Brisbane are rarely the outsiders at home away from the Origin series, but they go into Friday night's double header as $1.95 against Manly ($1.85).

The prices are based on Peter Wallace being out of the Broncos side, but youngster Ben Hunt did an admirable job when he filled in earlier in the season. Manly are also coming off a shorter break, and really did struggle to put Canberra away in their 18-12 win. The value looks to be with Brisbane.

It is hard to believe that before the season got under way that the Wests Tigers and Newcastle were the best backed to win the title.

The wheels have well and truly fallen off at Newcastle as their injury list grows, and they were woeful against the Roosters last week. While they will be at home this week, the Knights are $2.15 underdogs to beat North Queensland, and there is little or no interest in them. The Cowboys have already attracted a couple of bets around the $2000 mark, and it does appear as though they may even start shorter. This will probably be the last time for a while that their team will be together, so the 2 points will be crucial.

The Origin teams will be announced on Sunday night, and no matter who NSW name, the Maroons will go into game 1 as red hot favs to win the series. After opening at $1.80, Queensland are now $1.50, and that price movement has come about due to a host of long term injuries to the Blues.

Betting to win game 1 will be open after the teams are announced, but expect Queensland to be short odds.
