2011 State Of Origin Game One Bet Types
Head to Head
The original and the best betting option that pits both sides against each other without handicap and without compromise. It’s a simple case of who is better on the day with no strings attached and no arguments from either side of the border.
As you’d expect on the back of five in a row Queensland are dominant favourites but key injuries have seen them drift with a wave of support coming in for New South Wales.
At the moment the odds show Queensland at $1.46 for game one ahead of New South Wales at $2.75
Bet head to head now at Luxbet.
As the favourites Queensland have been slugged with a six point handicap going into game one with New South Wales enjoying a six point advantage.
It’s probably a fairly big line considering how close these two teams look on paper but State Of Origin is the home of field goals so it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see a seven point differential at the games end.
Both teams have good goal kickers so that’s not an issue and you can expect increments of six every time a try is scored.
At the moment Queensland are $1.88 at minus six while New South Wales are a generous $1.96 with the start.

This is probably the most popular of bet types in recent years with punters looking to maximise their odds greatly with only a little bit more risk.
The numbers on offer for game one with margins are incredibly generous considering no one really knows how these two teams will face off against each other when that ball is kicked off.
If you’re a Queenslander who didn’t see a lot of value in the straight out odds then here’s your stake while for the New South Welshman you’re getting no less than four times your stake.
The current market shows Queensland by 13+ as the $2.65 favourite with a 1-12 gap at $3.10.
A NSW 1-12 victory pays a hefty $4.00 while 13+ will give you $7.50.
If you fancy a draw it seems well over the odds at $26.
