This is the game of the weekend in the NRL. It features the table-topping Panthers taking on third-placed Eels.

This is the race for the minor premiership and with Penrith holding a three-point advantage at the top already, a win for them here could make them so tough to catch.

Can the Eels bag the two points on offer to close the gap a little? A win would put them to within three points of the Panthers.

Penrith Panthers Preview – Panthers just keep on winning matches

There was another win for Penrith Panthers in the last round as they fought back to earn a win against the Brisbane Broncos by a 25-12 scoreline.

It moved them on to a W15 D1 L1 record this season and it just been a phenomenal season from them.

The one defeat that they have suffered in this campaign happened when they met Parramatta in round five.

But now Penrith are in their own backyard at the Panthers Stadium and they are the 4/11 odds-on favourites to win this encounter* (odds taken 04:12 GMT, Wednesday 9th September).

The Panthers are the second-highest scoring team in the Premiership at the moment with an average of 26 points scored per game.

They have the second-best defensive record as well, so they mean serious business this season as they head towards the finals (top eight in the league go to a bracket).

Our betting prediction:
Panthers 1-10 Winning Margin

(odds taken 04:12 GMT, Wednesday 9th September)


Penrith have won five of their last eight fixtures against Parramatta but each of the last four have been tight.

Each of the last four meetings have ended within an eight-point margin, so it’s not worth looking at a big score for either there.

Just twice in the last six meetings between Parramatta and Penrith has a team scored at least 20 points.

Can the Panthers maintain their long winning streak in the NRL which currently stands at 12 matches?


Parramatta Eels Preview – Can the Eels revive minor premiership hopes?

There have been a few stutters from the Parramatta Eels in recent form as they have dropped two of their last four games.

So the pressure was starting to creep up on them, but they responded in very good fashion last weekend as they claimed a 24-18 win over the Warriors.

That was not an easy game for the Eels, with the Warriors having been carrying good form.

That is the only match of their last five in which they have scored more than 20 points.

Their attack has been misfiring a little bit of late, which is where they have fallen down. They still look the same formidable force in defence.

The Eels are now on a W13 L4 record for the season and just to put some recent attack woes back into the spotlight, Parramatta are the lowest-scoring team in the top eight.

Parramatta Eels are averaging 20 points per game in this campaign, which is a bit of a shortfall against the numbers being put up by Penrith.

The Eels have won 8 of 19 previous trips to the Panthers Stadium and they are going into this game as the 11/5 underdogs in the match outright* (odds taken 04:12 GMT, Wednesday 9th September).

The Eels have based a lot of their success on their strong defence in this campaign. But Penrith are more than a match for them in that area.

So this will be a real test of where Parramatta are really at in their bid for a premiership title.


Penrith Panthers vs Parramatta Eels Betting Advice

This is an absolute heavyweight clash near the top of the NRL ladder. The odds-on quote on the Panthers in the match outright says a lot about Penrith.

If they win on Friday, then Penrith will become just the third team in the history of the NRL to win 13 matches in a row.

They have to be backed to get the win in this one, simply because they look unplayable at the moment.


Key Facts – Penrith Panthers vs Parramatta Eels Betting Tip

  • Penrith Panthers are on a 12 match winning streak
  • Penrith Panthers have lost one game this season, that was against the Eels
  • Parramatta Eels have lost two of their last four league games


Even when the Broncos threw the kitchen sink at them last time out, the Panthers went up through the gears to secure the win.

Parramatta’s attacking weaknesses have been shown up in their last five fixtures. That has to come into play in this one.

Penrith will be able to shut them down.

We don’t see a win happening by a big margin and a Panthers 1-10 winning margin is at 7/4* (odds taken 04:12 GMT, Wednesday 9th September)
