Super League Grand Final Betting Tip
St Helens v Salford Red Devils Tips
This weekend it will be the 21st Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford. St Helens will make their way from Merseyside for their 11th appearance in a final. Surprise package Salford Red Devils will try to upset the odds and land glory.
St Helens managed to win the first trophy back in 1999 and so far they have managed to secure four titles. It is worth mentioning though that they have also conceded five straight defeats in the final from 2007 to 2011.
Salford will be able to count on Steve Prescott who was awarded the Man of Steel prize earlier this week. The Australian legend was pivotal in the 28-4 win Semi-Final success over Wigan and can be backed at an attractive 16/5 to score anytime with Paddy Power in the final.
Over to St Helen’s side we find Lachlan Coote who has been a key figure in St Helens’ rise to the top of the Regular season table. If Saints manage to beat Salford this weekend, he will become the 13th overseas player to land both the NRL Grand Final and the Super League Final. He is at 6/1 to win the Harry Sunderland Trophy with William Hill, and this won’t be surprising considering the great season he has had.
Salford defeated Saints last time in March 2017, and we don’t think they will be able to cause another upset in this final. Justin Holbrook’s men have managed to win their last three games by 14+. Bookmakers are giving Salford a ten-point start so backing Saints to win with a -14 handicap looks decent at 6/5 with William Hill.
