Bulldogs v Eels NRL Betting Guide

There is another eagerly anticipated NRL encounter taking place on Friday as the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs entertain the Parramatta Eels.

The Bulldogs will be expected to take this clash as they currently sit in sixth position of the table and the Eels are rock bottom, but you can’t take anything for granted in this competition and the hosts know they need to take the spoils to keep their finals series hopes alive.

When looking at the betting, it is no surprise to see the Bulldogs as the big favourites to take this clash and at the moment, they have odds as short as 1.09 with Betfair to come out on top.

They returned to winning ways last time out after a couple of defeats and they did it in some style, beating third place Melbourne Storm 39-0.

A similar performance from the Bulldogs here is sure to see them come out on top. They started the season poorly, but found some form in the middle part of the campaign and will now be looking to go on a good run yet again.

When these two last met, the Bulldogs just had enough to take the spoils as they won 20-16 back in week two of the season.

As for the Parramatta Eels, it is safe to say it has been a miserable campaign for them as they sit bottom of the standings and have lost their last eight.

They have conceded 74 points in their last three encounters and will find it tough to take anything from this match.

However, some might fancy a small bet on the visitors as they can be backed at 11.00 with Luxbet, which could be good value. That said though, a massive improvement and possibly the performance of the season is needed from the Eels to take anything from this clash on Friday.

There are plenty of other markets to place some bets on for this match and one of the most popular might be the first scoring play.

It isn’t much of a surprise to see that a Bulldogs try is the most likely in terms of odds in this market and it can be backed at 1.48 with Sportingbet.

Then, if you think Eels can get themselves a try first, you can back it at 4.00 with

We think the best market for this encounter is the winning margin though and like the look of the Bulldogs winning, but not by too many points.

The bookies have the favourites winning by under 12.5 points at 4.25 and we think that is where the value is at.
