Maroons slight favourites to win Origin II
The NSW Blues have been installed as slight $2 underdogs to level the State of Origin series in game two at Sydney's ANZ Stadium on June 13.
Queensland are on track to take their seventh consecutive series win after Wednesday night's victory in game one in Melbourne, and have been installed as $1.80 favourites. They are short-priced $1.25 favourites to win the series, with NSW $4 outsiders.
“We expect NSW to be popular given the series is on the line and they are in front of a home crowd,” TAB Sportsbet’s Matt Jenkins said.
“At least one punter thinks NSW can turn the tide after having $3,700 at $4 on the Blues to win the series when betting reopened last night.”
Punters bet $4.1 million with TAB Sportsbet on Wednesday night's game, with 31 per cent of bets going on the first try-scorer market.
