It may be a tad too early for you to be turning your attention to betting on the team you think is going to lift and take home the RFL Challenge Cup, however one of our featured sportsbooks, that being MintBet are offering some extremely generous odds on that rugby tournament if you fancy your chances backing one of the teams in it.
However, as far as the value bet of the day, I think the 15/2 odds they are offering on Hull FC to win the title and cup are way too high to ignore!
Hull FC are not the favourites to win however that honour is currently with St Helens who are on offer at odds of 7/2, in fact there are plenty of other teams higher up the MintBet futures betting market too such as the Warrington Wolves at 17/4, the Wigan Warriors at 9/2 and also the Castleford Tigers 5/1.
Leeds Rhinos are available at the same odds those being 15/2, however on the balance of form I do think it is worth at the very least having a speculative bet on Hull to come out on top or even place an each-way bet on them coming first or second.
Each-Way Pays 1, 2 at 1/2 the Odds at MintBet!
As MintBet are going one half the outright winner odds and paying to two places on their RFL Challenge Cup futures betting market then you could be interested in having a bet on the likes of Catalans Dragons each-way and their odds are 12/1.
As for the only other teams that have albeit a slim chance of either winning or getting placed second, well they are the Huddersfield Giants at 16/1 and Wakefield Trinity who are trading at slightly higher odds right now, with those odds being 22/1.
Rank Outsider to Win the RFL Challenge Cup
Whether you are going to be interested in backing any of the outsiders to win the RFL Challenge Cup in 2019 is of course up to you, however I will now enlighten you on the odds that MintBet have currently got on offer on each of the teams that are not expected to win, but always keep in mind that they may just do!
There are three 50/1 shots currently and they are Toronto Wolfpack, Hull Kingston Rovers and the Salford Red Devils. The odds then double on the London Broncos who do not appear to have any chance of winning the title next year as they are up for grabs at odds of a whopping 100/1!
Next in the betting markets chalked up at odds of 125/1 are the Widnes Vikings, then you have teams such as Toulouse Olympique Xiii at 150/1, and the Bradford Bulls at huge odds of 200/1, and as for the chances of Leigh Centurions they are on offer at 200/1.
Finally you have the York City Knights, Halifax Blue Sox and the Featherstone Rovers who are, it is very fair to say completely friendless in the betting markets at odds of 250/1!
