THE Sea Eagles head to ANZ Stadium on Friday night, looking to further cement their position at the top of the table. They take on the Bulldogs at just the right time with the Bulldogs heavily-depleted thanks to State of Origin.
Manly look to have the firepower to win the match and will start a short-priced favourite at $1.32.
AustralianGambling has decided to hone in on the market that sounds more like something from ancient Roman days. This time it is not a Christian being thrown to a lion but rather a Krisnan up against a Lyon.
Krisnan Inu and Jamie Lyon are both the goal kickers for their respective teams and this market is based on who will rack up more points in the match.
Krisnan Inu (Bulldogs) – $2.60
Jamie Lyon (Sea-Eagles) – $1.48
Krisnan Inu has only appeared sporadically for the Bulldogs in 2014. He gets his chance this week with Josh Morris selected for New South Wales in Game 3 of the State of Origin Series.
Inu has played in four matches this season and scored just six points. They were scored via three conversions. He is averaging a meager 1.5 points per game.
In stark contrast, veteran centre Jamie Lyon has had a vintage season to date. The country boy from Wee Waa has scored four tries and slotted 40 goals between the sticks in just 12 matches. That is a total of 96 points at an average of eight per match.
Given that the Sea Eagles are heavily-favoured to win the game, one would think he can at least achieve that average again here.
On paper it is an accomplished point scorer who is integral to his team’s chances, up against a guy who has filled in a few times and hardly troubled the scorer.
The fact that the Sea Eagles are red-hot favourites to win means that Jamie Lyon should get ample opportunities to not only kick goals, but also possibly score a try or two.
He looks a real put in/take out proposition and appears to be massive overs at $1.48.
