Hull KR v London (+10)

Hull KR have won three of their last five home games against London but everything will depend now on Michael Dobson being fit. London had a rare away win on their last start, but history shows they rarely repeat that. Hull KR are in the playoffs and could do with a morale-boosting win next week. If Dobson plays they win and cover.

Wakefield v Castleford (+4)

Wakefield have only won one of their last five home games against Castleford but the negativity coming out of Wakefield regarding the selling of players, injuries and the club's future is not a great way to prepare for the game. Castleford are scoring points for fun at the moment led by the departing Rangi Chase. Wakefield's major problem at the moment is they can't score points with their '6' and '7' Paul Sykes and Tim Smith unavailable. The thing in Wakefield's favour is they don't concede many and it is a local derby at home. Bearing that in mind, the Wildcats could rally together and rise to the occasion, so I'll take them to win and cover.
