RUGBY LEAGUE BETTING: Live on Skysports 2: Fri 19.30 & Sat 17.00: Live Super League action on Friday night is Hull v Wigan and Saturday’s live game is Hull KR v Bradford. Compare Super League odds.
Wigan went down to second-placed Warrington last weekend and despite being Partybets’s 1/3 favourites this evening, the Super League leaders might find themselves in difficulty again at Hull FC’s KC Stadium, where the hosts are a generous 3/1 with Betfred to come out on top. The hosts are also given a ten-point start in William Hill’s handicap betting and after their morale-boosting derby clash last week; that looks a little generous.
In Saturday’s televised clash, Hull KR can make it a city double by inflicting a tenth straight defeat on Bradford, a result priced by Stan James at 3/10. In the handicaps, the Robins, at even money (888Sport), should also cover the Bulls’ ten-point cushion.
Buoyant Warrington are 1/5 with bet365 to follow up that impressive victory against Wigan by securing a maximum haul at bottom club Catalans, however they may have to settle for a narrow success and so the value in the handicaps looks to be a flutter on the Dragons, at 10/11 (Totesport), aided by a 14-point start.
At the Willows, Victor Chandler chalk a chunky 4/1 against a Salford success against the patchy Leeds Rhinos, who are just 1/4 (Betdaq) to clinch the points and the Reds, handed a 14-point leg-up by Ladbrokes, are a steal at 10/11 in the handicaps.
Elsewhere, Betfred rate St Helens at 2/7 to defeat Wakefield and at 10/11, Saints should also account for Paddy Power’s ten-point deficit, Huddersfield’s home advantage can be crucial in them overhauling a 14-point margin (10/11, Jaxx.com) against Harlequins while Crusaders are also primed for success on their own patch; the Welsh outfit priced by Ladbrokes at an enticing 11/10 to send Castleford home empty-handed.
