Free-flowing Cas to make amends for Salford defeat

Tigers can profit from Dragons' road woes

Castleford v Catalans
3.30pm Sunday

After four comprehensive opening victories, Castleford were the talk of the Betfred Super League.

Daryl Powell's enterprising side had fans and pundits salivating at the prospect of what they could produce as the season unfolded but the Tigers lost some of their lustre last week when they were defeated 13-12 at Salford.

Bookmakers aren't reading too much into that one-point defeat and make Cas 1-7 to get back to winning ways against Catalans at the Jungle.

It's hard to quibble with those quotes if the Tigers return to the same mood they were in when thrashing Leeds 66-10 in round four, but they will have to do so without flying winger Greg Minikin who injured his shoulder at Salford.

Since joining Super League in 2006, Catalans have shown they can mix it with the best on home soil but can subside on the road.

The Dragons are given a 16-point buffer for their trip to Yorkshire and while they won at leaders Hull five weeks ago, they have been beaten by 24 points at Wigan and 36 at Leeds.

An on-song Castleford would aspire to a similar margin of victory as the Warriors and Rhinos so at a generous-looking 10-3, it could be worth backing the Tigers to triumph by between 21 and 30 points.

Recommendation
Castleford to win by 21 to 30 points
1pt 10-3 bet365
