Warrington Wolves have been installed as 7/4 favourites to retain the Carnegie Challenge Cup at Wembley on Saturday August 28.

The RFL’s official betting partner William Hill also have the Cup holders as odds-on favourites to beat Catalans Dragons when the two sides meet in their semi-final at Stobart Stadium, Halton on Sunday August 8 (3.30).

Warrington are priced at 1/4 to avenge the 29-28 defeat they suffered at the hands of Catalans in an Engage Super League Round 23 fixture in Perpignan last Saturday.

The Dragons are 11/4 to complete a quickfire Cup and Super League double over Warrington and 14/1 outsiders to become the first non-English side to win the Carnegie Challenge Cup in the competition’s 113-year history.

William Hill are unable to separate Leeds Rhinos and St Helens ahead of their semi-final at Galpharm Stadium, Huddersfield on Saturday August 7. Both clubs are priced at 10/11 to win.

Leeds and Saints are also quoted at the same odds of 15/8 to win at Wembley, a feat St Helens have achieved twice in the last three years but one that has eluded Leeds since the last final at the old Wembley Stadium in 1999.

If you put a £10 stake on Wire to win the semi at 1/4 then put the whole lot on them to win the final (say even money) would you win more or less money than betting £10 on Leeds or Saints to win their semi at 10/11 and then putting the whole lot on them to win the final (say even money)?

There lies your answer wink.gif

You will win more money backing Saints or Leeds with two singles (SF and Final) than backing Wire with two singles (SF and Final). Less money back = shorter the odds. Shorter the odds = favourites. That is why Warrington are favourites for the CC.

Warrington are installed as favourites at this moment in time because on paper they are expected to beat catalans where the other semi is harder to predict, come the final, chances are that Leeds/saints will be favourites.

No worries. You are right about the final though. I would presume that Leeds or Saints would be slight favouries over Wire (if they got through) due to the amount of silverware and big games over the last few years etc. It will be pretty close betting though.

Thats the main reason why cos Wire are expected to demolish Catalans, whereas Leeds v Saints could go anyway.

Wire wont give up that easy though we want to retain that cup!!! biggrin.gif

A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.
