We’ve got Super League predictions for all six matches at this year’s Magic Weekend and are hoping to land an 11/1-plus pay-out if they all prevail.
Anfield will stage the latest renewal of British rugby league’s mid-season spectacular and every team will be keen to impress in Liverpool.
Wakefield to beat Catalans @ 13/10
We’re going for a bit of value by siding with the slight underdogs in Saturday’s curtain-raiser. Trinity boss Chris Chester was left fuming by last week’s 42-34 at London, despite a late rally making the scoreline respectable after the Broncos led 42-6. Expect a backlash from Wakefield on Merseyside. The Dragons won well against Wigan at Camp Nou but put a lot into that historic occasion and losing influential forward Greg Bird to injury is a big blow.
Hull to beat Huddersfield @ 2/5
The Black and Whites have been a Jekyll and Hyde outfit this season but there was a lot to like about their 19-12 triumph over Warrington in a bruising encounter at the Halliwell Jones Stadium. Lee Radford insisted there was “tons of good energy” in that performance and Hull will now be determined to cement their place in the top four.
Warrington to beat Wigan @ 1/2
Wolves boss Steve Price refused to be too downbeat about that defeat, stating: “It was a game where we had our chances. I think we got held up over the try-line three or four times but just couldn’t convert it to points. We have still got a good football team there.” That blip followed on from a trio of impressive victories and their overall form is still far superior to a Wigan side in transition this season.
Salford to beat Hull KR @ 2/5
The Red Devils suffered a heart-breaking loss at St Helens last time out, going down 32-30 after conceding a try with just 35 seconds left on the clock, but they can gain compensation here if still in similar form. Salford have been unsettled by several key players attracting interest from other clubs, but star scrum-half Jackson Hastings said: “It’s business as usual, it’s all part of the job. We’re doing really well. It’s all positive at the moment.”
Leeds to beat London @ 2/5
It has been a tough period for the Rhinos, with Dave Furner sacked as head coach just 14 matches into a three-year contract and then interim boss Richard Agar losing his first Super League game in charge at home to Castleford. However, there is still plenty of talent in the Leeds line-up and it will be hugely disappointing if they do not prove too good for a game, but outgunned London outfit now that Agar has had a bit more time to get them back on track.
St Helens to beat Castleford @ 3/10
Saints were given an almighty scare by Salford, but their fighting spirit shone through and that can act as a wake-up call ahead of this contest. Justin Holbrook’s side have lost only one of their 15 Super League games this year and sit six points clear of Warrington at the top of the table, with Castleford six more back in fifth. After rallying to pip the Red Devils, the coach declared: “The good thing is that we stayed calm and you have got to win all different ways during the year. We will learn a lot from this.”
