Tonight, Wednesday June 22, the 2016 State Of Origin series continues with Game 2 taking place at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.
State Of Origin Game 2 Tip: Take Queensland to win by 13+ @ $3.60 through Ladbrokes.com.au
The Queensland Maroons are looking to wrap up their ninth title in 10 years and their 10th in 11 years after beating the New South Wales Blues in Game 1 three weeks back down in Sydney, and have the home ground advantage for tonight’s highly-anticipated rematch.
State Of Origin betting at Ladbrokes.com.au is unsurprisingly led by Queensland at $1.55 in the head-to-head footy odds, with the Blues at $2.75 for an upset to take the series into a decider for Game 3.
It was a gritty and low-scoring affair for the opening clash between these two great rivals, the Canetoads coming away with the 6 – 4 victory.
Currently Ladbrokes.com.au have $2 lines on offer in State of Origin betting, with Queensland to cover -5.5 and NSW +5.5.
The other major market going off is Footy Freaks.
For the Maroons it is Corey Oates to score first and Queensland to win at $2.75 and Greg Inglis to do the same at $3.50, GI set for his best performance in months.
On the other side of Footy Freaks betting, Michael Jennings to score first and NSW to win is $6 and $10 is on offer for Matt Moylan, who wasn’t fully used in the back in Game 1, at $10 for the same result.
State Of Origin history shows that Queensland really should come up trumps for the punters in Origin Game II tonight.
From the past eight games played at the old Lang Park, the home squad have enjoyed seven victories over the Blues who haven’t been successful here in six years.
The Laurie Daley-coached New South Wales were at home for Game I and still didn’t manage to hold off the visitors who were far from their best.
That doesn’t bode well then as they prepare to take on the Queenslanders again with an almost identical State Of Origin team, aside from Tyson Frizzel coming in to replace the injured Boyd Cordner.
For value in your State Of Origin bets tonight, tipping a much bigger win from Queensland could be the go.
Currently the Maroons are red hot favourites to win by 1 – 12 points ($2.60) ahead of the Blues to win by the same ($3.50), but a 13+ win by Queensland is paying $3.60 and three of their past four wins at Suncorp have been by over 12 points.
Other State Of Origin odds to look at include First Try Scorer where Oates (QLD) is the $10 favourite to score first as the Maroons have done in the past four straight Origin games at the venue and for the Blues Dylan Walker ($13) is considered the best bet, and Man Of The Match where Johnathan Thurston ($6) is the only player from either side under $10 to take out the honour.
