Streams for Parramatta Eels vs Wests Tigers




Old rivals Parramatta and Wests do battle at Bankwest on Sunday afternoon, in a game that is vital for the Tigers to continue their momentum, while they will be testing themselves against one of the serious contenders for the title.  Parramatta rebounded from a torrid game against the Bunnies, by belting the Knights last Sunday and are again looking good, as they strive to maintain their top 4 position down the stretch.  Wests took advantage of the Panthers missing their top players last weekend, and inflicted their first loss of the season, which is part of a nice run from the Tigers, who are now 5-8, 11th and looking to move higher, by upsetting the Eels in this Sunday blockbuster.  As is the case across much of eastern Australia this weekend, the Sydney weather is cracking and ready to bask the Bankwest Stadium in sunshine for this clash.

Mahoney is a big injury concern for the Eels, as it means they have no really tested hooker option, and have to platoon playing time between the likes of Lussick and Smith, who are unproven at this level, in this role.  Blake Ferguson is still out of the squad, as Dunster has done enough to keep his place on the wing for the Eels another week.  Wests are fairly settled, and only Ofahengaue was involved in the Origin, he ought to play, as should Mbye who limped from the field last weekend, but is said to be fit for this game.  Young guns such as Garner, Liddle and Seyfarth are making big impressions for the Tigers, and at long last some light at the end of an ugly stretch of tunnel is appearing for the merged club, in terms of building a strong team.

Parramatta were just too good for the Tigers back in early April, as they won 36-22, but are up against a Tigers team that is showing form this time around.  Currently, the Tigers are longshot odds to succeed this season, at $101 but defeating a team like Parramatta who are $9 would certainly make other teams take notice, and reduce that figure considerably.  Parramatta are $1.25 favourites for this game, but the Tigers will be on a high, and the $4 odds for them are a bit harsh from bookies, while a 12 point advantage is given to the Eels, in the margin market.

PREDICTION: Tigers can cause a boilover here, and win by 8 points.

BETTING TIP: $5.50 for the Tigers to win by 1-12 is huge odds, very tasty.
