State of Origin Odds: Punters pile on Maroons
May 16, 2012
Queensland have been cut to $1.45 by online bookmaker
sportsbet.com.au as punters pile into the Maroons to win another State of Origin Series.
It’s been seven
years since New South Wales had their hands on the shield and punters believe the Blues will have to wait at least another year
as they snapped up the $1.50 odds for Queensland to win its 19th State of Origin title.
The Maroons are
hot favourites to win Game 1 when the three-match series gets underway at Melbourne on Wednesday 23rd May and weight
of money on the opener has forced sportsbet to cut Queensland’s head to head odds for the match from $1.50 to $1.48 this
Melbourne Storm full back Billy Slater has been the stand out player of 2012 with nine tries in as many
games. The 28-year-old is the highest tryscoring fullback in the history of NRL and will be looking to add to his impressive
record of 11 tries in 17 representative games for the Maroons.
