Wigan are the marginal favourites with most firms to win the Super League Grand Final after laying down a marker with recent victories away to both Hull and Warrington.
But, the Warriors, who are 8/15 to win when they host Hull in the semi-finals on Friday, are available at stand out odds of 9/4 with Stan James to claim the title, having lost the last two finals, compared to 7/4 elsewhere.
Warrington, who have yet to win a Super League Grand Final, can be backed at 2/1 with Unibet ahead of their semi-final meeting with St Helens, who along with Hull are 9/2 outsiders with Boylesports to win the final.
There have been signs in recent weeks that Hull’s exertions in the regular season, when they led the table for long periods and won the Challenge Cup, had caught up with them and they were well beaten by Warrington at the KCOM Stadium on Friday.
With four successive wins, Saints have built up a head of steam and perhaps look the more likely candidate to cause an upset, particularly as they won 20-18 at Warrington in the first round of Super 8 fixtures. They are 13/8 with Bet365 to win Thursday’s semi-final despite having reached the Grand Final in 7 of the last 9 years.
