State of Origin 2015: Queensland’s odds shorten to win Game 1

In contrast, Sportsbet has already seen a couple of $5,000 bets on the Maroons at $1.80.

As a result, Queensland have firmed from $1.80 into $1.77 and the Blues have gone out the back door from $2.00 to $2.05.

The difference in popularity is even greater when it comes to series betting. There’s 8 times the cash invested on Mal Meninga’s men, who are $1.58 to win back the title from NSW ($2.40).

“If the current trend of money for Queensland continues, we’ll be looking at one of the most one-sided Origin series in history from a betting perspective. You wouldn’t know Game One is in Sydney given the amount of support we’ve seen for the Maroons,” said’s Christian Jantzen.
