New South Wales dominated State of Origin Game 1 and the Blues are expected to win Sunday's Game 2 and wrap up the series.

Their status as favourites to defeat Queensland at Suncorp Stadium is reflected in the man of the match markets with the Blues' top performers heading the betting.

Two players stand out as the best bets to be man of the match.

Best Bet: Tom Trbojevic

Turbo won the man of match honours in Game 1 after a three-try performance as he continued his red-hot Manly Sea Eagles form in the Origin arena.

There is no doubt that the Maroons will be out to stop Trbojevic's impact at Suncorp Stadium, but he is in such a vein of form that he is the key man once again.

Trbojevic is tipped to get among the tries again and if he does the man of the match award could be coming his way again.


Best Bet Nathan Cleary


Nathan Cleary will pull the strings for New South Wales once again and he is tipped to have another big impact for the Blues.

He kicked seven conversions and a penalty, which was the first points of 2021 Origin, in the 50-6 romp in Townsville.

The only thing missing from Cleary's game was a try. If he does cross in Brisbane, that could be enough the land him the man of the match award.
