Salford will be looking to get their league campaign back on track after three consecutive defeats – the latest of which was a huge kick in the teeth as they were on the end of a stunning late comeback against St. Helens.
They will face a Huddersfield side who are unbeaten in their last four games and have shown a great deal of improvement in the past couple of months.
Salford look to be close to full strength if their 19-man squad is anything to go by while Huddersfield have made two changes with Sam Rapira and new signing Jordan Rankin coming in for Sam Wood and Martyn Ridyard.
The bookies have made the home side favourites, perhaps unsurprisingly – best priced 8/15. You can get 15/8 on the Giants – and they have been given a six-point start on the handicap. You can get the Giants at Evens with Stan James on that bet – with Salford the same price to cover it with Betway.
It’s another tricky one but we’d be tempted to back the Giants on the handicap given the recent form of both sides.
We wouldn’t be surprised if it was a tight victory either way. A 1-5 point win for Salford is 13/2, for Huddersfield it’s 15/2.
A tough one to call.
