The 2022 Super League season is underway and Rugby League fans all over the country are delighted to see the ‘greatest game’ return to our screens. With this in mind we are going to take a look today at some of the best betting picks which you can make, that will add an extra layer of entertainment to your season. For online bookies like signals the introduction of wider betting markets for the Super League, and that means more potential for fun. Here then are our picks which you may wish to take a look at.
St Helens are currently the overwhelming favorites to once again win the Grand Final but this may be a little ill-advised in terms of betting. The favorites are a safe bet for the bookies but we have to look at the sea change in personnel which St Helens are going through when we take their title bid into consideration. Currently Saints are sitting at 15/8, which is a little long for a favorite, showing just how open this league is. Our other pick would be the Warrington Wolves who have rebuilt during the break and who look very tasty at 4/1.
The real fun in this league can often be found down at the bottom, which is why we always like to have a flutter on who will be the worst placed team come the end of the season. Be careful here as not all bookies will offer odds on this selection. Salford and Wakefield Trinity would be our picks here for some decent odds, currently sat at around the 4/1 and 7/2 mark respectively.
Toulouse are the obvious choice for the drop but don’t be so sure they won’t be able to pick up points, especially at home, with teams notoriously struggling away at long-time Super League side Catalans Dragons. It will be interesting to see how the new boys go as Super League makes history with two French teams competing in the competition for the first time.
Top Try Scorer
We like to have a little bet on multiple options for top try scorer for the regular season, and given how many picks there are here, it really is something of a lottery. Our picks for this season would be Matty Ashton, who you can find as long as 14/1, as well as Ash Handley and Tom Johnstone, both of whom ring in at 16/1 odds.
Of course the wingers lead this market, but don’t forget about the full-backs with Catalans no.1 and reigning Man of Steel Sam Tomkins likely to get over the whitewash a number of times for the French outfit throughout the 2022 season.
Man of Steel
And finally why not look to have a flutter on the Man of Steel for the 2022 season? A great bit of fun. We have picked out Cade Cust at 14/1 here, as well as some slightly longer odds of 20/1 on both Jack Welsby and Jake Connor, two picks who will certainly be in with a shout for this award.
