Warrington v Wigan: Lethal Lineham to shine in Grand Final

| 08.10.2016

Warrington Wolves and Wigan Warriors meet for the fourth time this season at Old Trafford, and after a trio of terrific meetings, it’s Tony Smith’s men who should be backed for victory in the Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford.

The Wire have dominated Super League this season, finishing top of the pile after the Super 8s, as the country’s highest scorers with 852 points, and boasting the meanest defence with just 541 conceded.

They’ve also beaten Shaun Wane’s side twice this season, including a 40-10 hammering of Wigan at the Halliwell Jones Stadium back in April.

One man who’s already crossed the line against the Warriors this season is winger Tom Lineham, and with 15 tries under his belt in 2016, he looks well worth backing to score a try anytime at 11/8.

However, when the 24-year-old scores, he often grabs a couple, so the 9/1 for Lineham to score two or more tries could well offer top-notch value.

For those looking at the points markets, the best bet looks to be on Warrington winning more than 12 points, one of our enhanced price boosts, which was 3/1 NOW 4/1.

As well as smashing the Greater Manchester outfit by a 30-point margin back in the Spring, the Wolves have won another 11 games by more than a dozen points, while Wigan have shipped 88 points in their last four games.

In the match betting, Warrington are unsurprisingly favourites at 5/6, while Wane’s charges are 6/5 and the draw is priced at 16/1.
