Revenge is a powerful motivator, and punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au are counting on it getting Queensland over the line in State of Origin 3 on Wednesday night.
The Maroons are a pronounced $1.57 favourite to prevent a whitewash from NSW, who are priced at $2.47.
Nearly a third more money has gone on the Maroons in the head to head market.
QLD also dominate the first tryscorer market (Darius Boyd and Greg Inglis $9.00 favourites), and Man of the Match, with Johnathan Thurston ($6.00) and Cameron Smith ($8.00) the top two picks.
“Home ground advantage as well as the fear of losing 3-nil have been the contributing factors to such a short price for the Maroons, who’d still be stung by their first series loss since 2005,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
