Who will win Sharks vs Eels?

The Sharks will rue some missed opportunities against the Raiders last week, with some basic errors ultimately denying them a first-up victory.

The Eels were a little leaky against the Titans but were also quite damaging the other way. That being said they'll need to tighten up defensively to challenge the better sides consistently.

This week they'll be without Sean Russell and Ryan Matterson due to injury.

We sense despite the results from last week, the Sharks aren't too far away from finding their feet and they should secure a narrow victory here.
