Super League: Round 23

Friday, 5am
Hull KR (11-11 ATS) v Leeds (8-14 ATS):
Leeds -7.5 ($1.90)
It is hard to bet against Leeds now James Segeyaro has arrived to steady the ship. With Danny McGuire also returning, they should have too much firepower for a side that has lost three starters including Mitch Allgood. KR won 30-10 earlier in the year but Leeds won five straight prior by an average of 26.4 points.

Saturday, 5am
Salford (14-8 ATS) v Hull FC (13-9 ATS):
Salford +5.5 ($1.90)
Salford have covered nine straight at home this year and are a bet again despite Hull needing to win to claim the minor premiership. The teams have split the last four evenly and FC have failed to cover their last two on the road.

Wigan (7-15 ATS) v St Helens (9-13 ATS): Wigan -5.5 ($1.90)
Wigan look the bet here. Wigan get a heap of talent back and even though they lose Josh Charnley and Taulima Tautai, the return of John Bateman, Sean O’Loughlin and Sam Tomkins more than offsets that. The Warriors beat Saints earlier in the year 24-12 and on home turf with the chance of top spot should get the win.

Warrington (12-10 ATS) v Huddersfield (12-10 ATS): Huddersfield +13.5 ($1.90)
Road outsiders of 12.5 or more are 12-10 ATS this year and that gives a slight edge to the Giants. Huddersfield have not lost the last five meetings against Warrington.

Monday, 12am
Wakefield (13-9 ATS) v Castleford (10-12 ATS):
Wakefield (TBA)
Wakey just continue to impress, going to Perpignan last week to get the money as a massive underdog against Catalans.  They have failed to cover their last three at home but this Cas team is no good at all.

Widnes (10-12 ATS) v Catalans (13-9 ATS): Catalans (TBA)
Widnes were embarrassing when heavily favoured against Salford last week while the Dragons weren’t much better. The Vikings have covered just 1 of their last 6 at home though.

Best: Leeds -7.5 ($1.90)
Salford ($2.60)
