This is a game that many would wish was on the television as Wakefield v Leeds is set up for an intriguing encounter.
It’s fourth versus third in the Super League – with Trinity arguably the biggest surprise package of the season.
They have been in excellent form – winning each of their last six league matches – and they face a side that has bounced back from the troubles of last season in Leeds, though they are in an inconsistent run of form – winning three and losing three of their last six.
Both sides have their share of absences, perhaps Wakefield more than Leeds, but the home side have made it very tricky for any visiting side to play on their patch this season. No-one has left with a comprehensive victory and their home form has been the foundation for a strong showing in the competition so far.
Earlier on in the week, Wakefield were 2/1 to record a win, that has since come in to a best price 13/8 with Betfred. Leeds are still favourites and can be found at 4/6. We like the look of the Wakefield bet, and would probably back it but for those who aren’t as bold you can take Wakefield +4 at 10/11.
As for the winning margin bets, this is widely expected to be a pretty tight encounter – and Wakefield to win by 1-5 points is 7/1 with BetVictor, and could be worth backing.
