St Helens favourites to win record-breaking fourth straight Super League title

Steven Hughes

St Helens have been named by title sponsors Betfred as favourites to win what would be their fourth straight Super League title.

They are listed as 2/1 favourites to win the Grand Final, which takes place at the earlier time of 24th September. If they were to win, it would be the first time in the Super League era where a team has won four straight titles.

The last team to win four in a row was when Wigan won seven straight titles between 1990 and 1996.

Elsewhere, the second favourites are Warrington. Daryl Powell’s men are listed at 7/2 to end their Old Trafford hoodoo. They last played there in 2018. Three of their Grand Final defeats have been at the hands of Wigan.

Meanwhile, Wigan are listed as fourth favourite in Matt Peet’s first season in charge. They are at 13/2 to lift their first title of the post-Shaun Wane era.

Leeds round off the teams available at short odds. The eight-time champions are listed at 8/1 to lift their first title since 2017.
