Super League predictions: Round 30 selections
It is the biggest weekend of the year so far as the Super 8s reach their conclusion and we have three Super League predictions for the matches on Friday and Saturday.
St Helens effectively clinched their Super League semi-final spot by beating Salford, leaving one spot up for grabs. We have studied the odds ahead of the final round and in our Super League treble, a £5 stake will return around £35 if the recommended bets come in.
Castleford with six-point start against Hull @ 91/100
Hull were cheering for Salford on Thursday but now they must get the job done at Castleford or risk having to rely on Wakefield beating Wigan. The Black and Whites have beaten the dominant Tigers twice this year in three meetings and, against a weakened Castleford side, should get the victory they need to secure a trip to Leeds in the play-offs. Daryl Powell’s team will not make it easy for them though and Hull may settle for a narrow victory, with just two points separating these teams in each of their Super League fixtures this season.
Huddersfield with eight-point start against Leeds @ 91/100
This may be a dead rubber but there is plenty of motivation for Leeds with some players playing for their play-off place. The Rhinos will be determined to go into their home semi-final on the back of another victory but have struggled against Huddersfield over the years. Back the Giants to stick with Leeds as they aim to end their season on a high on home soil.
Wigan to overcome six-point handicap at Wakefield @ 91/100
St Helens’ win at Salford ended Wakefield’s hopes of making the top four and Wigan could also be out of contention by kick-off on Saturday afternoon. The champions appeared to be peaking at the right time before Castleford stopped them in their tracks last week. The Warriors should end their league season on a high against a Trinity side deflated by two costly narrow defeats.
