Bulldogs vs Panthers NRL betting preview

This game will be a coronation ceremony for the Penrith Panthers, who clinched the minor premiership last week and will be solely focused on finishing the regular season without any injuries.

It’s exactly a situation like this where a shot at the title can be derailed because players are looking past the opponent in front of them, so it will be interesting to see if Ivan Cleary can get his team through the week unscathed.

The Panthers have rested Stephen Crichton, Viliame Kikau and Dylan Edwards for this one and could make a few more changes before kickoff, so the $1.18 head-to-head price is one to watch.

The Canterbury Bulldogs are paying $5.50 and finally got off the bottom of the ladder with a 26-16 win over the Rabbitohs, but this is a huge step up in class.

The -12.5 handicap for Penrith looks like a good place to start, as $1.90 line odds are slightly better value than the $1.83 for the 13+ margin.

The absence of Kikau and Crichton could force the much-improved Jarome Luai to run the ball more and test Canterbury on the edges, so he looks a good shout in the tryscorer betting markets.

Kurt Capewell, who will play in Kikau’s spot, offers some value as an outsider having played plenty of football in the centres and on the wing.

Penrith haven’t conceded more than 14 points since round nine, so scoring for the Bulldogs will be difficult.

If you have to pick one Canterbury player to cross, Jayden Okunbor could be the guy to do it following a sensational performance against South Sydney last start.
