Match Preview

The Eels were disappointing in their 31-24 loss to the Roosters, only showing passages of positivity that troubled (what appeared to be) an inferior opponent. It left many wondering how the same team can defeat the Panthers and the Storm yet lose to the Roosters. The two issues were their inability to score points at the end of attacking sets, while their usually resolute defence was far from its best.

The Sea Eagles had a more difficult time of it against the Broncos, embarrassed as the favourites 38-nil. Not only were they poor with the ball, their ’big named’ players struggled. Tommy Turbo looked lame, while DCE had no platform set by his forwards. A similar performance in coming weeks will only lead to the same result. 

The Eels are favourites ($1.40 v $3) and appear better placed to bounce back from a loss. There is a suggestion that they were fatigued following a tough performance against the Panthers the week before. Regardless, they are a better team than their Round 10 effort suggests. The jury is still out on the Sea Eagles though; players weren’t at their best, but you need to be wary of this team when they employ ‘the siege mentality’.

It’s interesting to note that they have the 11th ranked defence in the competition averaging 23 points per game; their defence is letting them down at it needs to change. Returning home and proving capable on more occasions than their opponents, the Eels have more upside. It’s a tough choice but we are going to keep it simple and invest on the line and a few prop bets to keep things interesting. There are clearer matches this weekend to invest upon.
