In the 2nd round of the National Rugby League in Australia, Gold Coast Titans host Parramatta Eels. The Titans from Gold Coast, Queensland will be looking for their first win this season, after losing their opening match against Canberra Raiders. However, in my opinion that will be a difficult task, because Parramatta Eels are very strong team.
Parramatta Eels won their 1st match this year, against Canterbury Bulldogs. It was routine match, in front of their crowd. However in this match, the home team, Gold Coast Titans will not have any major advantage because the match will be played without fans because of the corona virus outbreak.
Both teams had very solid pre season, so we can say they are in good form. During the off season, Gold Coast Titans changed a lot of players, however their biggest change was replacing the head coach. Still i doubt that will be enough to improve their performance. Parramatta Eels lost couple players, however they also brought very skilled guys from Penrith Panthers and Wests Tigers.
I believe there is still a big gap in terms of quality between these two teams. My bet is Parramatta Eels AH -2.5.
