Betting on Origin 1 has been turned upside down since Laure Daley named his side. Queensland had enjoyed three times the support before yesterday’s announcement, but only 20% of the money since that point has been on the Maroons.
· 80% of money since NSW team announced has been on Blues
· QLD most popular team overall with 57% of money
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has eased QLD out ever so slightly from $1.75 to $1.77 while NSW have firmed from $2.13 into $2.10.
24 hours ago, Sportsbet had taken triple the money on Queensland, but the Maroons now account for 57% of the money wagered compared to NSW’s 43%.
“Laurie Daley must have done something right because ever since the team came out, we’ve done nothing but take bets for NSW,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
