Premiership leaders the Eels will be looking to extend their perfect record for the season as they step into Super Saturday action on the weekend.

They will be taking on the Roosters who are the top scoring team in the ladder. The Sydney club though will be heading into this clash at the Bankwest Stadium as the favourites as they have soared into top form.

Can the Eels keep their hot-hand going?

Last weekend the Roosters extended their form to secure their third straight win. That was in another big success, pounding the Bulldogs out of sight.

It was a 42-6 success that they took in that one, which followed on from their 59-0 thrashing of the Broncos in their previous fixture. So they are bang in form at the moment are Sydney.

They are still the top-scoring side in the NRL this season having posted a tally of 151 points across their five games.

Their slow start to the season, losing their opening two games of the campaign looks a long way behind them. The Roosters have won their last two meetings with the Eels as well.

Our betting prediction:
Roosters Winning Margin 1-12

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

This is the headlining match of the weekend in the NRL. The Roosters, with their burst of form are knocking on the door of the top four. They are likely to keep things much the same as it was last time out in terms of team line up.

The form that the Sydney Roosters have going against the Eels stretches back a little but further. They have won seven of their last nine games against Parramatta and could be meeting the Premiership leaders at the right time.


Can the Eels hold off the in-form Roosters?

The Parramatta Eels are looking the real deal this season. They have won all five of their league fixtures so far and even in sticky situations they have managed to pull themselves through.

They have faced some tough duels in the last two rounds. The Eels squeaked past the Sea Eagles by three points in round four and then edged out the Panthers by six.

So their winning margins have been coming down, but the key thing in all of that, is that they have continued to find ways to win. They will be needing a big game from star player Mitchell Moses in this one.

The Eels were one of five teams who closed out round five of action having put more than 100 match points on the board. The significant difference between them and a lot of their main competitors is in the defensive department.

The Eels have been watertight in defence this season and have the best defensive record in the NRL currently. So they are not going to roll over lightly. But that head to head record against the Roosters will be a concern.


Sydney Roosters vs Parramatta Eels Betting Advice

This is such a good-looking game. The Roosters have exploded into life and they seem to have good continuity with their line up. Throw into the mix a three-match winning streak over the Eels and things look good for the Roosters.

Their average winning margin this season has been by 37 points. That’s how much firepower that they have laid down in their last three games. It’s been impressive stuff and they have to be backed to get the win.


Key Facts – Sydney Roosters vs Parramatta Eels Betting Tip

  • Sydney Roosters are the top scorers in the ladder
  • Sydney Roosters are on a three-match winning streak
  • Parramatta Eels have won two of their last nine against the Roosters


Parramatta have been on point this season but they have been pushed close in their last couple of matches. They have the defence to keep this close, but are perhaps losing a little momentum up front. Their unbeaten streak is definitely at risk.

The last three loses that the Eels have taken against the Roosters have all been by a margin of at least 14 points. We’ll dial that in because of how good Parramatta have been in decline, but a Roosters -8 piques interest at 11/10* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 07:01 GMT on Friday June 19th 2020)
