Welcome to our Penrith Panthers v Wests Tigers match preview, prediction and odds update for their NRL clash at Panthers Stadium on Saturday, August 29.
This is the final match on NRL Super Saturday, with the earlier matches pitting NZ Warriors v Newcastle Knights in Tamworth from 3pm, and Cronulla v North Queensland Cowboys at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium from 5.30pm.
Penrith have won eight out of their past 10 matches against Wests Tigers.
The Panthers won the the most recent encounter 19-12 after coming from 10-4 down at half-time in a spiteful clash. Joey Leilua was sin-binned late in the match for a blatant high shot on Panthers match-winner Dylan Edwards.
Wests Tigers are in ninth place on the NRL table, four points behind eighth-placed Cronulla, and need to cause a massive upset and win this match or their finals chances are all but dead.

Wests Tigers/Penrith half-time/full-time double
The Panthers have been quick out of blocks often this season, but we’ll take a punt that Wests Tigers will surprise early before the home team is too strong in the end. This bet requires Tigers to lead at half-time and the Panthers to lead at full-time.
