Rugby League: Raiders still in with title shout.

Byline: Mark Langdon

BRISBANE host Penrith this morning in the NRL game of the week, but it could pay to wait until Sunday morning for a top wager, writes Mark Langdon.

The Panthers have been punted off the boards in Australia receiving 3.5 points. However, it would be dangerous to write off the Broncos at this stage.

Instead, take Canberra to beat Manly by more than four points at the Brookvale Oval.

The Green machine have been the surprise package of the season and they could still end up as Minor Premiers.

They deserved something out of last week's 20-16 loss at the Roosters, where they were unlucky to concede a late try.

The Raiders have decent players in the likes of Jamaal Lolesi, Mark McLinden and Adam Mogg, while Ruben Wiki is an inspirational leader.

The Sea Eagles are poor defensively, having conceded at least 20 points in their last six games, and have a tough task to stay within the handicap.

Recommendation

Canberra -4

4pts 9-10 (Bet Direct)
