Betting Tips

With their dominant victory in Game 1, NSW will be looking to secure the series and not give Queensland a chance to get back into it. Most NSW betting fans will be looking to get some value for their betting dollar given their short odds and selecting the correct NSW winning margin provides it;

New South Wales to win by 1-12 points – $2.70

OR;

New South Wales to win by 13+ points – $2.40

QLD Maroons fans will love pointing out that their team almost always rebounds after a big loss. However, this year feels a little different. QLD betting fans will be hoping that the potential of Kalyn Ponga and Josh Papalii returning will see them channelling Darren Lockyer and Arthur Beetson respectively and lead them to a win;

Queensland to win by 1-12 points – $4.25 

OR;

Queensland to win by 13+ points – $8.50 

NSW can and should win, but it would be a surprise to many if the score line blew out like in Game 1. Of the Betting Sites, the team at PlayUp offers QLD betting fans their best opportunity to win a few bucks by taking advantage of a generous line bet set for a punt on the Maroons;

Queensland +7.5 points @ $1.90

Key Statistics

  • In a good omen for NSW, through the 40 State of Origin series to date, the team that wins Game 1 has gone on to win the series 29 times.
  • Before you get carried away with the idea of a NSW 3-0 clean sweep, there has only been 7 clean sweeps to date. State of Origin betting odds show the Blues at a very short-priced $1.70 to sweep the Maroons, while for a 2-1 win, you’ll get odds of $2.50.

Overall Match Prediction

The Queensland Maroons are always a better team when playing at Suncorp Stadium where the record is legendary. NSW have won at ‘The Cauldron’ only 17 times in 54 attempts, however, this 2021 Blues teams feels different. Queensland will be better than in Townsville, but if they manage a series back this year, it could go down as their greatest of all-time.

 

The Blues selectors seem to have got the balance right in 2021 with Tom Trbojevic’s licence to literally play wherever he wants a coaching masterstroke. The Maroons will know it will be coming again but can they stop it? We don’t think so, the Blues should win the match and the series. Trbojevic has plenty of mates motivated to take the series away from the Maroons grasp before even returning to Sydney for Game 3.
