Parramatta have slipped from 4th to 11th since the start of the Origin period, and haven’t looked like winning a game without their superstar Jarryd Hayne.
Eels fans are hoping that’s all about to change, with a rested-up Hayne back to face the Rabbitohs, who are overwhelming $1.45 favourites against Parramatta ($2.85).
Punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au don’t seem too fussed about Hayne’s return, investing 9 times the money on the Bunnies compared to the home side.
Considered the saviour for the Eels, Hayne is priced at $2.10 to score a try at any stage of the match, $7.50 to grab a double, and $34 to snare a hat trick.
“The Eels were rudderless without Hayne in last week’s 48-0 loss to the Warriors, but you’d expect a much stronger showing now that he’s back. Having said that, the money for Souths is nothing short of remarkable,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
