Looking for some cricket betting odds this week? This three-match ODI series is still alive after England responded positively to a heavy opening defeat by squaring things up at Lord’s on Saturday. A total of 322 was more than competitive on the surface and a steady loss of Indian wickets saw the home side come through with an 86-run victory.
We now move up to Headingley for Tuesday’s decider and the sportsbooks suggest that it’s going to be tough calling this final game.
What are the cricket betting odds for England v India?
The bookmakers can’t split these two teams and Betrally are among a number of outlets who have both England and India available at the same win odds of 1.90. India looked to have the momentum going into Saturday’s match and Kuldeep Yadav maintained his own form, but the spinner saw little support as England racked up that winning total.
Kuldeep is a key figure again, but it is more about India’s batters and how they lift themselves after a poor display. It’s a tight call, but we predicted a 2-1 series win to India at the start, so we’ll stay with that opinion and look for the tourists to bounce back with the bat and take advantage of England’s attack.
Match Cricket Betting Odds Summary: England 1.90, India 1.90 (Editor’s Pick).
What are the top batsman cricket betting odds for England v India?
It was particularly pleasing for England supporters to see Joe Root return to form with a century and a Man of the Match performance at Lord’s and on his home ground at Headingley, Root is a popular pick in his side’s top batsman market at 4.50. That makes Root the joint favourite according to cricket betting odds, along with Jonny Bairstow, who is also quoted at 4.50, while Jason Roy is available at 5.50 with Betway.
Eoin Morgan also made useful runs and the skipper is on offer at 6.25, while other English options include Jos Buttler at 5.50, and Ben Stokes at 6.75.
For India, Suresh Raina top scored at Lord’s, but with no batsman passing 50, the away side were always going to fall short of their target. For Tuesday’s match, Virat Kohli is favourite to score the most Indian runs at 3.40, while Rohit Sharma follows at 4.75.
Shikhar Dhawan briefly threatened a return to form and you can pick up the left hander at 5.00, while KL Rahul is at 6.00 and Raina at 6.75. The usual longer-priced options sit in the middle order with MS Dhoni at 12.50 and Hardik Pandya at 13.00.
It’s tempting to take a small wager on Dhoni at that excellent 12.50 price, but we’re switching back to Rohit Sharma for this game. The opener made just 15 at Lord’s, but his century at Trent Bridge in the opener underlined his class and 4.75 is a good price for a man in excellent touch overall.
Top Batsman Cricket Betting Odds Summary: England: Root 4.50, Bairstow 4.50, Roy 5.50 (Betway), Buttler 5.50, Morgan 6.25, Stokes 6.75.
India: Kohli 3.40, Rohit 4.75 (Editor’s Pick), Dhawan 5.00, Rahul 6.00, Raina 6.75, Dhoni 12.50, Hardik Pandya 13.00.
What are the most sixes cricket betting odds for England v India?
As always, there are a number of choices for our final tip of the match: We’ve already seen two centuries in the series and odds of 1.58 from Betrally on any player bringing up three figures could be a safe pick at an admittedly short price.
We’ll finish, however, with the Most Sixes market where we think there is some value. India’s batters failed to clear the ropes at Lord’s, but we’re backing them to respond and as the outside bet at 2.37 with Bet365 to record most maximums, the visitors look quite generous.
Most Sixes, Cricket Betting Odds Summary: England 1.80, India 2.37 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), The Tie 8.00.
The press are talking about Kuldeep Yadav again and while he clearly has a part to play on Tuesday, it is all about India’s batsmen here and we’re expecting a positive response with a 2-1 series victory for the away side.
