better form, without question has been there from the Sea Eagles who are favourites to take this.

Manly Sea Eagles Preview – Manly seeking three wins on the bounce

The Sea Eagles collected a good 14-6 win over the Raiders last weekend to post back to back Premiership wins. They are now sat at W4 L2 for the season.

It has been four wins in their last five games played however, so they have been on the rise.

The Sea Eagles are one of two sides in the top 11 of the ladder yet to break the 100-points barrier of points.

They have tallied 95 so far in their six games for an average of 15 per fixture. That’s two shy of the 17 per game average from Sunday’s opponents, the Sharks.

This does have the look of being a match where the margin of victory for either is not going to be huge.

But there is a notable difference between the two teams when it comes to their respective defensive records.

The Manly Sea Eagles have conceded an average of 12 points per game against them this season, while the Sharks are up at 21 per game on average.

Because the head to head form is with Manyl, a Sea Eagles -4 handicap for 11/10 looks bags of value* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 23:30 GMT on Thursday, 25th June 2020).

Our betting prediction:
Manly 6-10 Winning margin

So let’s take a look at the head to head for Sea Eagles v Sharks NRL betting. It’s all positive for Manly who have won the last four meetings on the bounce.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg however.

They have lost just one of their last dozen fixtures against the Cronulla Sharks.

Three of their last four wins over them have been by a margin of at least 10 points.


Cronulla Sharks Preview – Can the Sharks take a bite out of the Sea Eagles?

The Cronulla Sharks are on a W2 L4 record this season. But the positive from that poor return is that their two wins have both come inside their last three matches.

Those victories happened against the Cowboys and the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are second from bottom in the ladder, while the Cowboys are level on points with the Sharks presently.

So they haven’t really gotten the better of any of the top-half of the ladder teams this season.

Justifiably they are going as underdogs here with the weight of the head to head going against them.

The Sharks have made four previous trips to the Central Coast Stadium. From those they have won twice.

But then the Sea Eagles have secured 13 wins in 16 fixtures at the venue since 1998.

It is 11th place in the ladder that the Sharks ended round 6 of action in that one. The defeats for the Sharks this season have been by an average margin of 8 points.

Cronulla Sharks have been trailing at the half time break by an 18-4 scoreline in their last two against Manly. They have only been leading at the break twice in their last twelve against them.

The big difference between these two is in that defensive area. Cronulla have conceded 126 points in this campaign, compared to the 75 that the Sea Eagles have shipped.

Breaking that down in averages, that is 12 points per game conceded on average by the Sea Eagles and 21 on average by the Sharks. Cronulla could be up against it once again.


Manly Sea Eagles vs Cronulla Sharks Betting Advice

We would have to side fully with the bookmakers in terms of picking a winner in this match. That is the Manly Sea Eagles who totally boss the head to head.

They have been tighter in defence than the Sharks have been as well, so they are likely to put the two points in the bag.

But the bookies have them at odds-on and not a great stack of value, so it is to the handicaps we have to look.
