Cowboys vs. Eels Prediction
It would be a toe-to-toe battle between the Cowboys and Eels with a spot in the Grand Final within touching distance. Both teams will go on all cylinders.
The Eels have been exploding in big games when it matters the most. We predict they will do the same tonight. They are fresh off a thumping 40-4 win over the Raiders.
Mitch Moses scored a try, kicked six goals, and created a couple of line break assists. He leads the league with 23 try-ends, three more than the Cowboys’ Chad Townsend. Hence, an interesting battle is brewing up there as well.

The Cowboys would feel the pressure of being the home favorites. They have been a bit shaky lately. They finished the regular season with a 20-10 defeat to the Rabbitohs before winning against a second-string Panthers’ side. Moreover, they leveled the match against the Sharks in the finals with 15 seconds remaining.
We predict the Eels will come out on top to reach the Grand Final.
