After an unlucky week last week we got a reminder how cruel the markets could be, watching our bets shorten/nicely position themselves only to go the other way late in the game. I also learnt one thing about the Rhinos last week and that’s you just cant bet on their games until team news is firmed up. Anyway the bet..
Catalans v Salford
Bet: Catalans 1-12
Odds: 3.25 188Bet 3.1 Betfair 3 PaddyPower
Rationale: Neither of these teams is perfect yet. Welham looks genuinely bad defensively for Salford and the Gigot/Langi defensive edge looks poor in defense. With this being playd in the South of France and the home advatage this creates I’ve got to side with Catallans. They have superioir game managemet to Salford and as such are an easy back for me in this spot.
