It’s that time of the year again. State of Origin for 2011 kicks off on Wednesday at Suncorp Stadium.
Below is the schedule for this series:
Origin Game One – 25th May 2011 – Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane – kick-off: 8 PM AEST
Origin Game Two – 15th June 2011 – ANZ Stadium, Sydney – kick-off: 8 PM AEST
Origin Game Three – 6th July 2011 – Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane – kick-off: 8 PM AEST
The Maroons are certainly in the ascendancy at the moment with five successive victories. They also host two of the three games this series. Below are the most recent State of Origin results.
|Year||Winner / Holder of Shield||Wins||Losses||Drawn|
|2003||New South Wales||2||1||0|
|2004||New South Wales||2||1||0|
|2005||New South Wales||2||1||0|
The bookies have a QLD 2 – 1 NSW result as the odds on favourite. This is hardly surprising, given the Maroons have won four of the last five series 2-1. Below are selected odds for the series result.
Correct series score (odds subject to change):
