My Castleford team have had the week off and Leeds had to play on Monday night and that will be an advantage for us.
I went to see Leeds play and Rob Burrow is in outstanding form while Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Kyle Leuluai are leading their pack extremely well
We have Kirk Dixon out for the season and unfortunately Josh Griffin has not made it back from injury to replace him but we have had a good week and I anticipate Rangi Chase will have a good game.
It is a derby match with two passionate sets of fans and myself and the players are really excited - watch out for the Tigers on Sunday!
Bradford v Wakefield (+4)
Wakefield were extremely unlucky to lose against Leeds on Monday while Bradford are coming off a disappointing loss to St Helens before the international break. It will be interesting to see if all the administration talk affects the Bulls' mentality but they should be a little fresher physically. I see them hitting back, getting the two points and covering against the Wildcats.
Huddersfield v London (+16)
Who would have expected the Giants to lose five in a row and they have hit that mid-season slump again? This is a crunch game for them and they have got to win. London are not a team to throw the ball around a lot so this is the game for the Giants to get their confidence. Huddersfield to win and cover.
Warrington v Hull (+16)
Warrington have a few players backing up from international duty and maybe there is a chance of Michael Monaghan returning which will be outstanding for the hosts as he is pivotal to a lot of their attacks. Hull have been very good this year and have suffered three close losses in their last four games after leading until the death. It has been a fine line for them but I like the way Warrington are starting to build and I see a good afternoon for them.
Wigan v Widnes (+40)
Forty points is a huge handicap and bear in mind Wigan will be without Thomas Leuluai and Harrison Hansen, who have both been pivotal players in their excellent form this season. Brett Finch is still there to get them around the park but Widnes have beaten them this year at home and the weather conditions will play a part. I am going a little from leftfield here and I am taking Widnes with such a big start.
Bulldogs (+2) v Storm
Canterbury have really hit some form with successive wins while Billy Slater is out for Melbourne so it will be interesting to see how they handle that. Earlier in the year, Melbourne beat Canterbury but the latter played really well and with their recent improved form and wins at home, I think they can cause an upset here.
