NRL State of Origin Game 2

Wednesday, June 26, 2024

8:05 PM @ Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne

This Wednesday night at the MCG, the Blues and Maroons are set for another classic State of Origin game 2.

Queensland, fresh off a win, is looking as dangerous as a snake in a sleeping bag coming into this week. Their attack was sharper than a butcher’s knife last game, scoring 38 points. Meanwhile, the Blues, with a defence that was less than stellar, with enough holes to allow those 38 points to flow through.

Points For (this season):

  • Blues: 10.0 points
  • Maroons: 38 points

Average Points Against (last season):

  • Blues: 22.6 points allowed per game
  • Maroons: 11.3 points allowed per game

Head-to-Head Stats:

  • Average Points For Per Match: Blues: 10.0, Maroons: 38.0
  • Average Points Against Per Match: Blues: 38.0, Maroons: 10.0
  • Current Form: Blues: L, Maroons: W
  • Completion Rate: Blues: 81%, Maroons: 71%
  • Tackle Efficiency: Blues: 87%, Maroons: 86.7%
  • Wins This Season: Blues: 0/1 (0%), Maroons: 1/1 (100%)

Stats-wise, Queensland’s got the Blues’ in spades. The Maroons’ defence is tougher than a two-dollar steak, allowing just 10 points last match. The Blues, on the other hand, are having a rough trot, managing to put up just 10 points while letting 38 through and looking like they will be following the same pattern as last year.

With numbers like these, the Maroons are tipped to romp home with a comfortable margin, and State of Origin games rarely have a close margin so expect the winning margin to be more than 13.

Outcome Prediction:

  • Final Scores: Blues: 11, Maroons: 30
  • Win Percentages: Blues: 20.7%, Maroons: 79.3%

 

Final Score Prediction: Maroon 30-11
