Sportsbet’s State of Origin Specials to Help Punters Decide on the Decider
July 01, 2015
Unlike last year, the 2015 State of Origin Series will be decided in game 3 and we’ll know next Wednesday which state can claim bragging rights for 12 months. Punters who’ve placed wagers on the series so far with Sportsbet have saved almost 1 and half million dollars thanks to the bookmaker’s offers on game 1 and game 2. In fact around 47,000 Sportsbet members have been refunded over the 2 encounters either via the bookmaker’s Head to Head special or First Tryscorer refund. Both promotions are back for the deciders, so sign up with Sports bet if you haven’t already, and you could save some serious cash.
Another Head to Head Refund?
Queensland may have lost game 2 in Melbourne but Sportsbet clients who backed them head to head DIDN’T lose, as the Maroons managed to remain within 8 points of their rivals. The 26-18 scoreline was right on the border of Sportsbet’s money back special if either side is defeated by less than 9 points. It was the fifth successive time Sportsbet’s promotion provided punters a refund, so will the decider in Brisbane be another tight affair? Queensland are currently around $1.62 to win while the Blues are $2.35 outsiders.
First Tryscorer Special to the Rescue Again
Sportsbet refunded losing first tyrcorer bets on a whopping 6 players in Game 2 compared to just 3 in the opener, after 7 tries were scored in Melbourne. Michael Jennings got off the mark early but bets on popular picks Greg Inglis, Josh Morris, and Josh Dugan were returned after they also found crossed white line. Forwards Matt Gillet, Matt Scott and Aaron Woods were surprise scorers and wagers on those big boys were also given back to Sportsbet Customers.
Having missed the Melbourne match through injury, Queensland’s game 1 hero Cooper Cronk will be keen to make up for lost time. He’s at $26 to score the first try as he did in the opener in Sydney. Greg Inglis has switched to fullback for Queensland with Billy Slater out and he’s paying $11 to get try number 1, in jersey number 1. While Maroons debutant Dane Gagai is also $11 to cross first in his first State of Origin match. Blues centre Jennings is $12 to once again find the first try, while Josh Morris who’s scored in both battles is at $14 to grab the game’s opener.
