Ian Millward double: Huddersfield & Hull KR

Huddersfield v Bradford +26

I make the Giants one of the better bets of the weekend. These two have clashed twice before this season with Huddersfield comfortably winning both. Each was a high scoring encounter, with 70 and 84 points registered respectively, and expect plenty of tries again. The Giants are looking to hit back from two defeats, where the absence of key men has been a major contributory factor, but I think they’ll have too much for the Bulls.

Hull KR v Salford +2

These two sides drew in the reverse fixture. Salford have been showing signs of becoming more consistent over the last few weeks but their form on the road has been patchy all year. Hull KR have a new coach and he can point to a big win over St Helens and a very good display at Leeds in his two games so far. I think Rovers match Salford at hooker and in the halves, plus they have the edge elsewhere so I’m confident they can win and cover.
