Cricket One Day International: Australia to beat England?

Australia in England cricket betting preview and odds

Bet on the Australia in England 2015 One Day International series at GTbets!

England will entertain Australia at the Rose Bowl in Southampton on Thursday in the first meeting of their five-match One Day International Series. The hosts recently won the Ashes and also defeated the Aussies in a Twenty20 meeting by five runs. However the visitors are the favourites to win this event according to operators offering internet betting in the UK.

Australia have won their last five one day international matches against England. Their last victory came in February. They defeated England by 111 runs in Melbourne on Valentine’s Day. The last time England were able to beat Australia in a one day international came in January, 2014, triumphing by 57 runs in Perth. However that was the only England victory in a series that was won by Australia 4-1. I had a look at other operators’ offerings as well, and I’ve find out that GTbets offers very favorable online betting odds for Australia to beat England: it is available at 1.55 (11/20). 

Australia in England 2015: The hosts have their captain back

England, who will be supported by their recent results against Australia are 2.30 (13/10) underdogs to win the match according to GTbets. The hosts will also be boosted by the return of their captain, Eoin Morgan. He had a terrible One-Day Cup game on August 1 that provided remarkable bookie stories. He was dismissed for a duck, and after the event, he asked for a rest, which he was duly granted. On his return he helped England to beat Australia, hitting 74 off 39 balls in their last Twenty20 game in Cardiff.

Morgan told after the game, “I have been fresh mentally and physically, which has helped. It had been about 11 months since I had a break and that is a pretty long time. I have never asked for a break before and this time when I brought it up [Middlesex director of cricket] Angus Fraser was exceptional. He earmarked the one-day series and knew I had to be fresh for that so it has worked out well.”

This recent experience might help England to come over the odds on home soil and beat Australia on Thursday. However GTbets offers really beneficial online betting odds for an Australia victory comparing to other online sportsbooks in the UK. You shouldn’t miss the opportunity to take advantage of that, so join GTbets and bet on the game now! You will find there cool online betting odds for cricket matches regularly.
