Youngster Dallin Watene-Zelezniak is Penrith’s pick this weekend, and is currently available at particularly generous odds of $9.50 to score in a Panthers victory at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Saturday’s other game will see a bitter Queensland derby, with the eighth-placed Broncos charged with the unenviable task of playing the Cowboys in Townsville in a sudden-death fixture.

$2 lines will also be available on all NRL fixtures with Ladbrokes Australia this weekend! Available two hours prior to each match, back your team to cover their respective markets and double your money! $2 lines may prove to be a particularly smart betting play on Saturday’s match between the Broncos and Cowboys, with many tipping this match to be the week’s most one-sided.
