Quins set to smash Salford

Salford travel to The Stoop to face a Harlequins side who are looking for their first win in eight games.

Salford's problems have been as much on the field as off, The Reds coach Shaun McRae who had been on leave due to medical advice has departed to allow the club assistant coach Phil Veivers take over. The sides are separated by just a point in the table as Harlequins sit just outside the playoff spots.

As a result the home side are 1/2 to win the clash while Salford are 6/4 to come away with a victory.

Quins are six point favourites on our handicap markets, you can back them at 10/11 minus the points, while Salford are also 10/11 plus six.  If you want some extra value we have a range of alternative handicaps, with both sides having losing results in their last few games this may be hard to judge. But I think that at 13/10 Harlequins minus 10 points is well worth some consideration.

Salford go into this game knowing that in their two Easter games they have let in over 100 points, the worst coming in a 60-0 hammering at Warrington.

But they have shown signs of recent improvement, against Warrington they only completed at 48%, but managed to turn it around and complete at 93% against Huddersfield.

Quins are set to be unchanged for this clash after losing away to Hull KR, the club are currently sat in mid-table and are playing somewhat above expectation.

Luke Dorn is 9/1 to score the first try of the game, he has scored eight tries for Harlequins this season. The Aussie is a focal point for the Quins attack. Salford's Jodie Broughton is 10/1 to go over first, he is the top Salford try scorer with nine tries this season.

With Salford coming into this game under new management, albeit temporarily, the players will be looking to impress and at 6/5 to score the firs team try they might not be a bad bet.

The double result of Harlequins/Harlequins is 10/11, while you can back Salford/Harlequins at 5/1 if you fancy the away side to get off to a good start.

For me it is hard to see past a home victory. Salford are undergoing a period of change and adjustment and at 13/10 Quins minus ten points is the bet to go with.
