The 2021 State of Origin betting odds foresee a New South Wales victory
At this time, New South Wales are favourites to win the 2021 State of Origin best-of-three series on Bet365 Sportsbook. Last season, they were in a similar position and were favourites to defend their title and clinch the 2020 series.
However, they failed to live up to their expectations after losing the 2020 State of Origin series 2-1 to Queensland. Now, they’ll be looking to make amends by upsetting defending champions Queenslansf for State of Origin bragging rights.
Undoubtedly, the title frontrunners will be looking to bring out the big guns in hopes of securing their 16th title. However, according to the online sportsbook news in Australia, the team lists have yet to be confirmed.
Nevertheless, NSW fans will be hoping to see Nathan Cleary, and Josh Addo-Carr in the 2021 squad. Both Cleary, and Addo-Carr’s performances earned them the title of the series’ top points scorer and top try scorer respectively.
Overall, New South Wales have the best 2021 State of Origin betting odds to win this season at 1.69
Queensland look to hold on to their State of Origin title at all costs
This time around, Queensland once again find themselves with low odds of winning the State of Origin series on Bet365 Sportsbook. As a result, the club currently pose as a risky bet on the online sportsbooks in Australia at 2.25.
However, last season, they beat their unfavourable odds of winning and defeated New South Wales for the 2020 title. At this time, they’ll also be looking to defy their low 2021 State of Origin betting odds and defend their title.
Despite, clinching last season’s title, Queensland will have to make some major improvements in attack, possession, scoring and running. Last season, these were the club’s major weak points and were title frontrunners New South Wales were most dominant in.
However, if Queensland can boost their overall attack, they could potentially defend their title and record an impressive 23rd title.
