Bet Of The Day May 18 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Panthers have won four of the last five meetings
  • Panthers have won their last seven games at Suncorp
  • Adam Reynolds is out for the Broncos
  • Panthers have the best defence in the NRL
  • Panthers have kept their opponents to Under 14.5 points in their last three games
  • Broncos have scored Under 14.5 points in their last five defeats vs Panthers
  • Panthers have scored 44+ points in three of their last five wins

We’re off to the NRL for today’s best bet as the Panthers look to inflict back-to-back defeats on the Broncos for the first time this season.

Brisbane have enjoyed a successful start to the season, but they’ve also had a soft draw and played the bulk of their matches in Queensland.

The Broncos were crushed by the Rabbitohs a few weeks ago and were outclassed on the road against the Storm last week. Brisbane have been found out by the best teams in recent weeks and we think they are in for a long night again.

Especially due to the injury to star halfback Adam Reynolds, who is missing this clash due to the head knock he received last week.

Penrith have won four of their last five meetings with the Broncos and produced their most dominant performance of the season last week, crushing the Roosters 48-4.

When the Panthers have beaten the Broncos, they usually do it on the back of a rock solid defence. Indeed, the Panthers have kept the Broncos to Under 14.5 points in their last five straight wins against them.

Penrith have by far the best defence in the competition again this season and have kept their last three opponents Under 14.5 points.

Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai had their best games of the season last week and they will be keen to maintain that level heading into Origin, especially against a team full of Queenslanders.

The Panthers have also scored 44+ points in three of their last five wins this season, indicating when they do win, it’s usually by a massive margin.

All signs point to a comfortable Panthers win tonight, with Reynolds unable to lead the Broncos’ attack.
