Roosters vs Eels is the biggest match of the NRL season to date. After losing their first two games of the year, the two-time defending premier Roosters have stormed back to form with three straight victories.

Who will win Sydney Roosters vs Parramatta Eels?

This is where the top tipsters can start to pull away, getting these super close calls right. The Roosters are on a roll, decimating the Broncos and Dogs in successive weeks. Parramatta have had tight calls against Manly and Panthers the last fortnight, but emerged victorious in both. So who wins? We'll lean ever so slightly towards a Roosters victory in a tight one.
