It’s here. Game III of State Of Origin 2013 plays out at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium tonight with a do-or-die decider between the reigning seven-straight-series champions the Queensland Maroons and the perennial underdogs the New South Wales Blues.
Take advantage of bookmaker.com.au’s exclusive $2.10 lines on the State Of Origin decider tonight!
With State Of Origin kick-off scheduled for 8:00pm (AEST) there’s only a few hours left to get behind your teams with a bet on your State Of Origin teams.
The much awaited clash where the Blues will look for their first series win since 2005 is being spruiked as the biggest in history with the New South Welshman looking to stop the devastation of yet another loss.
This one would be an especially sour one too as they’ve lost their skipper Paul Gallen to a foot injury, and the game takes place in front of a sell-out home crowd.
Queensland went down in the series opener six weeks ago in Sydney but turned the tables with a hiding up at Lang Park for the second match where the Blues played with a defeated troupe having lost the likes of James Tamou and Blake Ferguson to suspension, and later Jarryd Haney to injury.
Now it all comes down to tonight’s 80 minutes and again it has been a far from ideal lead-up for the cockroaches.
While for the Queensland canetoads on and off field it has all been smooth sailing, including a cheeky trip to XXXX Island to boost morale, New South Wales have some big obstacles to overcome.
Aside from the loss of Gallen, Hayne is still out and Greg Bird’s fitness is also still an issue.
Still they get the home ground advantage for Game 3 for the first time since 2008 which has to account for something with Queensland having won only five of their 20 games played at ANZ Stadium.
Tamou also comes back for the Blues adding even more size to their big forward pack which is where they can win this game if they come with the right attitude.
And they’ll need to come out firing to get the job done too with the opening 20 minutes critical.
The team that wins the first quarter battle should prevail according to the State Of Origin history books, so who will that be?
The Blues with their home game or the Maroons who have shown time and time again they can handle the big pressure of a decider better than anyone.

Game 3 State Of Origin Betting 2013
To Win – Head-to-Head
Just want to back your team to win? Then go the head-to-head State Of Origin odds where New South Wales are the $2.46 underdogs and Queensland are at $1.56 to wrap it up with their eighth series win on the trot.
$2.10 Lines – Yep!
At bookmaker.com.au customers are treated to an exclusive State Of Origin betting promo with $2.10 lines up to a $200 maximum bet with NSW +4.5 and Queensland -4.5.
One Team Wins Both Halves?
History shows if you’re ahead at half time chances are in an Origin decider you’ll take out the match so at $2.30 for a ‘Yes’ to the question of whether one team will win both halves tonight (‘No’ paying $1.55) we think this is an awesome exotic bet.
This one could go down to the wire despite Queensland’s big gap in the head-to-head odds. If you think there’s only going to be 1 – 12 points in this then go for the margin betting. You’ll get NSW to win by that margin at $3.10 and the favourites at $2.50 – great prices!
Man Of The Match
Think you know which player is going to be ranked the best of the night? Check out the Man Of The Match betting markets where at $5.50 it is Queensland’s Johnathan Thurston tipped to take it out after his stellar game two performance.
Following closely at $6 is then New South Wales’ hooker Robbie Farah.
The other single figure men in this market are then all Maroons with big Greg Inglis ($9), captain Cameron Smith ($7.50) and Cooper Cronk ($8).
Go into double digits for value and you’ll find candidates like the improved Josh Dugan ($14) for the outsiders and star Queensland fullback Billy Slater ($12).
