Airlie Birds huge value to outshine Wigan down under

Hull beat Warriors three times in four matches last season

Hull ace Marc Sneyd will hope to stage another masterclass
1 of 1

Wakefield v Salford
Sky Arena, 7.35pm Friday

Wigan v Hull
Sky Arena, 8.45am Saturday

Super League history will be made early on Saturday morning when Wigan and Hull clash in Australia in the first match in the Betfred-sponsored competition ever to be played outside Europe.

Both sides will play friendlies against top NRL sides next week­end as part of the ground­breaking trip which is expected to prove financially lucrative for the two Super League heavy­weights.

And punters can cash in too by backing Hull to repeat last season's 18-14 Challenge Cup final triumph over the Warriors.

Marc Sneyd's masterclass steered the Black & Whites to what was one of three successes for Lee Radford's team in four meetings with Shaun Wane's men in 2017.

Hull finished three places and four points above their oppo­nents and bookmakers have come up with some extraordinary prices to match the extraordinary occasion.

Quite how the Airlie Birds can be rated such big underdogs for this assignment and handed a six-point handicap start is something of a mystery.

They have lost captain Gareth Ellis and top outside-back Mahe Fonua since last season, but Michael McIlorum and Anthony Gelling have departed from Wigan.

Both teams had comfortable opening-round successes. The Warriors routed Salford 40-12 while Hull coasted past Hudders­field 38-12.

Both sides are near full strength with Wigan welcoming back skipper Sean O'Loughlin and winger Joe Burgess but still missing John Bateman. Hull recall Liam Watts but are still without Carlos Tuimavave.

In what has all the makings of a closely fought contest, Hull simply have be backed at the available prices. Wigan could win comfortably, of course, but the odds still look wrong.

The layers believe Wakefield should have few problems seeing off Salford with Chris Chester's team asked to concede a ten-point start.

Wakey kicked off the season with a 28-6 success at newly-promoted Hull KR while the Red Devils capsized at home to Wigan.

Ian Watson's side have lost 11 of their last 12 fixtures. All 11 defeats were by more than ten points and include a 43-18 hiding at the hands of Trinity at the AJ Bell Stadium in September.

Wakey to cover the handicap at evens looks a decent bet.
