Wigan Warriors currently lie just one point behind Super League leaders Warrington but Michael Maguire’s charges will leapfrog the Wolves if they get the better of Castleford.
The mid-table Tigers would move above Leeds Rhinos into sixth with a victory at the DW Stadium but it’s the competition’s defending champions that are overwhelming favourites at 1/40 with Betfred, while the visitors are a 20/1 shot at bet365 to spring a surprise.
Cas have suffered back-to-back heavy defeats, against Warrington and Catalans, conceding over a hundred points in the process so a fairly comfortable Wigan triumph looks likely. Subsequently, the hosts will fancy themselves to cover the 28-point start afforded to Castleford in the handicaps, where bet365 quote Wigan at 10/11.
Wigan (-28) to beat Castleford – 10/11 (bet365)
