2017 State Of Origin Odds: Game 2 Betting Preview

June 21st, 2017

State Of Origin 2017 odds on Game 2, a must-win for Queensland, are heating up and despite their big loss in the series opener there’s money coming for tonight’s underdogs.

The mighty Maroons weren’t so mighty three weeks ago in Brisbane with the Blues dominating the State Of Origin Game 1 results 28 – 4.

Tonight, Wednesday June 21, the updated State Of Origin Game 2 odds have New South Wales as home favourites at ANZ Stadium paying $1.72 through Ladbrokes.com.au to wrap-up the series in Sydney.

Queensland have firmed in their price as State Of Origin betting underdogs into $2.30 after the confirmation Johnathan Thurston, who was outstanding in his Round 14 return from injury, was back in the mix.

State Of Origin Odds: Game 2

  • New South Wales – $1.72
  • Queensland – $2.30

There’s been seven major changes to the Queensland squad including JT as well as Billy Slater who coach Kevin Walters overlooked for the series opener.

With Slater & Thurston back it’s a powerhouse Maroons squad further boosted by the injection of some fresh blood including Coen Hess and Valentine Holmes, both more than capable of scoring a four-pointer or two tonight.

If the Queensland crew get the confidence of a first try – markets for which favour the in-form Holmes ($12) behind only New South Welshman Blake Ferguson ($11) – there’s every chance they can keep the series alive and turn Game 3 into a decider.

Should that happen, then the Man Of The Match for Origin Game 2 will be Thurston’s for the taking and the master playmaker currently pays $7 equal with the Blues James Tedesco ($7), who was outstanding in Game 1.
