Manchester Magic Super League Betting Tips
Super League once again hits the Etihad Stadium in Manchester over the next couple of days for another bumper weekend action.
All 14 teams are involved in the feast of rugby league, with highlights including Hull FC v Hull KR, Wigan v Leeds Rhinos and Warrington v St. Helens.
Hull FC v Hull KR Betting Tips
Hull FC will be out for revenge on Saturday afternoon against cross-city rivals Hull KR after a late drop goal from Craig Hill snatched the narrowest of 21-20 victories at the KC Stadium back in April.
Lee Radford’s side go into this match just above Rovers in eight place, with both sides level on 10 points apiece but go into the clash with just one win in four, with back-to-back defeats to Wakefield and Wigan in May.
A pelvic injury keeps centre Josh Crooks out for FC, whilst Dean Hadley returns in place of Josh Bowden and Jordan Rankin.
Hull KR have not won a match in Super League since their victory over FC four weeks ago, most recently drawing 16-16 with Salford Red Devils last Saturday. Coach Craig Sandercock makes just one change from last week’s side with Jonathann Walker replacing New Zealander Wayne Ulugia.
The result of this one is tough to call and it’s sure to be another close affair. My BET OF THE DAY is a Hull FC win by less than 12 points at 5/2 with Paddy Power.
Watch all the action live on Saturday on Sky Sports 1, with this match kicking off at 5pm.
Wigan Warriors v Leeds Rhinos Betting Tips
That is followed by another tasty looking match as early pace-setters Leeds Rhinos meet 2013 Super League champions Wigan Warriors.
Leeds are on an excellent run with six consecutive wins in all competitions, most recently a 22-14 win at West Yorkshire rivals Castleford Tigers, who had made an excellent start to the season. Coach Brian McDermott names an unchanged 19-man squad from that game and key man Ryan Hall could return from injury.
Wigan come into this game third but were well beaten by Leeds 28-12 when the two teams met at Headingley just two weeks ago.
Apart from that defeat, the Warriors have won all nine of their most recent games, most recently beating Hull FC last Friday.
Coach Shaun Wane’s task is further complicated with the injuries to Tony Clubb, Gil Dudson and Jordan James who join skipper Sean O’Loughlin on the sidelines this weekend.
Warrington Wolves v St. Helens Betting Tips
The pick of Sunday’s action sees second placed St. Helens take on a Warrington side who haven’t been shining at their brightest this season, in another local derby.
Warrington’s wavering form has seen them pick up just two wins in their last five Super League games, including damaging defeats to the likes of Castleford Tigers and Bradford Bulls although they beat Catalan Dragons 42-10 last weekend.
Injuries have hindered the Cheshire side’s season so far but coach Tony Smith is boosted with the returns of joint-captain Ben Westwood and Brad Dwyer.
Following a trio of defeats to Wigan, Leeds and most surprisingly Widnes Vikings in April, the Saints have recovered with wins over London Broncos and Bradford in the last couple of weeks.
They won comfortably 38-8 when the sides last met on the opening day of the season and are 8/15 favourites with William Hill to win on Sunday. Ladbrokes offer the best odds on a Warrington win at 7/4.
The game is live from 5pm on Sunday afternoon.
