Leeds Rhinos v Catalans Dragons: Tips, predictions and odds

Catalans Dragons suffered the heartache of another Grand Final defeat last season, but they haven't let their narrow loss to Wigan Warriors at Old Trafford get to them in the opening rounds of the 2024 Super League campaign.

It's two wins from two for the French raiders but Leeds Rhinos have found things more of a struggle in their first two fixtures.

The Headingley men opened with an unconvincing come-from-behind home win over Salford, but followed it up with a deserved loss at Hull KR last week.

This promises to be an enthralling contest but the Rhinos look uneasy favourites at Headingley on Saturday afternoon.

Leeds Rhinos v Catalans Dragons betting predictions

Catalans Dragons to win by 1 to 12 points – 21/10

It was 61-0 to Catalans when these two last met in September and although things should be much tighter this time around, the French side are fancied to again come out on top.

There appears to be no lingering hangover from the Dragons' 10-2 Grand Final loss in October, and the points have flowed for the men from Perpignan.

A tricky first-round fixture saw them beat Warrington Wolves 16-12 on home soil, but they made much lighter work of newly-promoted London Broncos in a 34-0 hammering in the English capital last week.

That won't be the last time the Broncos get a pasting this season but it was a good run out for the Dragons with four different players crossing the whitewash.

And recent history points to an away win on Saturday, too.

Catalans have won on three of their last four visits to Leeds, and they are fancied to do so once again, but don't bank on a heavy-scoring affair.

Eight of the last nine meetings have been settled by a winning margin of 14 points or fewer, so the 21/10 that the Dragons win by no more than two converted tries looks a decent bet.

Catalans Dragons to score the first try – 10/11

Catalans Dragons scored the first try in both meetings with Leeds Rhinos last season, and two of their three regular-season showdowns in 2022, so the 10/11 that they bag the first try at Headingley again this week could also be a value wager.

The French raiders have plundered eight tries in just two matches this season so are clearly clicking in attack, even at this early stage.

A routine run-out against league new boys London last week will have helped add some polish to their attacking plays and they could see the benefit against Leeds on Saturday.

The Rhinos conceded three tries to Hull KR last week but the Dragons pose arguably even more of a threat and it would be no surprise to see the visitors cross the whitewash first at Headingley.
