Round 5 – Match 7 Preview: Penrith Panthers v Sydney Roosters

With the home ground advantage this week and a narrow win against the Knights last round, Penrith have been installed as the favourites to defeat the Roosters at CUA Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Roosters, however, have had the better form this year winning three from four including their Round 4 smashing of the Broncos.

One of the interesting match ups of the round, with Sydney able to score stacks of points but Penrith proving last week that they can come back and score plenty themselves.

Will be a high scoring game either way and if the Roosters can stay on top of their ball possession they could sneak in with another victory here and make amends for the 48 – 6 thrashing the Panthers gave them last time they met back in May last year.

But for whatever reason, if there is one team that makes the Roosters nervous it has to be the Panthers so stay posted for this one.

Current Head-to-Head Odds: Panthers $1.80 – Roosters $2.05
