Points are set to fly at Suncorp this Saturday when the Sea Eagles (10-7, 22 points) and Tigers (6-11, 14 points) square off. Every metric, piece of vision and statistic suggests the same.
Let’s start with the history between these two teams. The over has hit in 15 of 21 Sea Eagles-Tigers matches dating back to 2008. The total has reached at least 44 in 11 of the last 13.
Both teams are significant over sides in 2021. Manly are 11-6 over on the back of the fourth best attack that has registered 28-plus points in nine of their last 12. The Tigers are 12-5 over and this is primarily on the back of the 13th-ranked defence.
Manly score points. The Tigers concede plenty. They can also score a few themselves. This on a hard and fast Suncorp.
The angles are also pushing is 23-13 when Manly are favoured including 12-6 when they are favoured by more than a converted try. The over is 225-14 when Manly are off conceding more than 18. The over is 12-3 when the Tigers are an underdog of at least eight points and 13-3 when they are off scoring 20-plus points.
The Sea Eagles easily flew past the Tigers 40-6 in their Round 7 meeting in Sydney last April.
