Rugby Super League Round 17 Betting Previews and Predictions
Castleford Tigers (13-5-8) Vs Huddersfield Giants (14-4-10)
Castleford Tigers enter this match with a changed roster (due to COVID-19 issues), which is nowhere near as good as their starting lineup. What’s more, they have lost all of their last four matches across all competitions, which included a forfeit loss against St. Helen when the Tigers were unable to find a roster.
Castleford Tigers have won only five of their Super League matches this term, which obviously isn’t great. Even though Huddersfield Giants won one less, they have finally broken their six-game dry streak last time out and seem ready to make it two in a row on Monday.
Huddersfield enter this match following a solid 40-26 victory against Hull FC and will now face a makeshift side. We have faith in Huddersfield Giants, who should get it done with at least six points to spare.
Prediction: Huddersfield Giants -6.5
Hull FC (13-7-5) Vs St Helens (12-10-2)
Hull FC suffered their second consecutive loss against Leeds (12-22) on Thursday, as they hold onto the top-six, but only barely. St. Helen, on the other side, return back to Super League following COVID restrictions looking for their fourth consecutive win, having already bested Castleford (24-0), Wigan (24-6), and Wakefield (30-14).
Given their lack of form, it’s no surprise seeing Hull FC priced as underdogs for this match, especially since they’re facing the reigning champions. Even though ST Helens had to take a break, it should do them good to rest and get ready to overcome a side that seems short of confidence.
Prediction: St. Helens -7.5
Hull KR (11-6-5) Vs Catalan Dragons (15-14-1)
Hull KR and Catalan Dragons last met on July 24, when Hull KR pished the Dragons to their limits but were unable to build on a strong lead and eventually lost 30-32. Hull should feel content with their showing on the day, although dropping a 14-point lead isn’t exactly something you could praise them for.
Catalan Dragons defeated Wakefield (40-20) last time out and improved their win streak to 11 in a row. Although an impressive win, the French side made the game much tougher than it needed.
Catalan Dragons seemed very sloppy and blew numerous chances, which is definitely something they need to work on ahead of this bout.
It’s hard to pick a winner for this match. Hull KR have the talent to upset Catalan Dragons, whereas the latter should claim a comfortable win if they can improve upon their showings against Wakefield. A bet on the underdogs seems like a solid option, but we like over 48.5 points since it’s very clear that both sides have no issues posting points of late.
Prediction: Over 48.5
