There's nothing quite like rugby league over Easter weekend. Much like the Christmas period and football, the marriage of sport and time off usually produces some of the greatest matches and atmospheres of the entire season, especially with so many derby matches taking place.
With fuller crowds, more meaningful matches and local pride on the line, it's never an easy time to call which way a game is going to go - especially if you take in to account the unpredictability of Super League up until this point already.
With that said, all that means is that there's better chance of making bigger profits should you throw the dice in the right market - and that's what we're here to help with.
Leeds Rhinos v Castleford Tigers
Live on Sky Sports 2
The closest either of these sides come to an inter-city rivalry, there's no love lost between these two, especially in the past few seasons. Cas have tended to save their best for the Rhinos, but it's undeniable that Leeds are almost always favourites beforehand, with their experience in big matches and will to win a huge boost to their chances.
Neither side will be entirely happy with the way in which they've started this season, but with two games over Easter to boost their tally in the league, this is a game that nobody can really afford to lose. Possibly the biggest derby since their meeting in the Challenge Cup final two years back, there's lots riding on how they perform in this one.
Home advantage will give the Tigers a well needed boost, and The Jungle is likely to be at capacity for such a crucial encounter. That said, however, Leeds are starting to get major stars back towards full fitness, and their performance against St Helens last time out showed how much of a difference that can make to both their defence and attack, culminating in easily their best performance of the season.
This will run close, and might come down to a last minute drop goal, but expect the Rhinos to just do enough to get themselves another much needed win.

Hull FC v Hull Kingston Rovers
Live on Sky Sports 1
As far as cross-city rivalries go, there aren't too many bigger dates in the calendar than when both sides in Hull come toe-to-toe. Packed out no matter where it's played, the Humber shows its loyalty to rugby league across Easter, and this fixture is usually a highlight of the weekend. While there was early season hope for FC after a bright start, they've tailed off in recent weeks, while KR have done much the opposite.
Parting with Chris Chester and bringing in James Webster, this will be a Hull derby coached by two former captains of each club, so there's no excuse for either to be unaware of how big an occasion this is for the locals. A big win last time out at home to high flying Salford will have given both KR and Webster a huge boost of confidence before the derby, but that doesn't mean FC will be any easier to play against.
As usual, the side who wins this will be the one who plays both the occasion and match the smarter. Keeping the penalty count down and staying disciplined throughout is crucial, as neither has a defence strong enough to bat away repeat sets or prolonged periods without the ball. Despite their win against the Red Devils, this might have come along too quickly for KR under Webster, so expect FC to use this as a springboard back in to their early season form, and Lee Radford to go home the happier former captain and current coach.

Wigan Warriors v St Helens
Live on Sky Sports 1
It's not Good Friday unless Wigan and Saints have taken ten lumps out of each other in the process, and this year doesn't look set to be any different. Having lost last time out at home to the much-hyped Widnes Vikings, that almost two-year streak at home without a loss has gone for the Warriors, and Saints won't be standing around feeling sorry for them.
Both sides have players missing, but it's undeniable that Wigan have started the season better than Saints have, playing much better rugby across the opening rounds. Despite that, however, this is one of those cliched occasions on which form really does go out of the window, and it's not unheard of for one of these sides to upset the odds and put in their performance of the season when we're least expecting it.
As always, this will likely be played at a high tempo right from the word go, with both sides tightly wound and focused on the task in hand. Much like in Hull, the side who keeps their discipline for the longest will likely come out on top, especially with both teams so evenly matched. If this were any other game, you'd suggest an easy Wigan win all day long, but Saints won't allow this to be too one sided.
It could be by a narrow margin, or we could have a rare derby blowout on our hands, but either way - Wigan Warriors should win this instalment.
