Head-To-Head Odds

New South Wales – $2

Always the most popular State of Origin betting market, the mighty Maroons are the narrow $1.82 favourites to dispose of the boys south of the border embarrassing them in front of a sea of Blue in Sydney.

Margin Betting

New South Wales 1 – 12 – $3

New South Wales 13 or more – $6.50
