London 7/4 to pull off the great escape

Coach Danny Ward has done a tremendous job this year and a win at Wakefield in Friday night rugby would be enough to keep them in Super League and leave one of 3 clubs facing relegation on Friday 13th .

Super League sponsors Betfred make the Broncos 2/1 to win the game in 80 minutes , you can get around 7/4 for them to win including extra point , and i think they can do it . Trinity are on a terrible run , losing 7 of their last 8 , as a once battle for the top 5 has become a last day battle to save the drop .

Results elsewhere could still save Wakefield if they lose this , you can get 10/1 that they finish bottom , but I don’t see odds of around 1/2 being value for a side on such a poor run to win the game . Especially as the Broncos must be full of adrenaline after the amazing last gasp win at Rovers last week which has given them a real chance of staying up . London are also well used to this scenario given the incredible win in Toronto last October which won them  promotion and I think they can scrape a win in a very tense game here .

It’s 10/1 for Wakefield to be relegated and I’d be worried , I expect Huddersfield to comfortably land odds of around 2/5 to beat Catalans , the Dragons are on a run almost as bad as Wakefield . The French side have lost at home to both London and Rovers in the past 2 weeks .

The Giants are 16/1 to finish bottom , but I think they should be able to save themselves , if there’s one side you want to play now it’s the disinterested Catalans .  The side in immediate danger if London pull off a shock at Belle Vue is Hull KR , who are 9/4 to finish bottom and have a tough test at in form Salford . The Red Devils are on an incredible run of 7 straight wins as they have booked a place in the play offs , but Rovers pulled off a shock at Magic against Ian Watson’s side and I wouldn’t be surprised if they landed odds of around 9/4 to pull off another shock at the AJ Bell . It’s 2/5 for a home win , and despite the great run Salford are on I just think the Robins can keep their destiny in their own hands and not rely on a helping hand from Wakefield . Watson though has done a tremendous job with the Red Devils and will surely compete with Ward for Coach of the year honours .

So a London , Rovers and Huddersfield treble would see Wakefield relegated and that is more than possible .

Play offs start next week with Wigan hosting either Warrington or Salford , as always please gamble responsibly .

Wakefield lost 7 of 8 but in good form. Ran wire and saints close away from home, hard done to at home to Wigan and battered KR away, a team that London only just scraped a win against last week. Unfortunately it will be London for the drop, Wakefield have been in this position many times before and it won’t phase them. Ryan Atkins has big game experience, at both ends of the table, Toupu, Miller, Arundel, Lyne etc all played in these kind of games. I expect a comfortable Wakefield win. If London do pull it off then I fear for Rovers, Salford are the fittest side in super league and have the competitions best player in Hastings. Good luck to all teams involved!
