Live on Skysports 2: Sat 17.30: Wigan and St Helens head to Old Trafford, can Wigan add the Grand Final to their Regular Season win?
It’s Grand Final weekend in Super League as local rivals and the regular season’s top two, Wigan and St Helens, lock horns. Betfred lean towards the Warriors, making them odds on at 4/5 for Old Trafford glory while Saints are 11/8 at 888Sport to put three consecutive Grand Final defeats to Leeds behind them.
It should be a feisty affair and there’s little to separate the two teams but there’s slightly more pressure on Wigan and a Keiron Cunningham-inspired Saints therefore look the pick in the handicaps at evens (Victor Chandler) benefiting from a four-point start.
Elsewhere, it looks set to be a tight affair especially in the early stages when enthusiastic defences can dominate and William Hill offer a tasty 8/11 for more points to be scored in the second period. Meanwhile, in the first try scorer betting, newly-crowned Man of Steel Pat Richards catches the eye at 8/1 with Ladbrokes.
