NSW $1.65 favourites to win 2018 Origin series. 97% of money on QLD at $2.25.
Has online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au fallen for the New South Wales State of Origin hype again?
Just like in 2017, the Blues have been installed as favourites to win next year’s series. NSW is $1.65 while QLD is a juicy $2.25.
Not surprisingly, punters are all over the Maroons. In fact, 97% of the money is with Queensland, and 15 times the number of individual bets have been placed on the outsiders.
“Surprise, surprise! New South Wales are Origin favourites and the punters don’t agree with the bookies. History says this won’t end well for us but we’re taking the Maroons on,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
