Penrith Panthers v Sydney Roosters Betting Guide

There is plenty of NRL action taking place this weekend and on Friday, we should be in for a cracking encounter between the Penrith Panthers and the Sydney Roosters.

The Roosters are in a superb run of form of course and currently sit in second place of the ladder, whereas the Panthers are in tenth place and need to go on a good run if they are to make the season finals.

Penrith Panthers have lost their last two matches, so need to bounce back on home soil on Friday, but know what a tough encounter they are in for.

The home side have conceded 70 points in their last two games, so simply have to sharpen up defensively to stand any chance of taking the spoils here.

With two home games in a row, this is the perfect time for them to regain some confidence and take some points.

When looking at the odds from the bookmakers, you can see that the Panthers are the big underdogs for this one and Sportingbet have odds of 5.15 on a home win.

The Roosters are just two points off the top of the table, so they could even move to the top here as the league-leaders aren’t in action until later in the weekend.

It is now five wins in a row for the team sitting in second place, so they come into this one in excellent spirits and should have too much quality for their opponents.

In those five matches, Sydney Roosters have managed to keep two clean sheets, which means they look strong defensively and have the quality in the attacking half to accumulate points.

If you fancy a bet on an away win, they do have fairly short odds as you can back them at 1.21 with Bookmaker.

Although these two teams are in different spirits right now, this should still be an interesting clash and you never quite know what is going to happen at this stage of the campaign.

Betting on the half-time/full-time market might be the place to get some value and you can back the Panthers winning at both stages at 7.75 with Centrebet.

The Roosters doing the same thing will give you odds of 1.47 with Luxbet.

For us though, the Panthers winning at the break, but the Roosters taking the spoils looks to be a good bet at 8.00.

Bring on another cracking NRL encounter between two sides looking for points, albeit for different reasons.
