Penrith and Canterbury battle it out in Sydney on Saturday with the final spot in the Grand Final up for grabs.

The Panthers have defied the odds all year. Injury after injury has plagued their season, yet from Round 10 right up until the end of the regular season, they never dropped out of the Top 4. In the first week of the finals, they were given no chance to beat the Roosters, paying $4.25 against the Minor Premiers. But after toppling the Chooks by one point thanks to some Jamie Soward brilliance, they are one win away from the Grand Final. James Segeyaro has scored the first try on four occasions in 2014, and he looks value at to cross first on Saturday.

A month ago they were $17 dollars to win the Premiership, but after making the final four, they've come right into . One anxious punter is hoping the Doggies can continue their impressive form, dropping over $9,000 on the men from Bankstown back in May.

If history is anything to go by, Penrith should come away with the victory, having won 11 of their last 14 games. Ivan Cleary's men come into this game as slight underdogs, and punters see the value in their price, with more than double the amount of bets rolling in going on the Panthers.
