Hull and Warrington Fight in Rugby League Challenge Cup FinalPublished August 27, 2016 by Florin P
The best teams chase the Rugby League Challenge Cup trophy on Saturday (3:00 p.m UK Time).
The final act of the Rugby League Challenge Cup is scheduled to take place on August 27 at the Wembley Stadium. Hull and Warrington will lock horns in this match that will determine the winner of the Rugby League's oldest and most prestigious competition. The knockout tournament brings together teams from university, community, armed forces and professional clubs.
Warrington Emerges as Narrow Favorite
In front of a sold-out crowd, the Warrington Wolves will try to defeat Hull FC for the first time in 2016. Both attempts this year failed, but even so bookmakers credit them with the first chance to triumph. 888 Sport offers by far the best odds at 13/10 with Winner Sports only offering 4/5 for this outcome. The odds of the match ending undecided are slim, but savvy punters can’t rule out this possibility either.
Two of the last four matches resulted in lopsided victories, but the other two were narrow margin wins. The two teams are evenly matched and the pressure on playing on Wembley Stadium will also have a significant impact on their performance. With no major injuries, they will be able to field the best starting formation and give opponents a run for their money.
Even Value on Hull FC
Warrington Wolves had a couple of tough opponents to beat recently and barely emerged victorious. By comparison, Hull won its games easily and even managed to shut down its opponents twice in a row. They have scored a combined 82 points while keeping clean sheets against the Catalans Dragons and Widnes Viking.
That’s why the even odds offered by bet365, William Hill and 10bet on them to triumph are so tempting. All three bookmakers are regarding Warrington Wolves as narrow favorites and price them accordingly at 4/5. Value is definitely with Hull, especially after them winning both fixtures this year and having a slightly better head to head record.
