Panthers v Roosters: NRL betting preview, free tip & TV details
Sydney Roosters can rule the roost in Penrith opener
Where to watch
Sky Sports Arena, 8.35am Saturday
Roosters to win by one to 12 points
2pts 2-1 bet365
Sydney Roosters roll into Penrith as NRL and World Club champions and they should get their domestic campaign off to a perfect start.
The Roosters were utterly convincing in their 20-12 win over Betfred Super League champions St Helens last month and they can get their league defence up and running.
Skinny match odds of 1-2 are best avoided but the 2-1 that the champions get home by no more than two converted tries looks the way to go.
The Roosters ran out 22-6 winners when the sides last met at the end of August and they can tame the Panthers once more.
