2019 Australia India ODI Series Odds Shift After Test Win

The Test series win the tourists inflicted on the wounded beast that is Australian Cricket will hang over the team nearly as badly as the ball tampering scandal has. Perhaps that’s why bookies are offering 4/9 2019 Australia India ODI series odds on the visitors winning that too, whilst the home side get a rather paltry 13/8 to salvage a little dignity. The big question now is, can they actually manage it?

We’ve been outplayed in some areas.” Said Australian Captain Tim Paine, those areas evidently being the grassy bits between the spectators we commonly call the pitch, and went on to say “We’ve got to try and look at the positives.” Although he quite probably meant “look for” the positives because they are not immediately obvious to anyone. The 2019 Australia India ODI series odds stand as they are precisely because the home side has been utterly appalling.

India, meanwhile, have shone. Captain Virat Kohli, picking out the bowling line up for special praise, said “I would rate their contribution far above that of any of the batsmen”. Although he’d be the first admit Cheteshwar Pujara has been every bit as important to the side as Jasprit Bumrah, and that the 2019 Australia India ODI series odds suggesting they may win that too is just the icing on the cake and will doubtless attract those who like to bet on sports in India.

Are Australia Out For The Count?

Bookies like BetRally offer 4/9 on India winning the three match One Day International series and the Australians just 13/8 to manage the same. This isn’t a massive surprise after their loss, but it’ll dishearten a side already wallowing in its own misery, and you have to wonder just how much appetite they have for the games ahead. The 2019 Australia India ODI series odds start badly for the Aussies getting just 6/5 to take a win in the first game while India garner 5/9.

That first ODI is going to be a test of character for the Australians, see if they can, as their captain insists, find some positives and build upon them. The skills are the same from Test to ODI and the Aussies will to have to start demonstrating they have them if they don’t want to continue their slide which leaves the 2019 Australia India ODI series odds from BetRally, one of the best online betting sites in India, so much more attractive for those outside Australia itself.

Aside from the 2019 Australia India ODI series odds, when it comes to who’ll be best with bat and ball over the course of the three matches, the superstar that is Virat Kohli gets 2/1 to be India’s best batsman. This is well ahead of Sharma at 11/4, Dhawan at 7/2 or Rahul at 9/2. Meanwhile it’s Yadav at 9/4 who gets the nod to be their best bowler, although Kumar and Shami both get a creditable 10/3 with Jadeja just slightly further out at around 9/2 at sites like BetRally.

Of course, it’ll be far more fun for those taking advantage of Indian gambling laws to wager on which of the Australians will actually manage to string a professional performance together. Indeed the fact you can get 3/1 on both Behrendorff and Stanlake to be top Aussie bowler explains why the 2019 Australia India ODI series odds are the way they are in the first place and that’s before you check out the 11/4 on Finch being their top batsman. It says it all really.
