Asia Cup Odds
- Hong Kong – Eliminated
- Sri Lanka – Eliminated
- Afghanistan – 12/1
- Bangladesh – 10/1
- Pakistan – 7/4
- India – 4/5
There must have been a point when Hong Kong were 174 for no wicket that just an edge of panic must have crossed the minds of the India side, arguably the 2nd best ODI team in the world. Their tour of England had been disappointing, several of their biggest names were being rested and now a team that had lost their ODI status this year was showing them quite a clean pair of heels, the Asia Cup odds offered on India by online bookies appearing to have been woefully in error.
Of course India did manage a recovery of sorts, taking four wickets for just twenty five runs helped to win that match by a paltry 26 runs as Khaleel Ahmed impressed on his debut and Yuzvendra Chahal showed his class, the pair of them stifling Hong Kong’s chase of 285. If you like to bet on sports in India the performance was hardly inspiring despite the victory, and with a match against Pakistan looming India’s Asia Cup odds at BetRallyIndia seemed optimistic.
India Swing From Near Defeat To Vicious Victory
Precisely what happened to that hesitant side that turned out against Hong Kong is anyone’s guess but the team that strode out to meet Pakistan was an entirely different beast with Bhuvneshwar Kumar taking 3-15 and Kedar Jadhav snatching 3-23 which limited Pakistan to an almost embarrassing 162 after just 43 overs, which made their Asia Cup odds look just as wayward, and India pounced on the opportunity to stamp their authority on the tournament.
Actually living up to their Asia Cup odds Rohit Sharma, the replacement for the resting Virat Kohli, and Shikhar Dhawan both made a good opening stab at things to get India off to a good start and when they were dismissed for 52 and 46 respectively, Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik quickly gave the side 164-2 and a massive margin of victory. An eight wicket win with 21 overs to spare against Pakistan? Indian gambling news headline writers all but orgasmed.

Naturally with both teams having secured qualification there’s every chance they’ll be meeting again later in the competition but on the back of this result it’s easy to see why online bookies like BetRallyIndia have now given India top spot in the Asia Cup odds at 4/5, and Pakistan have slipped away to 7/4, and whilst it all might seem done and dusted there’s still that performance against Hong Kong to worry about. Just which India will take the field in their next encounter?
They could be the side that played as beautifully as the Murano glass chandelier at the Ca Rezzonico or they could be the side that just barely scraped by against a fourth rate side, and if you’re taking advantage of Indian gambling laws to back them at those very tempting Asia Cup odds at BetRallyIndia do bear in mind that if Pakistan and India can off days, sides like Afghanistan and Bangladesh can have good ones even at their 12/1 and 10/1 odds respectively.
