Penrith Panthers Odds Shorten after Jamal Idris Signing
Australian Bookmaker Sportingbet have shortened the odds of the Panthers in all areas including to win the 2014 NRL Premiership after star signing Jamal Idris joins the Panthers on a 3 year deal.
The Panthers firmed into $17 today after starting the day at $21. Punters have tipped the Panthers to now make the top 8 in 2014 shortening into $1.95 from $2.10 and their top 4 chances with Sportingbet have gone from $5.50 into a respectable $4.25
“The Panthers had already been attracting plenty of interest in our 2014 markets after an impressive season last year followed by some key off-season recruitments and now the signing of Idris makes them even more dangerous” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.
al Idris leaving the Gold Coast Titans the odds for them have drifted from $2.75 out to $3.00 to make the top 8 and to win the premiership has shifted from $26 to $29.
Its amazing to see what one important player can do to the odds of a team this far out from the start of the season. It will be interesting to see how Idris takes the transition to the Panthers.
