Sports Betting: Rugby League - Edgy Bradford eased for title.

ANYBODY who backed Bradford to top Super League last season and watched the Bulls build up a lead just to throw it away will be feeling a sense of deja vu, writes Mark Langdon.

Bradford were long odds-on at one stage this season, but are now a best- priced 4-5 with Hills and Super Leaguer after they were beaten 18-14 by Warrington on Saturday.

Brian Noble's side have been known to lose their bottle in the past and history could be about to repeat itself.

Wigan managed to draw level on points with Bradford after comfortably seeing off London 46- 18 on Friday.

The two teams face each other at the JJB Stadium on August 31. The winner of that match would then be in a great position to become top seeds at the end-of-season play-offs.

St Helens have signed Darren Albert from Newcastle Knights on a two-year contract from next season.

Remaining fixtures - Bradford: Leeds (a), St Helens (h), Castleford (h), Wigan (a), Warrington (a), Leeds (h); Wigan: St Helens (a), Warrington (h), Leeds (a), Bradford (h), Castleford (a), St Helens (h).
