State Of Origin Game II First Try Scorer Preview
Who will get their team off to a flying start?
Valentine Holmes is a logical choice for First Try Scorer.
The Queensland flyer has four tries in five matches including a hat-trick in last year’s series decider at Suncorp Stadium and at $13 with TAB he isn’t the worst bet you’ll have this weekend. His teammate Dane Gagai is somewhat of an Origin specialist too with eight tries in as many games.
We are tipping the Blues to open the scoring though which is something they have done in three of the past four matches between the sides.
Josh Addo-Carr ($8) is the favourite with most corporates and it is easy to see why. The Storm winger bagged the final try in Game I and has crossed the line 12 times in the NRL this season and will be the logical go-to man for the Blues.
Don’t discount Greg Inglis in this market either.
The Queensland captain is $17 to bag the opening four-pointer and is the all-time leading scorer when it comes to Origin with 18. He has seven tries in 15 games at ANZ Stadium but most of those were at the start of his rep career.
Best Bet: Josh Addo-Carr @ $8
Value Bet: Greg Inglis @ $17
