Parramatta Eels - bookies’ favorite
After losing their first game of the season in extra time against the Melbourne Storm, the Parramatta Eels will enter this encounter with high hopes of reversing that result and claiming victory. During the halftime break in a match that ended with the score 12-12 after regular time had been played, the Parramatta Eels held a 6-0 lead over their opponents. Unfortunately, they were unable to avoid a loss in that half due to their team's poor performance in the second half, particularly on defense. The Eels now hold the 12th spot in the National Rugby League standings because they have no points to show for their efforts. They have now won three of their previous six matches while also suffering defeat in three of those contests.
