It might be a dead rubber, but there will still be plenty on the line for both sides in the final State Of Origin match for 2018. Queensland will be looking to restore State pride and send out Billy Slater with a win at his 31st and Final Origin appearance. NSW on the other hand will be hoping to put the icing on the cake of a tremendous Origin Series that has seen them win the Series for the first time since 2014 and just the second time since 2005. The last team to complete a 3-0 sweep was the 2010 Queensland team, while it was all the way back in 2000 that NSW last won all 3 games in the Series. The Queensland backline has undergone a reshuffle from Game 2 with their captain Greg Inglis ruled out through injury. That will see Dane Gagai move into the centres with Corey Oates moving to the wing and ‘DCE’ coming in at half-back at the expense of Ben Hunt.
With both NSW and Queensland having officially finalised their squads, UBET has crunched the stats and form surrounding each player's likelihood of crossing the stripe for the first four-pointer of State of Origin Game 3. James Tedesco lobbed up for first try in Game I and Valentine Holmes in Game II. The Blues' outside backs are absolutely stacked with pure speed featuring the likes of Josh Addo-Carr, James Roberts, Tom Trbojevic, Tedesco and Latrell Mitchell, who are all good chances of scoring first for the Blues. For Queensland, Holmes has been a popular pick after racing the length of the field in the opening game and scoring the first in Game II, while Dane Gagai, Will Chambers and Corey Oates remain fair shots.
