Salford will look to bounce back from their defeat to Wakefield with a victory over Hull – who themselves managed to return to winning ways against Wigan.
The Red Devils sit in second place, four points off the top, while Hull are in fifth and three points adrift of their opponents.
Salford have yet to lose back-to-back games this season, and their consistently good form has been the catalyst to their current league standings. Hull have been an odd side this season. In spells they have looked the real deal but they can at other times look ordinary.
Therefore, this should be a hard game to call. Salford took advantage of Hull’s vulnerabilities to good effect earlier on in the season, but the situation is almost reversed this time, as Hull will hope to generate some momentum from their recent victory – even if they do have a couple of players on the sidelines.
Both sides being priced at 10/11 would be fair enough for the match – which is the case with William Hill, Paddy Power and BoyleSports. It’s the best price you can get on Salford to win, but Hull are as long as 11/8 – which is available with SkyBet. We like the look of that.
Hull’s average margin of victory this season has been between 11 and 15 points – Salford’s average margin defeat falls into that particular range too. Hull are 10/1 with BetVictor to win by 11-15.
Predictably, slender Salford victories are pretty short – with a 6-10 points home win available at 11/2.
