The Parramatta Eels took their first hit of the campaign last weekend. They were comfortably beaten by the Roosters.

Despite that the Eels do stay stop of the ladder, but there are plenty breathing down their neck now.

The Raiders start round seven of the season sat in fifth place in the table, just two back of the Eels. So this could be a huge move for them if they could pull off an underdog success.

The Raiders will likely have to be at their defensive best however.

Parramatta Eels Preview – Can the Eels recover from last weekend’s blow?

In a tough game against the Roosters last weekend, the Eels came up short. It was a 10-24 defeat that they suffered, the first of the season.

After a blistering start to the campaign, there were signs that they were just starting to find the going a little tougher. That is despite them winning their first five games of the campaign.

Tight wins over the Sea Eagles and the Panthers saw them pushed, but then came that breaking point against the Roosters. So this game for them, is all about what response that they have.

It has been some superb defensive displays which has really kept the eels going this season. They have conceded a league-low 64 points in matches across the campaign.

So let’s look at some margins. The averaging winning margin for the Eels this season is 16.7 points. That’s only the third best winning margin of the top-four teams in the ladder.

Our betting prediction:
Eels 6-10 winning margin

(odds taken 04:00 GMT, Wednesday 24th June)


The Eels have won all designated home games in this season’s campaign. Last season they traded home wins with the Raiders, taking a 6-point margin success on home turf.

Their victory over the Raiders in the last meeting snapped a poor run of five straight league defeats that they had been on against the Canberra side.

The Eels are 6/4 to cover a -6 handicap, that’s how tight this game is likely to be* (odds taken 04:00 GMT, Wednesday 24th June)


Canberra Raiders Preview – Can Raiders re-assert dominance over Eels?

So with the current head to head record going in favour of Canberra, can the Raiders bag themselves a big two-points in this one? The Raiders are sitting 5th in the ladder currently.

They are the lowest scoring side in the top five as well.

Notably they have not scored a try in the final 20 minutes of a match since round three.

The Raiders are still considered title contenders this season, but they look as if they are in need of a little tweak. Especially having suffered a loss last weekend.

They had to take a defeat on the chin as they went down 6-14 against Manly. Once again they couldn’t rally themselves for any kind of late score in a fixture.

Manly weren’t at full strength in that fixture either because of injuries.

So that left the Raiders W1 L2 in their last three fixtures played. They have just had some wobbles and it wouldn’t likely take much for them to turn the corner.

But then there really isn’t anything between themselves and the Eels in terms of average points scored and conceded per match in this campaign.

Canberra Raiders are going to be up against it at the Bankwest Stadium. The Parramatta Eels have won five of their last six games there. Canberra are sending an unchanged side out.

Overall this season the Raiders are only ranked 9th in attack. It has to be put into context that they are facing the best defense in the league currently.

Can they overcome and reassert a bit of dominance once again over the Eels?


Parramatta Eels vs Canberra Raiders Betting Advice

Canberra have lost only two of their last nine games against the Eels. That is some impressive head to head form. Their last two successes against them have been big ones.

Those were 19-0 and 18-2 successes. So is that enough for us to lean towards them for the win? No.

The Eels arguably have a better pack and their defence, despite falling short last week against the Roosters, have been superb this season.

  • Parramatta Eels are W5 L1 this season in the NRL
  • Parramatta Eels have the best defensive record this season

With the Raiders not having quite been on the money in terms of attacking prowess in this campaign, the Eels have to be favoured to get the two points.
