Canterbury Bulldogs vs Manly Sea Eagles Preview
The Sea Eagles will be hoping for a repeat performance of their 32-6 win over the Bulldogs back in Round 3 when they face off against Canterbury for a second time on Friday night.
Manly hasn’t tasted a win since July, but that hasn’t stopped the bookies from installing them as the odds-on favourites.
Speaking of favourites, the Dogs are now into a very short price to take out this year’s wooden spoon.
Canterbury came up four points short to the Titans last week and this appears to be their last shot at a victory with the Rabbitohs and Panthers ahead on the schedule.
This might also be Manly’s last chance to end the season on a high note with the frisky Titans and Warriors up next, although they will have to go without winger Jorge Taufua, who tore his calf in last Saturday’s loss to the Tigers.
The Dogs are battered and bruised themselves after Dylan Napa suffered a ligament tear last week.
Kieran Foran is also in some doubt with a pec injury.
With all this in mind, a low-scoring game appears to be the safest bet.
The Total has gone Under in each of the Dogs’ last four home games against Manly, so we’re tipping points to come at a premium.
