Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is finally starting to see some money come for NSW ahead of State of Origin 2, taking two $5,000 bets on the Blues at $1.54, and another $5,000 at $1.60.
80% more money has gone on the Maroons and one-third more individual bets, but a week ago the money was in QLD’s favour to the tune of 5:1.
The two biggest bets on the game remain on Queensland: $10,000 at $2.60 and $6,666.66 at $2.55.
- Three separate $5,000 bets taken on NSW to win Origin 2
- Biggest bet remains $10,000 on QLD at $2.60
“No one wanted to back NSW until we brought their price out a touch. Over the past 24 hours we’ve seen three times as much placed on the Blues so the support for QLD has dried up,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
