⏰ 4 August 2023 - 20:00 AEST
🏟 Stadium - BlueBet Stadium

Looking to make the most out of this thrilling event? AusBetSites has got you covered, offering a comprehensive array of betting odds from the 3 best betting sites, spanning across 23 markets. As of now, bookmakers are placing Penrith Panthers as the favourites to emerge victorious with odds set at 1.25.
Penrith are flying at the top of the ladder and looking strong to make it a three-peat of premierships, coming into this encounter on the back of nine wins from their last 10 games. The Panthers won most of those games without Nathan Cleary, who has returned over the last couple of weeks and put on a halfbacks clinic in the most recent 28-0 shut-out of the Sharks.
With Cleary fit and firing, it’s tough to see who can stop the Panthers on current form. Melbourne certainly have the firepower, but uncharacteristically, their consistency from week to week has been poor this season. The Storm suffered a disappointing loss to the Knights a fortnight ago, but bounced back strongly last week with a thumping 46-16 victory at home over the Eels. With Craig Bellamy steering the ship, Cam Munster, Jahrome Hughes and Harry Grant in the spine and Ryan Papenhuyzen hopefully set for a return before the finals, no team will be wanting to run into Melbourne come September.
