NRL Sunday: Sharks v Eels betting tips, prediction & odds, round 13, 2020

NRL round 13: Dragons v Broncos

Welcome to our Cronulla v Parramatta betting tips, prediction and odds update for their NRL clash at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Sydney, on Sunday, August 9.

The Sharks have struck some great form in the past month, winning six of their past seven matches to storm to seventh on the NRL table. To be fair, they have had a good recent fixture and when they did come up against a top-notch side in Penrith, they were hammered 56-24.

That’s the problem facing Cronulla coach John Morris; the Sharks can score with ease and play some dazzling football, but they are among the worst offenders in missing tackles.

No such defensive worries for Parramatta, who sit in third place on the table with 10 wins and two losses and boast statistically the best defence in the NRL.

The Eels have been installed a $1.40 favourite in the betting, while the Sharks ($2.95) are not finding much love with punters. The $1.90 line has been set at 6.5.

The Sharks regain an important trio of players from hamstring injuries for this clash, including veteran back Josh Dugan, who is playing his 200th first-grade game. Fellow centre Jesse Ramien is also back, along with five-eighth Matt Moylan.

Parramatta have made just one change from last round, with Ray Stone replacing Brad Takairangi on the pine.

Cronulla +6.5 points/match total over 38.5 points

Both of these teams have plenty of points in them, even with the weather forecast not looking great for Sunday. The Sharks are fast emerging as the entertainers of the league and if they can sort out their defensive frailties they could make a charge in the second half of the season.

Josh Dugan to score a try

This option for the Sharks centre to score at any time in the match is quoted around $3.25 with Unibet. Dugan has been a damaging player for a long time and he will be desperate to put his stamp on his milestone game.

Cronulla Sharks v Parramatta Eels prediction

This battle could be pitched as the defensive Parramatta v the attacking Cronulla but that would not really be accurate considering the Eels are also extremely damaging in attack. But we can’t help but feel they are there for the taking in this one. The Sharks have won six of the past seven matches between these two teams and are bubbling along nicely of late. The start will be all-important to see if Cronulla have brought the intensity in defence. Our Sharks v Eels prediction: Sharks by four points.
