THE PREDICTION

Wakefield Trinity will have high hopes of ending their 14-match losing streak to local rivals Castleford Tigers as the pair do battle in this midweek Super League contest. Wakefield come into this on the back of a loss to Warrington Wolves, although that was their first defeat in four matches. Castleford on the other hand were unable to build on the high of reaching the Challenge Cup final as their under-strength side went down to Hull FC last week, making it four straight Super League defeats. The Tigers have been able to name a stronger squad for this contest but the absence of Jake Trueman remains a big one and while Trinity can capitalise to prevail, it might pay to look at the points market here with all four of the pair’s most recent matches producing at least 46 points.
