Super League Grand Final
This weekend is the big one for Rugby League fans out there. The Super League Final comes to Old Trafford and this year’s grand final is between the giants of Leeds Rhinos and the surprise package of the year Castleford Tigers.
On paper and history, it would seem Rhinos would walk this but in reality this year the Tigers have actually won all 4 matches in the season between the two sides. Their odds of 1/2 show their favourite status.
Where Leeds Rhinos at 7/4 have an advantage is experience. This is the first time Castleford have never been in the Grand Final and nerves both on the pitch and among fans will spread like cancer on the big day. Leeds, on the other hand, have been here countless times and know how to grind it out in the big games.
Danny Maguire of Leeds Rhinos will also be waving goodbye and being one of Rhinos best players he will now have extra motivation to do well. His 7/1 nod for best man could be the best value for money on the day with Betfred.
These two teams are the highest scoring from the entire season so there is likely to be plenty of fireworks and points. Definitely worth a watch on the 7th.
England VS Slovenia
England head back to the qualifying table this week with a match at Wembley vs underdogs Slovenia. It was 12 months ago that the two side last faced each other in Ljubljana when it finished in a disappointing goalless draw. That could be very different this time round.
Not only will Wembley be home soil for England but all eyes will be on Harry Kane. This is even his home ground this season too. The England forward has been in incredible form seemingly scoring from wherever he decides at the moment. Hattricks and braces are flying in and Gareth Southgate will be hoping he is bringing that with him. His two goals on the weekend against Huddersfield were pure confidence and skill.
The game will be played on Sky Sports main event if you want to see how your bets are going from 6:30pm. We think this will be a comfortable England win for once and Harry Kane at 5/2 to be first goal scorer is a sensible bet for someone who has scored 13 goals last month.
Japanese Grand Prix
Formula 1 is heating up and while Lewis Hamilton remains in pole position for the World Title even he has had to admit that the speed of Ferrari is a worry. On the 8th Hamilton and Vettel go head to head again, this time on the Japanese circuit of Suzuka.
The Japanese track is considered one of the toughest on the circuit with twisting turns and strategically tricky straights. Surprisingly it is one of Hamilton’s less successful places and this could mean Sebastien Vettel can take advantage.
At 7/2 the German is also well priced by William Hill. For those among you with big balls then Max Verstappen had a very good race here in 2016, missing out after Nico Rosberg destroyed the circuit. The best price of 7/1 might interest those who like to be a risk taker in Formula 1.
