After a tough 4 game start to the season , which has seen them travel to the 3 ante post favourites to win the Grand Final , Leeds finally get to play at home against a Wakefield side that have had an inconsistent start to the season .
A poor loss in London was followed by an unlucky loss to St Helens for Trinity , but they finally broke their duck with a comfortable win over Catalans 8 days ago . Danny Brough was back to his near best for Wakefield last week and Leeds won’t be looking forward to facing him tonight . The Rhinos though were unlucky at St Helens last week and comfortably beat in form Salford the week before and I think they can win this one too . 4/9 is a little short for a side with just one win but you can’t ignore the difficult start they’ve had and back on home soil I think they may just have too much for Wakefield , who lost to London on their last road trip . I’m sure Trinity fans will be tempted by the 15/8 for their heroes but it’s Leeds for me in what could be a high scoring entertaining game if it stays dry .
Leeds have to concede 6 on the handicap and I think they can do this and win by around 11-15 points . Super League sponsors have Leeds 10/11 on the half time full time and that’s probably where the value lies .
It’s hard to ignore the leagues best finisher Tom Johnstone at 11/1 to score the 1st try , Hurrell would be an alternative at 12/1 .
A wide open man of the match market sees Myler and Brough head the betting at 8/1 , whilst you can’t see past Brough in Trinity colours I’d look to Watkins at 16/1 for Leeds . The England international is starting to get back to form after a bad injury .
Another game on Saturday as Warrington go to the South of France , as always please gamble responsibly .
