Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is struggling to find punters willing to back NSW in Origin 2, with 78% of money on Queensland to win next week’s encounter.

  • Money favouring QLD by more than 3:1 to level series
  • $10,000 bet on Maroons taken at $2.60

The Maroons have firmed from $2.65 into $2.45 while the Blues have gone from $1.50 out to $1.57 on the back of the support for QLD.

Three and a half times the money has been placed on Queensland and nearly three times the number of individual bets.

One punter has had $10,000 on the Maroons at $2.60. Other bets on the outsiders include the lucky amount of $6,666.66 at $2.55 and $5,000 at $2.65.

“No one has wanted to touch NSW since the teams were named so punters believe Billy Slater and Johnathan Thurston will be their state’s saviours,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
