Game 2 of the State of Origin series between New South Wales and Queensland features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Wednesday November 11.
Bet Of The Day November 11 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
After a disappointing loss in Origin Game 1 last week, NSW will be determined to bounce back strongly and make a statement in Game 2 tonight – and I think they’re set to do just that and register a convincing victory.
The Blues were by far the better team and were cruising by a 10-0 scoreline at half-time before completely collapsing in the second stanza, allowing the Maroons to waltz back into the game and ultimately come away with a 18-14 upset victory.
Surely NSW won’t slip up twice – especially against at home against one of the most inexperienced Queensland teams we’ve ever seen.
Queensland fought bravely last week and showcased their trademark ‘never-say-die’ attitude, but all of their tries came against the run of play – and when they were peppering the Blues’ line in the first half, they came away empty-handed.
I think the inclusion of Cody Walker in the starting side is a big boost for NSW – he provides some spark and much-needed X-Factor in the halves and should compliment the more composed Nathan Cleary, who can adopt a similar role to what he does at club level for the Panthers alongside Jarome Luai.
Josh Addo-Carr crossed for two tries last week and we can expect the flying winger to receive a lot more of the ball in Game 2 as he looks to continue his impressive try-scoring form at Origin level.
You can never count Queensland out of any Origin scenario, but they should have been rinsed last week and I can’t see the Blues making the same mistake twice.
NSW have a great recent record vs Queensland at ANZ Stadium and I’m backing the Blues home to cover the line for an emphatic victory on Wednesday night.
- NSW have won three of their last four meetings at ANZ Stadium
- The team that has lost Game 1 has covered the line in eight of the last nine Origins
- Josh Addo-Carr has scored at least one try in his last two Origin II matches and crossed twice last week
