Queensland vs New South Wales Preview

With Game 1 of the 20201 State of Origin series being moved to Townsville a little over a week out kick off it’s no surprise to see Queensland shorten in betting.

The Blues remain strong favourites for this one though and they know that if they can pull off a win in game 1 it’ll go a long way to winning the series.

A loss here though could flip the series betting odds on their head and see Queensland favourites to win the series.

As always, this will be a fiery contest and one that you won’t want to miss. I still think the Blues are the best team here and I’ll back them in to win this game and the series.
