Rabbitohs Ready for Revenge against Penrith and they're at Small Odds to Deliver a Big Win
July 28, 2015
Bookmaker.com.au’s regular refund on Monday NRL has switched to Sunday in round 20, for Souths showdown with Penrith. The offer is still the same though with losing head to head wagers refunded with a bonus bet if your selection is leading at half time. The Rabbitohs are red hot favourites despite losing to the same opposition just 4 weeks ago. A lot has changed since though; the Bunnies are now bouncing while the Panthers are more like pussy cats. Can the visitors cause an upset at odds of $5.75, or are the reining premiers $1.14 for a reason?
Panthers Plummet as Rabbitohs Rediscover Rhythm
Penrith were comfortable 20-6 winners over the Rabbitohs in round 17, but haven’t managed another victory since. They’ve conceded a conceded 110 points in their past 3 losses and now find themselves 2 wins out of the top 8 heading into this weekend. Another loss on Sunday would surely end any finals ambitions.
A week off after losing to Penrith has refreshed the Rabbitohs. They’ve produced back to back wins, following up a strong performance against the Dragons by annihilating Newcastle 52-6. Star fullback Greg Inglis broke his tryscoring drought with a first half hat-trick and will be out to make up for missing the match against Penrith through State of Origin duties.
Rabbitohs Ready for another Try Fest
GI is a $1.65 to a try at any stage, $8 for the last and the same price to grab the first four pointer. Souths centre Dylan Walker who also scored a hat-trick against the Knights is also $8 to get the game’s opener. Walker’s wing partner and Rabbitohs leading tryscorer Alex Johsnton is your first try favourite, paying $6 to cross the white line before anyone else. Joel Reddy grabbed Bunnies only try when the two sides last met. He’s at $7 to be first on the board.
Handicaps and Margin Odds
The Rabbitohs are around $1.90 to cover the line which is set at -16 on Bookmakercomau while they’re just over $1.60 to win by 13 or more. The Bunnies are at $3.25 to win 1-12 with Penrith paying $7 to triumph by the same margin. The Panthers price to win by 13+ as they did back at the beginning of July, is a whopping $21.
