The money suggests it’s going to be a maroon-wash in this year’s State of Origin series according to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
90% of the money in correct series score betting has been placed on Queensland winning 3-0.
Despite the one-sided opinion of punters, that result is priced at $3.30 while a 2-1 win is the favourite at $2.25.
A clean sweep to NSW is the clear outsider at $12 and a 2-1 triumph to the Blues is $3.40.
Sportsbet is also offering $3.50 for Maroons five-eighth Johnathan Thurston to crack the 200 Origin points milestone in this series. Already the highest point scorer in SOO history, Thurston needs 26 more points to achieve the double ton.
“It’s no surprise to see the amount of money coming in for a 3-0 QLD victory. The Maroons are holding three times the money to win game one and a staggering 12 times the cash to win the series,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
