PUNTERS HAVE NO DOUBTS OATES WILL PLAY IN ORIGIN

In a sure sign that punters expect Corey Oates to make his State of Origin debut in game one, the Queensland winger is the best backed player in the first tryscorer market.

Despite speculation on the Maroons team line-up, one-third of all money bet on first tryscorer has gone on Oates, who is the $11 favourite.

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has taken three times as much money on Oates as they have on the second best backed player, Will Hopoate ($12), who’s under a selection cloud of his own.

NSW are the $1.80 favourites for game one in Sydney, but the money is running 6:1 in favour of $2.00 outsiders QLD.

“Punters aren’t waiting for the Queensland team to be announced. As far as they’re concerned, Corey Oates will be slotting in on the wing with Darius Boyd shifting to fullback for game one,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
