Penrith and Roosters Race To 10 Point Lead
September 09, 2014
The Roosters and Penrith will collide in a 1 v 4 qualifying final in week one of the NRL play-offs and Sportingbet have an offer on the match which may have punters celebrating long before full time.
The Firm which offers up to $200 in bonus bets to new customers have a special market on the NRL finals which will see customers win if a team they select leads by 10 points anytime in their match. Punters can choose the Roosters or Penrith in Sportingbet’s special 10 point market and if either team leads by 10 or more during the qualifying final Sportingbet will pay out on that side. It applies to first bets only with a maximum wager of $100.
The Panthers have been the surprise packet of the NRL this season with their top 4 finish stunning most experts. They secured a second chance in the finals and ended the Warriors top 8 ambitions with a dominant win over the Kiwis in the last regular game of the season. Penrith’s ball control was immense in slippery conditions with the mountain men completing 32 of 40 sets in a 16 point win.
NRL premiership winner Jamie Soward is guiding his side nicely around the park and young fullback Matt Moylan is well on the way to being one of the game’s megastars. But Penrith’s team efforts are what saw them steal a top 4 spot, can they overcome the odds again and knock off the Minor Premiers?
Beating the Roosters won’t be easy, nobody’s managed that feat since July. A run of 5 straight wins saw the Chooks come from the clouds to steal the Minor Premiership from Manly and South Sydney. The Roosters beat the Bunnies in their in round 26 showdown to secure back to back first place finishes. Now they’re aiming for successive premierships, and if they succeed coach Trent Robinson will create history, he’ll be the first coach to win consecutive premierships in his first 2 years.
The Roosters powered past Penrith 32-12 in round 19 racing to a 10 point lead by the 17th minute. And if they start fast in the final punters who back them in Sportingbet’s special market will make money in no time. Remember your team doesn’t have to win by 10, they don’t even have to win, as long as they lead by 10 at any time you’ll be a winner no matter what.
