Wakefield +8 v Wigan
We expect Wigan to win, but Wakefield have shown they are more than capable of scoring points – 24 points away to Castleford is testament to that – that’s why we think they’ll keep this one close
Pick: Wakefield +8
:eeds -20 v Widnes
Widnes absolutely capitulated away to Wakefield, and struggled to get many points on the board at home to Warrington, whilst Leeds hammered Hull away. I’d take Leeds -30 in this!
Pick: Leeds -20
Leigh +6 v Hull FC
Leigh have been poor for weeks now, but improved to only lose narrowly v Salford, whilst Hull are shipping points at an alarming rate. We’ve taken Leigh to turn it around here.
Pick: Leigh +6
St Helens v Castleford -6
Despite the improvement, we come up against a free scoring Castleford side, and it’s hard to see us keeping this one close, especially as many players are backing up after playing with a man down v Wigan.
Pick: Castleford -6
Warrington v Huddersfield +16
Both dire teams, but we just can’t see Warrington running away with this – Huddersfield will keep this close and will be looking to steal the 2 points.
Pick: Huddersfield +16
Catalans v Salford +6
Do the bookies know something we don’t? I’d expect Salford in current form to go to France and win, to give them a 6 point start is mad! Only reason I can think of is Catalans getting an extra couple of days rest.
Pick: Salford +6
Pick: Catalans (Actual Result: Huddersfield 22-29 Catalans) – WIN
Pick: Warrington -12 (Actual Result: Widnes 10-19 Warrington) – LOSS
Pick: Wigan -8 (Actual Result: Wigan 29-18 St Helens) – WIN
Pick: Castleford -22 (Actual Result: Castleford 42-24 Wakefield) – LOSS
