HUDDERSFIELD switch their attention back to the Super League tonight having had their hopes of reaching the Challenge Cup semi-finals dashed by Castleford on Sunday, and they face another team that suffered Cup disappointment, namely Hull KR.
The stuttering Giants really need to get back to winning ways and they’re odds-on to do just that, Ladbrokes pricing them at just 1/5 to come out on top in the Galpharm Stadium clash, Stan James rating the Robins at 7/2 and Betdaq posting 26.0 (25/1) against an unlikely stalemate.
Given the skinny price chalked alongside Nathan Brown’s men, Giants fans are more likely to speculate in the handicaps, where bet365 make Huddersfield 10/11 to cover the visitors’ dozen-point start and Partybets quote 5/6 for the hosts to overhaul a 12.5-point advantage in the market that doesn’t allow a handicap draw.
Bookies expect Brown’s charges to dominate proceedings, so they’re just 1/4 at Skybet to be in front after both 40 and 80 minutes and it’s 8/13 via Paddy Power for the first score of the game to be a Huddersfield try.
Elsewhere, Betfred quote odds of 11/2 for the Giants to prevail by 16-20 points, Boylesports offer 13/8 for the whole match to produce 46-58 points and a drop goal is considered pretty unlikely by Victor Chandler, who post 4/1 against either side grabbing a one-pointer.
Looking further ahead, meanwhile and following recent setbacks, Brown’s troops have drifted to 22/1 in Sportingbet’s Grand Final betting.
