State of Origin 2018 Betting Odds - New South Wales favourites to win Origin

  • New South Wales have won just one series since 2006
State Of Origin

New South Wales have been installed as favourites to win the 2018 State of Origin series despite winning just one of the last 12 contests against Queensland.

Queensland's Maroons continued their dominance last year when coming from 1-0 down to retain the Origin shield with a 2-1 victory.

That means that the New South Wales Blues have won just one series since 2006, that coming in 2014. They have also lost the last three series, all by the same 2-1 scoreline.

But New South Wales are $1.70 favourites to end that run in 2018 with CrownBet making them the clear favourites to finally score victory over Queensland. The Maroons are $2.15 in the early market.

The Blues had started the 2017 favourites and justified that by winning the opening game in Brisbane, only to then lose at home and again in the decider back in Queensland.

A 2-1 NSW victory is the favoured series scoreline at $2.35 with a QLD victory by the same margin next in the betting at $2.70. It is $5.00 for a 3-0 win for the Blues and $6.50 for a whitewash for the Maroons.

Neither side will have an advantage of playing at home twice in 2018 with the opening game being played on neutral ground at the MCG in Melbourne on June 6. 

Game 2 will be played at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on a Sunday on June 24, with the potential decider staged at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on July 11.
