Wests Tigers Preview – Can Wests make it three in a row?

Wests claimed a very solid 34-6 win against the Canterbury Bulldogs last weekend.

That left them with back to back success and a nice bit of momentum going forward into this tough clash.

The Tigers are now W4 L3 for the campaign so are doing alright for themselves in the top half of the table.

But this presents them with a huge chance to make up some ground on the top four. The third-placed Panthers are just two points ahead of them.

Wests easily outpace the Panthers in terms of scoring this season, but cannot match them defensively.

Wests have conceded an average of 20 points per game in this campaign, with the Panthers having conceded just 14 per fixture.

But swinging back around other points score, Wests Tigers are averaging 25 per fixture, five more than their opponents.

Our betting prediction:
Panthers 1-6 winning margin

(odds taken 0130 GMT Friday, 3rd July)


Neither of these have a very good track record at the Bankwest, Wests having secured 8 wins in their last 21 visits.

The Tigers won the last meeting between the two, a 30-4 success back in May last year.

That did, however, snap a five match losing streak that they had been on against Penrith.


Penrith Panthers Preview – Can Panthers re-assert themselves against Wests?

The Penrith Panthers have lost only two of their last nine games played against the Tigers so are well ahead there.

It has also been back to back wins for them in the Premiership having taken down the Rabbitohs last weekend by an eight-point margin.

The Panthers have been involved in some tighter games, just one of their last five have been settled by more than an 8-point margin.

It is a W5 L2 record than the Panthers have secured this season as they look to establish themselves in the top four.

A win in this one would go a long way to achieving that without question.

It is the handicap margins that really interest us as we don’t think the points difference is going to be big.
