Roosters vs Panthers betting tips

Sydney Roosters$1.19 at Sportsbet
Penrith Panthers – $4.55

Saturday’s NRL clash at the SCG is all about the Penrith Panthers and their finals chances.

Only a win will do for Ivan Cleary and his charges, who sit a point and percentage outside the eight with two rounds to go.

If the Broncos or the Tigers get up this week, the Panthers will also need to beat the Knights in the final round to have any chance of finishing in the top half.

For the Sydney Roosters, the next fortnight is all preparation for the first week of the 2019 NRL finals.

The Chooks are two games clear in second place and show no signs of slowing down as they search for their seventh win on the bounce.

Latrell Mitchell – Sydney’s star centre has 17 tries for the year and scored five in three games before sitting out last week. The $5 at Sportsbet for two or more tries looks a good way to go.

Brent Naden – This young man has made a big impact in his rookie season with eight tries in 11 games. Sportsbet’s $3.40 anytime tryscorer odds are excellent value for a proven threat.

One could forgive the Roosters for taking their talons off the gas at this stage, but it looks like they intend to hit the finals in top gear. The Panthers appear to have done their dash and will do well just to make a game of it.
