Queensland winger Darius Boyd is $9.00 favourite to get the Maroons off to a flying start by scoring the first try tomorrow night.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has taken two $1000 bets at $11 and $9.00 respectively, for Boyd to cross the line first.
His Maroon roommate, Greg Inglis, is the next most popular on $11.
Support has increased for New South Wales ($2.15), but the Maroons have received 70 percent more backing and remain $1.73 favourites in head-to-head betting.
“It would cap a great comeback from injury if Boyd can score the first try. He is extremely popular with punters, holding six-times more money than Inglis,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
