2017 State Of Origin Game 1 Betting & Tips

May 30th, 2017

State Of Origin 2017 odds on Game 1 are now out and the Johnathan Thurston-less Queensland Maroons are slight underdogs for Wednesday night’s series opener at Suncorp Stadium.

The Queensland Game 1 State Of Origin team for 2017 is missing some really notable players including the injured Thurston, with Broncos player Anthony Milford making his Origin debut as the replacement five-eighth.

Milford is joined in the squad by a further five Brisbane players who will relish stepping out at their home venue for the big event, looking for their ninth Origin Game 1 win in 14 years.

The latest State Of Origin odds for Game 1 have Queensland at $2.05 and easing through Ladbrokes.com.au with the Blues the $1.85 firming favourites to steal the show in the sunshine state.

State Of Origin Odds: Game 1

  • Queensland – $2.05
  • New South Wales – $1.85

The list of missing Queensland players is nasty including also Greg Inglis, big forward Matt Scott and Billy Slater who was overlooked by coach Kevin Walters in favour of the call-up for Darius Boyd.

Boyd has been on fire with Brisbane and the Maroons No. 1 will be out to show he was the right choice, making him good value in the State of Origin Man of the Match odds at $10.

State Of Origin Game 1 Tip: Back Darius Boyd for Man of the Match at $10 – Ladbrokes.com.au

State Of Origin Odds: Man of the Match

  • Cameron Smith (QLD) – $7
  • Cooper Cronk (QLD) – $8
  • Mitchell Pearce (NSW) – $8
  • James Tedesco (NSW) – $9
  • Darius Boyd (QLD) – $10

Pearce is one of the more controversial call-ups by the Blues coach for Game 1 considering his recent poor record when playing in the best-of-three series.

He’s joined by a host of new generation State of Origin players for New South Wales that are out to make an impact including Nathan Peats there to attack from dummy-half and James Tedesco.

What the Blues have in forward-pack strength they may lack in confidence however and that could be the key to tipping Queensland in an upset State of Origin Game 1 result.
