Challenge Cup Preview: Semi Finals
The Wolf previews the quarter final of the 2016 Challenge Cup.
Wigan v Hull FC: Hull FC +2.5 ($1.90)
A battle between the league leaders Hull and title favourites Wigan. Hull defeated Wigan the last time the two teams met and the Warriors were lucky to sneak away with a 1-point win in the first meeting of 2016. Wigan have more suspension concerns while Hull FC have Frank Pritchard back and firing. Looking for revenge for the Challenge Cup final three years back, FC will be ready for Wigan.
Warrington v Wakefield: Wakefield +12.5 ($1.90)
Wakefield have been sensational getting a big start this season and having covered 7 of their last 8 on the road they are the bet in this second Challenge Cup semi. Warrington only just scraped through their quarter against Widnes while Wakey smashed Huddersfield. The Wolves have hardly been flying of late and this is Wakefield’s biggest game in close to 40 years. This will be close.
