Warrington Wolves and St Helens are the last two teams standing in the Challenge Cup final, with the sides having come through various knockout rounds for the honour of lining up at Wembley Stadium.

Warrington beat Hull FC to take their place in the final on 24 August, with the Wolves enjoying a fairly narrow 22-14 victory and they previously overcame another Hull side by beating Kingston Rovers in the quarter finals.

Similarly, St Helens enjoyed a crushing semi-final victory to beat Halifax in the last four of the Challenge Cup, while they also enjoyed a 38-point margin of victory over Wakefield Trinity.

St Helens Favourites to win 2019 Challenge Cup

St Helens produced two convincing performances to reach the Challenge Cup final and it’s little surprise that they are trading as favourites to win this competition, with bookmaker bet365 going 1.40 that Justin Holbrook’s team are triumphant at Wembley.

The Saints have been a class act over the past few months and currently look like the strongest rugby league team in England, with customers able to back them at 1.80 with a -7.5 point handicap which means that you would win with your bet if they land a victory by 8 points or more.

As for Warrington, they are 3.00 with bet365 to be triumphant during normal time and they will have to hatch a game plan to make sure that St Helens aren’t rampant on that big pitch at Wembley.

If you’re expecting a close tussle, then you can get an interesting price of 2.00 that the Wolves claim a victory with a +7.5 point handicap and it could be closer than the odds suggest.

Bet on the Challenge Cup Winning Margin

Bookmakers have a wide range of betting markets available when it comes to the Challenge Cup, with customers able to wager on the Winning Margin and it’s a fantastic chance to enjoy enhanced odds about a particular team winning providing that you can forecast the victorious margin.

For example, a St Helens victory between 1-12 points can be backed at 2.60 which is significantly bigger than the 1.40 on the match betting, with odds of 2.50 available that the Saints enjoy a victory by 13 points or more.

There is also the chance to bet on markets such as Total Points, First Tryscorer and Double Result. You might fancy Warrington to lead at half-time and full-time and that can be backed at 5.00.
