We’re switching from Super League predictions to Challenge Cup betting tips this week and are hoping to land a 6/1 handicap treble.
Teams are just two wins away from Wembley, so there are sure to be plenty of thrills and spills in these quarter-final clashes.
Huddersfield to beat Catalans by more than six points @ 91/100
New coach Simon Woolford arrived from Australia just in time to watch the Giants beat Salford 24-16 in Super League on Friday night, making it four straight wins for the Yorkshire club. The 43-year-old former Canberra captain said: “I’m pretty well aware of how important the Challenge Cup is. We’ve put ourselves in a really good position and to have a quarter-final at home is a bonus.”
Leigh with 14 points start at Leeds @ 91/100
Championship side Leigh showed plenty of spirit and skill to beat Salford 22-10 in the last round and have since played well in their own division, romping to a 42-20 victory at Featherstone and then only going down 28-26 to Toronto at the Summer Bash. Leeds should be able to limp into the semis, but this is a big handicap mark to overcome with their injury problems.
Wigan to beat Warrington by more than two points @ 91/100
The Warriors were clearly unsettled by the news that Shaun Wane will be leaving at the end of the season when playing poorly in defeat at Hull KR last time out, but we’re hoping they can now get back to the form of a 38-10 Magic Weekend win over Warrington in Newcastle. Wigan were clinical with ball in hand and scrambled superbly in defence at St James’ Park.
