It’s Monday night football at Brookvale Oval to conclude Round 10, when the Sea Eagles host the cellar dwelling Knights.
Despite a string of injuries Manly continue to prove a formidable force, whilst the Knights attacking woes have seen them slip to the foot of the table.
Looking at the statistics here it’s hard to see the Knights climbing off that position anytime soon, with Manly winning 6 of the last 7 clashes played here at Brookvale Oval.
Manly have won 10 of their last 11 “home” matches (Brookvale/Bluetongue) against the Knights, and have won and covered the Line in the last 7.
The Sea Eagles have lost just once at home this year, beaten in Golden Point, whilst the Knights have registered just 1 victory away from home from 5 attempts.
To make matters worse, Newcastle have lost their last 6 away Monday night games, and taking everything into account I can’t see them improving on that record here.
Manly have shown themselves to be a genuine premiership force, and they should continue on their winning ways at the expense of the Knights in this one.
Verdict: Manly HT/FT at $1.73 with
