Super League Preview: Round 22
Hull FC (12-9 ATS) v Hull KR (11-10 ATS): Hull FC -10 ($1.90)
The Hull Derby is always a fierce and much-anticipated affair but with FC needing to win to go back on top of the table and KR needing a victory to be any hope of reaching the Top 8, there is plenty of extra spice in this one. FC have covered 5 of their last 7 home games while KR have gone down by double digits in 4 of their last 5 away matches. Gareth Ellis returns for FC, adding to the confidence in this one. FC have won four straight against KR, three of those by double digits.
Leeds (7-14 ATS) v Wigan (7-14 ATS): Wigan -2 ($1.90)
Wigan have finally ascended to the top of the table and won’t be keen to let top spot slip with a loss against bottom-placed Leeds. The Rhinos have finally got some troops on hand and Sean O’Loughlin is suspended but the Warriors are the bet. They have won six straight road games, winning in Perpignan.
Widnes (10-11 ATS) v Salford (13-8 ATS): Widnes -6 ($1.90)
Salford have been the top cover team this year but they have been poor bets on the road covering just two of their last eight away games. Widnes are just 1-4 ATS as a home favourite this year but have won three straight at home against the Red Devils.
Catalans (13-8 ATS) v Wakefield (12-9 ATS): Wakefield +20 ($1.90)
Teams getting a start of 18 or more this year are 6-2 ATS with Wakefield 4-1 ATS in said situation. The Wildcats have covered 6 of their last 7 on the road this year. Catalans have covered just 2 of their last 5 at home when favoured by double digits.
Huddersfield (12-9 ATS) v St Helens (8-13 ATS): Huddersfield +2.5 ($1.90)
The Giants are 3-1 ATS at home this year when an underdog in betting and tackle a Saints team that is just 2-2 ATS as a road favourite in 2016. The Giants have won two of the last three against the Saints and have been beaten by more than three just once in the last six games.
Castleford (10-11 ATS) v Warrington (11-10 ATS): Castleford +5.5 ($1.90)
Cas have covered their last two at home and can make it three straight against a wildly inconsistent Warrington team who have not made the nut in their last two road games. Cas have covered two of three at home this year when getting a start of more than a try.
