St Helens to cover handicap in Super League clash with Widnes

Leeds Rhinos moved into second place in the Super League table, as Brian McDermott's men capitalised on defeats from the previous top-two Castleford Tigers and Salford Red Devils, but the Rhinos will be in Challenge Cup action on Friday night, so the Tigers have the chance to pull two points clear again as they face a stiff task away at Hull FC in the Super League.

  • Castleford Tigers are top of Super League
  • Widnes Vikings are bottom of the table
  • Warrington have won their last two matches after shocking start

With only four matches taking place in Super League this week then it could shake up the table somewhat and Wigan Warriors will be aiming to build on a narrow Wakefield win last week, while Warrington Wolves will be hoping to continue their recent good form after a shocking start to the campaign.

St Helens To Cover Handicap With Widnes

St Helens produced a fine display to beat table-toppers Castleford last week, and there was no hangover following Keiron Cunningham's departure, and they can build on that success with an easy win over bottom club Widnes Vikings in Thursday's live Sky Sports match, for which they are red-hot odds-on favourites.

Available at 1/5 with Betfair Sportsbook, Saints are not a betting prospect in the win market, but in the handicap market they could be terrific value at 10/11 with Paddy Power at -14, as Widnes, who are 4/1 for the win with BetVictor, have been in poor form all season, and that aforementioned win against Cas could be the catalyst for a golden spell for Saints.

Warrington To Ease Past Wakefield

A draw and two wins in their last three matches has seen Warrington find their feet in this year's Super League, and Tony Smith's can notch a third win in a row on Friday night at the Halliwell Jones Stadium by beating Wakefield Trinity, who were just edged out by Wigan Warriors in their last match.

The Wire are a best-priced 4/11 with BetVictor Bookmakers to land the win, while Wakefield are 11/4 with bet365, but Smith's men seem to have broken the rot from earlier in the season, and like St Helens above could cover the -8 handicap, which is 10/11 with Paddy Power bookmakers.

Cas And Wigan To Record Wins

Free-scoring Castleford Tigers may have lost to St Helens last week, but Daryl Powell's men can get back on the winning track on Sunday with victory over Hull FC, who were 24-10 winners over Leigh Centurions last time out, but maybe unable to hold back a roaring attacking line-up from the Tigers.

Elsewhere, Wigan Warriors can conclude the weekend with a win over Catalans Dragons, who romped to a 38-6 win over Salford last week, but Shaun Wane's Warriors will have too much class for a Dragons side that can often struggle away from home soil.
