Odds on India

Those of us who like to bet on sports in the UK, and bet on Test cricket in particular, found the 1st Test a struggle. England batted as if they’d never seen a cricket ball before, and India got nervy after their first wicket. Fortunately, for both sides, the rain arrived and the match ended in a draw. However with no clear lead going into the 2nd Test the odds on England at Bet365 have slid a tad. They’re now back on 6/5 with their opposition, India, rising up to around 6/4 to win the series. ... read more

England had to field a second string side. Five new caps. Stokes as captain. It was all a bit budget. However, their complete domination of Pakistan in the ODI series shows just how good England are at white-ball cricket now. They evidently have a depth of squad to envy. So, whilst the odds on India are shorter at online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365, England are perhaps the better wager. They’re a 4/1 bet on the T20 World Cup and those prices are worth snapping up. ... read more

After their humiliation at the hands of New Zealand, the odds on England recovering to beat India or, later on, Australia in the Ashes, look ridiculously remote. Their mentality was all wrong, their technique dire and their strategy insane. So that’s why online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 now give them such long prices to win the Ashes. From the selectors on down England got it all completely wrong and no one is quite sure if they’ll be able to correct the errors in time. ... read more

England went into this three match One Day International with high hopes. They’d come close to a series win in the T20 matches. They might win. That said, the ODI odds on England were never very good. India have improved as this tour went on. England, not so much. Eoin Morgan is sadly sticking to his guns despite firing blanks. Oh well. The silver lining is, of course, India are getting great odds to win the T20 World Cup now at online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365. ... read more

After the disappointing Tests you can bet on England hoping to save some blushes in the T20 games. Thus far they’ve not done too badly, pulling ahead in the series with a couple of matches left to play. However whilst online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 lowered the odds on England winning the series, issues remain. Not only are India rarely a pushover, but it appears that winning the toss is key. So should you back England to win the tossing series? Lets see. ... read more

For a moment, it looked as if the pitch was no friend to either side. However, England are always capable of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Their collapse in the 2nd innings matched their first innings effort. It was a disaster and made a bet on India to win the 4th Test at Bet365 a no-brainer. Online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 are already giving them short odds. Although, after England’s performance in Ahmedabad, they’re never going to be short enough. ... read more

Joe Root’s side face off against India again and the 3rd Test odds on England are better than expected. Sure, India are still clear favorites at online betting sites in the UK like Bet365, but England don’t languish. The series is all square so it’s still all to play for and England’s policy of rest and rotation could give them an advantage. Both James Anderson and Stuart Broad are available. So the tourists’ attack could give a nervous India some problems in this day-night game. ... read more

There is always hope that England will perform some sort of miracle again as they did in the first Test. After the second Test, a lot of those who’d bet on England will think they need one. India completely outplayed them and conditions seemed to confuse them so the tourists sank to a spanking defeat. Hence online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 aren’t offering great odds on England in the 3rd Test. Could England rediscover their winning ways? We’ll take a look. ... read more

It was a shocker. India were on a high after beating Australia down-under. The bookies rated them perhaps the best side in the world. Defeating England was not going to cause them issue. Online sportsbook sites in India gave the hosts the shortest odds and we expected England to get a reality check after Sri Lanka. It didn’t happen. Joe Root and his side continued to dazzle marching to a 227 run win. However, you can bet on India to win the 2nd Test now, or die trying. ... read more

Joe Root lead the way in Sri Lanka. He had two great knocks and England won both Tests convincingly. However, the tourists now move across the water to India where a very different challenge awaits. Online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 already have the hosts as firm favorites. Indeed Joe probably won’t find the odds on England aren’t very encouraging. They’ll need more than a super-scoring captain to overcome an India fresh from victory down under. ... read more
