2014 State Of Origin Game Three Betting Preview

July 8th, 2014

The third game of the 2014 State Of Origin Series will take place at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Wednesday night and New South Wales will have the chance to secure their first series whitewash since 2000.

New South Wales secured their first State Of Origin win in nine years when they defeated Queensland 6-4 in a hard fought contest at ANZ Stadium on June 18, but both sides still have plenty to play for in this so called ‘dead rubber’.

Leading online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au is offering a wide range of betting markets for the third game of the 2014 State Of Origin Series and our team of sports betting experts have analysed every possible betting option to come up with our State Of Origin bets.

2014 State Of Origin Game Three Head To Head & Line Betting

Queensland may have lost the opening two games of the 2014 State Of Origin Series to New South Wales, but they will still start Game 3 as clear favourites because of their excellent record at Suncorp Stadium.

The Maroons had a highly disrupted preparation to State Of Origin 2 due to a number of injury problems in their camp, but they have not had the same issues heading into this clash; with a niggling back injury to halfback Johnathan Thurston their only concern.

New South Wales have made a few changes to the side that secured them the series win; with James McManus, Brett Morris and Boyd Cordner returning to the side to replace the injured Michael Jennings and William Hopoate and the suspended Anthony Watmough.

While New South Wales will be keen to secure a series clean sweep, it is Queensland that arguably have more to play for and if they should be able to return to winning form at Suncorp Stadium tomorrow.

Suggested Bet: Queensland to beat the line (-4.5 at Ladbrokes.com.au)

2014 State Of Origin Game Three First Try Scorer Bets

There is always plenty of value to be found in State Of Origin first tryscorer bets and game three of the 2014 series is no exception.

Prolific State Of Origin tryscorer Darius Boyd ($9) and his Queensland teammates Greg Inglis ($10), Billy Slater ($11) and Will Chambers ($11) are on top of the first tryscorer markets, while there is $12 on offer for Daniel Tupou, James McManus and Jarryd Hayne.

Will Chambers will be making his State Of Origin debut and is an excellent chance of getting his side off to a flying start, while the $12 on offer for Hayne to open the scoring is great value for a player that looks dangerous every time he has the ball in his hands.

Suggested Bet: Will Chambers and Jarryd Hayne to score the first try ($11 and $12 at Ladbrokes.com.au)
