Panthers vs Tigers NRL betting preview

The Penrith Panthers are paying $1.20 for a seriously good reason.

They have won 10 in a row and shouldn’t raise a sweat against the Wests Tigers, who have lost six of their last eight games and are coming off an embarrassing performance at home against the Roosters.

Michael Maguire has done as much as he can to put toughness and consistency into the Tigers’ football, but things aren’t clicking for one reason or another.

They have no doubt been hampered by the absence of Harry Grant at dummy half, as he was in the running to win the Dally M Medal when the voting went silent.

His creativity made life much more comfortable for the likes of Benji Marshall and Adam Doueihi out wide, and their attitude towards defence has left plenty to be desired in 2020.

It will be a ninth straight season without finals football for the Tigers, and the $5 they are paying just to get in a win in this game tells you how everyone is feeling about them.

Penrith are short in the 13+ margin stakes at $2.05, but it still makes sense to throw them into any NRL betting multis you might be putting together.

If you think they might get greedy and run up the score on their hapless western Sydney neighbours, the $4.31 on offer for the -24.5 handicap might be of interest to you.

Penrith are fresh off a 26-point victory, so finding the points won’t be the issue for them.

Brian To’o makes his return from injury and comes straight back to the top line of first tryscorer betting at $9.

Stephen Crichton at $10 is a strike weapon on the left, and he looks especially dangerous against a Tigers side who have had several issues defending on their right edge.
