The points are set to flow and most of them will be coming from Cronulla when the Sharks travel north to Brookvale to meet a divided Manly.
The best total of the week is the over in this one when the Sea Eagles host the Sharks. Manly are a team whose internal divides are only widening while the Sharks have zeroed in on second spot on the ladder with for-and-against set to play a big part. That signals plenty of points and the market agrees with the total rising from 46.5 to 50.5.
The over has hit in six of the last seven meetings with each of those topping 44. Most importantly though this is a huge over spot for both teams.
The over hits at a remarkable 69% when Manly are off a loss. The over is also 24-8 when the Sea Eagles are at Brookvale including a 5-1 over record when they are at Brookvale as an underdog of more than a converted try and 11-3 when Manly are at Brookvale off a double digit loss.
The over hits at 66% when the Sharks play at night and lands at a clip of 62% when they are favoured away from Shark Park.
Confidence is very high in the over here.

Locky Miller is one of the fastest players around and has scored in both his career starts.
Ronaldo Mulitalo scored a double the last time he met Manly.
Connor Tracey has 19 tries in 29 games as a starter in the three-quarter line.
Manly’s season has become a debacle since their pride jersey fiasco with the Sea Eagles hammered by both the Eels and Titans. Manly have conceded 36 and 44 in those two games. Cronulla can put up a score and with their hatred of Manly a huge win would not be a great surprise.
