Parramatta Eels vs Newcastle Knights Preview
The Eels and the Knights will enter Sunday’s elimination game with similar mindsets after suffering respective double-digit losses last week.
While Newcastle’s loss to Brisbane meant very little in terms of the ladder, Parramatta’s 34-point annihilation at the hands of the Panthers cost them a chance at salvaging a top four finish and the double chance.
To make matters even more complicated, these two sides have met only once this year with the Eels walking away comfortable 40-4 winners during Origin week.
A lot has changed since then though, especially on the Knights’ front with several key faces returning from injury.
The additions of Kalyn Ponga and Bradman Best has made an enormous difference to the Newcastle attack over the last month, and it appears more reinforcements are coming with David Klemmer and Daniel Saifiti both a chance at playing this week.
The Eels also have some top names returning themselves in the form of Reagan Campbell-Gillard and Clint Gutherson – two welcome additions on the back of last week’s thrashing.
As far as betting goes, this is probably one of the toughest games to pick, but the edge does belong with Parramatta after Newcastle’s sloppy performance against the Broncos last week.
The Eels have played to a steady 12-6 record as the favourite at the line over the last 12 months, and if they can jump on the Knights early like did Brisbane did, they could win this big.
