Inspired by the gap in the market, punters on Luxbet have charged into the NSW Blues finally breaking Qld’s generational dominance in tomorrow night’s blockbuster Origin 3 showdown at Suncorp!
Luxbet’s Neil Evans said the money had been dominant for the Blues in the last 24 hours, firming from a high $2.45 back into $2.25 after the Maroons strangled the early money! “Qld got into as short as $1.57 before easing back out now to $1.67. They’re loading up now on the Blues’ value, including a recent bet of $17,000.00 at $2.35, as well as several $1k, $2k and $2.5K three and four-leg multi bets – all involving NSW – to win anywhere between $30,000.00 and $50,000.00,” Evans said.
He added the bookmaker was “way ahead of target& rdquo; to write a record number of match bets in Origin history!
And while NSW captain courageous Paul Gallen remains a well-backed $6.50 equal second favourite for Player of the Match honours, one Luxbet punter has tipped an Anthony Watmough special backing him at $21.00 to win nearly $6,000.00!
“The money has also been strong for Greg Inglis to explode in the decider, firming him into co-favourite with perennial spark Jonathan Thurston at $6.00!
Evans said it would be intriguing how close NSW get to Qld in head-to-head betting, although the Maroons are “still on track” to go in a narrow favourite!
The guessing game is still simmering whether the Maroons will make a late backline shuffle-up and promote Matt Bowen to fullback, and leave centre Dane Nielsen out, although on face value, this surely would be “unlikely!”
• Meanwhile, Manly ($6.00 into $5.75) continue to close the gap on Mel bourne ($3.60 out to $3.65) in NRL premiership betting!
