Gold Coast Titans vs Parramatta Eels Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The Gold Coast Titans are aiming to snap a run of 12-straight NRL defeats as they host the Parramatta Eels at CBUS Super Stadium.

The Titans improved their defence after half time in Round 1 against the Raiders but giving up three first half tries proved the difference.

The Eels held the Bulldogs to 2 points in the 2020 NRL season opener in a dour contest that proved that Parramatta can grind out results.

Titans vs Eels Match Up


The halves will dictate this match. Titans halfback Ash Taylor had a strong pre-season, showing vast improvement in the second half in Canberra but still needs to lift his workrate on the defensive end.

Eels halfback Mitch Moses failed to make his mark against the Bulldogs but his class cannot be denied. The winner of the halfback battle will go a long way to deciding who comes out on top.
