I always bet on the Grand Final and as much as it pains me I had to bet on Warrington, I'm not willing to throw money away just because I don't want them to win!

Last week was Leeds Grand Final, Wire are different to Wigan and seem to have the beating of Leeds when it matters. They dominated the cup final and will dominate tonight, Wire by 13+ is what my money is on.

The winnings won't but you're forgetting you get your stake back with a winning bet.

So if he puts £10 on each bet, that's a £20 outlay.

If the first bet wins at 11/10 he gets £21 back.

If the second bet wins at 17/16 he gets £20.62 back.

Hence why it's only worth putting a large amount on each and having a covering bet on the draw.

Or like me you might have backed Warrington when they went out to 3/1 before they played Saints, then had a covering bet on Leeds at 13/8 this week and be feeling very smug right now.

         SL Hit Man 2016 - Danny Houghton (1,289 tackles)                        SL Club of the Year 2016 - Hull FC
