The NSW Blues are $1.45 favourites at Sportingbet.com.au to win their first State Of Origin series since 2005 after a gutsy 12-8 victory over Queensland in a tough game one in Brisbane.
The Blues have also been installed as $1.80 favourites to win game two in Sydney in three weeks.
Punters came for the Blues late in betting for game one, backing them from $2.85 into $2.70 at Sportingbet. One confident punter had $25,000 on the Blues to win at odds of $2.85.
“The late move for the Blues was relentless and in the final hour before kickoff they attracted almost 80% of the money that came in despite being the outsiders,” William Hill’s Andrew Brown said.
