Super League top try scorer odds highlight Wigan Warriors strength

The Super League season is closing in, and for those seeking a punt, the betting market for top regular season try scorer has opened, but surprisingly, one of last season’s top try scorers ranks tenth in the betting.

In 2023 several players were vying for the try-scoring crown but it was Wigan Warriors’ Abbas Miski who topped the charts, clocking 28 tries in just 23 games.

The chasing pack behind the Lebanese international comprised six Englishmen with Josh Charnley and Tom Johnstone just one try back with 27 each.

Miski’s partner in crime Liam Marshall scored 24 himself as part of Wigan’s high-powered attack, whilst England international Tommy Makinson scored a try a game with 23 in 23.

Both Adam Swift and Matthew Ashton made the top ten with 19 and 18 tries a piece, but who could be topping the charts in 2024, or more specifically who do Super League sponsors Betfred believe will be the main man to secure the crown of top try scorer?

Understandably after his incredible season, which secured him a new four-year deal, Abbas Miski is the favourite priced at 6/1, followed closely by teammate Liam Marshall, and last season’s high flyers Tom Johnstone and Tommy Makinson at 7/1.

A group of five wingers are then priced at 10/1 comprising Matty Ashton, Ash Handley, Tom Davies and St Helens duo Jon Bennison and Tee Ritson.

Bevan French is the shortest-priced none winger, the reigning Man of Steel priced at 12/1 alongside Josh Charnley who is surprisingly priced at 12/1 despite his incredible 27-try season.

Hull KR veteran Ryan Hall is also priced at 12/1 alongside Warrington’s full-back Matt Dufty. KR’s new winger Joe Burgess comes in at 16/1, just like Leeds Rhinos’ recruit Lachie Miller.

Adam Swift is 18/1 after moving from Hull FC to Huddersfield Giants, whilst his replacement Liam Tindall is the same price.

A full list of odds, as priced by Betfred, can be seen below.
