North Queensland Cowboys vs Parramatta Eels Preview
The Cowboys have opened $1.68 favourites to defeat the Eels ($2.20) in Friday night’s Prelim and progress to a Grand Final.
The Cows’ season has been nothing short of remarkable.
After finishing a forgettable fifteenth in 2021, I (along with many, many other pundits) had them penciled in for a similar season and therefore, a similar result.
Instead, they will host a Preliminary Final and, as the market suggests, are every chance of winning through to their fourth Grand Final.
Todd Payten has the boys humming, their stars are all firing and a repeat of what they’ve done more often that not this season will be enough to see them winning.
The Eels’ inconsistency was telling at several pivotal points of the season, but they did enough to finish in the Top 4 and with that, gain a crucial ‘second chance’.
Despite being thoroughly outclassed by the Panthers in Week 1 of the Finals, they bounced back with a trashing of the Raiders last weekend.
They’ve been forced to go the long way, but last week’s performance is sure to have filled their sails with wind, and they will be quietly confident of heading north and pinching another victory.
Again, it all comes down to Mitchell Moses. If he plays like he did last week, I think they’ll be winning.
