The Warriors made a convincing return to action following lockdown as they thumped the Dragons. Next up for them they will be facing up against the Panthers who had a winning streak snapped in a draw with Knights last weekend.

Can the Panthers rediscover winning touch?

The Panthers battled out a 14-14 draw with the Knights on their return to action last weekend. That was after having banked back to back wins in their opening two games of this campaign.

So it is still a steady start from them and they kick off in this one as the odds-on favourite in the match outright. They are the 1/2 favourites with Betway* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:00 GMT on Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020).

The Penrith Panthers go into round four sitting fourth in the ladder with their five point haul so far. They have conceded the most points out of all the current top six, with an average winning margin of 5 points so far this term.

Even though they did avoid defeat last weekend Penrith did throw away what was a commanding position against Newcastle to tie. Matt Burton will be kicking himself after missing five shots at goal in that match.

The head to head form is with the Panthers at the moment. They have won five of their last seven games against the Warriors and with home advantage, will be expected to deliver another one.


Can the Warriors upset the odds?

The New Zealand Warriors, who are camped in Australia because of the current conditions due to Covid-19, are underdogs here. They haven’t won at Campbelltown since 2007, and will be up against it in this one.

The Warriors opened the season with disappointing back to back defeats. Those came against the Knights and the Raiders. But things came good for them on the return to action as they beat the struggling Dragons 18-0.

The New Zealand Warriors completed 46 of 48 sets during that match. But still, the negative of that is that they really should have racked up more points, their new combinations this season not really coming up with the creativity to do so.

In total, the New Zealand Warriors have only tallied 24 points for this campaign, which pales in comparison to the 66 that their opponents have amassed in the campaign. That’s just an average of 8 points per game.

So there is a chance that the handicap line could be extended in this one. That would, of course, be in favour of the Panthers for this fixture. The going is going to be a lot tougher for the New Zealand Warriors against higher quality opposition in this one.

The Warriors did come up with a win on their last away game against the Panthers (not at Campbelltown), producing a 30-10 win over Penrith in May last year. But that’s one of only three wins against the Penrith Panthers in their last eleven at any venue.


Penrith Panthers vs New Zealand Warriors Betting Advice

The New Zealand Warriors were a model of efficiency last weekend against the Dragons. However, it was nothing more than that against a poor team. There was creativity and clinical finishing missing without a doubt.


Key Facts – Penrith Panthers vs New Zealand Warriors Betting Tip

  • New Zealand Warriors are the second-lowest scorers in the ladder currently
  • Penrith Panthers are W2 D1 this season
  • New Zealand Warriors haven’t won at Campbelltown since 2009


Penrith should never have dropped a point against Newcastle last weekend, even missing a field goal shot for the golden point. That will likely pump them up this weekend after that little set back.

The Panthers look as if they can be comfortably backed for success in this one. A Panthers -6 handicap at even money looks more than a fair price* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:00 GMT on Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020)
