NRL Saturday: Eels v Sea Eagles, predictions & odds, round 4, 2020
Here we look at the Parramatta v Manly Warringah NRL match which is easily the match of the day if not of the entire round.
The Eels and Sea Eagles clash at Bankwest Stadium, with the Eels sitting atop the NRL ladder undefeated after three rounds and having conceded just 14 points in three matches while scoring 88.
Parramatta still have their doubters though as their three wins have come against struggling Bulldogs, Titans and Broncos. The Sea Eagles lost to the Melbourne Storm first-up before an epic 9-8 win against the powerful Sydney Roosters and a comfortable win against the Bulldogs.
Both teams head into the clash with unchanged line-ups.
Many NRL fans are salivating at the prospect of the fullbacks match-up between the Sea Eagles’ Tom Trbojevic and the Eels’ Clint Gutherson, who provide so much attacking impetus to their respective teams. They are in the conversation for best custodians in the game along with the Roosters’ James Tedesco.
This will be a fierce contest between a Parramatta side trying to stamp itself as a genuine contender and a Manly side trying to return the former glamour club to the lofty heights.

Eels v Sea Eagles free betting tips
Below our NRL betting expert has highlighted his free tips for the Eels v Sea Eagles clash.
Match total under 40.5 points at $1.90
Both of these teams have shown tremendous steel in defence several times already this season and this match will likely really feel like a semi-final, with little quarter given or asked. Points should be hard to come by so the $1.90 with leading bookmaker Unibet about the score total being under 40.5 looks good.
Jorge Taufua anytime try-scorer at $2.20
The powerful Manly winger has scored eight tries in 12 matches against the Eels, a phenomenal strike rate. The tries will likely be hard-won and down the flanks, so we think Taufua can crash over to continue this great record against Parra. We spotted $2.20 with bookmaker Unibet about this option but shop around.
Parramatta Eels v Manly Sea Eagles prediction
Parramatta have won eight of their past 10 matches against Manly, but many have been hard fought and we expect nothing different this time. Both of these sides are rated strong enough to contend for the title come finals time. The Eels by a whisker at home for us. Good punting.
