Finals Week 2 Preview (w/ Handsome Hammy G)
I’ll be the first to admit I couldn’t pick my own nose last week! Thanks to Uncle Roasty for giving me a second shot.
MANLY v ROOSTERS
Manly have won their last 7 when starting as favourite, they’ll do exactly that tonight.
Turbo and Jason Saab are very understandably short in the anytime tryscorer market ($1.45).
If you’re after a bit of value, Manly have conceded tries to left edge back rowers in their last 3 games (Matt Dorey, Ben Condon, Kenny Bromwich).
Angus Crichton let us down last week, but based on that $4.50 on offer presents a bit of value.
PENRITH v EELS
The Panthers should bounce back here. They’ve won their last 3 against the Eels.
BUT, they haven’t won 4 in a row v Parramatta since 1971.
Gotta be looking at the left wingers v the Eels – they can’t keep them out!
Josh Mansour scored a double v Parramatta. Brian To’o, Rueben Garrick and Enari Tuala all helped themselves to hat tricks.
Going back to the well here with Brian To’o. Any of the following markets get my motor running:
2 OR MORE $3.40
3 OR MORE $10
FIRST TRY SCORER $6.50
NRL FINALS – TOP TRY SCORER
To come out on top here, I reckon you need a player who will play 4 finals matches.
Jason Saab the $4.50 favourite (already has 2 finals tries) will take some beating.
Going off the same logic and based on his opportunity for a fill up v the Eels, Brian To’o @ $11 might present the best value in this market.
