2021 Challenge Cup betting odds – St Helens huge favourites

We’re down to the final two teams when it comes to the 2021 Challenge Cup, with St Helens and Castleford Tigers clashing at Wembley Stadium on 17 July 2021, with spectators likely to be in attendance for this big cup competition, with the sides having navigated their way through several rounds to reach this stage of proceedings.

St Helens Huge Favourites to Be Crowned Champions

The Saints have looked the part during the 2021 rugby league season, with the north-west side having overcome Leeds Rhinos in a relatively tight third round clash before meeting Huddersfield Giants at the last eight stage and this was also a gruelling encounter which saw them come through and win 23-18.

The semi-finals saw St Helens beat Hull F.C. 33-18 and they are strong favourites to now get the job done, with Kristian Woolf’s side having previously been crowned Super League champions in 2019 and 2020, with the bookies taking no chances with their betting odds about them winning.

However, St Helens have not had their hands on a Challenge Cup since 2008 when they completed a consecutive hat-trick in this competition and anything is possible in a one-off final, with Castleford looking to give things a crack.

Castleford Tigers Big Betting Outsiders to Win Challenge Cup

Castleford Tigers did make it to the Super League Final in 2016 when they were soundly beaten by Leeds Rhinos although the Yorkshire side are a good deal stronger than five years ago, with the Tigers making their last Challenge Cup final appearance in 2014, although it looks like a tall order to see them landing a win.

There have been some slender victories along the way including two wins by a golden point in extra-time, with Hull KR defeated in this manner in the third round, while Salford Red Devils were also narrowly despatched and this set up a semi-final against Warrington Wolves which was enjoyed by fifteen points.
