Eels vs Rabbitohs Preview and Prediction

Parramatta are in big danger of dropping out of the top four when they come up against an in-form South Sydney team on Friday night.

It’s been a rough last month for the Eels, with Brad Arthur’s side losing three of their last four matches and each of their last two.

Now level on points with the Roosters and only two ahead of sixth-placed Manly, the Eels face four top six clubs in their run home and will need to lift if they are to claim a second chance in the finals.

Parramatta’s poor form coincided with the loss of Mitch Moses to injury, with the club struggling to score points over the last fortnight, losing 12-10 to Canberra and 28-0 to the Roosters.

Scoring points hasn’t been an issue whatsoever for the Rabbitohs, who are flying high on an eight-match winning streak.

Souths have only lost to the Panthers and Storm this season and are scoring points for fun, averaging 36.44 when winning, while seven of their last eight victories have been by 13+ margins.

Six of those eight wins have gone over the total points line, with the Rabbitohs scoring 46 points or more in three of their last four wins.

VERDICT:

Souths have won the last three meetings between the teams by 13+ margins and are in far superior shape to the Eels right now, so we’re backing that streak to continue with plenty of points once again (Best Rabbitohs -10 Line odds $2.00 with Ladbrokes).
