Fred Done – co-founder of Birchwood-based Super League title sponsors Betfred – brings us his latest column...

WARRINGTON have been installed as third-favourites at Betfred to win the Grand Final at Old Trafford next year.

Newly-crowned Betfred Super League champions St Helens are 3/1 with the league’s title sponsors to do it all again…the same odds as Wigan!

Saints, who will be led through the next campaign by new boss Kristian Woolf, won the regular season by a record 16 points.

But the Warriors, boosted by the arrival of 2019 Man of Steel Jackson Hastings and a late surge last season, have got equal billing.

Next in the betting with Betfred are Challenge Cup holders Warrington, whose 2019 season went downhill after their against-the-odds triumph against Saints at Wembley in August.

They are 4/1 to win next year’s Grand Final, with Hull FC available at 9/1 and Yorkshire pair Castleford and Leeds both a 10/1 shot.

Catalans can be backed at 16/1 while this year’s surprise finalists Salford Red Devils are as wide as 33/1.

Those odds have raised eyebrows, but the club have lost their star man Hastings to Wigan – and remember, they were 100/1 this time last year though went on and proved the doubters wrong.

Meanwhile, all eyes will be on Toronto Wolfpack, the Canadian new boys to Betfred Super League, and whether they will significantly strengthen ahead of the new season.

They are 50/1 outsiders to win next year’s Grand Final – which is likely to be in October though no actual date is yet finalised – along with Huddersfield and Hull KR.

After England’s infamous 6-0 win against Bulgaria, Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions are 9/2 second favourites with us to win the 2020 European Championship.

France are favourites at 7/2 with Spain and Belgium both 7/1. Fast-improving Holland are 8/1 along with Germany while Ronaldo-inspired Portugal and Italy are both 14/1.

The biggest movers in this market are Turkey, who were 100/1 to win the tournament, which will have the semis and final at Wembley, but are now 50/1 after some big wagers in the London area.

Meanwhile, my congratulations to ex-chef and Betfred regular Gary Ritchie from Manchester, who had a quid on England to win 6-0 with Marcus Rashford, one of his favourite players from the current crop at United, to score first in Sofia.

After picking my pocket of £150, Gary is predicting that United will beat Premier League runaway leaders Liverpool at Old Trafford – and that Rashford will open the scoring.

That’s 80/1 but for you Gary, I admire your optimism and you can have 100/1 but don’t tell anyone!
