Bet Of The Day June 26

The State of Origin Game 2 clash between New South Wales and Queensland features as’s best bet for Sunday June 26.

Bet Of The Day June 26 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • NSW have won the last four Game 2 clashes between the teams
  • NSW beat Queensland 38-6 in their only previous meeting in Perth
  • NSW’s last 10 wins over Queensland have covered the -3.5 line

We’re off to the State of Origin for today’s best bet as New South Wales look to level the series with Queensland in Game 2 at Optus Stadium in Perth.

NSW were ambushed by Queensland in Sydney during Game 1, with the Maroons prevailing 16-10. However, the Blues were well off the pace and still almost forced extra-time in the dying stages. James Tedesco also had a try disallowed for a forward pass that was a 50-50 call.

Queensland started the series better than what most thought was imaginable and they’ve suffered a big blow with workhorse Reuben Cotter ruled out for this game through injury, while Xavier Coates is also sidelined.

The point is NSW couldn’t have played much worse – Nathan Cleary had arguably his worst game in a year – and they were still right in the contest.

Brad Fittler has made a number of changes to his side for Game 2, most notably Matt Burton coming into the side at centre.

Burton was outstanding in that position for the Panthers as they won the Grand Final last season and his kicking game – which is arguably the best in the world right now – will add another dimension to the NSW attack and take some pressure of Cleary and Jarome Luai.

NSW have played well at this stage of the series in recent times, winning the last four Game 2 meetings between the teams, while they haven’t lost the first two games of a series since 2016.

The Blues also crushed Queensland in their only previous Origin encounter in Perth, prevailing 38-6 a couple of years ago.

We think NSW are good value to forced a decider tonight and with their last 10 victories over the Maroons coming by a try’s margin or better, we are also backing them to cover the -3.5 line.
