Queensland are favourites heading into tomorrow night’s Origin decider at Suncorp Stadium, but there has been good support for New South Wales to cause an upset, according to online bookmaker CrownBet.
Queensland opened at $1.60 following Game 2 in Melbourne, and have eased out to $1.67. On the other hand, New South Wales opened at $2.35 and have been backed into $2.25.
“We’re currently taking more money on New South Wales than Queensland, and obviously if the trend continues, the odds will be closer before kick-off,” CrownBet’s Haydn Lane said.
Queensland to win between 1-12 points is the $2.65 favourite in margin betting, while Queensland to lead at both the 40 and 80 minute marks is the $2.30 favourite in the Half Time/Normal Time market.
Johnathan Thurston is the clear $6.50 favourite for the Man of the Match award, while the line is set at 34 for the total match points.
The match is expected to be close, which makes CrownBet’s Origin 3 Special very appealing. Back a team to win with CrownBet, and if they lose by 10 points or less, you’ll receive a matched bonus bet up to $100. Full details available via the link:https://crownbet.com.au/promotions/origin-special
