RUGBY LEAGUE BETTING: SkySports 3: Fri 20.00 & SkySports 2: Sat 17.45: The Friday televised game goes to Hull v Wakefield and on Saturday the big game is St Helens against a stuttering Leeds.
In a re-run on last year’s Grand Final, St Helens and Leeds lock horns on Saturday and with home advantage it’s Saints that are expected to come out on top; they’re Betfred’s 10/11 slight favourite, while bet365 make Saints 11/10 with a –2.5 point handicap.
Friday evening sees top placed Wigan entertain bottom placed Harlequins in what should be a heavy scoring victory for the Warriors. Outright betting is approaching pointless but Ladbrokes offer an attractive 1/1 about Wigan with a –20 point handicap. The other Friday game sees Hull take on Wakefield, Hull are 4/9 favs with Paddy Power despite a heavy injury list which sees another debutant, Paul McShane, come in as hooker.
On Sunday, Warrington (3/20, Betdaq) should brush aside Catalans but the most interesting tie is at the bottom where Castleford and Salford battle it out for a vital 2 points. Castleford head into the tie as 4/9 favs with William Hill as Salford have struggled to consistently put points on the board.
