Wigan Warriors appear to have the engage Super League regular season sewn-up as Michael McGuire’s side were cut to a best price of 1/50 with Skybet following their demolition of Hull FC.
The Warriors, who were 2/9 before the weekend, ripped through an injury-hit Hull side to run out 46-0 winners at the KC Stadium, with Pat Richards the star of the show thanks to his hat-trick of tries and seven goals.
And the Warriors’ cause was helped by Warrington Wolves falling to shock 29-28 defeat to bottom side Catalans Dragons in Perpignan.
The results put Wigan four points ahead of Warrington in the league standings with just four games of the regular season remaining, prompting the bookmakers slash prices on Wigan once again.
Warrington have now drifted out from 3/1 to a best price of 22/1 with Sportingbet to pick up the league leader’s shield.
St Helens continued their comeback to form with a dominant showing over Wakefield whilst champions Leeds Rhinos took advantage of Hull’s defeat to move into the top four with a win at Salford.
The weekend’s results also saw Wigan cut to 6/4 best price with Bet365, Boylesports, Coral and Paddy Power. Leeds, St Helens and Warrington are all available at 7/2.
