The Tigers have not shown a lot under Brett Kimmorley but this line looks far too big against a team that is off the bit.
With Sydney under water and this game being staged at suburban Leichhardt, the Tigers getting 12 points against the Eels seems way too big.
Parramatta have certainly dominated this matchup with seven wins in the last eight but the Tigers did win back in Round 6.
The Tigers have covered three straight at Leichhardt and have covered 8 of 10 getting a double digit start. They are 13-5 against the spread off scoring 10 or fewer and have covered 12 of 21 off a loss of 20-plus.
The Eels have covered just 4 of 13 when favoured including 1 of 6 when favoured by more than a converted try.
It won’t be fun but the Tigers getting 12 points is the play.
Same Game Multi
Maika Sivo has 55 tries in 70 games and has five tries in six games against the Wests Tigers.
David Nofoaluma has five tries in his last six games and has seven tries in 13 games against the Eels.
Isaiah Papalii has scored 13 tries in 40 games since joining the Eels. He has scored in two of three against the Tigers wearing blue and gold. He should be in the mix to score against a Tigers edge that is hardly domineering.
