The Storm appear well on their way to securing another minor premiership as they gear up for a revenge game against the Eels on Saturday night.
Parramatta prevailed 16-12 when these two sides met back in Round 2, a result that largely kick-started Melbourne’s ongoing 19-game winning streak to match the all-time league record set by the 1975 Eastern Suburbs Roosters.
A win this week and a Panthers loss would be enough to secure the minor premiership, while the Eels still hold top four hopes despite only one win from their last five games.
Parramatta finally snapped its four-game losing skid with a big win over the Cowboys last week, but like the betting line suggests, this is a much tougher Storm outfit than the one they faced earlier in the year.
Making matters worse, Eels winger Maika Sivo is set to miss this game with a knee injury, while the Storm could see Justin Olam and Brandon Smith return to the side.
