New Zealand Warriors vs Parramatta Eels Preview
The Warriors have quickly turned into one of the most fascinating sides with four weeks to go.
New Zealand’s early season home sickness feels like a distant memory now as the Kiwis suddenly find themselves just four points off a spot in the eight.
The Warriors need to win out and results to go their way from here on out, but they have to feel pretty good about themselves knowing they return to the Central Coast this week – a stadium they’ve come to love this season.
Parramatta’s woes of late also make this a very interesting betting matchup, even moreso with Dylan Brown set to miss an indefinite amount of time with an ankle injury.
The Eels laid a goose egg last week against the Rabbitohs in their 38-0 loss, while their previous performances against the Sharks, Dragons and Storm have left a lot to be desired.
New Zealand are 4-2 at the line on the Central Coast this year and 6-2 as the “home” underdog over the last 12 months.
With their season on the line, don’t discount the Warriors keeping this close.
