Challenge Cup final odds: Wigan Warriors favourites for Wembley glory

It's all or nothing at Wembley on Saturday as Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves go head-to-head in the 2024 Challenge Cup final.

Wigan are by far the most successful team in the history of this competition which dates all the way back to 1896.

The Warriors have lifted the famous trophy on 20 previous occasions, with their closest competitors Leeds Rhinos claiming the title 14 times.

Warrington have also enjoyed Challenge Cup success, being crowned champions nine times to make them the fourth most successful team in this competition’s 128-year history.

Wigan and Warrington are now preparing for Saturday’s showdown in the capital but only one side will be heading back to the north-west of England with the solid silver trophy.

Challenge Cup Final Odds

Wigan Warriors - 4/9
Warrington Wolves -

Wigan Warriors

Entering the competition as usual in the sixth round, Wigan have blown away all before them to reach the Challenge Cup final this year.

Sheffield Eagles proved little match for the Warriors at DW Stadium in March, as the reigning Super League champions won 44-18.

Into the quarter-finals and Wigan made the trip across the Pennines to face Castleford, however, the Tigers barely laid a scratch on Matt Peet’s side in a 60-6 win for the visitors.

The Warriors faced a dangerous Hull KR side on neutral ground at the Eco-Power Stadium in Doncaster for the semi-finals, but the the Robins fell to a 38-6 defeat.

Now only Warrington stand in the way of Wigan and a 21st Challenge Cup title, with the Warriors at 4/9 to win the 80 minutes, while a tie is available at 20/1.

Considering Wigan are the favourites, the Warriors are also available at 10/11 with a -6.5 handicap.

The Warriors to win by a margin of 1-12 is 13/10, while Peet’s side to put in another emphatic performance and win by 13+ points is currently 2/1.

Warrington Wolves

Warrington have also brushed aside any challenges that have come their way to reach this season’s final at Wembley.

Hosting the London Broncos at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in the sixth round, the Wire romped to a 42-0 victory over the capital outfit.

Warrington had a tough draw in the quarter-finals with a trip to the Totally Wicked Stadium to face the 13-time Challenge Cup winners St Helens.

However, the Wolves produced an impressive performance to earn a 31-8 win over the Saints.

It was back to the Totally Wicked Stadium for the semi-final and the Merseyside venue continued to be a happy hunting ground for the Wolves, as they earned a 46-10 win over Huddersfield Giants.

Now Warrington have Wigan in their sights and they will be looking for revenge after losing 19-18 to the Warriors at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Super League on 1st June.

That encounter in Cheshire was a dress rehearsal for the action to come at Wembley, with Warrington at 7/4 to lift the trophy at Wembley.

The Wire last lifted the Challenge Cup in 2019 as they earned an 18-4 win over St Helens in front of 62,717 spectators.

That was the largest crown at a Challenge Cup final in the last six years and another bumper crowd is expected at Wembley this weekend to witness who will land the first domestic silverware of the 2024 campaign.
