The Penrith Panthers continue to look unstoppable at the moment as they picked up yet another win last weekend.

The ladder leaders will look to continue their hot winning streak as they face up to the Wests Tigers on the weekend.

Things have gotten a little sticky this season for Wests who were beaten by the Roosters last weekend, their fourth loss in their last five.

Penrith Panthers Preview – Penrith march on

It was a 38-12 win that the Penrith Panthers took against the Cronulla Sharks last weekend.

That was their fifth straight win and it leaves them on a W13 D1 L1 record for this campaign.

They have title credentials written all over them at the moment and the only team to have tallied more points this season is the Sydney Roosters.

Penrith are averaging 25 points per game this season, which is actually only three-per-game on average more than Wests have managed.

But there is a clear difference between the two of them when it comes to defence.

The Panthers have only conceded an average of 13 points per game this season.

That is in contrast to the hefty 21 points per game on average that Wests have shipped.

Not too surprisingly, Penrith are the red-hot favourites in the match outright for this match.

Our betting prediction:
Penrith 1-12 winning margin

Bet at Betfred

(odds taken 0600 GMT, Tuesday, 25th August)


So we need a good look at the margins to try and pick out some value in the handicaps for Penrith Panthers vs Wests Tigers betting.

The average winning margin for the Panthers this season is 14.5 points.

With that in mind we can confidently nestle on a Panthers -12 handicap at 21/20* (odds taken 0600 GMT, Tuesday, 25th August).

We are taking into consideration that the average losing margin for Wests is nearly 20 points.


Wests Tigers Preview – Tough ask for the Tigers

It was a 38-16 loss that the Tigers fell too last weekend when they faced the Roosters.

There was no disgrace in that loss but it leaves Wests with a W1 L4 record in their last five games.

The one victory in that sequence for them happened by a one-point margin over the bottom side Canterbury Bulldogs.

The Tigers did stay in touch with the Panthers when they met them for the first time this season back in July.

It was a 12-19 loss that they suffered then against Penrith.

We have to examine the head to head a little deeper as well, and when we do we see even less of a chance for Wests.
