Sunday betting preview
Huddersfield Giants are walking high this season and they gained stature with another victory over Hull KR in the Betfred Super League at Craven Park on Sunday.
The Giants reached the Betfred Challenge Cup final where they were only beaten by a last-gasp try from Liam Marshall for the Wigan Warriors, and Ian Watson’s men sit well down to fourth in the league table after ten wins in their first 15 matches.
It’s quite a turnaround for a team that finished ninth in 2021.
And there should be more to come from Watson’s well-oiled machine who will be waiting for two points from this game they’ve been dominating lately.
Huddersfield have won eight of the last nine meetings for the Robins, the most recent being a 25-4 victory in the Challenge Cup semi-final in May.
Rovers have been plagued with inconsistencies this season but remain in the playoff hunt for seventh place.
You face KR at your own risk, especially when they are at home, but the Giants should be too strong again and look decent value to go home in a close encounter.
Salford are also an inconsistent group, but they look to have a touch of value against Wakefield Trinity on Sunday.
There’s not much to get excited about when it comes to the Red Devils, but Wakey’s dismal away form suggests the home side can secure a well-deserved victory.
Trinity has won just one of seven road trips this season and his loss column total could go up.
The Catalans are 5-6 up to get the better of Castleford in the jungle but the game looks hard to follow.
Queensland are looking a decent bet in Game 2 of the State of Origin series in Perth.
The Maroons stunned their former rivals to win the opener in Sydney and they can stage a victory parade as they return to Brisbane for the third fixture.
The Blues have sounded the changes in a bid to keep the streak alive, but coach Brad Fittler may have gone too far with his seven new faces after their 16-10 loss three weeks ago.
Such an upset could backfire and Queensland’s more settled side could finish the job at Optus Stadium.
New South Wales won the series at a gallop in 2021, but Queensland look determined to bounce back and 6-5 seems a decent bet given their heroism in Game 1.
