New South Wales remain favourites to make it a hat-trick of State of Origin series victories in 2020 after easing past Queensland in Game 2 to force a decider.
State of Origin Odds – AFTER comfortably levelling the 2020 Origin series at one-all in a 34-10 thrashing at ANZ Stadium, New South Wales are $1.50 favourites at TAB to defeat Queensland ($2.60) in the deciding third game at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday night.
Despite losing the opening game at the Adelaide Oval last Wednesday night, the Blues were heavily backed to win Origin 2 from $1.35 to $1.26 including bets of $20,000 at $1.29, $30,000 at $1.28 and $18,000 at $1.27.
The pre-game TAB odds of $1.26 for the Blues and $4 for the Maroons were the most lopsided prices for an Origin game since TAB offered sports betting in 1998.
New South Wales and Queensland were both $1.90 at TAB to win the 2020 Origin series before Game 2.
