Round seven of the Super League sees giants Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors collide at Headingley, while Warrington Wolves start the round rock bottom after losing all six matches so far.
Our accumulator of nearly 16/1 came in last week after six wins out of six so here’s hoping our Super League predictions prove correct again.
We have studied the odds ahead of the latest weekend of action and in our Super League accumulator tips, a £5 bet will return around £75 if all six recommended bets oblige.
Salford to beat St Helens @ 6/5
Salford head into the game on the back of a 46-10 victory at Widnes, in which they scored nine tries, and having won three of their last four matches, including home triumphs over Warrington and leaders Castleford. St Helens secured a late win at Catalans before seeing off Warrington but the Red Devils will have too much for them on Thursday.
Wigan to win at Leeds @ 13/10
Although Wigan have dropped points in their last two games – drawing at home to Huddersfield and losing 22-20 at the DW Stadium to Hull – they hold a 100 per cent record on their travels having beaten Salford, Widnes and Warrington. Leeds may have won three in a row following a slow start but we think the Warriors to turn up against one of their biggest rivals.
Castleford to beat Huddersfield @ 3/50
Castleford came from 14-0 down to beat Catalans 43-26 to reclaim top spot last week, running in seven tries in the process. The free-flowing Tigers have crossed for 40 tries in their six matches so far and should have far too much pace and power for a Giants side which has failed to win in their last four outings, conceding 122 points while scoring just 36 in reply.
Hull to win at Warrington @ 11/10
Hull held off a late fightback from Wigan to prevail 22-20 at the DW Stadium last Friday and sit second with five wins from six games. Lee Radford’s side have won four matches in a row, including all three fixtures away from home, and can add to Warrington’s woes. The Wolves are bottom of the pile having failed to pick up a point all season.
Leigh to beat Widnes @ 1/4
Leigh have made a solid start to life back in the Super League with three wins from seven matches. All of those have come on home turf and they can maintain that 100 per cent record against a Widnes outfit who are yet to win, have accumulated just one point from six games, and have allowed 112 points in their last three encounters, managing only 22 in return.
Catalans to beat Wakefield @ 1/4
After starting the season with two successive wins, Catalans have now gone four matches without a victory despite a couple of dogged displays. Five of Wakefield’s six matches have seen a winning margin of eight or less points but the Dragons can make home advantage count in another tight tussle.
