Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Red Devils Betting Tips: Form Guide

The Leeds Rhinos Comeback Story Faces Another Challenge

The fall from grace of last year’s champions has made headlines, as they faced potential relegation after their disastrous season led them out of the Super 8 and into the qualifiers. However, that fear must have lit a fire in the hearts of the Rhinos because they’ve since staged something of a comeback.

This began with their 48-22 win over Toulouse and continued in earnest with a 48-32 win over the London Broncos. Even their nail-biting 38-36 loss to Hull KR couldn’t stop their momentum and seems to have barely made a dent in Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Red Devils betting tips for today. Even in defeat, they’d begun to look something like the Rhinos of old. Another 16-6 win over Widnes Vikings leads them into this match, and although that didn’t exactly set the world on fire performance wise, it’s more points on route back to the Super League next year.

Do these performances really show a team that’s gotten its act back together though? Or have they just benefitted from the weaker competition? A match against a team undefeated thus far in the qualifiers will be a big test of their improvements.

Salford Red Devils Continue To Silence Their Doubters

While they’ve not made as many headlines as their opponents, Salford Red Devils have had something of a retribution story of their own. Let’s not forget that they also had a terrible season, crashing even further down the league table than the Rhinos. They have also had even greater success since, winning every single game in the qualifiers so far.

They started off by repeating their 2016 Million Pound Game victory with a 28-10 win over Hull KR – the same team that Leeds Rhinos failed to beat mere weeks later. We are surprised that this fact hasn’t had a larger impact on Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Red Devils match previews. This was followed by a 32-6 win over Widnes. Once again, this win was by a larger margin than their opponents managed against the same side. More impressive was their comprehensive 62-4 victory over Halifax, and they head into this contest off the back of a 28-16 triumph over Toronto.

Not only have Salford won every match in the qualifiers but they’ve done so in style and, for the most part, with ease. The Rhinos might be the biggest challenge they’ve faced yet, but Salford may just shock the world and prove this isn’t Leeds’ comeback story after all: it’s theirs.

Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Red Devils Preview: Recent Meetings

Many fans will remember that in their last head-to-head encounter, Salford bested Leeds by 38-22. Worse still for the Rhinos, this was only back at the end of July, just before the qualifiers games began. It’s another reason why its a surprise more Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Red Devils betting tips don’t give the away team more of a chance.

Before that though, it’s all Leeds. It’s also worth pointing out that their 20-0 win in April of this year was more impressive and also not that long ago either. They beat Salford three times in 2017 too, with the start of 2016 signalling the last Salford victory.

We’d give Leeds the slight edge here, as they have won more often and have a victory almost as recently as their opponents. Still, that July triumph will no doubt boost Salford’s confidence.

Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Red Devils Prediction: Rhinos Continue Comeback

If you’re a Salford fan, you have plenty of reasons to be confident heading into this match. They have the better record in the qualifiers thus far, have recently beat the Rhinos and have even performed better against teams that Leeds have recently faced. That’s why it’s a surprise that so many bookmakers appear to see them as such underdogs. However, just because we think the gap between these two is smaller than some have suggested, that doesn’t mean we think Salford are going to win.

Salford’s advantages are all very recent and the Rhinos have been edging closer to their former brilliance, even with the odd setback. Do we think a Leeds team that is back to their A-game can beat Salford? Most likely. Will we see that in this game? We’re not sure, but it’s very possible considering how important this match is to their efforts to remain in the Super League. And if they achieve anything close to their top level, they’ll prove to be a very, very tough side to beat.

For that reason, our Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Red Devils prediction is that the Rhinos win in an extremely tough battle.
