Super League: Round 30

Saturday, 5am
Hull FC (16-13 ATS) v Warrington (15-14 ATS):
Hull FC -5.5 ($1.90)
These two met in the Challenge Cup final and now meet again with the League Leaders Shield on the line. This will be the fourth meeting between the teams this year with Hull claiming victory on all three occasions. The loss of Ben Currie is a major blow to Warrington and should allow the nippy Hull spine plenty of room to operate. Warrington are just 3-6 against Top 4 opposition this year.

St Helens (15-14 ATS v Wakefield (15-14 ATS): St Helens -21.5 ($1.90)
Only 4 of 12 minues of 18 or more have saluted but the gap between the top teams and the rest has widened at the backend of the season with double digit favourites 9-2 ATS since Round 24. Saints have won eight straight against Wakey scoring 44 in their last three and being held to sub-30 just five times in their 25 matches since 2005.

Wigan (11-18 ATS) v Catalans (14-15 ATS): Wigan -17.5 ($1.90)
Both teams in this one have plenty to play for with Wigan able to secure a home final with a win and a Hull FC win while Catalans can go into fourth spot if they win and St Helens get shocked. It is hard to go past Wigan though even with the big start. Wigan have covered 3 of their last 4 while Catalans are in free-fall with not a single cover in their last five.

Monday, 12am
Castleford (16-13 ATS) v Widnes (12-17 ATS)
: Castleford (TBC – anywhere up to -15.5)
Cas have won 7 of 9 against Widnes and against a Vikings team that has averaged just 9.3 points a game over their last three matches, should prove too strong. The Tigers have posted 30-plus in 5 of their last 7.

Best: Wigan -17.5 ($1.90)
Hull FC/St Helens/Wigan -17.5 ($2.80)
