Chris has had an absolutely cracking start with his selections so far, and having a 20/1 winner yesterday has really giving him some confidence for his picks. Today we have received a late one from him, so here it is!
Catalans v Huddersfield
Bet: Under 44.5 Points
Odds: 1.93 Pinnacle, 1.92 SBOBet, 1.91 Bet365, 1.9 Marathon
Rationale: So my thinking here is pretty straight forward in that both teams are going to have problems clicking in attack. Huddersfield will be reliant on Grix, Frawley and Farrell to generate their line breaks and it’s hardly a combination which inspires belief. Meanwhile at Second Row the Giants look solid enough in defence without having guys that particularly threaten the line. Catalans have issues too and are adjusting to the brave new world of having Matty Smith and Tomkins coming into the side. McNamara is a good defensive coach and Smith’s defence is decent enough. I have concerns over how well Gigot and Langi defend in the line but will be overlooking this as I think both attacks will be a little disjointed at this stage i the season and with two defensively sound Head Coaches unders looks the play here.
