Live on Skysports 1: Fri 20.00: After a break for the Challenge Cup semi-finals, Super League action returns this evening with Leeds hosting Bradford and the Rhinos are emphatic 1/5 favourites via bet365 to follow up last week’s cup triumph over Wigan by getting the better of the their cash-strapped neighbours. Brian McDermott’s troops are also evens (BetVictor) to cover a dozen-point start in the handicaps.
In Friday’s televised clash, Skybet rate Catalans Dragons at 8/11 to overcome St Helens and the French outfit’s home advantage should prove crucial in Perpignan, where the hosts have just a couple of points to overhaul in the handicaps at 10/11 (Skybet).
Leaders Wigan are in action tomorrow and they’re hard to oppose as they visit struggling London Broncos. The home side made a change in the coaching department this week, installing Tony Rea but it’s unlikely to reap short-term rewards with the Warriors a decent bet at 10/11 in bet365’s handicaps when starting 24-points in arrears.
In Monday’s Hull derby meanwhile, Stan James post 4/7 against Hull Kingston Rovers sending their local rivals Hull FC home from Craven Park empty-handed. The same firm give the Robins a handicap deficit of four points to account for but with a six-point advantage at 10/11 (bet365), the visitors could be worth considering.
Double on Catalans (-2) and Leeds (-12) – 13/5 (bet365)
