RUGBY LEAGUE fanatic Andrew Day (@AndyDay81) earmarks his standout Super League selection from Friday night’s action.
Salford Red Devils v Wakefield Trinity | Thursday 20th April 2018, 20:00
Salford Red Devils returned to winning ways last weekend with a solid 30–12 victory at Huddersfield Giants. That win moved them up to eighth in the table, two points behind Friday night’s opponents Wakefield.
Confidence at visitors Trinity will be sky high after last weekend’s 24–20 conquering of league leaders St Helens and they will be hoping for another two points here to ensure the season is about them looking up the league rather than down.
The betting angle
These sides met four times last season and have also met earlier this year. Wakefield won on four of those occasions at an aggregate score of 119–106, including a 43–18 triumph on their last trip to the AJ Bell Stadium.
Wakefield also boast a sizable average points scored per-game difference to the Red Devils – 20.4 points per-game compared to 16.1 per-game.
For that reason, I fancy Wakefield to quite simply outscore the Red Devils and cover the -3.5 point spread at 10/11 with 188BET.
