Eels v Titans
The Eels ran into the in-form Newcastle Knights last week which ended their run of 6 straight wins. While this slightly dents their top 4 hopes, this is largely seen as just a blip on their radar and they are expected to bounce back and return to their good form. This will be helped by the return of star fullback Bevan French from injury.
The Titans go from bad to worse with 4 consecutive losses and being outscored 122-20 in their last 3 matches. On top of their on-field issues, there has been plenty of off-field drama with the high profile Jarryd Hayne (injured) and coach Neil Henry having issues.
Recent history tells us that the home side wins in this fixture and at 1.16, the Eels are almost certain of this win and offer the punter little value. I think the Titans defensive woes will continue and with the Eels looking to bounce back, I’m tipping Over 42.5 @ 1.93
