Although they claimed it wouldn't happen, Leeds have repeated the same poor post-Challenge Cup winning form that derailed them last season, opening the door for Wigan to claim top spot. With a local derby away at St Helens though, the Warriors have an awful lot left to do if they're to topple the Rhinos at the final hurdle.
Further down the league, Huddersfield will be hoping to close the gap on the league summit themselves, and the Middle 8s have yet to find out who'll be facing off in that Million Pound decider. There's only one more game of this middle section of the season left after this. Here are the best bets.
1 - St Helens to beat Wigan Warriors @ 10/11
These two are obviously no strangers, and matches this season have gone with home advantage. This time around, however, the tables have turned, as Saints were above Wigan the last two times these two have come toe-to-toe. Wigan would like nothing more than to halt Saints' recent bout of good form after a period of struggle, while the home side needs no more incentive than knowing a victory would deny their local rivals first place.
If this match becomes an arm wrestle, expect Saints to come out on top. However, if there's space enough for the Wigan backs to get going in an open encounter, there's not a lot Saints can do to stop them. Both sides are the same price to win this one, but Saints are at home and looking vulnerable and that's when they're at their most dangerous.
2 - Huddersfield Giants to beat Hull FC by a margin of 1-10pts @ 21/10
Huddersfield might just actually be the most in-form side in the entire completion at the moment, with Paul Anderson finally getting the most out of his team after a slow start. Their defence is one of the most well-drilled in the league, and their attack well-balanced, with strong wings backed up by try scoring forwards.
Perhaps less star power than their top four rivals, Huddersfield are a pure, cohesive side, and Hull FC won't be able to live with that. Despite home advantage, FC have nothing left to play for, and with the Giants riding so high on confidence, this match is only really going one way.
3 - Widnes Vikings to beat Salford Red Devils by +13pts or more @ 20/23
Since we last looked at a Salford game, there's been more drama at the club to cover. The owner, Marwan Koukash, has been taking extremely public shots at the Leeds Rhinos head coach Brian McDermott, and their own head coach, Iestyn Harris, left the club after a long period away with an illness. In the meantime, Salford have battled along in the Middle 8s, winning four of their five games so far.
Widnes, meanwhile, are a much happier club. Settling in to form early on in the qualifiers, they're second only to Hull KR, who are as yet unbeaten. With home advantage key for Widnes on their notorious artificial surface, and Salford all but guaranteed another season in Super League, this could be an end of season party for the home side. Widnes should win, and win big.
