In this weekend’s Super League play-offs, regular season runners up St Helens entertain Warrington on Friday night and it’s the hosts that were favourites earlier in the week at 8/11 with bet365. However, the Wolves have been steadily backed over the last few days and they’re now evens at best (William Hill), the same price that Betdaq chalk against Saints. On the basis of the odds then it’s a tough one to call, but buoyed by their Challenge Cup triumph and with a four-point start in the handicaps at 4/7 (Ladbrokes), the visitors could be the team to follow at Knowsley Road.
Elsewhere, there should also be wins for league leaders Wigan (4/11, Totesport) and Huddersfield (2/11, Stan James) against Leeds and Crusaders, although the latter are given a chunky 16-point start by Betfred in the handicaps at even money and look worth considering on those terms. Meanwhile, at the KC Stadium, it’s a Hull derby and visitors Hull KR have been underestimated a touch; they’re 11/8 at 888Sport to come out on top and 10/11 in Victor Chandler’s handicap betting, where they benefit from a four-point cushion.
