Penrith Punting Ponders: A closer look at odds and markets for the Penrith Panthers

Looking to become the first side to win four consecutive titles since the great St George Dragons side of the 50s and 60s, a NRL big season awaits the reigning champions, the Penrith Panthers.

Here’s a closer look at the odds and markets for the Panthers as they look to break new ground in the competition.

Unsurprising early favourites

Ivan Cleary’s side have dominated for the last three years despite key players leaving the club and 2024 might well be no different.

Once again some big names have moved on to pastures new but the Panthers never seem to be short of players just as talented, who are ready to fill the void.

Given their recent domination in the NRL, it’s little surprise the Panthers are the favourites in the Grand Final Winner market at 3.75.

Penrith managed to come from behind to beat the Brisbane Broncos in a thrilling grand final last season and the same teams to reach the showpiece game in the NRL this season is available at 6.50.

Head coach Ivan Cleary are 2.10 to reach the grand final this year, with Brisbane the second favourites at 2.50 in this market.

The Panthers are also favourites in the Regular Season Winner market at 3.25 to finish top of the ladder before the finals.

Penrith just edged out the Broncos last season on points difference, with both teams finishing on 42 points from their respective 24 games played.

Another tight battle at the top might well be on the cards this season, with the Broncos at 3.75 to finish top at the end of the regular campaign and Sydney Roosters at 8.50.

Individual markets

Looking at the Top Tryscorer market, Brian To’o is the shortest price of any Penrith player to score the most tries this term at 15.00.

Tylan May is next up for the Panthers in this market at 41.00, while Sunia Turuva is also available at the same price.

Further down the list, Izack Tago is priced at a generous 201.00, with Dylan Edwards even further out at 301.00.

In the Top Points Scorer market, the Dolphins’ Jamayne Isaako is the early favourite at 5.00 to finish top of the pile, with Penrith’s talisman Nathan Cleary available at 5.50.

Storm first up

The Panthers begin their title defence against the Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park on Friday 8th March.

Penrith are priced at 1.72 to start their 2024 domestic campaign with a win, while Melbourne are available at 2.15 to inflict an early blow on the reigning champions.
