Referee for Sundays semi-final is Mr Leatherbarrow who we had against Sheffield at home few weeks ago.

Had a look on BetVictor, slightly suprising odd's!

 

Fev to win 2/11

Batley to win 4/1

Draw 25/1

 

(after 80 minutes)

I reckon Batley ought to be shorter odds than that.  They're a workmanlike side.

Agree. Everyone thinks it will be very close, with the exception of the bookies.

16-12 and 18-12 tells its own story; 2 evenly matched sides;

Do not need to score tries against teams that give plenty needless penalties away, just score 1 more point than them

If we only score one try against Fev, we definitely won't win on this occasion. I'm pretty certain that they don't have a pair of imbeciles equivalent to Maden and Higson in their team.

Not saying Fev aren't favourites, just that the odds aren't right.

Fair enough. As someone who does not understand bookie's odds, what do the odds suggest in terms of a score? Looking at the odds, do you get an idea of the margin of victory that the bookies expect?

 

However, one view of this game is that it is  1 v 5 with first having home advantage, having scored more points than any other team throughout the season and having conceded less than any other team throughout the season, playing having had a free week. Logic would suggest a decent win for Featherstone.

And they, like me sen, will have assessed that batley are unlikely to just roll over.

Logic would suggest a decent win for Featherstone.

 

Batley at 4-1 means that if, Fev played Batley five times, Fev would win 4 and Batley 1.  At 25/1, one in 26 games would be drawn.  Fev's 11/2 means that in 13 games, Fev would win 11.  The odds say nothing about the score.   That's a whole new betting market.

 

Of course, the options never add up to 100%. The difference is the bookie's margin.  Ideally, of course, whatever the outcome, he has more money staked than he needs to pay out.
