RUGBY LEAGUE BETTING: The Super League takes a break this weekend as the Challenge Cup semi finals take centre stage; Leeds vs St Helens is Saturday’s mouth-watering clash.
Leeds v St Helens: BBC 1 Sat 14.00:
The formbook marginally favours St Helens ahead of their Challenge Cup semi-final showdown with Leeds and accordingly Saints are slender favourites, Stan James making them 5/6 to reach Wembley at the expense of the Rhinos; bet365’s 5/4 outsiders. Partybets however, can’t separate the pair, pricing both at 10/11 ahead of this tough-to-call clash and with little between them, it might be prudent to back the team with a head start in the handicaps which on this occasion is Leeds; a 10/11 chance (bet365) aided by a two-point cushion.
Warrington v Catalans: BBC2 Sun 15.00:
In the other semi meanwhile, at 10/11 (William Hill), Warrington should comfortably cover a twelve-point deficit against Catalans Dragons. Warrington will be keen to bounce back after a narrow defeat to St Helens last weekend and Catalans will be unfortunate top feel that wrath this weekend.
