Manly Sea Eagles vs Wests Tigers Predictions and Betting Tips
🏈 NRL Round 27 Match Preview
⏰ 1 September 2023 - 18:00 AEST
🏟 Stadium - 4 Pines Park
The Manly Sea Eagles will take on the Wests Tigers in a Friday night NRL fixture that is sure to captivate rugby league supporters. The match between the traditional rivals will kick off at 6 pm AEST on 01/09/2023 at 4 Pines Park in Brookvale.
Based on the odds compiled by 3 betting sites in Australia, the bookies have installed Manly as strong $1.18 favourites to win the game on home turf against the Tigers.
With the Sea Eagles pushing for a finals spot while the Tigers languish near the bottom of the ladder, Manly will be expected to capitalize on their home-ground advantage against a struggling Wests outfit.
Here is my attempt to rewrite the text and list in a natural, human-sounding way: The Sea Eagles will be gunning for their sixth straight win over the Tigers when the two sides end their 2023 seasons on Friday night at 4 Pines Park.
Not a huge amount at stake here with the Tigers headed for another wooden spoon, although it's a milestone match for Manly with Jake Trbojevic celebrating his 200th. So some motivation there to put on a show for the home fans.
The Sea Eagles showed their attacking capabilities last week, piling on 42 points against the Dogs. It really could have been so many more too. In fact, Manly have been pretty competitive in recent weeks, pushing top four sides Penrith and the Warriors in narrow losses.
The Tigers meanwhile have managed just four wins all year and lost their last 11 as underdogs, so not much hope of ending another turbulent season on a high. After a thrilling upset of the Dolphins, the Tigers crashed back to earth last week with a 26-point thumping from the Roosters.
Manly Sea Eagles vs Wests Tigers Head-to-Head
The Manly Sea Eagles have had a clear edge over the Wests Tigers in recent head-to-head clashes. Over the last 8 years, these familiar foes have met 13 times, with Manly winning 7 of those matchups compared to just 6 wins for the Tigers. The Sea Eagles have held the upper hand in the rivalry during that period, with none of the games between the teams ending in a draw. Manly's 7-6 head-to-head record over Wests in the past 8 seasons highlights their recent dominance when these sides meet, especially at their Brookvale home ground.
Manly Sea Eagles Performance
🟩🟥🟥🟥🟩 The Manly Sea Eagles come into this match with mixed form, having won 2 of their past 5 games. With 3 losses in their last 5 outings, the Sea Eagles have struggled for consistency in the lead-up to finals. Sitting just inside the top 8, Manly will need to improve their recent record of 2 wins and 3 losses from their last 5 matches if they are to build momentum heading into the playoffs. Their up-and-down form line means the Sea Eagles could be vulnerable against rivals. q
Wests Tigers Performance
🟥🟩🟥🟥🟥 The Wests Tigers enter this match in poor form, having won just 1 of their past 5 games while suffering 4 losses during that period. Sitting near the bottom of the ladder, the Tigers' sole victory in their last 5 matches came against the Knights. With a miserable record of 1 win and 4 losses from their last 5 games, the Tigers will be hoping to cause a major upset against the favoured Sea Eagles. However, Wests' poor recent results suggest Manly will be expected to overpower the struggling Tigers.
📋 Players to watch:
- Cherry-Evans also crossed for a try last week against the Dogs.
- David Nofoaluma has scored five tries in his six games at 4 Pines.
- Haumole Olakau'atu has scored a try in his last two matches against the Tigers.
⚡ Match Facts:
- The Sea Eagles have won the last five clashes between these sides.
- The Tigers have won just three of their last 16 at 4 Pines Park.
- Daly Cherry-Evans loves playing the Tigers - he's scored 14 tries in 19 matches against them.
💡 Match Prediction:
According to the forecasts, the Manly Sea Eagles are strong favourites to continue their dominant record over the Wests Tigers. The probabilities point to a likely Sea Eagles victory at 72.2% compared to just 27.8% for the Tigers. This is reinforced by the bookmakers' odds, which have priced Manly as clear $1.38 favorites, while Wests are outsiders at $3.60.
The prediction indicates the Sea Eagles will win by a margin of around 12 points against the Tigers this Friday night. Given Manly's superior head-to-head record and the contrasting form lines for the teams, the forecast appears justified in predicting a comfortable Sea Eagles win.
Sea Eagles vs Wests Tigers Score Prediction: 30 - 18
