NSW still favourites for 2016 State Of Origin Game 1

May 31, 2016

state-of-origin03Punters at online bookmaker Sportsbet are asking “How are NSW still favourites for State Of Origin Game 1?”

With money running almost 3:1 in favour of Queensland in the Origin Opener, NSW are favourites despite a lack of punter support.

At least one punter believs Sportsbet has got the market all wrong, placing $22,500 on Queensland to win State of Origin One at odds of $2.00.

Sportsbet has NSW as the $1.85 favourites despite the fact that nearly three times as money has gone on the Maroons to win the game.

A Queensland 13+ victory is the outsider in the winning margin market at $6.00, but also the most popular amongst punters.

Incredibly, more than one-third of all money bet on the game’s first tryscorer has gone on Queensland winger Corey Oates, who’s the favourite at $9.00.

“Not even an avalanche of money for Queensland has been able to displace NSW from favouritism,” said Sportsbet’s Christian Jantzen.

“We might be left looking a bit silly if the Blues don’t get up tomorrow night.”
