You can't beat a bit of Bully value

Just a week after a memorable Challenge Cup semi-final win, Huddersfield welcome the Bradford Bulls to the Galpharm Stadium.

While the betting suggests that third-in-the league Giants, 4/11 to win in 80 Minutes, should have an easy Sunday evening against a team placed 12th there are many indicators that there may be a shock in this West Yorkshire derby.

The key to Huddersfield's success this season has been discipline and sticking to their game plan. Their slow methodical play simply stopped St Helens in their tracks in last week's semi but their heads are likely to already be at Wembley. The distraction of the chance of lifting the Challenge Cup for the first time in 56 years will be their undoing.

Incidentally, the compilers can't split the two finalists as both Huddersfield and Warrington are 5/6 to lift the famous cup. Bet now

Bradford, 2/1 to win the match, have had a rocky season but have themselves beaten St Helens and Leeds Rhinos and are coming off the back of a convincing and encouraging win at the Harlequins last week.

The main handicap line offers the Bulls an eight-point start at 10/11 but they shouldn't need that much, if any. Alternative lines of Bradford (+4) at 13/10 or even (-2) at 11/4 are where the value is.

It will still remain a close game as the Bradford defence is particularly leaky. Bradford to win by 1-12 points can be taken at 3/1.

The 9/1 about Huddersfield to be leading at half-time and Bradford to win the match, as the Giants tire late on, is also worth a consideration.

The match kicks off at 19:00 live on Sky Sports and you can bet In-Play on the 80 Minute result, a selection fo handicaps and total points markets right up to the final hooter.
