Souths have filled up against the Eels of late and will be looking to put another score on Parra to atone for their disgraceful last-up showing against the Dragons.
After a horrific showing against the Dragons, things are starting to look up for South Sydney. Star fullback Latrell Mitchell is back in the team for the first time since Round 5 and the Bunnies come up against a rival they have had great success against in the recent past.
Souths have won four straight against Parramatta but that tells only part of the story. They have scored at least 38 in all four with all four wins coming by 14-plus. They have won three straight at Accor.
This is also a good spot for the Bunnies. They have covered 10 of 14 at Accor and 13 of 19 night games. Notably they have covered six of eight as an underdog at ANZ.
Parramatta have failed to cover their last four off scoring 26-plus and have covered just 4 of 12 as a favourite.
Souths can be backed here with a good degree of confidence.
Same Game Multi
Alex Johnston has 14 tries in 14 games this year and has crossed for eight in his last five. He has 11 tries in 10 games against the Eels.
Maika Sivo has scored three tries in four games against Souths and gets a great matchup against a horrific Souths right-edge defence.
Latrell Mitchell has scored 30 tries in 51 games at fullback.
Isaiah Papalii has scored six tries in 14 games this season but notably he has scored five in his last six when playing on an edge. The South Sydney edge defence has proven worrisome all year too.
