Super League Grand Final 2023: Warriors & Dragons Set for Epic Showdown

Wigan Warriors and Catalans Dragons will meet in the 2023 Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.

The Warriors booked their place in the final by beating Hull Kingston Rovers, while the Dragons eased past reigning champions St Helens.

Read on as we assess three key betting angles ahead of what promises to be a fitting culmination to an exciting Super League season.


  • Fans could be treated to a high-scoring encounter.
  • Flying wingers set to shine.
  • Total tries market looks tempting.

Defences Set for a Torrid Evening

The two sides each averaged almost 27 points per game during the regular season, which suggests their respective defences could be in for a tough time at Old Trafford.

With five of the last ten Grand Finals featuring 29 points or more, it is not unrealistic to expect a high-scoring encounter this weekend.

Over 34.5 points in the game can be backed at odds of 16/11 on several UK betting apps and should give punters an excellent run for their money.

Wingers Aiming to Continue Stellar Form

Both teams have elite-level wingers in their ranks who are strongly fancied to get on the scoresheet this weekend.

Abbas Miski (Warriors) and Tom Johnstone (Dragons) have collectively racked up 55 tries between them this season and may well add to their tally this weekend.

They are each priced at 11/10 on numerous new betting sites to score a try on Saturday and it would be no surprise to see both players achieve the feat.

Total Tries Market Could Pay Dividends

With each team boasting plenty of attacking talent, backing over 5.5 tries in the total tries market could be the pathway to a tidy profit.

A handful of betting sites are offering odds of 6/5 on that outcome and punters seeking a value bet would be well advised to take advantage.

Their three regular season meeting saw a total of 23 tries scored – a tally which makes over 5.5 tries in the Grand Final look hugely enticing.
