We are deep in the heart of overs season and with the Bunnies firing on all cylinders and the Sharks a big overs team then it seems a perfect fit to be betting on a high-scoring affair.
This is a great matchup that will have a major impact on the makeup of the Top 8. Cronulla go in small home favourites. They have covered 12 of 19 at Shark Park and most notably 9 of 11 off a loss. Souths though have covered 9 of 13 as an underdog and 17 of 25 off conceding 12 or fewer.
The Rabbitohs have been a different team since Latrell Mitchell returned with wins over Parramatta and Melbourne so the lean is to the Bunnies but the top play is the over.
Souths have scored at least 24 in the four games since Mitchell has been back in the cardinal and myrtle. The over is 8-2 when Souths are off a win and it hits at 57% when the Bunnies are off a double digit win.
The over hits at 66% when the Sharks play at night and is 18-8 when Cronulla are off a double digit loss.
