There was a shock for the Parramatta Eels last weekend as they were toppled by the Manly Sea Eagles.

That was just the second loss of the season for the Eels, but it cost them top spot in the ladder.

Will they be able to respond back at the Bankwest Stadium as they welcome the Wests Tigers?

Parramatta Eels Preview – Eels can respond to setback

That was some setback last weekend for the Eels. Parramatta slipped to an 18-22 loss against the Sea Eagles.

That snapped a three match winning streak of league action that they had been on.

The overall record for the Parramatta Eels this season is W8 L2 so they are still in good shape.

They finished round 10 of action one point back of new leaders the Penrith Panthers.

The Eels still boast the best defensive record in the Premiership this season, having only conceded 117 points.

So that’s just an average of 11 points per game against them, whereas the Wests are averaging 17 per game against.

Our betting prediction:
Eels 1-6 winning margin 9/2

Parramatta Eels won both meetings with the Tigers last season convincingly.

It was a 51-6 home success that they took over them during the last campaign.

It is a three match winning streak that Parramatta are currently on against the Tigers and have only lost one of their last six against them.

Three of their last five wins over the Tigers have been by tight margins and we would go that way.

A Parramatta Eels -8 option is at 11/10* (betting odds taken 00:35 GMT Tuesday, 21st July)


Wests Tigers Preview – Can Wests do damage to the Eels?

There was a big win for the Wests Tigers last weekend as they kept the Brisbane Broncos off the scoresheet.

It was a 48-0 victory that the Tigers took, which saw them avoid falling to three straight losses.

It is a W3 L2 record in their last five games and they have been scrappy and competitive even in the two defeats in that sequence.

The Wests Tigers are W5 L5 for the campaign and have averaged 24 points per game.

That’s an average of two points per game better than the Eels have produced in the campaign.

The record that the Wests Tigers do not have a great record at the Bankwest Stadium.

Wests Tigers have won 8 of 23 previous visits to the venue since 1998.

What the Tigers will have seen Manly do very well against the Eels last weekend.

That is they really got at the playmakers of Parramatta and shut them down, which is no easy thing to pull off.

This is going to be a tough ask for the Wests Tigers no matter what. But they are running with a lot of confidence.


Parramatta Eels vs Wests Tigers Betting Advice

There is a chance that the Parramatta Eels will get some of their big players back for this one.

Mitchell Moses should be back along with potent winger Maika Sivo and lock Nathan Brown.

That will give them a lift, especially having the highly-influential Moses in the team.

Surprisingly the Eels just couldn’t find a way to finish off Manly last weekend, who were just out on their feet in the second half of the game.

  • Parramatta Eels have won 5 of the last 6 against the Tigers
