The Guru is preparing to celebrate a stEELy Parramatta performance this weekend and is declaring that they can sEEL the dEEL against the Rabbitohs. “I can’t bEELieve the price on offer, their odds are very appEELing and I’m rEELly confident that they’ll get the cash.” Our man is definitely fEELing an upset is on the cards!

The 2019 Grand Finalists go head to head in what has become one of rugby league’s new-found rivalries. There’ll be no love lost between these two in the first sudden-death semi-final on Friday night. Both sides split their regular-season contests this year winning 1 apiece but the Roosters will have the all-important home ground advantage at the SCG for this one. The Raiders overcame a sluggish start to outclass the Sharks last week but face a much tougher opponent this week. The Roosters were patchy in their final, blown off the park in a brilliant 25-minute display of football by the Panthers. It’s difficult to line up that form but on face value, the Roosters deserve their favouritism for this clash, however, there is no significant edge to bet.
Parramatta Eels vs South Sydney Rabbitohs
Assessed Line: Eels +4.0
Ladbrokes: Eels +6.0
Similarly, it’s difficult to line up the form of these two teams as their performances mirrored both other finals from last week. Much like the Roosters, the Eels got off to a stunning start only to get blown away in a 10-minute second-half lapse against the Storm whilst, as Canberra did against the Sharks, the Rabbitohs overcame a shockingly slow start to outclass the Knights. There’s no doubt Souths have momentum on their side and having beaten the Eels 38-0 only six weeks ago, the bookies have installed them short-priced favourites. However, back at home and is a must-win clash, the gritty Eels have been clearly underrated. Brad Arthur will have them ready for what will be a tighter match than most expect. Parramatta at the plus is the VALUE BET of the round.
Good luck and great punting,
