Sportsbet to Save More Punters in the Second State of Origin

Sportsbet refunded $655,000 to 22,000 punters in the State of Origin Opener and both specials are back for game 2.

The State of Origin sides for game 2 have been named which means the match in Melbourne is fast approaching! Sportsbet already have their offers up on the second showdown and their Head to Head Refund and First Tryscorer Special saved plenty of punters in game 1. In fact over 22,000 Sportsbet clients were refunded a total of $655,000 after the Maroons triumphed in the opener. While New South Wales lost, punters who backed them didn’t, with Sportsbet giving money back as the Blues were defeated by less than 9 points. Clients who backed Will Chambers, Beau Scott and Josh Morris to score the first try also got their cash back, after all 3 managed a four pointer after Cooper Cronk’s opening effort. So will you reload for round 2? And will your wagers remain the same or will you change your bets?

Blues at Big Odds

Having beaten the Blues in Sydney, albeit by a point, Queensland are even shorter than their game 1 odds, to win at the MCG. The Maroons are under $1.60 on Sportsbet’s Head to Head Market while New South Wales are $2.40 outsiders. The Canetoads are raging favourites to win the Series, paying just $1.11 while the Cockroaches are out to $6.50, though those prices will change if the latter are victorious in game 2.

At a sumptuous $26, Cooper Cronk was a great First Tryscorer pick in game 1….. If you were on him! But injury will prevent Storm star from tyring to repeat the feat in game 2. As he was in the Opener Darius Boyd is favourite to find the first try. At $9.50, he’s the only player under double figures. Boyd’s Queensland teammates, Will Chambers, Greg Inglis and Billy slater are all at shorter odds than New South Wales winger Brett Morris, who’s the underdog’s smallest price at an eye-catching $12. His brother Josh is back in the side after missing the opener through injury and is $15 to make an immediate impact!

New South Wales won the Series after triumphing in Game 2 last year, now Queensland can do the same! That match was decided by less than 9 points and if it happens again Sportsbet Members who back the losing team, will once again see their hard earned returned!
