Final Thoughts:

Game ResultEels: medium confidence. Both teams come into this game in good form, with the Eels winning their last four and the Bulldogs winning their last three. The Eels should be bolstered by the return of Junior Paulo, while the Bulldogs are expected to field the same team as last week. We're leaning to the Eels here off the back of their excellent form at Bankwest Stadium (where they are 6-1 there straight up and 5-2 with the start), as well as their recent dominance over the Dogs (have gone 6-1 straight up and 5-2 with the start for the last seven).
With The StartBulldogs +8.5: low confidence. The Bulldogs defence has been very stout in recent times and they have conceded more than 20 points just once in the last seven weeks. Last week against the Rabbitohs was a high point for their defence, where they conceded just three penalty goals to the Rabbitohs. While the Eels attack should not be underestimated (3rd most points this season), we're taking the view the Bulldogs can keep them in reasonable check, and hence can keep the scoreline relatively close.
Game TotalUnder 37.5: low confidence. Games between these sides tend to be low scoring, averaging 32.3 and going under eight times in the last ten. While the Bulldogs have been a profilic 'under' team this season, with 16 unders in 21 games, it is also noted that the Eels trend to the ‘over’, going under just nine times in 21 games. While we lean to the under, it is a low line at 37.5, hence our low confidence here.
