St Helens Lead the Updated Super League 2019 Title Odds
Not surprisingly, St Helens are the championship front runners after winning their second straight Super League league leaders’ shield last week. The Saints put the shield in the bag with five games left to play after taking an insurmountable 12 points lead over Wolves following Warrington’s defeat at Catalans last Saturday night.
According to the latest bet365 Super League odds, St Helens are now an odds-on 8/11 to win this year’s Super League grand final. Second in line is Warrington, 5/2. Fans could be forgiven for thinking a St Helens championship victory is a foregone conclusion. If you’re one of those people, think again and cast your mind back to last year when the Saints finished top of the final regular season standing by six points – only to lose to Warrington in the semi-finals. It was a wasted year for the Saints, and they will be desperate to make amends in this year’s finals series.
Warrington Leads the Super League Title Challengers
Speaking of Warrington, the Wolves are once again breathing down St Helens’ necks. They are the second favourite for the 2019 Super League championship and are paying 5/2 at bet365. Warrington will be nervously looking to make amends for last year after they lost last year’s grand final 12-4 to Wigan.
Wigan are the next of two other top teams with serious championship credentials. Wigan, who were fourth at time of writing and on a collision course for an elimination final, is paying 6/1, ahead of third-placed Hull, 12/1. Next in line are the only other realistic contenders: Castleford, 25/1, and Catalan Dragons, 25/1.
Can Any of the Minnows Surprise?
The amazing thing about this Super League season is that everybody is still technically in with a chance so late in the season.
Salford, who are seventh and have a slight chance of making the finals, is paying 80/1 to enjoy a miracle run and win the Super League grand final.
The other five teams would need to win every remaining game to have a chance of even making the finals. But given they’re all in contention, let’s look at their odds: Leeds Rhinos are paying 250/1, Wakefield and Huddersfield are paying 1,000/1 each, Hull Kingston Rovers are paying 2,000/1, and London Broncos are paying 2,500/1.
Hull and London could be eliminated by the next matchday, but stranger things have happened. Remember, Leicester City won the English Premier League from 5,000/1 at the beginning of the season. Could London or Hull win it? Probably not. But if they do, you can be sure someone will collect a big payday.
