Hull FC v Huddersfield Total Points - Under 40.5

Rugby league - Super League - 01 Feb 19:45

Hull FC pride themselves on defence, last season they ranked 4th in both points conceded and in tackles made. They actually conceded an average of 21 points per games last season.

Last season they also started the season solid in defence, seemingly as a ploy to slowly work themselves into form early in the season. In the opening game last season they won 12-8 (away) and then lost 16-14 (home). Both comfortably under this line.

I suspect Hull FC will start this season the same, solid in defence as always but struggling to score themselves due to a lack of match practise. I'm expecting the opening game this season to be under this line too.

Something else to consider in that Hull FC share the KCOM stadium with the football team who actually played here Tuesday night. It's unlikely to be a bog but it must be loose on top and could cut up. In the first game of the season when players are lacking match fitness this could lead to a slow and boring affair, with players tiring as the game goes on.

I'm not worried about Huddersfield scoring many as I don't rate them and think they're in for a long season. They do need to start well in defence though and adopt a Hull FC like approach so they're the perfect side for this bet.

More than happy to see a line of 40.5, I think it should be 36.5 which gives us a some nice early season value.
