There are a host of outright betting markets to take advantage of, as well as a wealth of in-play betting odds for virtually every match, whether in English domestic cricket or on the international cricket scene.

The Ashes Betting

An England v Australia Test Series is one of the biggest events in cricket and betting interest in these epic tussles has increased considerably over the years. The Ashes Series dominates headlines as the two teams battle it out over the course of Five Test matches and bookmakers provide odds for each Test:

1st Ashes Test | 2nd Ashes Test | 3rd Ashes Test | 4th Ashes Test | 5th Ashes Test

International Cricket Betting

Betting on Test Cricket has become increasingly popular as it is the longest format of the game and there are always plenty of twists and turns during the five days of action. Test cricket is the holy grail for most teams and there is rarely a dull moment during the year.

There is then the shorter 50-over format of the game and one-day international cricket is an important part of the sport as teams look to build towards the World Cup.

Cricket Match Betting

The most popular form of betting on cricket is to bet on the result of a match, whether it is a test match, one-day or twenty20 game. There are three results although the odds on there being a draw in any of the one-day formats of the game are very long. Check the form of the two teams and it's often good to wait for the teams to be announced and also who wins the toss as this can be a very important factor, especially in day/night one-day matches.

In-running betting on Cricket

The majority of bets you can place on the cricket, such as who will win, total score, top batsman etc. can be placed before the match starts, but most bookmakers listed also offer these same bets whilst the game is going on, with the odds changing all the time. There will also be a couple of extra markets such as 'Next man out' and 'method of next dismissal' made available whilst the game is in progress. Find out more about live betting in-running.

Cricket Odds

For test series betting you can get odds for the highest scoring batsman, most wickets and even match bets to use your Free Sport Bet offers on. For each game there is always a market for the highest scorer on each side along with runs in the first innings and runs per session, who will be next man out, how the next wicket will fall.

So as you can see if you are a real cricket nut there is always some Cricket bet to keep you interested, especially as all the Bookmakers offer an excellent Cricket in running betting market.
