Wests Tigers and Penrith Panthers is our NRL Week 13 Game of the Round.
The best bets for this big Friday night clash have been offloaded and are ready to fill our pockets with cash.
head to head
June 4th 7:55pm
State of Origin means we will see a weakened Penrith Panthers will face off against Wests Tigers on Friday night.
Winning momentum for the Wests Tigers coupled with Nathan Clearly not being on the field spells a big opportunity for the home team to dart itself up the ladder.
A 34-18 victory over the the Dragons last week saw the Tigers climb to 13th spot on the table and now they face a Panthers side who will be without Jarome Luai, Brian To’o, Isaah Yeo, Liam Martin, Api Koroisau and Kurt Capewell all away on Origin duty.
This time of the year was always going to prove a tough one for Panthers coach Ivan Cleary and replacing his stars will be difficult.
But the premiership favourite is more than capable given the winning mentality and strong on-field system this football club has in place.
Panthers still win this, but only just.
Suggested Bet: Wests Tigers +5.5 at $1.98

Clint Gutherson/Cody Walker
Luciano Leilua simply loves scoring a Leichardt Oval.
He has managed to score four tries in his last five matches at the venue and he comes up enormous odds to the score the first try of the game here.
Has to be worth a small bet given the price we are getting.
The other player that peaks the interest is Robert Jennings.
The Penrith winger has been recalled to the side due to the host of Panthers out on Origin duty and he will be looking to find space early.
Luciano Leilua first try scorer at $31
Robert Jennings first try scorer at $10
total points scored
Historically, games between these two clubs have been relatively low scoring.
You have to go all the way back to 2016 the last time these two teams scored over 46.5 points when playing each other.
The most recent game (Round 16, 2020) saw the Panthers and Wests Tigers combine for a 36-point match.
Given the Panthers’ attacking options have been decimated due to the State of Origin selections, it’s hard to see how this goes into the overs category.
Have to side with the unders in this match.
Suggested Bet: Total points scored under 46.5 points at $1.90
