Wire odds on for win at the Jungle

The big games keep coming thick and fast in Super League and Friday night rugby comes from the Jungle where injury hit Castleford entertain Warrington .

The Tigers lost a poor game , albeit in awful conditions , at Wigan last week and they have to pick themselves up to take on a Wire side who sit 6 points ahead of them in the table . They did though suffer 2 defeats in a row last month but despite that have racked up plenty of points in their last 2 and it’s hard to see them slipping up here . Cas are without a string of key players , including Shenton and Moors and have now lost 5 of their last 8 games .
They looked 2nd best in the 2nd half at Wigan as a hard Easter really took it’s toll .They also nearly lost a big lead against Wakefield and had to travel to France on Easter Monday .

The bookies make the visitors favourites at 1/2 and that is justified , you’d want more than the general 15:8 for Castleford given their absentee list . Complacency could be a problem for Wire but that is unlikely after the rocket they received after losing to Salford on Good Friday .

Wire have to concede a 6 point start on the handicap which I think they can do and win this by around 11-15 points . Plenty of games this season  including Cas at Wigan , have seen the side trailing at half time go on and win the game and Castleford half time Warrington full time looks a value fun bet at 6/1 .

Plenty of man of the match options in Primrose and Blue but it has to be favourite Austin at 6/1 ahead of former Tiger Clark at a point bigger .Austin for me has been the best player so far in Super League this season .

Liam Watts has been putting in the minutes for Cas and he’d by my choice for the Fords at 16/1.
