State Of Origin Game 3 Betting Preview
July 08, 2013
Can New South Wales break Queensland’s dominance and win their first State of Origin since 2005? It’s come down to a deciding fixture at ANZ Stadium Wednesday 17th July and we take a look at the betting.
Origin 1 caught Maroons out as New South Wales recorded a 14-6 victory at ANZ Stadium in the opening fixture of the three-game series despite numerous errors from the Blues. But Queensland were not so forgiving at Suncorp and look to have the momentum for the decider after a 26-6 win which levelled the series.
It’s well documented that NSW haven’t had their hands on the Origin Shield since 2005 and with Paul Gallen’s fitness a concern, Blues look set to struggle again with Sportsbet quoting odds of 2.15 about New South Wales in the Head to Head market.
With Billy Slater and Greg Inglis the headline performers in the Queensland side, Maroons are expected to maintain their State of Origin authority with the same bookie offering odds of 1.70 on Queensland in Head to Head betting.
With the game being played at ANZ Stadium, this deciding State of Origin game could be closely fought which makes Sportsbet’s promotion an interesting offer.
