State Of Origin Betting Options

State of Origin games will typically have hundreds of separate markets to choose from for each game. Like most NRL games, head-to-head and margin betting is the most popular, but player markets like first try scorer and man of the match are also a common.

Here are some State of Origin bet types:

Series Winner: As simple as it gets. Do you think the Origin series will be won by New South Wales or Queensland.

Series Correct Score: In this market, you are betting on the final score of the series. Will either side win 2-1 or 3-0? You can increase the odds on the series winner market, by having a go at the correct score.

Head-to-Head: You pick the winner of a each of the three games in the series. You win the head-to-head bet, it’s as simple as that. The longer the odds in a H2H market, the less chance the bookmaker thinks the team has of winning.

Line: Line betting gives punters the opportunity to bet on a game that bookmakers have handicapped to create a more even contest. How does a line bet work? Here’s an example: 

Queensland -6.5 vs. New South Wales +6.5. 

The lines given above mean that bookmakers believe Queensland is 6 points better than New South Wales before the start of the game. So, if you gamble on NSW at +6.5, as long as they don’t lose by 7 points or more, you’ll win the bet.

The odds on a line bet will start at $1.90 or $1.91 for both teams, but can come in if punters bet heavily on either side of the ledger.

Margin: Margin betting provides punters with the opportunity to not only pick a winner, but also the margin of that victory.

First Tryscorer: If punters can select the first player to score a try in a game, there’s some handy odds on offer. With 13 players taking the field for each team, there are 26 opportunities to bet on. It pays to do your homework and see who does the most scoring for each side, especially early in the game, but there are some big odds on offer for the guys who sneak under the radar.
