The Challenge Cup will shortly be coming to an end but there are still five teams in the running, however it does look like St Helens are going to be crowned champions of that tournament this year, and with odds of 5/6 still on offer on them that does look like a very reasonable punt.
However, some punters are averse to backing odds on favourites, and will be hunting around for a bit better value, and one team that is still on offer at odds of 2/1 at betting sites such as BetFred is Warrington, and they do look like the current value bet.
If you haven’t yet signed up to that betting site or any of our other featured ones then now is the time to do so for each of them are offering all manner of incentives by way of sign up bonuses to their new customers, so make sur you do check out some of our approved bookies if you are on the hunt for a new betting site to sign up to and bet at, and make sur you take advantage of those sign up offers and deals too.
Don’t Underestimate the Chances of Hull FC
There are of course five teams competing for the Challenge Cup, and whilst the two listed below have virtually no chance of winning that isn’t necessarily the case for Hull FC.
In fact, a fair number of punters have been eager to take their chances on Hull FC this season and as such they are currently being backed by a few speculative punters at odds as big as 4/1, but do shop around if you fancy backing Hull FC for some bookies may offering you ever so slightly higher odds right now than 4/1.
The Underdogs to Win
Mots punters are going to be backing St Helens to win the Challenge Cup this year, and I am confident that many punters at this stage of the competition will also be backing the likes of Warrington and Hull FC too.
Therefore, it is on those three teams the smart money is going, and that does of course mean that the other two teams that are part of the Challenge Cup are the massive underdogs to win, and boy would it be a shock if one of them did go on to win.
It is Bradford who are next in the betting, however their odds do massively jump in value compared to the three teams listed up above, for they are an 80/1 shot to win, and as for the odds of the other team, that being Halifax they are very easy to back at odds of 100/1 right now.
Value hunters and savvy sports bettors will however be aware that when you do fancy backing the underdogs to win any sporting event, your first port of call should be a betting exchange such as Betfair, for the odds you will be offered will be higher than those a bookmaker will be offering you.
