State of Origin 2 - Don't Blow your Dough if your Team Blows a Lead
June 12, 2015
The Blues State of Origin reign will be short and not so sweet if they lose game 2 on Wednesday night! New South Wales went missing in the second half in Game 1 as Queensland came from behind to win by the narrowest of margins! Tom Waterhouse members who backed the Blues weren’t feeling quite as much pain as the players though, with the bookmaker’s Origin Opener offer saving plenty of punters plenty of money! Head to head wagers on New South Wales were returned up to $100 per customer, after the cockroaches led the Canetoads but failed to win. Tom’s special is back for game 2 and will once again rescue head to head bets on either losing team if they’ve led at any stage of the match.
Money on Maroons in Melbourne
Without home ground advantage and all the pressure on them to keep the Series alive, New South Wales find themselves underdogs to win the second match at the MCG! The Blues have won the only game played at the venue, all the way back in 1994. And while New South Wales and Queensland have shared 3 wins a piece in Melbourne, the Maroons have won the 2 most recent encounters in the neutral state! The Queenslanders are around $1.60 to make it 3 in a row while the Blues $2.35 outsiders.
Blues Captain Comes back but Maroons Missing Cronk
Returning Captain Paul Gallen is a huge boost for the Blues as they look to level the series, his go forward and sheer inspiration was missed at ANZ Stadium especially in the second forty minutes. Though perhaps just as crucial for New South Wales hopes is the absence of Queensland half Cooper Cronk. Cronk’s Field Goal won Game 1 but he’ll miss the match in his home town due to injury. The Blues beat their rivals twice in 2014 when Cronk was absent.
Queensland led 4 nil in Game 2 last year before 1 New South Wales try was enough to see them win 6-4. And if the same situation happens again on Wednesday night you’ll get your money back with from Tom Waterhouse if you’ve backed the losing side!
