Tyrone Roberts: Backed to make big impact at Warrington

On the eve of the new Super League season, Sky Bet trader David Sykes provides his best bets, including a 25/1 top try-scorer fancy.

Man Of Steel

Tyrone Roberts (Warrington) – 16/1

Marquee signing, a half-back who kicks goals and scores tries, if Warrington have a good season Roberts will be a major contender for the end of season award.

Top Tryscorer

Jake Mamo (Huddersfield) – 16/1

Had his debut season in Super League cruelly cut short with injury, despite this he managed to score an impressive 12 tries in 9 games, if he replicates those stats in 2018 and stays healthy, 16/1 will be big value.

To Finish Bottom

Hull KR – 5/2

Battling with Widnes & Salford to avoid the wooden spoon, uninspiring pre-season signings make them the likeliest to finish bottom of the table

League Leaders Shield

Castleford – 10/3

The Tigers won the League Leaders Shield by an impressive ten point margin in 2017, how they cope with the loss of Zak Hardaker is key, but the squad depth is in place for a repeat performance in 2018
