    Just as many with a secret drinking problem I would imagine.

    But it is easier to spot the drinkers and more difficult to hide.

    That doesn't make it any less of a problem. I'd also say problems with alcohol are far more common.

    I agree with you that it does not make it less of a problem.

    However if you see all of these new betting companies opening up all the time. It is obvious that these companies are not surviving on people that make a 5 pounds bet once a week.

    I get what you're saying but what's the solution? Ban gambling and booze because some people can't handle it? Might as well change our name to Saudi Arabia too and at least we'll have plenty of oil.

    I don't think it should be banned but undoubtedly it is a problem in society. Not any easy answers. I am glad they reduced the maximum play on roulette machines and banned transferring of money in to betting accounts from credit cards

    Saints look good value to win by more than 20. I think a 28 point win on the cards

    Warrington are still favourites with most of their pack missing. Might have to have a go on FC.

    Can't see us winning by more than 12 points, personally I'd take a 1 point win

    Hull are a good bet this weekend,

    Got 10/3 on Hull -9. If Saints get roll on, we'll batter them, if they're allowed to slow it down it will be hard going.

    I see Catalan have gone top with less points. After having a good bet pre-season on Saint's finishing top would hate to have the most points yet not finish top.
