Super League Betting Tips

Super League 2012By Mark Rawlinson

The regular Super League season is nearing its end and this weekend sees a string of important fixtures.

On Friday night it’s first v second as Wigan Warriors host Huddersfield Giants whilst on Sunday it’s the Hull derby as Kingston Rovers host FC.

Wigan Warriors v Huddersfield Giants

All eyes will be on this match tonight as second placed Wigan line up against Paul Anderson’s table-toppers Huddersfield but with a point splitting the two sides, the summit of the table could be looking different come 10pm.

The Giants came out on top when the two sides met back in February as they came through 22-10 winners at the John Smiths Stadium.

But crucially, the Warriors welcome back key player Sam Tonkins from injury with Pat Richards, Liam Farrell and Gil Dudson also coming back into Shaun Wane’s squad.

Huddersfield come off the back of a 48-32 victory over Castleford Tigers and they bring hooker Shaun Lunt and forward Jason Chan into their squad.

With home advantage, Wigan are slight favourites to win the match and Sportingbet are offering the best odds of 5/6 of them winning.

Ladbrokes meanwhile provide the best odds on a Huddersfield victory at 15/8. You can watch the game live on Sky Sports 3 from 8pm.

Elsewhere on Friday night, two teams that have their play-off places cemented face teams in the lower clutches of the table.

Fourth placed Leeds Rhinos make the trip to 13th placed Salford City Reds and are big favourites to take the two points. 1/12 from Ladbrokes are the best odds available for a Leeds win whilst Salford can be found at 8/1 with a number of outlets including Stan James.

It’s the same case in the other match with no bets being viable with St. Helens at 1/100 to beat rock-bottom London Broncos, who are at 25/1 with Paddy Power to cause a huge upset.

Warrington Wolves v Wakefield Trinity Wildcats

The only match on Saturday is the 3pm kick-off as third placed Warrington Wolves host strugglers Wakefield, who still harbour hopes of a top eight play-off spot.

The Wolves are in terrific form having won nine of their last ten matches and full-back Brett Hodgson and hooker Michael Monaghan are set to return for this match.

Warrington are 1/14 on with Paddy Power to win whilst the best odds on a Wakefield win are with Stan James at 8/1.

Hull Derby

Then on Sunday, rivals Hull KR and Hull FC lock horns with both sides looking to guarantee their play-off spots.

As things stand, the Rovers line up seventh in the table whilst the visitors are two points behind in eighth.

The last meeting between the sides came during the Manchester Magic weekend when Hull FC came out on top as 22-16 winners whilst the Rovers won their first meeting of the season at Hull FC’s KC Stadium.

With home advantage, KR are the slight favourites with the bookies and Stan James amongst others, are offering evens. Betfred offer the best prices on a Hull FC victory at 11/10.
