As we head into the 2019 State of Origin series decider, punters a getting all over New South Wales to claim back-to-back victories.

Head-to-head & Handicap

Punters are tipping an official changing of the State of Origin guard with a whopping 71% of the money on the Blues to win at $1.39 (from $1.48).

Plenty think the victory will come comfortably, too.

Opening with a -5.5 line, eager punters got on early to push it out -6.5. That -6.5 has since been bet out to -7.5 ($1.85) as NSW continues to receiving significant backing.

If the Maroons are to win ($3.40) or cover the +7.5 line, it’s going to come as a surprise to the majority of Origin punters. Particularly the two backing the Blues in with $10,000 on the -5.5 line and $15,000 at $1.42.

Points Total

Despite the Blues scoring 38 points themselves in Game 2the total for Game 3 is just 35.5 points.

It’s another market a clear majority of punters are hitting with the Under claiming 61% of bets.

History is on that 61% cashing in. None of the last ten games at ANZ Stadium have featured more than 35 points scored. Meanwhile, 14 of the last 18 games (excluding dead rubbers) have fallen Under the total.

Origin Try Scorers

As expected, Game 2 hat-trick hero Tom Trbojevic is a favourite amongst punters to cross the line. With 13% of bets going his way, Tommy Turbo is the best backed in the first try scorer market at $12.

The old-faithful Corey Oates at $9 and Storm speedster Josh Addo-Carr at $10 complete the podium for the best backed first try scorers.

For anytime try scorers, Trbojevic ($2.40), Oates ($2.30) and Addo-Carr ($2.30) are flanked by Blake Ferguson ($2.10), Dane Gagai ($2.40) and James Tedesco ($2.40) as the shortest-priced favourites to score.

For those trying to predict when that first try might come, the markets are tipping an arm-wrestle to start. A meat pie before the eight-minute market is at $2.53 while anytime after can be had at $1.51.
