Cash Back if the Origin Opener is Tight
May 19, 2015
The State of Origin sides have only just been announced and the camps are still to come before the Maroons and Blues battle once more. But Sportsbet’s super excited for the series and they’ve already got on offer on the opening game! Place a head to head bet on Either New South Wales or Queensland to win Game One next Wednesday and if your team loses by 8 points or less, your stake will be refunded up to $100. That’s right, money back on your first bet head to head if you back the Cockroaches or the Cane toads and they’re defeated by less than 9.
8 Points a Big Buffer in Recent Origin Openers
New South Wales are the reigning Champions and have home ground advantage for the Origin opener but you can still get over evens on the hosts to win the first match on Sportsbet’s Head to Head Market. The visitors are favourites, paying around close to $1.75. In the past 10 series Queensland have won Game One 6 times and gone onto to win the Shield on 5 occasions. However the Blues triumphed in the last 2 series openers. They blew a 1 nil lead in 2013 but didn’t make the same mistake last year. It’s often said the opener is a tight occasion and the statistics certainly agree. The past 5 State of Origin openers have been decided by less than 9 points with Queensland’s 18-10 win in 2012 the biggest margin. So is Sportsbet’s offer on the money?
Entering the Origin Arena
2 Bulldogs will get a chance to sink their teeth into State of Origin for the first time. Canterbury duo David Klemmer and Josh Jackson have both played for Australia, now their set to pull on the sky blue jersey in Sydney. The latter will start at lock while Klemmer will aim to be barnstorming from the bench. Also hoping to provide impact from the interchange is Queensland’s debutants. Brisbane Broncos forward Josh McGuire looks suited to Origin footy while Cowboy Michael Morgan should provide a different sort of spark. Morgan wasn’t originally named in the Maroons side but he’s replaced the injured Daly Cherry Evans.
