Monday night concludes Round 9 with the Eels hosting the cellar dwelling Sharks.
An intriguing battle looms here, with the 2nd worst defence (Eels) pitted against the worst attack (Sharks).
The saving grace for Parramatta is they are back at headquarters where they have an infinitely better record.
They have won all 3 matches at home this year and have won and covered the last 3 against the Sharks at this ground also.
Cronulla have been diabolical away from home this year, losing all three matches and scoring a paltry 8 points.
They have also lost their last 10 Monday night away matches, so it would appear they are up against it here.
Both these sides have key players under injury clouds, so this probably isn’t the game to go steaming into until team line-ups become clearer, however for now I’ll tip the Eels to get back to winning ways.
Verdict: Parramatta Eels Win at $1.73 with
