Hull FC v Warrington Wolves Betting Tips
As we said, this match is a genuine 50:50 game with some bookies making Warrington Wolves the favourite for this game whilst a handful are backing Hull to overcome the Cheshire side. Even the handicap market has only been set at +/- 2 and as such it should be an entertaining back and forth game between the two best sides this season.
Hull FC will be hoping to do a lot better than their neighbours and rivals Hull KR who were soundly beaten last season in the cup final. In that game, the Robins went down 50-0 to a Tom Briscoe inspired Leeds Rhinos in what is the widest winning margin in the competition’s final.
This match will almost certainly be a closer event and with both coaches confirming on Monday’s press conference that they have selected their sides for the match, they will have had plenty of time to prepare. Lee Radford has confirmed that his side are at full strength following Liam Watts’ return from injury whilst Warrington await on a decision over George King’s suspension that he picked up for a dangerous tackle made in their match against Cas last weekend.
Going into the match, it is Warrington who have the greater cup pedigree of recent times having won four times in the last eight years in the capital with Hull finishing runners up on eight occasions. With this match looking so tight to call, we have opted for some none result bets for Saturday afternoon. Firstly, we are backing Chris Sandow to pick up the man of the match award having been in excellent form this season. The former Parramatta Eels halfback has formed a formidable partnership with compatriot Kurt Gidley and the dynamic duo have been a key part of Warrington’s rise up the table.
Sandow is also pretty handy with the boot and in an important game which looks a very close call, a drop goal may not be a bad shout. For the side from the Humber it will be the excellent Marc Sneyd who will pose the kicking threat from open play.
