8 POINTS HULL +12 BEAT LEEDS (UK RUGBY LEAGUE) @1.91 BWINFinal result: 34 - 20
Profit: 15.28 - 8 = 7.28
5th placed Hull take on 6th placed Leeds this weekend and the bookies have Leeds as massive favourites for this match but I dont make Leeds as big a favourite as they have and I think that if Hull play well this weekend they could actually beat Leeds so I am going for Hull +12 points to win this match which gives us the best possible chance of winning.
At home Hull have played 7 matches wining 5, drawing 1 and losing 1 and that loss was against 2nd placed Wigan. They have been able to win so many games by limiting their opponents try scoring chances and apart from the game against Wigan where they conceded 10 tries the other 6 matches generated just 15 tries for their opponents which is an average of just under 3 and Hull have only failed to score more than that on 3 occasions all season (home and away) so as long as they can restrict Leeds scoring then they have a great chance of covering this handicap as well as winning the match.
Leeds have played well at home but away have only managed to beat teams in the bottom 5 and the have lost all the matches they have played against better opposition. In each of these 3 matches they have lost they have managed to score only 1 try and that will be a concern for them particularly against the good defense of Hull.
In summary Hull are playing very well and have been limiting their opponents scoring and Leeds have had troubles scoring against teams who are not in the bottom third of the table and I think that Hull have a chance to win this match but the safer option is for Hull +12 to beat Leeds.
