Two tips today from expert rugby league tipster Chris Thomas. Both games kick off at 7.45pm this evening so make sure you give yourself time to get on. Good luck to Chris and all followers..
Huddersfield v Warrington
Bet: Warrington 11-20 and Warrington 1-10
Odds: For 11-20 3.75 Bet365 Befred, For 1-10 3.5 Betfred 3.4 Ladbrokes Coral
Stake: 1% on 11-20 1% on 1-10 2% total
Rationale: Huddersfield welcome back a couple of bodies this week including star winger Jermaine McGilvray. In spite of their 0-2 record the Giants possess one of the best defensive records in the league in terms of missed tackles so from a starting point a Warrington blow out is hard to see.
Warrington still have for me comfortably the best pack in the league and the 10 point favourite line is entirely justified here. This is one of those good cases for me where the handicap line looks more or less correct but the WM market is still exploitable with outcomes like Warrington 21-30 overpriced at 4/1.
Warrington haven’t beaten Huddersfield by more than 20 points since 2013. With Warrington priced 1.34 to win we’d need Slightly over 75% of Warrington’s wins to come by this scoreline. I think this is around a 5 in 6 chance that given Warrington win they win by this score and at around 1.8 its a nice price to get involved.
St Helens v Leeds
Bet: St Helens 1-12
Odds: 3.2 188Bet Betfred
Rationale: It clicked for Leeds last week unexpectedly away from Salford and looking back at their tries they look to be more of a Furner team but still I question their game management and a ton of their tries didn’t come from set moves in a way I’d like to see. Saints are the favourites here and deservedly so but above 2/1 on this is very nicely priced for us.
