Out of form Huddersfield 2/1 for Salford trip

An intriguing clash on Thursday night rugby , as a Huddersfield side in free fall travel to Salford .

The Red Devils , who dropped out of the top 5 with defeat at Wigan last week , are 4/9 with Super League Sponsors Betfred to win the game in 80 minutes as their opponents have now lost their last 4 games since that impressive win at magic against Hull .

The Giants have been decimated with injury but are starting to get players back and need points fast as they are only off the foot of the table on points difference .

I think Huddersfield may fancy this one though , Salford sit 7th in the table but only 4 points off the bottom and have been very inconsistent . Some good performances , a win against Castleford and at Warrington have been set alongside poor defeats like against Hull KR at magic and they were well beaten at the DW 6 days ago .

I think the value possibly lies with Huddersfield at 2/1 , more so them getting a 6 point start on the handicap , and I think they can just edge this one .Yes their recent form is poor , but they hit rock bottom at Wakefield last week and can only improve and could just catch Salford on an off day like Rovers did at Anfield .

Unsurprisingly Hastings is very short at 7/2 for man of the match , new boy Lolohea rates better value at 8/1 . As for the Giants much improved Lee Gaskell would be my pick at 9/1 .

Castleford play Leeds on Friday , as always please gamble responsibly .
