Wigan to cover handicap in titanic Super League clash with Warrington

Castleford Tigers and Wigan Warriors maintained their unbeaten start to the Super League season with wins last week, while Warrington Wolves remain at the foot of the table on zero points, as they lost to Salford Red Devils, and Tony Smith's men will face a stiff test on Thursday night as they kick off the next round of matches at home to the aforementioned Wigan Warriors.

  • Castleford & Wigan are only two sides with 100% record
  • Warrington have failed to pick up a point this season
  • Catalans are unbeaten after three Super League matches

Wigan Can Cover The Handicap Against Wolves

Despite losing their opening three Super League matches, Warrington Wolves will head into Thursday's clash with Wigan as the 4/6 favourites with Betway, while Wigan are as big as 7/4 with Sky Bet bookmakers to notch a fourth win on the spin, but injury issues could mean Wigan face a tough task.

Prolific wingers Joe Burgess and Lewis Tierney will be on the sidelines for the Shaun Wane's Warriors after picking up knocks against Leigh Centurions last Friday, but even with that pair out you have to feel they could inflict more misery on a mis-firing Wolves outfit, and Sky Bet's Evens for Wigan +6 on the handicap market is a cracking bet in this titanic tussle.

Hull FC And Catalans Look Solid Bets

Hull FC trounced Huddersfield Giants 48-8 last time out and they will host a St Helens side that were beaten by Wakefield Trinity, so you have to feel the Black & Whites can build on that success and at 4/9 with Betway could be one of the more solid odds-on bets available this weekend.

One odds-on shot that makes no appeal is the Leeds Rhinos, who were hammered by a flourishing Castleford side last week, and they face a Catalans Dragons side that are unbeaten this season, and showed when winning away two matches ago that they could be a force this season, so the 6/5 with Sky Bet for a Dragons win is a cracking bet.

Castleford To Continue Fine Start To Campaign

Greg Eden and Greg Minikin have been in sensational try-scoring form for the Castleford Tigers this season, both already bagging six tries, and if they can continue their form then should have more glory on Saturday when they head to Widnes Vikings for what could be another Cas try-fest.

The 1/5 available with Betfred for a Cas win is not the most attractive price, but they are 5/6 with Sky Bet with a -14 handicap, so if they can hit the ground running from the first whistle then you have to feel they could ease to a 20-point success, and duly cement their place at the top of the table.
