Huddersfield Giants vs Leeds Rhinos Super League betting tips - Giants to get one over on the champions

  • Huddersfield Giants host Leeds Rhinos at 2000 BST on Friday
  • Huby out for Giants with torn pectoral
  • Former Giant Ferres returns for Rhinos

Huddersfield Giants can move off the bottom of Super League with a win over fellow strugglers Leeds Rhinos on Friday evening.

Super League Match Odds Betfred: Huddersfield 8/13, Draw 22/1, Leeds 11/8 

The Giants and the Rhinos have surprised many people this season by struggling to make any impact and are up against it to make the top eight.

Huddersfield Giants are bottom of the standings with four points having won just two of their 12 Super League matches this season.

The Giants, who went down 26-19 away at Wigan Warriors last Thursday, will be without forward Craig Huby for a few months after tearing his pectoral muscle.

With Huby out of action there is a recall for former England international Eorl Crabtree, while Gene Ormsby is expected to start on the wing before his loan spell from Warrington Wolves ends.

Leeds, who won the Treble last season, have only won three matches all season and come into this game on the back of a 38-34 loss away at St Helens last Friday.

Everyone is looking forward to see how Brett Ferres fares on his return to Huddersfield for the first time since he was forced out of the club.

Ferres was allowed to join the Rhinos after it was revealed he had an affair with team-mate and best friend Huby's wife. A lot of the players allegedly refused to play with Ferres which forced the Giants’ hand into selling him, and maybe it is a good thing that Huby is ruled out as there could have been more than fireworks on display.

Rhinos coach Brian McDermott has named Danny McGuire and Zak Hardaker in his 19-man squad but it is believed none of them will actually play.

If McGuire and Hardaker are both not fit to play, then the Giants will be in with a great shot of claiming their third win of the campaign. We are backing Huddersfield to win this game by 1-10 points at 12/5 with Paddy Power.

Huddersfield Giants host Leeds Rhinos at the John Smith’s Stadium on Friday, April 29 with a kick-off time of 2000 BST. This game will be shown live on Sky Sports.
