RUGBY LEAGUE BETTING: Live on Skysports1: Fri 20.00 & Sun 17.30: Friday night sees Warrington play Hull KR and Sunday pits Crusaders v Bradford Bulls. Compare odds and bet at the best prices
Warrington v Hull KR:
Warrington are in a nice patch of form at the moment and would only be opposed by a brave punter, 2/9 with Skybet to vanquish Hull KR tonight.
Hull KR just haven’t impressed on the road, Boylesports’ 5/1 seems justified. Sportingbet’s -12 handicap on Warrington at 10/11 seems just about right and a good bet to start off with.
Hull v Salford:
Hull are short at 1/6 with Stan James, perhaps too short, so a look at the handicaps reveals a +16 on Salford at 10/11 with Paddy Power is a great bet here. Salford are very game opponents and +16 is too generous.
St Helens v Huddersfield:
This tight encounter sees heavy scoring St Helens take on Huddersfield who managed to stop the rot against Bradford last week. 3 straight defeats was ended in spectacular fashion in Bradford but the sheer amount of times St Helens go across the line at home will make them nervous. St Helens are 1/2 with Betfred but they have lost 2 games recently, albeit away. For now, they maintain the home form and the straight up 1/2 is good.
Harlequins v Leeds:
Saturday’s only game could be a close encounter. Leeds are starting to rev up for the playoffs and Harlequins have hit a nice patch. Sportingbet offer a really tempting 21/10 about Quins, Leeds are 4/7 at Skybet. Something about Quins’ +8 handicap at 10/11 with Sportingbet is very tempting, especially considering the amount of Leeds players on England duty this weekend.
Wakefield v Wigan:
Wigan should roll over Wakefield to strengthen their position at the top, Skybet’s -4 handicap at 10/11 is good value.
Crusaders v Bradford:
A difficult one to predict as Crusaders simply concede too many but Bradford flit in and out of form far to easily. The bookies reckon for a solid Bradford win at 11/20 (Betdaq), but you never know which Bulls are turning up, especially without Nick Scruton. Crusaders +8 at 10/11 (Skybet) looks the bet.
