With input from 41 online bookmakers across 23 sports betting markets, the anticipation for this clash reaches new heights. As it stands, the online bookmakers have placed the Parramatta Eels as the clear favorites to triumph, with odds set at 1.07. This suggests that the Eels are expected to deliver a strong performance and emerge victorious in this thrilling encounter.
In the upcoming match at CommBank Stadium, the Eels will strive to maintain their position in the top eight. Despite making it to the Grand Final in the previous season, the Eels faced a challenging schedule at the beginning of this year. Although they managed to recover from a slow start during the mid-season, they have encountered another obstacle in recent times.
Regrettably, Parramatta's performance has been lackluster lately, suffering three defeats in their last four games. As a result, they have slipped to the 11th spot on the ladder, joining seven other teams with either 26 or 24 points.
It goes without saying that every game is crucial from this point onwards. With demanding matches against the Panthers, Broncos, and Roosters looming on the horizon, the Eels cannot afford any mistakes. In contrast, the Dragons have little to play for, given that only a miraculous late surge from the Tigers could save them from claiming the wooden spoon. St. George Illawarra has endured a dreadful season, particularly struggling on the road with a loss in all nine away outings.
Considering this, it's hard to envision the Dragons causing any trouble, especially when the Eels will have Dylan Brown returning to partner with Mitch Moses in the halves. The match promises to be an exciting display of skill and determination, with both teams aiming to achieve their respective goals.
